I was taught at a young age to choose one thing, work hard, and be good at it.  I chose to focus my legal practice on Workers’ Compensation. As your Attorney, I bring more than 15 years of experience to the table. I also pledge to my clients that I will work as hard for them as I would work for a family member.  Above all else, I will strive to bring my clients the best result possible.

Since joining Reminger Co., L.P.A. in 2003, Shelby's practice has concentrated on the representation of self insured and state funded employers in the defense of workers' compensation claims.  Shelby has successfully defended employers in thousands of Administrative Hearings before the Industrial Commission of Ohio. 

Some of the issues that Shelby has successfully defended include: defending Employers in obtaining favorable outcomes in Permanent Total Disability Applications ("PTD"), Violations of Specific Safety Requirements ("VSSRs") and Mandamus Actions in the Tenth District Court of Appeals.  Shelby has also successfully defended employers, and won before The Supreme Court of OhioShelby has also successfully mediated cases in lieu of trial and she has also participated in bench and jury trials.

Shelby is a member of numerous professional bar associations. She has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Dayton School of Law, and has presented numerous educational seminars to employers and third party administrators on a variety of workers' compensation issues.

Representative Matters

In the case of State ex rel. Lapp Roofing & Sheet Metal Co., Inc. v. Indus. Comm. The Supreme Court of Ohio reaffirmed their prior holding that in order to perfect an appeal under 4123.511 a party must substantially comply with the following four requirements: (1)the claimant and employer names, (2) the claim number, (3)the date of the decision appealed from, and (4)the fact that the appellant appeals therefrom. The Supreme Court of Ohio held that absolute compliance is not necessary, rather, if a party substantially complies with the provisions of 4123.511, that will be sufficient to perfect the appeal.  State ex rel. Lapp Roofing & Sheet Metal Co., Inc. v. Indus. Comm.,117 Ohio St.3d 179, 2008-Ohio-850
