Hon. Carla M. Woehrle joins ADR Services, Inc. as a neutral following her nearly twenty years of experience as a United States Magistrate Judge for the Central District of California. During that time, she presided over proceedings in cases covering the full spectrum of federal civil jurisdiction, including numerous bench and jury trials.
Judge Woehrle was especially active and highly regarded on the court as a settlement judge, conducting hundreds of mediations in diverse matters over the same broad jurisdictional range, with particular expertise in civil and constitutional rights and government policy litigation, consumer and other business class actions, employment, and intellectual property. Judge Woehrle’s reputation and success as a mediator are grounded in her ability and commitment to approach each case with informed and objective professional judgment, coupled with patience, empathy and focused personal attention to the interests and concerns of the parties before her.
“Carla Woehrle is among the top mediators whom I have ever used, and she might very well be the best. Outstanding in every way. She stayed with the case well after the mediation, even when both sides were ready to throw in the towel. Without her guidance, diligence and efforts, this case would not have settled. I would use her again and recommend her without reservation.”
“This is the second matter that I have mediated with Hon. Carla M. Woehrle (Ret.), and she does a great job of moving the parties toward consensus. I have found that we have always received great results.”
“Judge Woehrle went above and beyond, even working on the holiday weekend to get the case settled on the eve of trial. She was a large part of why the case resolved.”
