    Attorney Profile

    Todd M. Begg is a family law attorney with Pollock Begg in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more than 20 years, he has focused his practice almost exclusively on divorce, equitable distribution and custody matters with an emphasis on custody litigation.

    Todd is known for being articulate and knowledgeable of statutes and case law, and uses this knowledge to benefit clients. With a background in psychology and sociology, he has litigated many complex, high-conflict cases, which include issues of addiction, mental illness or abuse. His education and years of experience have enabled him to aggressively analyze the critical testimony of psychologists, social workers and other experts.

    Before co-founding Pollock Begg in 2001, Todd worked as a senior attorney with the law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll in its Family Law Group, and prior to that, he served as part of the Matrimonial Law Group at Reed Smith. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1989. He received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in psychology and sociology in 1986 from the University of Richmond.

    Todd has tried numerous economic and custody cases in Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania. He is an active lecturer on family law-related matters and has previously lectured on custody, support and discovery in divorce actions for local and state bar associations as well as the Pennsylvania Bar Institute.

    Todd has been named to Best Lawyers in America since 2007 and was distinguished as being repeatedly listed among the Top 50 Pittsburgh Super Lawyers.
