About Us

Bruce Volbeda, Attorney
I help people and companies with a broad range of business and transactional law issues, with the goal of enabling their projects and innovations to Go Forward. Every successful transaction that you achieve is a victory for you, your customers and project partners, and I enjoy helping make those happen.
With my background in large-firm civil litigation, in-house and general counsel experience, and an extensive U.S. and international transactional practice, I am able to apply a broad range of skills to clients’ legal issues.
In addition to handling specific legal cases and business projects for clients, I provide consulting general counsel services to companies and organizations that do not have full-time legal staff.
I have also had the privilege to assist and serve with a number of outstanding nonprofit organizations that make the world a better place, including EarthCorps, Rochester Legal Aid Society, Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, Sierra Club, Court Appointed Special Advocates for children, and others.
Prior to practicing law, I taught college English and worked in publishing, media and the music industry.
