Louis Edward Valencia II



Earned his B.A. in Economics from the Ohio State University in 1992, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toledo, College of Law in 1996, where he was a member of the Moot Court Board.

Founding partner of the firm in 2004; he is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, The Cincinnati Bar Association and the Ohio State Bar Association. He is a licensed real property title underwriter. He concentrates his practice in the areas of criminal defense, family law, immigration, personal injury and real property.

Louis has Hispanic ethnicity; his parents and four siblings were all born in Colombia, South America and immigrated here to Cincinnati in 1963. Louis was born here in Cincinnati, Ohio. He grew up between the Colombian culture and the American culture giving him an understanding of the importance to respect all cultures.

From his first days as a child, Louis’ family always thought he should be an attorney based on how he loved to argue every point. However, Louis did not agree with them since his appeal was to help others which led to his pursuit of psychology. In 1982, Louis started his college career in pre-med and interned in the psychology departments of several hospitals in the Youngstown area. He also worked with MR/DD adults in the group home setting and with MR/DD children and teens in Camp settings. Louis witnessed several unfair and unjust events during his time in the psychology field which gave him the desire and passion to change the laws and red tape he had come to dislike so much. This desire led to law school in 1992.

Louis is not just a man of law, he is a family man. Louis and his wife, Gloria, met in Colombia and soon after married in Ohio in 1995. They have two wonderful children, Alejandra and Luis. Alejandra, who has a passion for music, is a member of the only Colombian Folk dance team in Cincinnati, Colombia Viva. Luis is a soccer player who loves math. Louis is an active member, supporter and fan of his kids’ activities. For Colombia Viva he is the groups’ Master of Ceremony, providing culture information about Colombia before and during performances. He is the coach of his son’s soccer team. Louis also loves cooking especially traditional Colombian, but healthy meals with lot of vegetables and his kids love his meals.

Louis is a strong believer that the community should be well informed of the law and rules to avoid problems. He does meetings in the community were he gives general information about current legal issues and provides free advice. Even more, Louis and La Mega 97.7 united to create a radio show called “Conozca sus Derechos,” (“Know your Rights”). This show gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions and educate themselves about a legal system that for most is foreign.

Moreover, motivated by a family member’s struggle in buying a house, Louis began a Real Estate company, Aleja Properties to help provide affordable housing to those with limited means.
