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

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

workers throughout the claim process. He uses this knowledge to aid workers
injured on the job.
