PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh family law attorney Brian C. Vertz, partner of family law firm Pollock Begg Komar Glasser & Vertz LLC, is sought after nationally to analyze and clarify how the recent tax law changes impact family law. He will be speaking across the country in the month of February as accountants and lawyers rush to advise their clients who are divorced, separated or considering a separation.

Vertz is available for interviews and analysis with media at (412) 471-9000 and www.pollockbegg.com.

Author of the nationally distributed legal treatise for tax strategy for family lawyers, “Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation,” Vertz is adept at explaining technical aspects of tax laws to clients and professionals alike. With an MBA and business valuation training in his background, Vertz concentrates his family law practice on divorce financial analysis, using his knowledge to benefit clients in cases involving closely held businesses, professional practices, executive compensation, and matrimonial tax issues. Vertz also publishes the insightful legal blog, FamilyLawTaxAlert.com, which provides current analysis on tax and financial issues for divorce lawyers and their clients.

Topics of concern regarding the new tax laws include:

  • New tax brackets
  • Dependency exemptions
  • Itemized deductions
  • Alimony deductibility changes

Some questions Vertz can answer for audiences include:

  • How do I keep taxes low during separation and divorce?
  • Should I file a joint tax return with my separated spouse?
  • What’s the big deal about the alimony deduction repeal and what does it mean for my pending divorce?
