Aronoff, Rosen & Hunt Announces Tina M. Donnelly as New Managing Partner

Aronoff, Rosen & Hunt, LPA is proud to announce Tina M. Donnelly will serve as the firm’s next Managing Partner, starting January 1, 2022. She will advance the firm’s core areas of strength while seizing growth opportunities across practice groups and industry sectors.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Tina graduated from Walnut Hills High School (Class of 1989) and the University of Cincinnati (Class of 1993) with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. She began her career working for the Hamilton County Recorder’s Office, then as a closing agent at one of the largest title agencies before pivoting to law. She is still a licensed title agent. She earned her J.D. from Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law. She is licensed to practice in the State of Ohio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Tina’s dedication and passion were evident from the moment she joined AR&H in 2000. She’s brought expertise in real estate to the firm and regularly represents homebuilders and developers in the Greater Cincinnati area. She was designated as an Ohio Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2010, has been recognized every year since 2019 by Best Lawyers for Real Estate Law and gained additional recognition in Community Association Law for 2022.

“I am thankful for the firm-wide support and confidence my partners have given me to guide AR&H during this exciting, transitional time,” says Tina. “By leveraging our long history of offering clients skill and sound judgment in real estate development, complex estate planning, business, civil litigation and related practices, I will lead the firm’s pursuit of strategic objectives to strengthen us going forward. We will seek to continue enriching the practice with the addition of exciting new attorneys and staff.”

Richard Paolo has served as AR&H’s managing partner since 2005. Under his tenure, the firm has taken a pioneering role in the advancement of real estate law, real estate financing, administrative law including zoning and planning and estate planning.

“It’s been an honor to play an integral part in guiding this firm as managing partner,” says Rick. “I am extraordinarily pleased to have Tina as AR&H’s first female managing partner. With her unique and innovative vision, she will help us thrive for years to come.  I look forward to solely concentrating on the practice of law.”

“I am thankful to Steve (Hunt) and Rick (Paolo) for their mentorship over the last 21 years. They have made me the attorney I am today and prepared me for the journey ahead. In 2028, the firm will be 100 years old, and I look forward to starting the firm’s new century,” says Tina.
