Ms. Rella was admitted to practice in New York in 1987 and began her career in Workers’ Compensation as an Assistant Corp. Counsel with the NYC Law Department. After honing her skills with Law Dept.; Ms. Rella was recruited by a private defense firm where she remained until 1992. On April 9.1992, she started Rella & Associates, P.C. as a solo Practitioner. Ms. Rella decided early on that assisting injured workers secure benefits that they are entitled to under the NYS Workers’ Compensation Law was a more desirable pursuit than assisting insurance companies deny the claimant’s benefits. The Firm has grown significantly since it’s humble beginnings. There are currently 8 attorneys and a support staff of 12. The practice has expanded to include Social Security Disability, New York City and State Disability Retirement benefits.

Ms. Rella has lectured extensively on the topic of Workers' Compensation. Ms. Rella has 3 children.
