Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano welcomes experienced attorney Daniel E. Pierson to its workers’ compensation practice. Mr. Pierson works as an associate out of the Firm’s Pittsburgh office, helping to expand Pond Lehocky’s reach in Western Pennsylvania.
Mr. Pierson earned his law degree from Villanova University School of Law, graduating cum laude in 2013. Following his graduation, he clerked for The Honorable Linda L. Lawhun of the New Jersey Superior Court in Bridgeton.
For the next four years, he practiced workers’ compensation law at two large regional defense firms. During that time, Mr. Pierson handled all aspects of workers’ compensation claims from beginning to conclusion. He has litigated claims across Pennsylvania and has extensive experience at hearings, depositions, mediations and before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.
For Mr. Pierson, these years of defense practice have provided him an insider perspective on how insurance companies treat injured workers throughout the claim process. He uses this knowledge to aid workers injured on the job.
Mr. Pierson can be reached at dpierson(at)pondlehocky(dot)com.
Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano opened its doors in July 2010 with six attorneys and only 22 total staff members.
