ABOUT THOMAS SCHULMAN

Experience:  In 2011 I began practicing law as an intern for the Kenton County Public Defender's Office in Northern Kentucky while at the same time still working towards graduating from law school. My initial experience as an intern was handling minor criminal law matters, including some misdemeanors and juvenile adjudications.  Following the internship, I moved on to an opportunity with a law clinic that worked with a non-profit, the Ohio Justice & Policy Center. Through the Ohio Justice & Policy Center I had the chance to participate in important civil rights cases arguing in federal district court as well as the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. I went on to gain full time employment with the Louisville Public Defender's Office. After handling a large case load of clients facing charges ranging from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies, I chose to open my own solo practice. I opened my office in downtown Cincinnati, moving away from the area of civil rights/criminal law to focus primarily in the area of family law.

Education:  I graduated cum laude from Ohio University receiving a Bachelor of Science degree and an Outstanding Graduating Senior Award. After undergraduate, I received a full tuition scholarship to Salmon P. Chase College of Law where in 2012 I obtained my juris doctorate and again graduated cum laude.

Organizations:  I am a member of the Ohio Bar Association, the Kentucky Bar Association, the Cincinnati Bar Association, as well as several committees/groups related to the area of family law.
