Jennifer Zofcin is a senior associate attorney with Pollock Begg, where she focuses her family law practice on divorce, equitable distribution, support, custody matters and adoption cases.
A wife and mother of two active boys, Jennifer believes in a hands-on approach to parenting, co-parenting and children’s issues. This perspective translates to her professional practice, where Jennifer takes a client-oriented approach to her cases, allowing clients to play an important role in making decisions and in determining the extensiveness of the litigation.
Resolution through negotiation is always a central focus. However, when litigation is the best course, Jennifer relies on her widespread experience in multiday trials in Allegheny County and the surrounding Pittsburgh area.
Jennifer is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Westmoreland and Allegheny County bar associations. She is also a member of the Family Law Section of the PBA, the ACBA, and the Matrimonial Inns of Court. Jennifer serves on the Court Rules Committee, which reviews and comments on proposed changes to the Rules of Civil Procedure. She has acted as case note author for Pennsylvania Family Lawyer, a case note contributor for the ACBA, and has presented lectures on revisions to the child custody law.
Jennifer received a bachelor’s degree from Washington and Jefferson College in 1992. She continued on to the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, obtaining her Juris Doctor in 1995. During her tenure at Pitt, she focused on building her argument skills. Jennifer was a quarterfinalist in the University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s Appellate Moot Court Competition and was chosen to represent Pitt Law School at the Wagner Labor Law Moot Court Competition in New York City. She was also a finalist in the Law School’s Client Counseling Competition.
Jennifer entered private practice in 1995, transitioning to practice family law in 1997 for Bergstein & Galper, P.C. in Westmoreland County. She joined Pollock Begg in September of 2007.
