I was injured in a fall at Woodlands Mall due to renovations but an absence of barricades. My fall caused a shoulder injury that required corrective surgery. Despite the severity of the injury, I was given the run around by the mall, the construction company and subcontractors, as each blamed each other. The first lawyer I hired told me that a lawsuit had to be filed and he recommended me to Mr. Criaco. Mr. Criaco explained to me why the companies were giving me the run around and how it is a tactic to delay. I did not like what I was hearing. Mr. Criaco warned me not to blame the messenger, as he explained to me that we will always tell me the truth about my claim whether it is good or bad. I took a deep breath, trusted him and shortly after he filed suit all the companies got together to resolve my claim. Companies and their insurance pay claims when they are afraid of the lawyer that you hire. I now see why they were afraid of Mr. Criaco, as he really does take cases to trial. I would (and I have) recommended him to friends.
Nothing happens overnight. We must understand that when we have cases it usually takes months if not years to handle. Proper reports from the proper resources, other than yourself have to be obtained. You have to have patience!!! I was so mad at Mr. Criaco myself for not giving me day by day reports(unrealistic on my part), but I am glad I backed off and did not take any of this personally , or listening to other people who didn't know any better. When we got to that settlement table this man was as gentle as a lamb with me,respected me and showed tender sympathy for me and as I watched and listened to him expertly state my position in the case against the opposing side, I saw it all pay off. Mr. C Done his thang!!!!!
My wife was involved in an auto accident involving two other vehicles that ran into her while stationary at an intersection. Neither of the insurance companies would admit guilt which lead us to hiring Adam Criaco.
Even though our case took approximately two years to settle the wife and I are very satisfied with the results Adam obtained. Adam was very professional and attentive to our needs. We both highly recommend Adam Criaco to anyone needing an attorney resulting from an accident.
I had a personal injury claim withCRIACO /ASSOCIATES . I started out with another attorney and then they gave my case to ADAM P Criaco which was a big mistakes this attorney dont have no manner at all he talk to you like you are beneath him he shows no concern about his clients at all never every retrun phone call he talks to you stuipd he very rude i would not recommend anyone at all to him i mean not one . When you see CRIACO / ASSOCIATES you better run.
I hired this person and regret I ever did. I was rear ended and suffered injuries. He did not care about anything but getting his third. I was left with outstanding bills and no money for future treatments. I also believe he dealt in an underhanded way. I would not recommend this one to anyone.
Fully applies his expertise and intelligence as well as his years of experience with local courts and judges as well as other attorneys. His reputation alone can lead to settlements where other attorneys would fail. Nobody better.
Does not return phone calls (last time i left 3 messages and after 17 days he called) Very argumental towards me shows no respect or concern about service to his customers.
