Partners Sam Pond, Jerry Lehocky and Dave Stern were selected to the 2016 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® list. For Sam and Jerry, this marks the 12th consecutive year that they have been selected to the list. Dave has been named a Super Lawyer® every year since 2012 and is a four-time Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® Rising Star.
Partner Tom Giordano, Jr., in company with Associate Attorney Michael Parker, was selected to the 2016 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® Rising Stars list. Only 2.5% of attorneys receive this accolade. Rising Stars must be 40 or younger, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
2016 marks the 10th time that Tom was selected to this list. Associate Attorneys Elisa and Michael have been named Rising Stars for the first and sixth time, respectively.
“All of the attorneys at Disability Justice strive to be the best in their practice every day, “ Tom said. “It’s the diligent preparation, knowledge of the law and empathy that sets us apart and makes all of our disability attorneys truly super. Both Elisa and Mike joined us in 2015 and have received recognition for their achievements as attorneys. It’s a true testament to the quality of the lawyers we seek to join us at Disability Justice.”
Being selected to the Super Lawyers® list is an elite achievement for an attorney. Candidates must be nominated by their peers and evaluated on 12 indicators of professional achievement such as major settlements, involvement in the legal community, published writings and special certifications.
“It is an honor to have so many talented and dedicated Disability Justice lawyers recognized for their unparalleled expertise in advocating for the disabled,” Tom said.
