Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano congratulates the Philadelphia Eagles as the team again defied all predictions and defeated the favored Chicago Bears in a heart-stopping 16-15 Wild Card playoff battle.
As an Official Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles, the Firm also reaffirmed its full-throated support as the team travels to New Orleans to take on the top-seeded Saints in next week’s divisional round. The Eagles will again be facing long odds, but that has yet to stop them.
Persistence and Excellence
To Managing Partner Sam Pond, the astounding victory offers a lesson on perseverance in the face of adversity.
“You can hear me TALK about believing and about how nothing is impossible,” Pond said. “OR you can watch the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES DO IT!”
Pond Lehocky could not be prouder of its Official Partner. The Firm stresses its commitment to strive continually for excellence and never back down from a fight, no matter the odds. The Eagles embody those principles.
The team were underdogs throughout their run to last year’s championship. This year, they bounced back from a rough start to win 5 of their last 6 games, get into the playoffs and defeat the heavily favored Bears on the road.
An Obvious Match
The turn of events highlights why Pond Lehocky’s partnership with the team is a perfect fit.
Pond Lehocky became an Official Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles in early 2018—bringing the reigning World Champs together with the Team Behind You.

At the time the Official Partnership was announced, Pond Lehocky’s Attorney Partners stressed how running an outstanding law firm is like coaching a winning team. The players need to work together with guidance and encouragement from the coach to win the game.
“The coach must be straightforward and effective. Like our Official Partners the Philadelphia Eagles’ coach Doug Pederson, we believe that prioritizing relationships requires leadership. We strive for excellence,” Managing Partner Sam Pond said at the time.
