Paula was a successful workers’ compensation defense attorney for ten years practicing for several law firms, establishing herself in her field as a tough litigator.

Paula is also an avid runner having four marathons under her belt, and a sailing, boating and fishing enthusiast. And she makes an excellent Manhattan.
