Ronald J. Axelrod & Associates, PC

Rochester NY Estate Planning Attorney



Professional Memberships

Professional memberships are an indication of how attorneys stay up to  date on professional trends and issues, maintain their legal education  credentials, and share information with colleagues and the public.  Ron  demonstrates all of these responsibilities by regularly attending local,  state, and national continuing education courses in the law.  He was a  charter member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and is a  member of the Estate Planning Council of Rochester, and the Corporate,  Real Estate and Trust and Estate Sections of the New York State and  Monroe County Bar Associations. 


The legal profession expects its leading members to contribute to its  body of knowledge on behalf of fellow attorneys and the public.  Ron  demonstrates that commitment to education and public service as a  contributing editor of GENERATIONS, Planning Your Legacy, published by  the Esperti Petersen Institute.  He regularly hosted a radio “call-in”  talk show dealing with Elder Law matters, and was a columnist for and on  the advisory editorial board of Business Strategies magazine.

Ron has presented seminars on Estate Planning and Elder Law in many  public forums, including programs sponsored by AARP and many of the top  investment and financial firms in the Rochester area.  In these  workshops, he makes extremely technical subjects interesting and easy to  understand.  When you need to understand the complexities of elder care  law, estate planning, and business matters, Ron is your go-to source.

Community Involvement

Public service is an important element of any law firm that cares about  its clients and community.  Ron has served on the board of directors of  many local charitable and philanthropic organizations, including the  Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester, Brighton Chamber of  Commerce, Pittsford Rotary Club, and Draper School of Dance.  He has  been an active member of the Rochester Rotary Club for over 20 years.
