EMPOWERING INJURED WORKERS BY FIGHTING
FOR THEIR RIGHTS.
Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, one of the fastest growing legal
practices in Pennsylvania, specializes in workers’ compensation
and Social Security disability law. Just this year, among the firm’s
exceptional settlements was the largest workers’ compensation
claim in the country, which earned a record $3 million for an injured
client, and a $1.1 million settlement awarded to a stroke victim.
“Our clients come to us in the midst of tragedy,” explains
managing partner Sam Pond. “Our job is to fight for their
rights, make clients feel comfortable through a difficult time
and put them on a better path in life.”
A TOUGH OFFENSIVE LINE In times of uncertainty and
vulnerability, Pond Lehocky is the team to turn to. With over
70 trained staff, along with expert attorneys with more than 75
years of combined expertise, the firm ensures the best possible
experience for their clients.
At Pond Lehocky, we believe that health and safety are the
foundation upon which strong communities are built. That’s why
our attorneys volunteer with Philly Volunteers for the Indigent
Program (Philly VIP) and founded the Marie Pond Scholarship
for high school athletes. We are proud sponsors of the March
of Dimes and the Epilepsy Foundation, among other local
organizations. Our commitment to community is what makes
our annual Turkey and Holiday Drives so successful. It is a
great privilege for us to use our skills to heal when it comes to
obtaining justice, but just as important to us is being able to use
our resources to better the community in which we practice.
