Drive to Help Those in Need Motivates New Attorney to Focus on Social Security Disability

November 19, 2014

Nikita Desai


We are pleased to welcome Ms. Nikita K. Desai as an associate attorney in our Social Security disability department. 


Ms. Desai earned dual bachelor’s degrees in Crime, Law & Justice/Criminology, and Spanish from Pennsylvania State University. She went on to receive her J.D. from Widener University School of Law. 


Her motivation to focus her practice in Social Security disability comes from a desire to make a positive impact on those who may not be able to help themselves. 


“Joining Pond Lehocky allows me to better a situation for an individual who may be unaware of the full range of his or her rights,” Desai said. 


Ms. Desai, who is multilingual and speaks Gujarati and Spanish in addition to English, has been actively pursuing a legal career since her undergraduate studies. She gained valuable experience as a legal assistant at numerous law firms throughout the Philadelphia region and as an intern for both the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.
