Bio

Attorney Catherine R. Meehan is a partner at Patituce & Associates after joining the firm in August 2012. Not only does she handle many pretrial proceedings on behalf of our clients, but she also has experience taking cases to trial.

When she isn’t in the courtroom, Catherine is tirelessly working behind the scenes to gather and analyze the evidence against our clients in order to build an effective and tailored legal defense to properly challenge such evidence. Since we are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week for our clients, she is quick to respond to any calls and listen to their needs and concerns about their case.

After graduating from Notre Dame College, Catherine earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2011. She is a member of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
