Knowledgeable and helpful attorney
2 days before Christmas I needed a poa, will etc for my brother who was in a rehab facility and could not physically for medical reasons leave the facility. Every lawyer I contacted told me they would get back to me after the holidays. Time was of the essence. Mr Crisanti was recommended, and he would be willing to help. He prepared the documents that day so I could get a traveling notary who came to the facility and finalize the documents so they could be filed. He was extremely caring and understanding and was willing to take his private time to help me. I was coming into this problem from a different state, he was willing to go the extra step and help me. He met my needs at a time I could not get any help and was in a state of panic. If you need a lawyer, that you feels he cares about you, then Mr Crisanti is the attorney I would definitely recommend based on my personal experiences. 2 months after I had some legal questions and he not only remember me, but answered my questions with no additional charges. I’d sing his praise from the rooftops. He is knowledgeable and is willing to go the extra mile.

Thanks Robert Crisanti
Robert took care of my dads estate. He helped me to understand the process before getting started. At times, I needed some kid glove care. Robert did so without making me feel small or incompetent. Thanks to Robert and his guidance my dads estate was settled in a swift, painless and efficient manner. My family is grateful to Robert and his staff Helen. They took the stress off of us so that we could grieve without worry. Thank you.

I hired Mr. Crisanti after my mother passed away to manage the closing of her estate. The services provided by Mr. Crisanti and is staff were very professional. He was excellent at keeping me informed of everything needed to bring the estate to a close. Mr. Crisanti was always available and prompt in responding to any questions. I recommend his firm.

Guardianship Granted!
Mr. Crisanti did an awesome job filing a petition for the guardianship of our loved one. He kept me and my husband well informed every step of the way and made sure the whole process went smoothly. He completely put our minds at ease and we’re so grateful to him. Mr. Crisanti, we appreciate you and we won’t hesitate to get in touch if we need your services again.

I hereby recommend Mr. Crisanti without reservation
Mr. Crisanti is very well-respected in the legal community and has earned this respect by following his values and commitment to his vocation. He is honorable, knowledgeable, and straight-forward. He will not run up your bill, waste your time, or give you unrealistic expectations for your case. Mr. Crisanti is concise, efficient, and always truthful; he will tell you precisely where you stand and what direction you should go. In representing you, you can trust in his expertise and that he will stick to the facts that matter and have a legal basis. As my attorney, Mr. Crisanti was always professional, at the top of his game, and never missed a deadline. Mr. Crisanti made the best out of my case, which has been long and arduous, to say the least. Thanks to Mr. Crisanti, I was able to finalize my divorce with dignity and move on with my life. I am so grateful to him and I cannot recommend Mr. Crisanti more highly.

Top Notch Attorney
Robert Crisanti just finished handling a divorce for us. We wanted an amicable divorce with a fair agreement. There just simply could not have been a better attorney for this than Mr. Crisanti. Excellent work, reliable, reachable and reasonable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed help.

Estate Settled - Quality work
Robert handled the estate of my parents. It started with the financial planning when they needed care. He helped us determine what nursing home budget was right for them. We had to sell their home and Robert did our closing. Robert was with our family through the death of both parents and settled their estate. We could not have gone through this difficult time without Robert managing things for us. We are so grateful.

Not only a fantastic attorney, but a great man!
I met Robert when I was in my darkest days both emotionally and criminally!! He has not only guided me through my legal issues, but his concern for my well being has been more than evident!! That is something I never would have expected from a criminal attorney. He has made himself available to me at all times!! He's a barracuda:: with a heart for his clients. You can not ask for anything more than that!!

Your in good hands!
Attorney Crisanti was an excellent attorney who handled everything for me from the very beginning. I didn't know what to expect retaining him with me living in a different state but he delivered and I was not disappointed! He advised me before my court date of what to expect which gave me peace of mind. He represented me well! I would highly recommend him.

Robert took my case when nobody else would and got the result that I feel I deserved
Robert helped get a criminal case against me dismissed. This was a complex case involving a personal criminal complaint over a property dispute. After attempting to hire multiple attorneys, Robert is the only one that would agree to take my case and in the end, with his help, it was dismissed.

He's The Best As An Attorney
As a criminal defense attorney he is - in my opinion - the best. He responds to inquiries promptly, he has an answer, and he further explains the answer if necessary. I feel much more comfortable knowing that he is representing me.
