Carla represents clients at district and staff hearings before the Industrial Commission of Ohio, Common Pleas Courts, and in the Tenth District Court of Appeals. She worked as an attorney for Chairman William Thompson and then as a District Hearing Officer for the Industrial Commissions of Ohio. After working as, a District Hearing Officer, she realized that she missed fighting for injured workers’ rights. Watching her business grow, the real satisfaction is knowing that she is making a difference in each and every client.


    Carla is a wife and is a mother to one son. In her spare time Carla enjoys getting involved with different charities, is a small group leader and kid’s ministry teacher at her church in Columbus, Ohio.

Very helpful
In the past my experience with lawyers has been less than helpful and just expensive. (I call it robbery) Carla has taken the time to listen to my concerns while explaining what she can do from a legal stand point. Carla has kept me informed of anything that could or will affect my case. She has also given me suggestions and options, helping me to make the decisions with her advise, not just telling me what to do. I have found working with BWC is very tedious. She has taken the things needing to be addressed, addressed them and kept me informed. In a long legal battle it is very helpful to have someone you feel does have your best interest. In my case Carla has shown that she does.

Need a WC lawyer, she's the best!
After I got injured at work, my employer was not approving anything that my doctors were requesting. I attained Carla to represent me. It was the best decision that I made. She got everything that was requested approved. She actually cares about you and works hard to get you the treatment that you need! :-)
