Review Carol Herdman

About Me

I was born in Denver, Colorado but have spent most of my life in Central Ohio. I graduated from Dublin Scioto High School and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from The Ohio State University, majoring in International Studies with a specialization in Security and Intelligence. I received a Juris Doctor degree from Capital University Law School. During law school I was a staff member of the Capital University Law Review and participated in numerous externships, including a clerkship with the Federal District Court in the Southern District of Ohio. I was admitted to the Ohio Bar in November 2011.


Prior to attending law school, I worked in a small litigation practice that focused on workers' compensation and personal injury cases. Now, as an associate in The Bainbridge Firm, I represent injured workers in hearings before the Industrial Commission and assist with appeals in both the Ohio Courts of Common Pleas and the Tenth District Court of Appeals. I also represent claimants seeking Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits at all levels - from initial applications for benefits to appeals before the Social Security Administration and the United States District Court.
