August 18, 2022 | Press Releases
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh family law firm Pollock Begg made an impressive showing in the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America with seven of the firm’s divorce attorneys named to the prestigious guide. Pollock Begg partners captured special recognition for their mediation and arbitration work.
Partners Todd M. Begg, Daniel H. Glasser, Candice L. Komar, David S. Pollock, Heather Trostle Smith, Brian C. Vertz and Joseph R. Williams each earned spots in the 2023 guide released today by Best Lawyers.
Attorneys on The Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas, reviewed by their peers based on professional expertise and undergo an authentication process to ensure they are in current practice and in good standing. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has developed a reputation as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals.
Pollock Begg leadership has maintained space in the prestigious guides since Pollock first made the list 26 years ago.
“We’re pleased to consistently have so many of our professionals appear in the Best Lawyers listings,” said Pollock Begg Partner Joseph R. Williams, who celebrates his fifth year of recognition in 2023. “We’re proud of all our team has accomplished over the past year and congratulate Dan and Todd on their notable achievement of ‘Lawyer of the Year’ distinction.”
Based on particularly impressive voting averages received during peer review assessments, Glasser was selected as Pittsburgh “Lawyer of the Year” in Family Law Arbitration, while Begg received the designation for Family Law Mediation. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade especially significant.
