Charles W. Kranstuber has advocated for injured workers in Ohio since 1982. He brings a personal approach to working with clients that is especially important for individuals who are hurting and unable to collect a paycheck.
Charles works directly with his clients from the initial consultation through the resolution of the case. He emphasizes clear communication, is accessible and highly responsive to clients. Given the complexities of Ohio’s workers’ compensation benefits process, it is comforting to work with a lawyer who can explain things clearly and who ensures that every client understands his or her options fully.
He is a graduate of the Ohio State University, where he received a bachelor of arts in political science. He received his law degree from the University of San Diego in 1979. Charles is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association, the Columbus Bar Association and the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers.
Charles has experience with workers’ compensation cases from both sides. Upon graduation from the University of San Diego, he was employed by the Ohio Industrial Commission as a district hearing officer. The Industrial Commission is the state agency that handles the adjudication of contested matters in the workers’ compensation system.
After several years with the Ohio Industrial Commission, he worked for two law firms until founding his own firm, the Law Offices of Charles W. Kranstuber, LPA, in 2006. His practice focuses on representing injured workers before the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) and the Industrial Commission of Ohio.
In 2006, he was appointed by the governor as the injured workers’ representative to the Workers’ Compensation Oversight Commission, which is responsible for the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. The Oversight Commission’s duties include making recommendations regarding premium rates, investments, and setting the rules and policies of the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
Charles has also been active in politics and local government. He served for 12 years as a Dublin City Councilman and also served for six years as the mayor of Dublin. For full details on Charles’ work experience and education, click on the link below.
