Todd M. Begg focuses his practice on divorce, equitable distribution, and custody matters with an emphasis on custody litigation. Todd has practiced almost exclusively in this area for more than 20 years; he is known for being articulate and experienced about statutes and case law. With a background in psychology and sociology, Todd is extremely comfortable litigating cases, including high-conflict cases, which may include issues of addiction, mental illness, or abuse. His education and years of experience have taught him how to aggressively analyze the critical testimony of psychologists, social workers, and other experts.
Before 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.
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 is an active participant in the lives of his two children. In addition to coaching his son's soccer team, he can often be found shooting hockey pucks in the driveway with his children or playing piano duets with his daughter. He is an avid reader and attributes his forthright approach to the law to Abraham Lincoln. He and his wife are competitive runners and enjoy training together in addition to tasting the local cuisine.
