Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano has been named by PhillyLabor as the 2019 Who's Who in Injury and Injured Workers Advocacy Program Firm of the Year. The award recognizes the firm's "exemplary representation of injured workers and disabled citizens" from across the Philadelphia area.
The firm's four founding partners were honored during an Aug. 6 ceremony at City Hall with the firm receiving a citation from city council.
PhillyLabor is an independent pro-labor media platform and service provider. The organization, through its Injured Workers Advocacy Program 501(c)(3), advocates for injured workers throughout the Philadelphia-area union community. Pond Lehocky was selected for the award by the organization's Who's Who in Injury and Injured Workers Advocacy committee.
The committee annually recognizes top legal professionals in the Philadelphia area who have dedicated their careers to representing and advocating for injury victims and injured workers. The Law Firm of the Year award is the highest honor bestowed to members of the legal community by the committee.
"[The] Honorees have dedicated their professional careers to representing and advocating on behalf of injured workers and disabled citizens with passion, commitment and in a manner that has restored hope and dignity back into the lives of their clients," the award's citation reads.
The citation says Pond Lehocky has "represented themselves, their firm and their profession in a manner that represents the highest standards of the law, and have therefore set an example worthy of influencing future legal professionals and advocates to choose the noble path of representing and helping injured workers and disabled citizens, who too often are unable to help themselves."
In conjunction with the award, an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live w/PhillyLabor Radio, the organization's radio program, will feature Pond Lehocky's partners in a one-hour workers' compensation special, broadcast on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT. Another episode, to be broadcast on WWDB 860AM, will spotlight Pond Lehocky's associate attorneys.
Pond Lehocky is especially grateful for this award because the firm's partners pride themselves as fierce advocates for labor. For Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, it’s personal; many of the firm's attorneys and staff come from union backgrounds and families.
Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano opened its doors in July 2010. Today, it is the largest workers’ compensation and Social Security disability law firm in the region and has expanded nationwide with offices in New Jersey, New York and California.
