Mine has been a life of service which has included doing my duty as both a United States Marine and a New York City Police Officer. I have already raised three very fine young adults, Matthew, Jacklyn and Brian and have two beautiful  new infants, Conor and Cecille at home! I had previously spent several wonderful years teaching and coaching at Salesian High School in New Rochelle, NY and several more traveling the country as a performing songwriter. I have served as an adjunct professor at several colleges,  where I have taught paralegal studies, civil law and criminal law. In my life I have been blessed to dedicate myself to the service of my country and my my community. These days, I am dedicated to the service of my clients, most of whom have been very seriously injured or have had criminal charges against them. While I can never repair an injured body  or soul, I can, and I have,  secured for my clients the highest measure of justice the law will allow. I take our mission and our responsibility very seriously. I carefully select our cases and our clients so as to maximize the individual care I personally give to each case. I am a trial attorney and will approach your case with the mindset of properly preparing it for a jury to hear. Over the years, I have become convinced that this is the ONLY way to get the insurance industry to take cases seriously. I will not ever settle a case for anything less than both what I, and my client, after careful consideration, think is fair and equitable. Period! I was recently nominated to run for the NYS Supreme Court, losing a very close election. It was an honor to be asked!

Great Lawyer!
I have known Monty for many years. I have consulted with him on various legal matters and have always received excellent legal advice. He is a very knowledgeable attorney in many fields of practice and his advice, patience and understanding are well appreciated. He is an asset to the Bar.

An Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Delaney recently represented my son in a complex matter. Given a set of very bad circumstances, Mr. Delaney was able to achieve a very good outcome for my son and my family because of his reputation, his intelligence, his personal approach and the fact that he communicates kindly and cordially to everyone he deals with.

The best lawyer and man in the legal profession
Mr. Delaney represented my then 19 year old daughter. He is an excellent lawyer. My daughter was in a lot of trouble and Montgomery not only was an excellent lawyer, he is a superb human being. Montgomery cares about the life's of his clients. He took my daughter under his wing and kept giving her good advice that will stay with her all her life. He spent hours talking with her and guiding her. My daughter was raised in a domestic violence home until she was 14 years old. She was missing a good father figure. Mr. Delaney went out of his way to nurture and guide my daughter with understanding and genuine caring. He not only resolved my daughters case in an outstanding way, he left her with an more positive outlook that she never had. Mr. Delaney fought hard for my daughter, he never gave up, because he truly cared about her. I have never met an attorney like him. He has the human factor that is lacking in the legal profession. I am honored to have met this extraordinary man.

Job Well Done! Thank You Mr. Delaney!
I had a very bad car accident and suffered both physical and emotional injury. Montgomery Delaney handled my case meticulously and I am very pleased with the results. I hope I never need a lawyer again but if I do, I would definitely use Montgomery Delaney.

The Attorney that keeps on Fighting!
I would Highly recommend Montgomery J. Delaney to anyone looking for great legal council. If you want an attorney who will fight tooth and nail for you in the courtroom he is definitely the man to take on your case. This man will not give up! Montey took on a civil/personal Injury suit for me which very well could have been the toughest case in his career. This was a case that most attorneys would not look at due to the amount of work involved and who we were fighting but Montgomery being a Marine brought me into battle. He kept me informed every step of the way, down a long road at the fault of the defense always trying to stop us. Every wall they put up Montgomery knocked down. During trial he had a medical issue that landed him in the hospital. He checked himself out against Doctors orders just so he could make it to trial the next day and keep fighting for me. That alone speaks volumes about his perseverance and dedication to his career and clients. Montgomery, I thank you very much for fighting for me. You're a big man with an even bigger heart! Sincerely, DRE

Endorsement of Montgomery J. Delaney
I am a 67 year old man that fortunately never had the experience of hiring a lawyer up until now. I have heard horror stories but I must say my experience with Mr. Delaney has made a difficult situation for my wife and I much more managable. Mr. Delaney's professional manner is a very special blend of concern for the rights and feelings of his clients and his ability and eagerness to listen to us and provide us with the feeling that our case is his most important and warrants his complete attention. It is with great enthusiasm that I endorse Montgomery Delaney as a highly involved attorney whose integrity and honesty is above reproach.

"KUDOS FOR THE A-TEAM"
Retaining the services of Mr. M. Delaney, of "Laub & Delaney" was certainly the correct decision one could make. The leadership of Mr. Laub and Mr. Delaney certainly showed in directing my case to its favorable conclusion. Turning from victim to plaintiff , in the legal process, is a challenge. The Staff , as well as all the professional people i.e., lawyers, doctors, para-legals,engineers, financial consultants, focus groups, etc, should be commended for their skilled contribution. I definitely got the sense of a-team effort; Definitely prepared. Watching these people working within the legal system restored my faith in how the system is suppose to work. In closing, seeing my wife giving Mr. Delaney a big hug outside the courthouse says it all. My family is back on track.

It is in the lion's den that he masters his domain.Montgomery J.Delaney.True warrior,master strategist.Noble to the cause.
I came to Mr. Delaney with a mess of a case.I was not being represented well,if at all ,by another attorney and decided that it was time to find some one who would handle my matters on a more personal and professional level.I needed my truth told and heard by the opposition.I needed the opposition to acknowledge thier fault and render a just compensation for their neglegence and my pain and suffering. After more than a few interviews with different attorneys,I sat across from some one who didn't sound like any one I had spoken to before. That person was Montgomery Delaney. He listened and heard that I was in trouble and needed a strong voice to make sense of what had truely become,in my opinion, a lost cause. After hearing the specifics of my case Mr. Delaney and his staff worked dilligently to prepare my case. Throughout the process Mr.Delaney let me know that I wasn't just some client.He let me know that we were a team. He stayed loyal like family.He was my big brother. Like a man that came to defend his family .Like a nobleman. Other than my father ,Iv'e never been in the presence of such great command ,wisdom and intelligence. Mr.Delaney ,you are truly my living hero. I can't thank you enough. David Petillo

Catch Him If You Can
I hired Monty in 2012 after I fell and broke my shoulder at a public school. I had confidence in him to do a good job based on our discussions. As time went by my case seemed to be getting less priority. It was handed off to an associate or intern who is no longer with the firm. If fact, there is no longer any support staff with the firm either. In February 2013 I called about a minor accident I was involved in and discovered the partnership was in the process of dissolving. This explained a lot for me, so I decided to get a new lawyer. She had a difficult time getting my case files from Mr. Delaney, which makes me wonder if I have lost valuable information in the transfer. I wish he would have been upfront and done the right thing with me.

Personal injury Attorney | Mar 04
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Mr. Delaney was my teacher, baseball coach and mock trial team coach in high school. He later became my supervising partner when he brought me on as an associate at his firm, where he taught me the right way to zealously represent clients within the bounds of our ethical duties as officers of the court. He is now a colleague and friend. If you are lucky enough to have your case accepted into his practice, he will treat it as if it is his own. Indeed, there is a saying he taught me that I try to remember ever day: "A trial lawyer has many cases, but a client has but one." Monty will treat your case as the only one he has."
Medical malpractice Attorney | Apr 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Monte since 1988 when we started law school together, and I can state that he is a fantastic lawyer."
Personal injury Attorney | Sep 23
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Several months ago, Mr. Dealney assisted me on a personal injury case my office had against Con Edison. Mr. Delaney clearly has a wealth of knowledge in proving damages, and his knowledge of the spine and anatomy was impressive and certainly useful in trial work. We are now working on another case together, and I frequently seek Mr. Delaney's opinion regarding case strategy. I would recommend Mr. Delaney very highly as an attorney of experience, knowledge and integrity."
