Accomplished what another Greenville attorney said "couldn't be done"
Mr. Criscitiello is excellent at what he does. A different Greenville attorney said the charge on my record could not be expunged. Less that 3 months later the charge is expunged from my record. Thank you, Mr. Criscitiello!

A gift from God!!
When your fiancé is behind the wall facing 20 years or more and you're left wondering if your love one will see there daughter 2nd birthday or possibly see her graduate is pretty stressful. I visited 3 lawyers & no one made me feel like my fiance had another chance but John Criscitiello. He could have easily went away for 10-20 years without the proper criminal defense, but you made the impossible, possible with your advanced knowledge of the law!! I have the up most respect for you and your occupation. I recommend JC to anyone needing legal help. We appreciate you and cant thank you enough.

If you want results, hire JC
I have not had many encounters with an attorney. That is a good thing. The attorneys I had to call upon were those who helped me with purchase of my home. Pretty simple, every day things. Until two years ago when my son found himself facing very serious legal trouble. It was then that I met John Criscitiello, JC as many of his clients refer to him. My first conversation was with John on the phone while my son sat in his office. John was nothing but professional and helpful. His calming voice and manner were both gifts to me and would continue to be during a very difficult and trying time. My son's case did not turn out to be easy or quick. But from the very beginning John assured us that he would work tirelessly to get the best possible outcome, and he did. Even when things looked darkest John continued to press forward, seeking the evidence he needed to prove my son's case. Never did we feel abandoned, never did the case seem hopeless. John gave us the truth, straight up. And as difficult as it was to hear at times, John reminded us of his word...that he would work always for my son's best interest. I am happy to say that even though it took some time, my son's case has been resolved with an outcome even better than we had hoped for. John is absolutely the best attorney, and man, for the job. He is fair, he is reasonable, and above all he is honest. I truly cannot say enough about him, and I recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
