Pond Lehocky welcomes Mr. Conor Shields as an associate workers’ compensation attorney. He is a former Philadelphia assistant district attorney where he spent seven years and thousands of hours in the courtroom handling criminal prosecutions at every stage. At the District Attorney’s Office he was employed in the Central Division Bureau, prosecuting major violent crimes and criminal organizations in the Center City Philadelphia and Temple University areas.
Mr. Shields is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in history and J.D. His legal career has focused entirely on serving the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and ensuring that the rights of victims, be they of crime or injury, are protected.
He is eager to continue assisting Pennsylvanians in his new role at Pond Lehocky.
“After seven years proudly serving the citizens of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as an assistant district attorney, I felt up for a new challenge in the legal profession and concluded that it was time for a change,” he said. “In that spirit, Pond Lehocky offered me the opportunity to continue serving the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, but in a different capacity — defending the rights of injured workers.”
