Noteworthy: Recipient of the Pennsylvania Bar Association's 2013 Special Achievement Award, which recognizes lawyers who have provided time and resources to improve the association and the legal profession. Pollock was recognized, in part, for his role as editor-in-chief of the Pennsylvania Family Lawyer, the official quarterly of the PBA Family Law Section.

Age: 63

Residence: Squirrel Hill

Family: Wife, Rita; two adult sons, Adam and Josh; granddaughter, Madeleine

Occupation: Founding partner of family law firm Pollock Begg Komar Glasser & Vertz, Downtown

Background: Pollock, a family law attorney for 40 years, is an author and lecturer on legal matters. He has been named to Best Lawyers in America for more than 15 years and Pennsylvania Super Lawyers since its inception in 2004.

Education: Bachelor's degree in anthropology from Penn State; law degree from Duquesne University

Quote: “It's something that I love to do, I guess after 18 years, I must love it,” Pollock said of the quarterly. “It's hard to do family law. If we can foster fellowship, it's a good thing. If we can make them better lawyers, then we've done something good.”
