Work with a Team of Former Prosecutors & Skilled Defense Attorneys
The Berea criminal defense attorneys at Patituce & Associates, LLC have extensive experience handling cases in Berea Municipal Court and in Cuyahoga County Court. Our law firm has a reputation for aggressively defending our clients and, when necessary, taking criminal cases of all kinds to trial. Most firms resolve cases largely through plea deals; 95–98% of cases never get put before a jury. By contrast, our firm has triedmore than 200 criminal cases.
We prepare every case for trial, putting the pressure on the prosecutor and police officers to drop the case or reduce your charges. As Berea criminal lawyers, we fight hard for our clients, defending them the way we would want to be defended ourselves. The mere allegation of a criminal offense can result in ruinous consequences, from jail to losing your job. We also know that if you lose your job, you could lose your home, your freedom, and even your family.
We are not willing to sit by and let that happen without a fight.
Examples of cases that our Berea criminal defense lawyers can handle include:
- Assault & Battery
- DUI / OVI
- Sex Crimes
- Homicide, Murder & Manslaughter
- Drug Charges
- Domestic Violence
- Robbery & Theft
- Crimes Against Family Members
Police and prosecutors are required, by law, to turn over all evidence they have to defense attorneys upon request. This evidence includes statements, videos, photographs, police reports, medical records, and anything else that the police might have collected in their investigation of you. Our Berea defense lawyers then examine all of the evidence, including evidence in your favor, to determine the strength and weakness of the prosecutor’s case.
As former prosecutors ourselves, our Berea criminal defense lawyers know where prosecutors typically hide weaknesses in their cases. By finding and leveraging these weaknesses, we can strengthen your case and prevent the state from unfairly punishing you.
