About Carla Cannon

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.
