Sam Pond named to Temple Law School Board of Visitors

Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano Managing Partner Samuel H. Pond has been named to the Temple University Beasley School of Law Board of Visitors. Composed of Temple Law alumni and other luminaries from the local legal community, the board serves in an advisory capacity to the Dean of the Law School.

Pond will be officially appointed to the board by Temple University President Richard M. Englert and introduced at a Dec. 6 meeting by Board of Visitors Chair Leonard Barrack.

The honor is particularly meaningful to Pond, a 1984 graduate of the law school who recently returned as adjunct faculty. He currently teaches a course titled “Workers Compensation & the Profession of Law.”  That course addresses both the substantive and procedural aspects of workers’ compensation law, as well as all practical facets of the legal profession.

Pond has stressed legal education as a chief component of Pond Lehocky’s culture. Both he and fellow founding partner Jerry Lehocky are proud alums of Temple University Law School and they give back to law students each year with the firm’s Law School Scholarship Fund in Trial Advocacy.

Since 2013, Pond Lehocky has awarded a scholarship to a student at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. The Beasley Law endowed scholarship is awarded during the Fall Semester and students are nominated by the faculty who oversee the trial advocacy programs. The firm has also funded a Trial Advocacy Courtroom/Classroom renovation project at the law school.

In addition, the firm has a thriving internship program offering students hands-on experience in a professional legal environment and with a culture centered on client service.

Pond is a founding and managing partner of Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, the largest workers’ compensation and disability law firm in Pennsylvania. A former President of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, he served for six years as treasurer of that organization’s Committee for a Better Tomorrow. He also is president of Union Services Access, a legal consulting services network for unions and their members, and the chairman of the Pennsylvania Alliance.

He has previously served in leadership roles for numerous organizations, including chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Workers’ Compensation Section and member of the Pennsylvania Board of Law Examiners.
