Pittsburgh Custody Attorney Candice Komar to Discuss Angelina Jolie Pitt Divorce on ‘NightTalk’
September 23, 2016 | Press Releases
PITTSBURGH — Prominent Pittsburgh custody attorney Candice L. Komar will examine elements of the high-profile Angelina Jolie Pitt divorce filing on WPXI Pittsburgh Cable News Channel’s “NightTalk” tonight, Friday, September 23, 2016 at 8 p.m.
After nearly 12 years together, including two years of marriage, Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt have multimillion-dollar careers, luxury homes and six kids between them. Komar and other guests will likely discuss physical legal custody versus joint custody, co-parenting, prenuptial agreements and what to expect from Jolie Pitt’s celebrity divorce attorney during proceedings.
“Custody of their children will likely be at the forefront, as Jolie Pitt has filed for sole physical custody while asking the two maintain joint legal custody,” Komar said. “This seems incongruent with the mutual hands-on manner with which the couple has appeared to raise their children thus far.”
Regularly sought out by the media to discuss topical and cutting-edge legal issues, as well as high-profile national cases, Komar is a founding partner at the Downtown Pittsburgh family law firm Pollock Begg Komar Glasser & Vertz LLC. Her candid, hard-hitting and unbiased opinion garners her national speaking engagements and frequent guest appearances on “NightTalk” as well as on PCNC’s morning show, “PittsburghNow.” She’s debated with industry experts on prominent divorce and family law cases such as those of Tiger Woods, Jerry Sandusky and Casey Kasem.
A fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Komar is the recipient of numerous awards and honors for her exceptional work in the legal profession and service to her community, including earning designation as one of the Pittsburgh Business Times Top 25 Women in Business. She has been named to the lists of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers every year since 2007, the Super Lawyers Top 50 Women Lawyers in Pennsylvania since 2009, and the Top 50 Attorneys in Pittsburgh multiple times since 2009.
