Experienced trial and appellate lawyers serving clients in Akron, Cleveland, and throughout Ohio

The Pattakos Law Firm LLC is a litigation firm based in Northeast Ohio serving clients statewide. Our founding attorney Peter Pattakos began his career at the international law firm Jones Day and has since established a track record of extraordinary success in obtaining justice for people whose rights have been violated by powerful corporate and governmental interests, including in highly complex, contentious, and publicized matters. Peter is one of the very few attorneys in Ohio or anywhere in the U.S. who has delivered winning closing arguments to juries both in multiple civil cases where more than $250,000.00 in damages were awarded, and in multiple felony prosecutions resulting in complete acquittals. Peter has also successfully briefed and argued landmark appeals in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, the Supreme Court of Ohio, and in Ohio’s district courts of appeals.

Protecting your rights and reputation

Our firm handles all types of litigation at the trial and appellate levels, with a focus on civil rights and remedying abuses of governmental and corporate power. We have obtained substantial judgments and settlements for our clients in a variety of matters, including those involving wrongful death, civil-rights violations, medical malpractice and legal malpractice claims, other personal injury claims, whistleblower retaliation, other employment discrimination claims, and business and contract disputes. Our attorneys are also experienced in criminal defense, school disciplinary proceedings (for students, teachers, and administrators), family law (including divorces and custody disputes), bankruptcy, and probate disputes, and have prevailed for our clients in felony prosecutions and high profile cases where abuses of police and prosecutorial power are at issue. We have also achieved excellent results for our clients in federal and state courts of appeals, and we are skilled in engaging with the media when necessary to expose matters of public interest to light and protect our clients’ reputations.
