PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
The Philadelphia office of Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry is proud to announce that shareholder Stewart M. Weintraub has been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Legal Intelligencer, a publication of ALM Media. Presented at a celebratory dinner on May 29, 2014, the award honors a select number of Pennsylvania’s most influential lawyers and jurists.
The Legal Intelligencer selected individuals who have helped to shape the law in Pennsylvania, whether through their work on the bench, their prowess in a courtroom or their dedication to assisting those in need of legal services. The attorney must have had a distinct impact on the legal profession in the state and must still be practicing law.
A well-known and respected state and local tax attorney, Weintraub has been a leader in both the Pennsylvania and the national legal community for more than 40 years.
“I want to thank The Legal Intelligencer and ALM for this recognition,” Weintraub said. “I could not do what I do without the help and support of my family and my firm. I am honored that one of the legal community’s leading publications believes the work I do day to day is considered so meritorious that it should be recognized.”
Since being admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1971, Weintraub has focused his practice upon state and local taxation. From audits through trials and appeals to the appellate courts, Weintraub represents clients in all aspects of state and local tax compliance and litigation. His practice also includes helping clients’ plan and structure transactions so that all state and local tax obligations are minimized.
Weintraub began his career with the City of Philadelphia Law Department where he rose to be chief of tax litigation and where he served as chief counsel of former Mayor William Green’s Tax Reform Commission. In 2003, Weintraub was appointed to serve as a member of a new voter-approved Tax Reform Commission. He also has held leadership positions for the American Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association and has chaired or co-chaired the state and local tax committee for the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce since 1983. Now in private practice, Weintraub has been a shareholder at Chamberlain Hrdlicka since 2010.
