At Patituce & Associates, we believe in providing experienced criminal defense counsel for clients facing one of the most troubling, confusing times of their lives. The strength of our team is the main reason we can accomplish this task. With more than 70 years of collective legal experience, our team has been able to take 200+ cases to trial. Our team consists of former prosecutors, attorneys who are licensed to practice in four different states, and attorneys who have been regularly featured in the media. If you are looking for a team of powerhouse defense lawyers in the Toledo area, you have come to the right place.
When you work with our firm, you will quickly find that you—the client—are our main focus. Rather than treat you like just another case number, we understand each criminal case presents unique challenges and obstacles that do not fit a one-size-fits-all approach. On the contrary, we will provide you with a strong and aggressive defense strategy that addresses your needs and concerns.
Because of our extensive legal and trial experience, we are not afraid to fight for you throughout each step of the legal process. We always remind our clients that an arrest does not automatically lead to a guilty plea. There is still an opportunity to let our experienced criminal defense attorneys find any holes in the prosecution’s argument or determine if the police violated your constitutional rights to help you obtain the best possible outcome in your case.
We offer all prospective clients a free, confidential phone consultation, giving them the chance to discuss the details of their arrest and the charges they potentially face. Whether it’s the middle of the night or on the weekend, we understand that an arrest can occur at any time. That is why we can be reached 24/7. Although we will do our best to return your phone call within 12 hours of receiving your message, you can expect us to return your call within 24 hours at the latest.
When our team at Patituce & Associates, LLC takes on a case, we thoroughly investigate the matter, collect supporting evidence, assess the evidence gathered by law enforcement officials, interview potential witnesses, and develop an effective legal defense in order to either get the entire case dismissed or the charges/penalties reduced. We treat every client with the utmost respect and dignity.
One question every client has before we take their case on involves our fees. This is completely reasonable for several different reasons: cost, urgency, and lack of familiarity with the criminal justice system. We are a team of former prosecutors, and we understand the importance of being able to pick your own attorney and why you should hire the absolute best attorney that you can afford.
To meet our clients’ needs, Patituce & Associates, LLC offers several payment options. However, please understand: every case is different, and every client is different. This means we will tailor everything we do for your case, including the associated cost, to the specifics of your matter and your situation.
We offer flat fee retainers, hourly rates, and mixed rates for our services. We want to make sure the fee is fair while accounting for the professional services we offer. Most clients go with the flat fee; it is set in stone and does not change. Others need a more blended fee. We always accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, as well as cash, check, or money order. We can take and accept payment over the phone—even late at night. All our fees are put in writing and signed by both you and our managing partner, Joseph Patituce.
No matter how complex your case may be, Patituce & Associates, LLC has what it takes to protect your rights, reputation, and freedom from beginning to end. Do not hesitate to hire us for your case.
