Best Defense Lawyer Hands Down!
I was falsely accused and charged with 3 felonies. Colin took on the criminal justice machine and took my case to trial. Colin demonstrated incredible talent, skill and knowledge of the law. He defended my constitutional rights, presented my case masterfully and made the prosecutor look like a buffoon in front of the jury. Colin won the case. Colin is a top notch lawyer, more importantly, Colin truly cares about you, and he treated me like a close personal friend and fought like it too. I highly recommend Colin Delli Jovi to anyone that wants a lawyer that’ll fight for your rights and will defend you tooth and nail. Thank you Colin for all your hard work.

Great Lawyer
Working with Colin was a great experience. He is a stand up guy, and very prompt and approachable throughout the entire process. His rates are competitive and he goes the extra mile to make sure his clients are catered to properly. He went above and beyond on multiple occasions for me, and is extremely thorough until the end. Highly recommended.

Single mom in need of services
I came to Colin Delli Bovi with no money and little hope that I would be heard in court. Colin never judged me for my past and only seen me for the person I was becoming. He took my case pro-bono and guided me through every step until my parenting plan was finalized. Through the up's and downs Colin stood by my side. Thank you Colin for believing in my vision. You truly are a blessing. I wish you nothing but success in all that you do!

Traffic Violations
Colin rocked my case. A++. He stayed in contact, was awesome with communicating the what ifs of the case, and was able to negotiate with the city to amend one of my charges and to receive the lowest fine on the other. I’m grateful and relieved the whole thing is over.

Would Highly Recommend Having Colin on your Defense Team
Upon contacting Colin, I got an immediate response where he set up a meeting to discuss a path forward. During this meeting, Colin answered all my questions and eased my concerns by explaining the legal process and what to expect in the coming days. He was easily contacted through the entire legal process and provided quick and understandable answers. No question was too little. Once engaged in the legal processes, Colin was always prepared and pushed to get the best possible outcome for my situation, which was achieved in the end. He was very professional and approachable throughout the entire process making me feel like my concerns were his priority. Would highly recommend having Colin on your defense team.

Excellent
Mr. Delli Bovi was very polite and professional. He went out of his way for my case. Even after the prosecutor opposed for my sentence to be withdrawn, He still managed to get my sentence withdrawn without having to bring it to court. He’s was very quick to respond and stayed on top of my case. I would recommend him and I would hire him again if needed.

Highly Competent Attorney
Colin answered my call right away. I could tell he cared based upon the way he listened, digested the information and then responded with truth to his answers. His knowledge was great and he also never made any false promises, however did express concern and care for accomplishing my needs as the end goal. He was always available for a phone call or text even during a busy work day for him. I would highly recommend Colin for anyone needing to retain an attorney.

Great Attorney.
Colin was great in helping me resolve my situation. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate. I had no clue to the process as it was the first time I was in this type of situation. Colin explained things well and seemed to genuinely care about the best outcome. I would highly recommend him if you need an attorney.

Colin is a very competent, effective, and friendly lawyer who is generous with his time
When I was arrested for my Aggravated DUI, I was initially very distressed and pessimistic about what the outcome would be. It was my first run-in with the law (and the last; I will make sure of that). I had a very high BAC, and some other aspects of the case were not in my favor. The police collected a blood sample, so I knew the evidence against me was concrete. I found Colin on this site, saw his excellent reviews, as well as the fact that he had handled numerous DUI cases before. I gave him a call, and he was very friendly and generous with his time, speaking to me for about an hour. He was also very realistic about what I could expect, and he didn't recommend a trial, due to the physical evidence (blood sample) against me. After speaking with him, I felt very confident in his skills, so I hired him for my case. When I met with him in person, he spoke with me for over an hour and explained the potential outcomes of the case. He mentioned that the judge and prosecuting attorney would want me to take responsibility for my actions and demonstrate that I was serious about reforming my behavior. So that is exactly what I did, since I am serious about following the law. He gave me some ideas for what I could do to take responsibility, and I followed all of his recommendations as diligently as possible. At the hearing, we were able to improve the plea deal to a lower charge and greatly reduced penalties. The judge personally commended me for taking responsibility for my actions, which I really appreciated hearing. My plea deal was essentially the best-case scenario, and Colin's excellent advice and guidance helped me out tremendously. I am extremely grateful for Colin's service, and he earned every penny that I paid him. I am back on the right path, and I feel much better about life. Thank you, Colin!

Exceptional DUI attorney
Colin was an excellent attorney. We had a 1/2 hour consultation beforehand and he was very knowledgeable and realistic when it came to possible outcomes to the case. If anyone is ever in need of a great DUI attorney I would definitely recommend Colin. He worked hard and quickly to get the case resolved and did get the case amended from a dui to a reckless driving. Colin stayed in constant contact with me throughout the process whether it was by phones calls or via text, I was never in the dark. Colin worked with me on the payment side of things which was very helpful. This was my first lawyer experience and it was a great one. Thanks Mr. Delli Bovi

Outstanding, Empathetic, Honest, Hardworking!
I was originally assigned a public defender who wanted to plea me out and not put any effort towards my case. I met with Mr. Delli Bovi to go over my case. He was patient and actually took the time to listen to what I had to say. He went above and beyond to help me and my family. It was a no-brainer to hire Mr. Delli Bovi as my attorney. Throughout the case, he did a fantastic job communicating with me step by step so I was never in the dark. He was thorough on following up leads in my defense. He provided me sound advise along the way and made me feel comfortable having put my trust and future in his hands. He could've easily said no to my case but he took a chance with me as well and for that, I am forever grateful for him giving me a chance to prove that I am a man of my word. I would highly recommend Colin Delli Bovi to anyone in need of an attorney.

Best criminal defence attorney in Helena
I was assigned 2 different public defender's for trumped up charges in Lewis and Clark county and neither one wanted to put in any leg work to get the outcome I wanted in a plea deal. It wasn't untill I was assigned Colin that things started to change. He's a young, intelligent, hard working attorney that was prepared to go to trial instead of taking a plea like other attorney's.
