My name is John M. Delaney, Jr. I have been a lawyer in Madison County since 1981 and have offered legal services to clients as a sole practitioner from my office in East Alton, Illinois, since 1997. I began my legal career clerking for Judge Joseph Barr in the late 1970's. In 1981, I became assistant state attorney for Madison County, Illinois, working for the Madison County States Attorney until 1985. I gained a considerable amount of trial experience as an assistant state's attorney and an extensive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution's case. I have handled numerous complex felony cases, including 3 murder cases successfully prosecuted. Following that time, I was a Partner/Attorney in the former law firm of Smith, Allen, Mendenhall and Delaney, then located in Alton, Illinois, concentrating on Civil Litigation and Criminal Defense from 1985-1996.
I consider myself and my fellow lawyers to be an integral part of our nation's civil and criminal justice system and I am committed to using my legal skills and experience to uphold your rights and support you through your legal challenges.
