Thankful review
John Crangle handled a case for my daughter with such diligence and understanding. He went over and beyond with her case and we were more than delighted in the outcome. I would definitely recommend him and his firm to anyone. He believes good people do make mistakes but deserve another chance and works hard to accomplish that

“Straight up professional”
In August 2013 I got myself into some trouble in Greenville South Carolina I was charged with a assault and battery high and aggravated which is a felony..John Crangle took on my case and I was able to get my high and aggravated assault dropped to a second-degree assault which is a misdemeanor so no felony on my record with I believe three years probation which was a hell of a lot better deal then I would’ve had just walking in front of the judge all by myself definitely knows what he’s doing an is a hell of a good lawyer and he still answering my legal questions till this day seven years later almost great guy!

Case Closed...with No Anxiety!
John handled my case from start to finish with no frills and issues. He definitely reassured me to the point of no anxiety and worries! The fees were very reasonable. John was always prompt with calls, messages and office visits to me. I have and always will recommend him to others!

Speeding Ticket Relief
John was a huge help when I needed his services for a high speeding ticket. He was quick and professional throughout all communication and interactions and was able to get me a much more reasonable verdict than the six points I was facing. Fees were more than reasonable and I would recommend him to anyone.
