I retained the services of Patituce & Associates to defend me on a DUI charge in Medina, Ohio. At first I consulted with two other attorneys who both had offices in the city of Medina. I was told that I was more, or less, screwed. (Please excuse my language) I did some more research on who was considered the better, or best, attorneys that handle DUI cases in the Akron/Cleveland area. I spoke with Joe on a Sunday before my Tuesday court date. He did in fact say that the Judge typically has a policy of no reductions on DUI offenses but he did point out other cases where the DUI charge had been dismissed or suppressed based on the evidence. He did not speak negatively about other attorneys, but he did stress how complicated these cases can be – and fully litigating the matter takes considerable time and effort. I am thankful that he personally put the time and effort into my case. He was present at all of the important parts of my case – and personally handled the evidentiary hearing for me. He cross examined the police officer who arrested me so effectively that at the end of my case the prosecutor (not the judge) agreed to throw the DUI charge out if I agreed to pay a “no right turn” ticket. This was after Joe convinced the judge, earlier, to throw out the breath test. If I did not take the time to talk to Joe I would have been convicted of a DUI. I work in the area of pharmaceutical sales – I travel all across the country – with a DUI conviction on my record I would have been unemployable. Joe understood this, took my case seriously, and the case was dismissed in a court where they supposedly are not dismissed.
