PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh divorce attorney and custody litigator Todd M. Begg will moderate an upcoming Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC panel discussion on trauma associated with high-conflict custody matters. “Through Their Eyes: Panel Discussion with Young Adults who Survived their Parents’ Custody Disputes,” is part of the Eighth Annual Pittsburgh Conference on Child Maltreatment and will examine several detrimental elements that arise during complicated custody disputes as well as provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the custody process from a child’s perspective.

The panel discussion is part of a two-day conference on April 25-26 sponsored by the Child Advocacy Center at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. Begg’s panel discussion is scheduled to take place Thursday, April 25. For more information, visit the conference website or call (412) 692-8766.

Begg will speak at the conference about the role of the guardian in representing children’s best interests to the court and the various ways the legal system provides a voice for children in custody disputes. He will join a roundtable of well-versed family law professionals and young adults who were themselves at the center of high-conflict custody cases.
