On average, we refer out 20,000 cases a year. How many of those cases can your firm handle?
Referral partnerships are crucial to the success of our law firm. Since opening our doors in 2010, we have referred more than 160,000 cases to attorneys in our referral network. That network spans all 50 states and has recently expanded into a handful of other countries.
There are more than 2,000 law firms in our referral network, whose practices cover the legal spectrum. There’s a good chance we’ve referred out the kinds of clients and cases your law firm is looking to bring in more of.
The benefits to joining our referral network go beyond just receiving referrals
At Pond Lehocky Giordano, we primarily handle workers’ compensation cases in Pennsylvania, and Social Security Disability and long- and short-term disability cases across the United States.
We warmly welcome referrals of clients with cases in those areas.
But we believe in offering holistic legal service to our clients, and strive to meet all of their legal needs. That’s why we refer out a broader mix of cases than we handle ourselves—to the tune of 20,000 a year on average.

We also welcome incoming referrals of these types of cases, even when you or your colleagues have determined that a prospective client does not have a viable legal claim. Time and again, members of our referral network have taken a second look—or even a third— at cases and found viable claims that led to recoveries for those clients.
The benefits to joining our referral network go beyond just receiving referrals.
We refer out thousands of cases each month to our referral partners. But those referral partners enjoy additional benefits beyond incoming referrals.
They enjoy piece of mind when it comes to outbound referrals
When lawyers join our referral network, their days of hunting for a referral attorney in the hopes of finding one who is qualified and client-focused come to an end.
That’s because we carefully vet each of the law firms to whom we send referrals. The attorneys who refer cases to our network no longer have to cross their fingers and hope the client they just referred out will receive the competent counsel they deserve while also having a pleasant client experience.
And when our referral partners send us workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability, and long- and short-term disability cases, they can rest assured their clients will receive top-notch legal counsel AND client service from us. From a full-time client concierge, to an in-house medical team, to transportation assistance, to offering clients gently-used professional clothing so they can look their best for court appearances, Pond Lehocky Giordano puts its clients first, always.
They receive a technological boost to their law firm’s operations
We offer all of our referral partners a free account on the Litify Referral Network, a component of Litify, the best-in-class CRM (client relationship management) program for law firms.
Litify transforms law firms by automating referrals, intake, client management, marketing, documents, reporting, and finance within a single, easy-to-use application. Our team trains our referral partners on how to use the Litify Referral Network.
Once a law firm purchases the full version of Litify and begins using it, the firm’s lawyers and staff will see how much information is available to their team at the push of a button—and how the sky’s the limit for the ways they can use the program to build their firm and make its operations as efficient as possible.
They can build their own referral network through ours
With more than 2000 law firms in our referral network, members of our network often find lawyers and firms with complementary legal practices with whom a referral relationship would be beneficial for both sides. We often, and are happy to, introduce members of our referral network to each other in the hopes that those relationships, in addition to their relationships with Pond Lehocky Giordano, will help them grow their firms.
They are welcome to learn how we’ve grown so that they can do the same
At Pond Lehocky Giordano, we know something about growing a law firm. We started in 2010 as a firm with six attorneys and 22 staff members and have grown to more than 20 attorneys and 120 staff members.
We’ve learned many lessons along the way, and made our share of mistakes. We’re happy to share these lessons and mistakes with our referral network. In fact, we often do.
It’s not unusual for members of our referral network—from across the U.S—to visit our offices to see how we run our law firm. From learning how we set up our case management system, to seeing how we optimize intake, to understanding how we track the firm’s key performance indicators, members of our referral network can get a behind-the-scenes look at what we’re doing to grow our firm so that they can employ the same systems and processes to grow theirs.
