Stephen R. Miller
“I became a workers’ compensation lawyer because I wanted to participate in the adversarial process that is the bedrock of our country’s legal system, and which protects the rights and dignity of the individual. By representing injured workers and helping them obtain the benefits they’re entitled to, I have the privilege and opportunity to be in that arena every single day. The best part about my work at Pond Lehocky Giordano is the feeling I get when I can assure a client that everything is going to work out and then I can make it so. It is so rewarding to help clients and their families navigate and overcome what may be one of the most difficult periods of their lives. When working with my clients, I strive to be an empathetic, transparent, and relentless advocate for their best interests.”

Stephen R. Miller leads Pond Lehocky’s Pittsburgh office. Since his admission to the Pennsylvania bar in 2000, he has dedicated his practice to workers’ compensation law and has litigated countless cases throughout central and western Pennsylvania.
Mr. Miller spent the first 15 years of his legal career as a workers’ compensation defense litigator, representing employers and insurance companies at a large regional firm where he quickly advanced to partner. These many years of defense practice and corporate consultation provided Mr. Miller with extensive knowledge of Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law and how the insurance industry manages claims. In 2016, Mr. Miller concluded that he wanted to advocate for injured workers and left his long-time position to open Pond Lehocky’s Pittsburgh office. Since then, he has exclusively represented claimants.
Mr. Miller speaks regularly on workers’ compensation issues. He has been selected as a Super Lawyers® Rising Star and Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® on multiple occasions and was named to the Best Lawyers in America® 2018 and 2019 lists.
