    On 18 November 2003, the late Helen Zelkowitz was interviewed by Naomi Schottenstein for Columbus Jewish Historical Society. Mrs. Zelkowitz recalled that her spouse Charles (registered in Ohio 1930-09-10) opened a law office in Knox County in the early 1930’snnHis solo practice, over time, evolved to the present Zelkowitz, Barry & Cullers law firm, currently with six attorneys.nnThe office of Attorney Services at The Supreme Court of Ohio [ASSCO], as of 22 April 2011, CONTINUES to incorrectly list Mr. Zelkowitz’s law school as Cornell.nnT’aint so. He ATTENDED Cornell in L1 and won a moot court award. nnHe transferred to Oho State University’s law school, now The Ohio State University Michael E.
