Seth I. Corbin was profiled in the Pittsburgh Business Times article, "Fast Tracker: Seth Corbin." Full text can be found in the June 27, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is noted below.

For eight years, Seth Corbin has served as a big brother to a young man named Nick. Since joining Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh and being paired with Nick, Corbin has increased his involvement and was asked to join the organization’s board of directors.

“In January, they elected me to the president’s role,” Corbin said. “It’s like my second full-time job.”

Corbin’s full-time job is as an attorney in the Pittsburgh office of the nationwide law firm of Fox Rothschild LLP.

Corbin first heard about Big Brothers Big Sisters from a paralegal at Fox while he was in law school and clerking for the firm.

“It seemed like a natural fit,” Corbin said. “I like kids, and seeing the work this person was doing and the positive impact it had really moved me.”

Corbin has remained close to Nick since meeting him eight years ago.

“He’s essentially part of my family,” Corbin said.

Corbin has helped run fundraisers for the organization, which have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through the years, and remains committed to serving the community as president of the board of directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh.

“It’s second nature to give the requisite amount of time to make sure I fulfill that responsibility,” he said.

At Fox, Corbin focuses his practice on corporate law, employee benefits, executive compensation, employment law, estate planning, health law and taxation.

“The nice thing about my firm is that even in the beginning, they’ve been big proponents of allowing me to get out in the community and essentially build my own book of business,” Corbin said.

His ability to relate well to clients has allowed him to be successful in that regard, said Corbin.

“People tell me I listen more than other attorneys they work with,” he said. “It’s an underrated skill in my field.”
