About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

Michael DegliObizzi joined Holloway Law after a successful start to his career as a Deputy Attorney General at the Delaware Department of Justice. Michael specializes in Criminal Defense, Driving Under the Influence cases, and Civil Litigation. He is an experienced trial attorney, having tried over 50 cases in the Superior Court of Delaware, the Court of Common Pleas, Family Court, and the Justice of the Peace Courts.

Michael began his tenure at the DOJ prosecuting misdemeanor criminal offenses in the Court of Common Pleas and Justice of the Peace Courts. He primarily focused on DUI cases and was the lead attorney responsible for running the Court of Common Pleas’ Mental Health Court on behalf of the State. He progressed in his duties to handling complex felony cases including financial related crimes, Burglary, Robbery, Drug Dealing, and weapon/firearm related offenses. Additionally, Michael has successfully prosecuted several homicide and gang participation cases.

In 2016, Michael was promoted to be the Assistant Unit Head of the Misdemeanor Trial Unit where he supervised all new criminal Deputy Attorneys General as they entered the office. He was responsible for teaching new prosecutors how to handle a caseload and take a case to trial. As part of his duties, he reviewed every misdemeanor DUI arrest in New Castle County to determine the appropriate plea offer. Michael is certified in DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. He has led numerous DUI trainings for both law enforcement officers and attorneys.

In 2018, Michael was promoted to Unit Head of the Domestic Violence Unit. He supervised a team of Deputy Attorneys General, paralegals, administrative specialists, and social workers that handled misdemeanor and felony domestic violence, child abuse, and elder abuse cases. He was the Attorney General’s designee on the Fatal Incident Review Team, the Victim Services Advisory Committee, and the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council committees.

While in law school, Mike served as a Judicial intern for the Honorable Chief Justice Myron T. Steele of the Delaware Supreme Court. He also interned at the law firm of Kimmel, Carter.

When he is not zealously advocating for his clients, Mike is the head wrestling coach and coordinator of the St. John the Beloved youth wrestling program and volunteer assistant coach for Salesianum School’s wrestling team. Mike was a two time Delaware State wrestling champion in high school and enjoyed a successful collegiate wrestling career while attending Duke University.

Experienced, Humble, Caring, Detailed, Proactive, Knowledgeable
Won case that called for minimum mandatory sentence. Was alert responsive and focused. Detail skills unmatched and his court presence is respected by all. Sharp attorney with demeanor most doesn't have. Humble, kind, caring but don't get it twisted he gets the job done!

Effective, Efficient, and goes the Extra Yard (Mile)
Michael was communicative every step of the way. This alone is the best quality in any relationship, especially one of this nature. He payed attention to detail, and brought it to the table when necessary. I was satisfied during the entirety of my case, and recommend him for any of your needs. His charisma, prior experience, and lever of care were both apparent and appreciated.

Attentive, Efficient and Communicative
Mike did a great job on my traffic case which could have cost me $3K in fines and only ended up being $25. Hiring Mike was the best money I ever spent.

The best criminal defense lawyer in Delaware!
Mr. DegliObizzi helped me with a criminal case I was going through. He was above and beyond and even represented me on the civil/family side of the case as well. He went above and beyond to represent me, defend me and protect my rights. He was always quick to respond to calls and emails. I highly recommend Mr. DegliObizzi for representation!
