Following his defeat in that election, he worked as a solo practitioner before becoming, in 1983, a partner in the law firm of Bricker and Eckler.
In 1982, Pfeiffer was elected to the Ohio Senate where he served for nine years until he was elected in 1991 as the first judge of the Environmental Division of the Franklin County Municipal Court, a position he held for eleven years before becoming Columbus City Attorney.
