Staunch Advocacy in Your Corner

While other states make critical distinctions between assault and battery, in Ohio, assault is an umbrella term that encompasses all unwanted physical contact and threatening conduct between parties. Any violent crime is considered seriously by the court and our state statutes provide significant penalties for those who are convicted of these charges.

At Patituce & Associates, our dedicated team of legal advocates has been practicing criminal defense for more than three decades. We know how detrimental a criminal conviction can be for our clients and what critical distinctions need to be made before the court to ensure that they receive the consideration they deserve.
