The ACBF Pro Bono Center is the nexus between the members of the bar association and projects and member organizations which provide direct legal services to low-income individuals. The center’s mission is to provide well-trained attorney volunteers to help meet the legal needs of the impoverished in Allegheny County. Pro Bono Week is a time to thank volunteers and acknowledge the life-altering service pro bono attorneys perform on behalf of low-income clients.
Joe is frequently honored and recognized for his legal merit and community involvement. Joe joined Pollock Begg as a law clerk in 2008, was promoted to associate in 2009, and joined the leadership ranks as partner in 2014. He was recently named to the Best Lawyers in America 2018 lists for family law, family law arbitration and family law mediation. Also in 2017, Joe received the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award from the Allegheny County Bar Association. In 2013, he was named to Lawyers on the Fast Track by The Legal Intelligencer, an honor bestowed upon just 38 attorneys statewide. He has also been named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars list since 2012.
Pollock Begg is a champion for giving back to the community and encourages our staff to participate in volunteer and pro bono endeavors via industry organizations and throughout the entire Pittsburgh community.
