Three lawyers with Philadelphia-based Cozen O’Connor have joined fellow city firm
Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel’s Family Law Department, what the latter calls one of the largest family law practices in the commonwealth.
David L. Ladov, who had been co-chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Family Law Practices Group, along with attorneys Stephanie H. Winegrad and Scott Matison, will move over to Obermayer Rebmann and continue their work in all areas of domestic relations, including divorce, custody, child support, equitable distribution and abuse.
“Bringing on David, Stephanie and Scott is a real coup for our family law practice,” Robert I. Whitelaw, Obermayer’s managing partner and co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Department, said in a statement. “Their reputation precedes them, and we are thrilled to add their knowledge and skills to our existing bench strength.”
The three attorneys will work out of Obermayer’s newly opened office in Conshohocken, which is located just outside of Philadelphia.
According to a news release from Obermayer, Ladov typically handles both routine and complex cases, representing clients in a wide range of matters involving what the firm terms the most “personal and sensitive legal issues that affect every aspect of families in transition.”
Ladov is a past president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and he is currently a member of the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association.
He also previously chaired the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Family Law Section.
Ladov currently serves as vice chair of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Domestic Relations Procedural Rules Committee.
Winegrad, according to a bio provided by Obermayer, represents clients in family law matters such as divorce, custody and support.
She frequently lectures on family law topics for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and both the Pennsylvania and Montgomery Bar Associations.
Winegrad is currently a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Family Law Section and she is the treasurer of the Montgomery Bar Family Law Section.
Matison specializes in cases involving divorce, custody, support and abuse in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
He is a member of the Family Law Sections of the Pennsylvania and Montgomery Bar Associations, and he co-chairs the Equitable Distribution and Alimony Committee for the Montgomery Bar Association.
“Obermayer offers a tremendous opportunity for us to continue to provide top-notch advocacy services to our clients,” Ladov said in a statement. “Both teams have had mutual respect for each other over the years, and we look forward to combining synergies.”
