Sylvania Municipal Court

When you work with Patituce & Associates, you will quickly find that you—the client—are our main focus. Rather than treat you like just another case number, our Sylvania criminal defense attorneys understand each 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.
