HARRISBURG (June 8, 2021) — David L. Ladov, a partner at Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP in West Conshohocken, will be presented with the 2021 Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) Family Law Section Eric Turner Memorial Award during the section’s virtual Summer Meeting, July 15-16.
The Eric Turner Memorial Award honors a lawyer who is dedicated to the practice of family law and who serves as a mentor and teacher to fellow lawyers.
As part of the award, a $1,000 donation can be made to up to two charities of the honoree’s choosing. Ladov has selected: the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project, an organization that aims to end and prevent child abuse and neglect in Montgomery County through legal services, advocacy and education; and Society Hill Synagogue’s Food Insecurity Initiative, which raises funds to help stock local community fridges and pantries in Philadelphia.
Ladov has more than 40 years of experience in family law matters, including divorce, complex equitable distribution matters, custody cases, spousal support cases and protection from abuse matters for abused children and spouses. As the chair of his firm’s family law practice, he draws from his diverse experience to help clients better understand and handle their own unique personal situations.
A frequent lecturer for PBI, the CLE department of the PBA, Ladov was the course planner for the largest attended Pennsylvania family law seminar for 20 years — the Family Law Update. He has lectured on a wide range of topics, from custody relocation to business valuation, for both the PBA and local bar associations and area law schools. Ladov is the editor of “Slicing Up The Pie: Property Distribution in Pennsylvania,” PBI Press, 2010, 2nd Edition 2012, 3rd Edition 2016.
Ladov is a former chair and member of the PBA Family Law Section Council and a former case notes editor of the Pennsylvania Family Lawyer, as well as a past member of the PBA House of Delegates. In addition, he is a former chair of the Montgomery Bar Association Family Law Committee, and a fellow and former president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Pennsylvania Chapter. Ladov is a member of the Joint State Government Commission on Domestic Relations Law and a past chair of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Domestic Relations Procedural Rules Committee where he served as a member for six years.
Ladov received a B.S. from the Pennsylvania State University and a J.D. from Emory University School of Law.
