More About Karla

Clients often need advice and counseling on a range of labor and employment issues, including employee relations, unionization, representational elections, labor practice charges, strikes and lockouts, labor negotiations, scope and composition of bargaining units and allegations of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment. Clients look to Karla because they can trust her to represent their interests and obtain great results in trials and hearings. She provides practical legal advice and strategy to assist clients facing these issues. In addition, she serves as first chair for them at the bargaining table in arbitrations—and in front of state and federal courts and administrative agencies.

To help clients approach their matters and reach successful outcomes, Karla draws upon an extensive knowledge of the NLRB's internal processes. She started her career as an attorney for the NLRB in Region 27, and a substantial part of her practice has been dedicated to traditional labor work.

Karla offers practical advice that gives her clients options rather than restrictions. She understands that a business' success requires it to be able to operate freely—without labor and employment challenges. Karla also takes the time to get to know her clients and their businesses, so she can create solutions based on their specific needs.

At Seyfarth, Karla likes working alongside attorneys who are highly skilled in all areas of labor and employment law. When faced with complex matters where various issues, laws, and jurisdictions are at play, she can always depend on her colleagues' wisdom and guidance.
