Pittsburgh Family Law Firm Partner to Present on Tax Strategy
November 02, 2016 | Community
Brian C. Vertz, a partner at our Pittsburgh Family Law Firm, will speak on the top 10 cases in family law taxation for 2016 to an audience of more than 200 family lawyers from across the United States, at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers on Thursday, Nov. 3.
A prominent industry leader and frequent speaker on matrimonial tax law, Brian will deliver the first annual Melvyn B. Frumkes Memorial Tax Lecture at the conference, honoring the late Melvyn B. Frumkes with whom he co-authored the book “Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation.” The next update of this nationally recognized legal handbook on tax strategy in family law is scheduled to release in January 2017. Earlier this year, Brian also presented to the American Institute of CPAs and the Association of Divorce Financial Planners at their national conferences.
Brian was elected AAML fellow in 2003, and has served on numerous committees at the state and national levels. He currently serves as first vice president of the AAML’s Pennsylvania chapter, and as co-chair of the national Practice & Technology Committee, as well as co-chair of the Amicus Committee, which advises the U.S. Supreme Court on family law issues.
Pollock Begg has a long-standing tradition of dedication to service, leadership and education within the legal community. Our family law attorneys frequently speak and author publications for the Allegheny County and Pennsylvania bar associations and often serve as mentors to younger attorneys within both organizations. Many of our family law attorneys are active in national and international organizations within the industry as well, and partners Candice Komar and David Pollock are also AAML fellows.
The AAML is a national organization of more than 1650 fellows across the United States dedicated to providing leadership that promotes the highest degree of excellence and professionalism within the practice of family law. Academy fellows are highly skilled negotiators and litigators in all facets of family law, including divorce, annulment, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, marital settlement agreements, child custody and visitation, business valuations, property valuations and division, alimony, child support and other family law issues.
