Today we’d like to introduce you to Carla Barboza.
Carla, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I created Barboza & Associates in June 1994 under the most dire of circumstances. My life was a disaster on many levels and I decided to stop working for others so I could reap the benefit of my abilities. I started out as a plaintiff’s employment lawyer, representing employees in harassment and discrimination cases and then I reinvented myself about 20 years ago and became a full-time neutral who handles mediations, workplace investigations and arbitrations.

I am a first generation Chicana (Mexican-American born here) who had few resources and decided to go to law school in 1979.
