PHILADELPHIA (October 2014) – Philadelphia tax attorney Stewart M. Weintraub of Chamberlain Hrdlicka will be a panel member for a presentation entitled “Business Tax Issues for Law Firms” at the Philadelphia Bar Association’s annual Bench Bar Conference, to be held at the Borgata in Atlantic City.
Weintraub also recently was a co-course planner for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s program “Philadelphia and Commonwealth Taxes.” Held on Sept. 16, 2014 in Philadelphia, the program outlined tax-saving tips on state and local taxes, as well as how to handle a tax appeal and the fine points of Philadelphia’s business taxes.
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.
In 2014, Weintraub was honored with a Lifetime Achievement award by The Legal Intelligencer, an ALM publication. Weintraub lives in Cherry Hill, N.J.
