Kathryn E. Sherry
As a young girl, Kathryn would help her father Allan, an attorney, prepare for trials. As she watched him argue cases and win for his clients, she dreamed of the day she, too, would argue in court and make her clients’ doubts vanish. Kathryn was mesmerized as her father conjured up hope where others could only see hopelessness. As his unofficial apprentice, she found it only right to carry the lessons learned and passion passed down to her into her future aspirations.
Kathryn’s fondness for law did not subside as she got older: it led her to pursue an education in political science. After earning her Bachelor of Arts in politics and government from Ohio Wesleyan University, Kathryn attended Ohio Northern University where she received her Juris Doctor. It was not long before she successfully passed the Ohio State Bar exam, and later the West Virginia State Bar exam. Her ambition to fight for others was unmatched. Eager to begin serving, Kathryn opened her own law firm in Ohio.
As Kathryn’s practice grew, so did her clients’ success stories. Through owning her practice, she learned about serving with a genuine spirit and empathic heart. She later moved to Georgia and became licensed to practice law in the state. As a trial attorney, Kathryn has successfully tried cases throughout Ohio, West Virginia, and Georgia and has presented oral arguments in the Court of Appeals. She has practiced for more than 15 years in the areas of personal injury and civil litigation, successfully winning six– and seven-figure settlements for her clients. Nothing brings Kathryn more joy in her work than restoring her clients’ trust.
As she earned credibility and praise from the community and her peers, Kathryn’s list of honors grew: she was elected president of her local bar association and appointed President of the Public Defender’s Commission in Monroe County, Ohio, contracted as Solicitor for the Village of Beallsville, Ohio, and named a Fellow by the Ohio Bar Foundation. Committed to educating the public on the basics of the legal world, Kathryn has also taught seminars at community colleges on a variety of legal topics. You will even find her contributions of legal advice in the book Did Not, Did Too. The book has been used in classrooms all over the nation to help children better understand the justice system.
While Kathryn enjoys living her childhood dreams, her greatest honor is being the mother of two daughters, Amelia and Abigail. When she is not strategizing for her clients at The Eichholz Law Firm or spending time with her girls, she is reading a good book or walking her fur baby, Lola.
