Currently, she practices law at Treleven and Klingensmith Law LLC., a small firm that allows her to be involved in different types of legal work and maintain a client-centered practice; she is most excited to continue growing in the job and exploring additional types of legal work.
“I love working with my clients and it’s always exciting to continue to work with people,” she says.
When reflecting back on her time at UC Law, Weingartner says “my Cincinnati Law experience gave me a lot of hands-on learning. I took a lot of classes that allowed me to learn about the practice of law as opposed to just academia.” The extensive opportunities for fellowships, internships, and externships all enhanced her UC experience and prepared her to enter the workforce. Most notably, she was a fellow for the Ohio Innocence Project.
She calls it her favorite UC Law experience, one that was like no other. While she learned client-management, investigative and legal argument skills, it was the work beyond the legal practice aspect that stuck with her. “I learned a lot about broken systems, how to fix them, and how to work on a team. I love the Ohio Innocence Project and the work will always remain dear to my heart.”
