About Me

For nearly four decades, David Pollock has practiced family law to help individuals and families as they go through tough times. He is a founding member of Pollock Begg Komar Glasser & Vertz LLC and was previously a partner and head of the Matrimonial Law Group at Reed Smith LLP.


David focuses on the economics of pre-marital agreements, separation, divorce, or unmarried partners, estate planning, business and family succession planning, equitable distribution, support, and alimony. He works with both traditional divorces and large cases that require complex business valuation, framing of assets, net disposable income, taxation, and all aspects of complicated financial matters involved in such cases.
