    I hired Attorney Patituce to assist me in a criminal case. My son was charged with several serious charges, some attorneys told me that he was in deep trouble and that the best he could hope for would be a plea. Attorney Patituce cared, listened, and my son walked out of court free.

    I wanted to write this review to let everyone out there know, that I took a chance on Chris to represent me, as he didn't have many reviews to read, and I am so glad I did. From our initial conversation, Chris was professional but personal, knowledgeable and confident. He listened to my situation, and walked me through exactly what he would do if he represented me. When I had questions and needed clarification, he kindly elaborated and helped me understand. This is what he does day in and day out. When it came to filing papers and court dates, Chris was ahead of the ball. He was always prepared. Walking into the courthouse, he put me at ease as he confidently introduced himself to the prosecutor and judge. I would recommend Chris to represent you or someone you know. This is the guy you are looking for. T.

    Mark Kremser is, bar none, the absolute best attorney I have EVER met. Mark is a one of a kind and truly cares about his clients. He has always been responsive to any of my requests or questions. I felt as though I was being taken care of like I was a member of his family. He takes on difficult issues that other attorneys might avoid and handles them like the professional that he is. It's not about just billable hours for him or having a secretary screen his calls and emails. Mark handles everything personally. I cannot say enough about this man, he is that wonderful. I only wish that he was licensed to practice in the current state where I live. No one could ask for a better attorney and advocate. After 10 years, he is still my hero.


    As an associate with McNeal Schick, my practice focuses in defense side civil litigation. At our firm we strive to achieve perfection at everything we do and pay close attention to the needs of our clients. I have over 12 years experience as a court room litigator, having served plaintiffs, the court and now defendants in civil matters. I am comfortable in the court room, whether it is a motion hearing or jury trial. I also have extensive experience in legal writing and understand the desk work that is needed to achieve the best results in litigation. I strive to take a reasoned approach to litigation, balancing available strategies, the likelihood of success and the cost of litigation. I am also very familiar with the bench in northeast Ohio and pay attention to the differences between court rooms. I enjoy serving the needs of my clients and helping them solve their particular problem. A lawsuit is a stressful experience for the parties. I try to help the client to understand the process and that there is a pathway to a favorable resolution. I try to keep my client informed as to the status of the case, the legal issues being argued and how precedent applies to the facts of his or her case. When we reach a final resolution in a lawsuit, be it the granting of a motion to dismiss ,defense verdict at the close of trial or a win on appeal, my biggest reward is receiving my client's thanks and knowing that they are satisfied with the manner in which I handled the matter.
