Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Out of well over a hundred nominations for exceptional attorneys across Pennsylvania, only 38 were finally chosen to receive this accolade. “Lawyers on the Fast Track” are selected based on their early career accomplishments and leadership roles within their practice, organization, and the larger community, and David Stern’s record of achievement in these areas is outstanding.
As a fervent advocate for workers’ rights, David Stern is relentless in his pursuit of justice for injured workers. Mr. Stern has recovered tens of millions of dollars in workers’ compensation benefits for his clients. This includes many cases in which he cut his fee and/or recovered medical funds for his client, from which he does not take a fee.
David Stern has been named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars list on multiple occasions, the Super Lawyers list for 2012 and 2013, the Top 100 in PA and Top 100 in Philadelphia lists for Super Lawyers 2013, the Best Lawyers list in both 2012 and 2013, and the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association (PTLA) Future Leaders Select Committee. He was also appointed to the PTLA’s Board of Directors on July 1 of this year.
In addition to his legal accomplishments, Mr. Stern is a standout volunteer in the community, actively engaging in pro bono endeavors for the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program (Philly VIP). In September of 2011, his exceptional service was recognized with his selection as Philly VIP’s volunteer of the month. And thanks to his work with Philly VIP, he was named to the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania Pro Bono Honor Roll for the fourth time in 2012.
David Stern has focused his practice exclusively on representing injured workers since 2004 and is one of the founding partners of Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, the region’s largest and fastest-growing workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability law firm. Along with handling his own caseload, Mr. Stern oversees all of the workers’ compensation associates’ practices at Pond Lehocky, and has been published and is a frequent lecturer on workers’ compensation law.
