Weintraub’s presentation was part of PICPA’s 2016 Greater Philadelphia Chapter Annual Philadelphia, Local, and Multistate Tax Update Conference, which took place on Dec. 6, 2016, at Springfield Country Club, in Springfield, Pennsylvania.

Weintraub has focused his practice upon state and local taxation for more than 40 years.

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.
