Loretta Marie Helfrich

About me

I graduated from University of Cincinnati, College of Law after completing undergraduate degrees at Thomas More College in Norther Kentucky, and a graduate degree in International Affairs at the American University in Washington.D.C.


When I obtained my law degree in 1989 I went to work for a small law firm.  There I put in a lot of hours and did a wide variety of civil litigation, including family law.  After ten years, getting married and having two children, I opened my own law firm. Originally I had my office in downtown Cincinnati on Court Street.   In 2008 I moved just outside of the city,  and have an office conveniently located on Columbia Parkway.
