Excellent Outcome
I was represented by this firm, specifically Attorney Ryan Reynolds, throughout my Workmen’s Compensation case. At all times, I gained comfort knowing that everything was in very capable hands and did not have to worry. I received immediate answers and reassurance when needed. I was guided through the entire process flawlessly. The outcome was optimal. Thank you for your professionalism and expertise!

By far the best attorneys office to have on your side !
Everyone at this office is extremely helpful, professional, knowledgeable and caring ! The whole staff was excellent and very helpful through my whole ordeal. I may have been doing quite a bit of suffering from my injury, but they helped me get through it all by taking a lot of the additional worry and extra pain from stress away. They pushed and followed up consistently with my carrier and the WCB to make certain that I had everything that was needed and right for ME and my case. THANK YOU to Vincent, Ryan, Josh, Maggie, Jake, Zeb, Lizzie and everyone there ! I couldn't have chosen a better attorneys office.

Ryan is the best!!!
After having been injured on the job, I had no idea what worker's compensation entailed, so I went online and chose Vincent Criscuolo's firm after reading several positive reviews. I am so glad I did! Better yet, having Ryan assigned to my case has been a godsend! Not only is he a great, friendly guy, he answers all of my billions of annoying questions--and usually within an hour!!! Plus, he's a mathematical genius. Thanks to the entire team at this firm! You have all been so helpful to me during this trying time!

I feel that Vince and his staff are by far one of the best workmen"s comp teams in Rochester,New York .Since being on workmen"comp I have faced many many situation that were quite unbearable such as being denied pain medicines that I need; but after placing a call to his office I was assured by his staff that they would look into the matter and give a call back which was always done.Having Vince for a attorney has been a asset for me.Thank-You Vince and keep up the good work.

Problem Solved!
I felt like a dog chasing it's tail while dealing with the workers' compensation system and out of complete frustration, I decided to get a lawyer. While searching for the right person, all recommendations were the same- Vincent Criscuolo. Well, I wasn't steered wrong, Mr. Criscuolo in an exemplary attorney! He and his staff showed me tremendous compassion. They made themselves available to answer all of my questions and always responded to my emails in a timely fashion. They were extremely professional, knowledgeable and aggressive in their representation of me. I have a renewed faith in the system and I wish I had contacted him sooner! I highly recommend anyone having a problem with workers' comp to contact Vincent Criscuolo immediately! Thank you Mr. C!

A few years ago my mother was hurt on the job working for a large shipping company. As she does not have much money and is older, she asked me to help her find an attorney. After contacting several different law firms, we were advised by all except for one, that she did not have a case against this company for any kind of restitution. I believe the advise we received was based money and money only. The Criscuolo Law Firm took her case and after a long and time consuming battle with the insurance company, my mother received a settlement. I would like to thank Vince Criscuolo and his staff for the hard work and dedication. This has to be a firm with HEART as Mr. Criscuolo did not get RICH by any means from this case, but definitely ENRICHED my mothers life. Thank's again Vince

There is not enough words or space to cover all the good things I can say about Criscuolo Law Firm. Every person in the firm is caring and knowledgeable about each client. If it weren't for their caring and hard work, I'd be immobile and penniless. They do their work from their heart. They explain everything to you and never leave you with unanswered questions about your case, the law, etc. They all go the extra mile. They really care that you have a better quality of life rather than just a money settlement. They came highly recommended to me by a Judge friend, and I will be eternally grateful to all of them.

best worker compensation Attorney in Rochester NY
I meet Vicent in 2012 after a terrible my accident .I was surprised by how much emphaty he had for me and my family . Another impacting thing about him was how much he encouraged me to keep going I almost felt like family rather than business.He objected to accept anything unfare to my persona he faught until he was able to get the compensation that was decent and honest according to my loss never settled for less or first offers.He also kept me on the loop and was clear and honest, never made empty promises he is a man of his word and he has passion and love not only for what he does but for his clients.Vincent spoke the law to me in a way I could understand which proved to be that I liked clarity and honesty, sometimes attorney use words that only they could understand. Vincent broke everything down and made sure you knew everything that was going on, he asked for my opinion and was straight forward no matter the circumstances he was my attorney and I trust him and recommend him to anyone that has been injured at work just like I . Vincent is an attorney that can be trusted he is knowledgeable and knows so much, not only does he know but when you work with him you are sure to learn from him as well. I am thankful for Vince and his staff for there hard work and dedication.

Worker's compensation and social security disability.
I received exceptional legal representation. My original claim for worker's compensation was stopped while I was receiving benefits, and this firm was able to appeal the decision and get it overturned so that I was able to continue receiving benefits. Furthermore, this firm also handled my claim for social security disability benefits. I would recommend this firm to anyone needing legal representation.

The day Vince Crisculo accepted my case for the rotator cuff injury he also got things started for my back injury that had now put me out of work. He told me I had to start a job search with 2 injuries I thought I should get disability.But Vince convinced me otherwise He said Margaret your not disabled You can do this.He was so encouraging so meaningful,He gave me a ray of Hope.That Hope gave me the strength to forge a new path.each and every time I called someone on his team gave me those same encouraging words Keep going Margaret you can do it.And I did, now employed I received a lump sum and can happily say Justice was served!

The Best There Is!
Injured bills piling up confused, At the end of my rope. That's where I was until I changed Law Firms. The day I walked into Vince Crisculos Law Firm, he and his dedicated team changed my life. For the better. I was no longer a number, I was a real person, my confusion now gone, my bills were now getting paid, because he got my money to me. Whenever I have a question I'm treated with the upmost respect. Most of all when no other lawyer would accept my case because they would not be paid their full fee that did not matter to Vince he knew I needed help and he help with my settlement for a reduced fee! I am so grateful to him and everyone he has working for him! He has been a blessing in my life. He gave me a miracle!

Vincent J. Criscuolo & Staff,Highly Recommended A+ Law Firm!
My Lawyer was Vincent J. Criscuolo & Staff, they recently settled out my WC with a sect.32 lump sum payment w/ medical left open on 10/07/2014. I was badly injured from a faulty ladder at work on 03/07/2011,the same ladder had caused another manager to have broken her arm in 3 places.Mr. Criscuolo`s staff are amazing attentive,polite and always address your concerns and problems quickly, keeping you informed every step of the way.You can always count on his staff to help you in anyway they can.Vince is the kind of Lawyer that will stay up late at night to work on your case.Who tells it like it is and what your options are.He spent much time talking to me even though he is a very very busy Lawyer.Always returned my calls and was with me every step of the way,at every hearing.He is extremely intelligent,and knows and follows the law. He will fight tooth and nail to get you everything you deserve in your case.If you are lucky enough to get him and his staff to represent couldn`t have a better Lawyer and Staff.

My review for Vincent J. Criscuolo
I have been a client of Vincent Criscuolo for over 10 years. I was in a bad accident at work. Before I knew it I was on the hit list to lose my job until I hired Mr. Vincent Criscuolo. Because of this great law firm I was awarded a nice settlement which I would not have gotten if it weren't for Mr. Criscuolo and his staff. He saved my life literally.

Vincent and then Josh were great until after they received their money from my claim. Now that I need help with medical issues no one in their office is helping me get the surgery that I need. Should have fought for a higher claim since I was planning to move out of state and Workers Comp/NYSIF are useless.

Incompatent law firm
I had my first hearing with workman's compensation in which they was supposed to be about adding me getting paid for military time missed do to my injury at work, unpaid medical bills, reimbursement for mileage and money spent for supplies. I ended up having a lawyer I never met before represent me in the hearing. He rushed thru the hearing lasting about ten minutes. I didn't get to present unpaid bills, he only asked for a continuation to research about being paid for my loss of Reserve pay and his final request was for them to with hold $150 to be paid to the law firm and to be taken out of my check at the rate of $25 per week. After the hearing he rushed off to another hearing. Well my next check was on time. The next check I had not gotten by my normal date, so I call the insurance company about it and found out that the hearing changed the date that I get paid, so I am now sitting here broke with bills that was supposed to come out of my account on certain dates and now because his office failed to tell me this I will have all kinds of overdraft fees and penalties for the money not being in the account. Plus my auto insurance is going to be cancelled also. As you can imagine I fired this law firm. I don't recommend anyone use this firm.
