Recently, Managing Partner Sam Pond was a featured as a call-in guest on Today in PhillyLabor’s radio show. He discussed Pond Lehocky’s continual growth and expansion, the firm’s commitment to political action and what to do if you’ve been injured on the job.
Sam also discussed his strong personal connection to organized labor.
“I grew up in a labor home,” he said. “I grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and had a father within the labor movement in the ’40s. His father was a union tradesman in the ’20s and ’30s and went through the Great Depression. It was drilled in me very early on the importance of collective bargaining for decent wages, work environments and benefits.”
