RBJ’s Power 50 Law 2022

RBJ’s Power 50 Law 2022

We are pleased to present our final Power List for 2022: our Power 50 Law list.

The list contains a number of lawyers who are running a law firm or the Rochester office of a law firm, but it also includes judges, civil legal services leaders, and more.

The people on this list help make sure the legal needs of Rochester’s companies and residents are met, and they have helped limit the disruption the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. They are working to push the Rochester legal community forward during a time of uncertainty and change, and we are excited to see what they are able to accomplish going forward.

As with our previous lists, the Power 50 Law list is presented in alphabetical order. And again, rather than tell you about all of these power players’ accomplishments and accolades, we decided to give them a chance to tell you more about themselves through their answers to a few different questions.

I welcome any feedback you have at [email protected]. If you would like to make a suggestion for a future Power List, you can do so at https://rbj.net/power-list-recommendation-form/.
