August 12, 2021

Goldberg Segalla’s Hillary N. Ladov was featured in the Summer 2021 edition of The Philadelphia Lawyer as part of the magazine’s cover story, “Lawyers in the Family.”

Hillary, a member of the firm’s Global Insurance Services practice in Philadelphia, discusses the dynamics of living in a family of lawyers and whether her decision to pursue law was influenced by her parents.

“Unlike many young lawyers, I began my law career with a deep understanding of the business of practicing law,” Hillary said. “This has aided my professional development immensely. Also, growing up around lawyers and judges made my first court appearance, deposition, etc. much less intimidating than it otherwise would have been.”

Hillary’s parents are Sayde Ladov of Dolchin, Slotkin & Todd, and David Ladov of Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell & Hippel.
