For nearly five decades, David S. Pollock has practiced family law to help individuals and families as they transition through tough times.

Pittsburgh divorce attorney David S. Pollock employs expansive legal knowledge, exceptional business acumen and a knack for team and consensus building to provide solid, aggressive representation. He is recognized locally, nationally and internationally as one of Pittsburgh’s most distinguished lawyers.

Inspired by his parents’ careers in medicine and social work, David learned the value of taking care of individual people and families. He founded Pollock Begg in 2001 to guide families through difficult periods of transition and strives to walk clients through problems that feel insurmountable to a place of renewed strength and refreshed view of the future at the completion of their case.

David focuses on the economics of premarital agreements, separation, divorce, unmarried partners, equitable distribution, support and alimony, as well as estate planning, business and family succession planning as an adjunct to his family law practice. He works with both traditional divorces, and large cases that require complex business valuation, framing of assets, net disposable income and taxation to help clients achieve their goals.


His wide array of leadership roles in legal and community organizations is a trademark of his extensive career. He serves on the Board of Governors and the Finance Committee of the International Academy of Family Lawyers, North America and as treasurer of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Pennsylvania chapter. He was editor-in-chief of Pennsylvania Family Lawyer for 23 years and is co-chair of Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Lawyers Assistance Committee.

Continuing a tradition of service to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, David currently serves as vice-chair of its Domestic Relations Procedural Rules Committee and will assume the role of chair in June 2022.

In his spare time, David can be found participating at Temple Sinai, the Jewish Community Center, around his neighborhood and in the community in a variety of volunteer activities. He and his wife, who is now retired from a nearly 40-year career in regional and economic development, enjoy travel — often coordinating trips with family law conventions and conferences. They also frequently travel to New York City and Florida to be with their two sons, two daughters-in-law and two granddaughters.
