Testimonials


We value our clients opinion very much. This is what some had to say.

A few years back both my children were in need of legal assistance. One was for a motor vehicle incident and the other for criminal mischief. It was my son that concerned me the most. He was a follower and listened to his peers rather than what was right. One night he and his friends decided it would be cool to smash some mailboxes. Well, they got caught and were arrested. I contacted a lawyer at Cirello & Vessicchio, llc to represent him. The attorney was very direct with my son in that he made him realize how serious this really was. He didn’t sugar coat anything with him, make it OK or minor for what he did. Not only did John do an exceptional job in representing him, he made my son realize it was time to grow up and stop being a follower. My son got off with community service and was really lucky. He never got in any trouble after that." ~ D.M.
