I Am Dedicated To Seeking Justice For My Clients

Konrad Kircher

  • Attorney



Konrad is a former Marine Corps infantry officer (1984-1989), graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy (1984), four-time marathon finisher and 20-year triathlete including one Ironman finish (Louisville 2008), who seeks to satisfy his competitiveness in the courtroom. Konrad's passion is representing the underdog against powerful institutions, and he has built a nationwide reputation as a leader in pursuing perpetrators of child sexual abuse and those organizations which enable them. Konrad has been to the Ohio Supreme Court four times since 2005 on behalf of survivors of child sexual abuse, and he handles such cases throughout Ohio. Konrad recognizes that there is much more to validation of a survivor than just receiving money, and he strives to help address all aspects of the healing process.

Konrad has also developed a niche in representing victims of police misconduct and civil rights violations. While most police officers are honorable public servants, there are others who are bad apples. Furthermore, sometimes even well-intentioned officers make tragic mistakes, resulting in death or serious injury to innocent persons. Konrad believes that these cases must be litigated to increase the quality of policing and decrease the frequency of violations of rights.

Konrad is admitted to practice in Ohio and Kentucky and in all federal courts in both of those states. He is active in the American Association of Justice and the Ohio Association of Justice. He was the 2019 recipient of the J. Thomas Henretta Distinguished Advocate Award from the Ohio Association of Justice for his advocacy on behalf of sexual assault survivors. Konrad is currently President of the National Crime Victim Bar Association, where he has co-chaired the Child Sex Abuse Section for many years.

Konrad has five daughters, of whom he is very proud and who continue to remind him through their mere presence that there is much in the world worth fighting for.
