U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Law - Keeps Affordable Coverage in PA for Divorces
Thu, June 25, 2015 | link
United States Supreme Court ruled today against a challenge to the Affordable Care Act. With this ruling, Pennsylvania will
continue to have Federal Subsidies which makes obtaining coverage for a dependant spouse following a divorce easier and more
affordable than prior to the law. Another important aspect of this ruling is that it continues the practice of providing coverage
for persons with pre-existing conditions which can often be an issue in a divorce action.

The American Society of Legal Advocates Names Scott L. Levine as a Top 40 Under 40 for 2015
Tue, December 2, 2014 | link
The Law Offices of Scott
L. Levine, LLC is proud to announce that Attorney Levine has been selected to the 2015 American Society of Legal Advocates
Top 40 Under 40 Family Lawyers in the State of Pennsylvania. This marks the second year for which Mr. Levine received this
the ASLA Selection Process
ASLA’s exclusive membership comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers
nationwide. ASLA is both highly selective in extending invitations and in determining which specialties to include for a given
state. Because many specialties typically include listings for Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40, in order to remain
selective we ensure that each specialty in a state has a sufficient number of practicing lawyers to merit inclusion. Those
states with relatively low populations of practicing lawyers often will support only one or two specialties. ASLA monitors
practice trends from year to year prior to extending invitations in each state.
ASLA’s entire selection process
is conducted manually by lawyers. Prospective members initially are evaluated based on publicly-available information,
although member nominations also are accepted from current members, other lawyers, and past clients. Self-nominations and
nominations from public relations firms or advertising agencies are not accepted.
The selection process consists of
a rigorous, manual, multi-stage review:
ASLA’s lawyers comprehensively review available information for each candidate,
including a review of firm websites, client assessments, and publicly-available filings, which may include: verdicts, settlement
information, and information regarding transactions. Each candidate is assessed based on such criteria as educational accomplishments,
involvement and leadership in bar associations and professional organizations, activities within their community, and demonstrated
legal achievement. In the case of younger lawyers, ASLA also evaluates indications of developing success, both in a candidate’s
day-to-day practice and in serving the profession.
Each area of assessment is considered, and each candidate is assessed on his
or her own merits. Just as the student body of an elite university is comprised of individuals with many different backgrounds
and strengths, ASLA likewise strives to invite a range of members who have stellar legal credentials as a baseline, but also
a range of interests and activities.
After the initial list of nominees is prepared, at least one separate lawyer
reviews all compiled data and confirms nominations. To ensure the integrity of the process, no lawyer who participated in
the first phase of selection is permitted to conduct the second phase.
In the final stage, the list of finalists is again reviewed and candidates either
are confirmed for invitation or placed on a holding list for reconsideration the following year.
