Choosing Experienced Counsel

Not every law firm is equipped to handle federal cases and assuming that federal cases are "basically the same" as state cases is the fastest route to an unfavorable outcome. Federal prosecution and sentencing works differently than Ohio's system and making sure your attorney is well-versed in this process is key to ensuring that you stand every chance of a dismissal or a reduction of your charges.

At Patituce & Associates, our Ohio federal criminal defense lawyers bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to every case we handle. Our founder Attorney Joseph Patituce is a former state prosecutor who has more than 90% success rate in trials he handles and has fostered a diligent and tenacious approach to criminal defense at our firm. We're not looking for the easiest plea deal to resolve our clients' cases—we're seeking for the outcome that produces as little impact on their lives as possible.
