Powers has her own Facebook group for women leaders, — The B Factor — and she runs a networking group where she engages multidisciplinary speakers to advance the needs of business owners and high-level executives.

Powers is the vice chair of the Arc of Monroe Foundation board and has served on numerous other community boards. She is active with the Rochester Women’s Network, Women TIES, Women’s Council and Greater Rochester Association of Women Attorneys.

Powers received her juris doctorate from Albany Law School in 1997.

Gooch relocated to Harris Beach from New York City where he practiced with a large international law firm. He brings extensive experience in commercial litigation, including business contract disputes, class actions, trademark infringement litigation and false advertising disputes.



Gooch has represented clients in the pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer products, food and beverage, and financial services industries. He has represented clients in state and federal courts in New York and in courts around the country.

Gooch received his JD at the Georgetown University Law Center in 2009.
