Brenna Boyce traces its roots back to founder Robert L. Brenna Sr., who graduated from law school in 1953. His practice was diversified and included representation for personal injury, estate work, real estate and general practice. His son, Robert L. Brenna Jr. graduated from law school in 1978, returning to Rochester to join the firm and practice law with his father. After practicing for years together as a family-owned law firm, Robert L. Brenna Sr. retired in 1985 after battling illness. He lived until 1989.
Robert L. Brenna Jr. continued his father's legacy at Brenna & Brenna. The New York firm continued to grow and thrive, taking on more clients and attorneys.
Sheldon W. Boyce Jr. joined the firm as a partner in 2007, and the firm became Brenna, Brenna & Boyce. Before joining the firm, he chaired the personal injury department at another firm for many years, after serving in the district attorney's office.
Today, Brenna Boyce continues to fight tirelessly for clients while upholding the family values our firm was created around. We are proud that so many families have depended on our firm to be their voice, leading to many fifth-generation clients.
"We recognize the fact that we have people's lives in our hands, not just files." — Attorney Robert L. Brenna Jr.
