You should not be lulled into a false sense of security by any given lawyer's past results because every case is different and similar results may not be obtained in your case. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

  • Nathaniel Pitoniak convinced a jury to return a verdict of Not Guilty on a serious felony with a punishment range of 25-99 years in prison. Following closing arguments, one of the prosecutors complimented him on his performance.
  • Nathaniel Pitoniak has obtained dismissals in felony and misdemeanor cases.
  • He has received pre-trial interventions for his clients, a type of deal under which a defendant does not have to plead guilty and the case is dismissed after a long reset. Such pre-trial interventions have 1) protected his clients' immigration status, removing the possibility that they will be deported, and 2) protected his clients' parole status, keeping them out of prison.
  • He has received reductions in charges lower than the originally charged offense.
  • He has convinced judges to offer deferred adjudication in cases where the state would offer his client only prison time. Deferred adjudication is a type of probation which affords an accused the opportunity to get the case removed from their record under certain circumstances.
  • Nathaniel Pitoniak has tried over thirty misdemeanor and felony jury trials. As an Assistant District Attorney for Harris County, he received extensive training and experience on how to effectively tell a story to a jury in a persuasive manner. His clients benefit from his talent, training, and reputation for persuasive advocacy.
