Karla Mathews earned her Bachelor of Music from Meredith College in 1974.  She graduated from the National Center for Paralegal Training in Atlanta in 1976.  In January, 1977, she joined Christian, Barton in Richmond as a general litigation paralegal.  While with Christian, Barton, Karla worked with the litigation team in both state and federal courts.  Her case load included such diverse litigation and administrative proceedings, such as construction, utility rate regulation and products liability.

Karla moved to McGuireWoods in 1979 where she worked with the regional counsel team for Firestone in the SBR 500 litigation.  She assisted the team in discovery, trial preparation and trials.  In addition, she participated in various factual research for Firestone, including extensive research on rubber-to-brass adhesion.  Also during her tenure with McGuireWoods, Karla helped the product liability team develop a national representation of various food processing machine manufacturers and amusement ride manufacturers.  This involved the coordination of all cases, including discovery issues and the trial of these matters.

Karla left McGuireWoods with founding partner Ken Moran and has continued working in product liability litigation.  She brings to the firm over 30 years of experience.

Karla is interested in Richmond’s art and music scene and has served on the board of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League.  She grew up sailing, water skiing and swimming in the York River and continues to enjoy water sports.  Her limited spare time is occupied by reading, occasional fly fishing for trout in mountain streams, photography, needle point, beach vacations, travel and wandering back roads and out-of the way places.
