I live my life with the philosophy that nothing beats hard work.  This is the same philosophy I employ for my clients.  My goal is to work hard to provide the best service and counsel in order to effectively and efficiently solve my clients’ problems.

Paulette practices in the Columbus office of Reminger Co., L.P.A., where she is a leader in the Workers' Compensation practice group.  She represents and advises employers in all aspects of their workers’ compensation and risk management programs, including individual claim processing, policy coverage issues and violations of specific safety requirements.  Paulette provides representation and counsel on employment related matters involving intentional torts, retaliatory claims and Family Medical Leave Act.  Her practice includes representing employers in administrative hearings before the Industrial Commission of Ohio and the adjudicating bodies of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, as well as extensive trial and appellate experience, representing employers at all levels of the Ohio court system.

Paulette is a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation by the Ohio State Bar Association, under the approval of the Supreme Court of Ohio.  She frequently lectures on the topic of workers' compensation and employment related matters for various groups, including the Ohio State Bar Association.  She was an invited speaker at the Industrial Commission Statewide Hearing Officer’s Training Meeting in Maumee Bay, Ohio in October, 2011.  Paulette has been voted by her peers as one of Cincinnati Magazine's Ohio Super Lawyers every year since 2004.
