Barry is a Cincinnati native.  He graduated from Finneytown High School in 1983.  Barry then went on to college at The Ohio State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, majoring in Business Marketing and graduating in 1987.

Upon completion of his business studies at Ohio State, Barry was admitted to The Ohio State University College of Law which is a top rated national law school. The Ohio State College of Law has recently been ranked as a top 30 US Law School among peer institutions by US News & World Reports (  While attending law school at Ohio State, Barry helped support his wife and young son by working full time as a law clerk for a personal injury law practice in downtown Columbus, Ohio.  It was in these early years of law school education that Barry learned the field of personal injury law and developed a passion for helping others.

In 1990, Barry graduated from The Ohio State University College of Law on his 25th birthday and passed the Ohio Bar Exam in the summer of 1990. Barry was sworn in to practice law before the Supreme Court of Ohio on November 5, 1990.  Initially, Barry began his professional career as a tax lawyer with the Columbus, Ohio office of Coopers & Lybrand.  As such, Barry has experience in the field of tax law which has served him throughout his years of personal injury practice.

Soon after starting his professional career Barry realized tax law was not where he wanted to devote his life and career.  Barry wanted to help others recover for the wrongs.  As such, in September, 1991 he established his own personal injury practice in Columbus, Ohio.  Rothchild Law Office was opened on South High Street in German Village, Columbus, Ohio.

Barry practiced personal injury law in Columbus, Ohio through the summer of 1993 when he returned to his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio to manage the original Rothchild Law Office which has existed in Cincinnati for decades.  At this time, the Cincinnati office was being managed by Barry’s father, Eugene Rothchild. Currently, the Rothchild Law Office is located at the corner of Central Parkway and Race Street on the edge of Over-the-Rhine and is a continuation of the law practice which has been in existence for over 40 years.  Of note, Barry has been managing the law firm for 26 years and has been practicing law for 29 years.

In 2002, the law office moved to its current home at 101 West Central Parkway.  Shortly thereafter, a non-profit arts organization known in Cincinnati as MuralWorks approached Barry about using a wall of the West Central Parkway office building for a community beautification project. Excited about the project, Barry offered Mural Works more than, “a wall”.  Barry provided the entire building as a unique canvas for the student based beautification project. As such, over a decade ago, during the summer of 2007, high school students under the supervision of MuralWorks covered every paintable inch of the Rothchild Law Office’s building exterior. The mural was dedicated in August of 2007 and sits directly across from the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts. With the addition of this Mural to the exterior of the building, Rothchild Law Office is easily identifiable in the community and can easily be found in downtown Cincinnati.  Further, Rothchild Law Office is now on the Cincinnati Street Car line with 2 convenient streetcar stops nearby.

Barry lives in Blue Ash, Ohio with his wife, Dawn.  Barry has three sons. Barry, his wife and their boys are all dedicated Ohio State Buckeye fans. Barry and his family routinely travel around the county to watch the Buckeyes on the gridiron. The fondness of Barry’s family for OSU has passed from generation to generation as Barry’s oldest son has joined his wife and Barry as an alumni of The Ohio State University having graduated Ohio State in the Class of 2012.

When not working on client cases, Barry likes to workout and ride his bicycle.  Barry enjoys physical activity including organized road races and modified triathlons and has participated in half marathons. Barry enjoys reading and spending time with his dogs. His family calls homeless dog’s family members and Barry routinely brings his dog Millie with him to work. When winter arrives, Barry can be found taking trips to the Rocky Mountains to find deep powder and a nice downhill.  Barry also enjoys wine.  He loves to experience new grapes, blends, labels and taste.  Barry can easily be engaged in a conversation concerning this passion.
