Keld R. Wenge
“As a lawyer at Pond Lehocky Giordano, I have the opportunity to meet and represent new and different people every single day, and to go to battle for them against the insurance carriers who refuse to give them the benefits they are entitled to. The most rewarding part of my job is helping clients reach successful results in their cases and enjoy the victories together. My clients would tell you that my approach is to always be honest with them, for better or worse. They deserve to hear an objective professional opinion about their cases so we can make informed, strategic decisions together.”
