Toledo Criminal Defense Attorneys

More than Three Decades of Experience in Your Corner

At Patituce & Associates, we believe that any individual accused of a crime deserves to have their side of the story compellingly put forth before the law. Our team consists of three former Cuyahoga County prosecutors who are now dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of the accused. Collectively, our team has won thousands of cases and successfully navigated more than 200 criminal trials. We know the challenges our clients face as they confront the charges against them and aggressively explore every conceivable legal avenue toward a reduction or dismissal on their behalf.
