Spared my Life
I was in a very complicated legal situation with very well paid attorneys that didn’t care.. Glynn was my last desperate hope who was referred to me by a good friend. I already exhausted all financial resources but still chose to hire him with what little I had left along with a payment plan. He took my case and treated me like human being instead of another paycheck. He persuaded the court to do what was right. I ended up serving a fair sentence for my involvement in an accident that many people contributed to but were not charged as I was. Without Glynn taking over my case I would not be here to write this review. I am infinitely grateful for what this man was able to do for me and my family!

Mr. Delatte is incredible
I was charged with DUI under unusual circumstances. However, I failed a breathalyzer and incriminated myself on tape. Despite those odds, Mr. Delatte was able to negotiate a plea and have the DUI dismissed. In short, he is a miracle worker. To me, there is only one DUI firm to choose, and I was lucky enough to choose him. If you want the best, you will too.

BEST LAWYER HANDS DOWN
Amazing lawyer!! If you want a lawyer that will stay on top of your case, answer your calls, emails, tell you the truth and do what he promises, then this is the man you want. I work abroad and I am from the US and he handled my case with me while i worked overseas and did everything he could to accommodate my schedule and time that I needed to home in US, showed up for me when I could not be there ... There is no other lawyer you need...I can't say enough good things about this man....HE KNOWS THE LAW AND ON YOUR SIDE!!!

Great staff. Got dwi and my license didn't get suspended thanks to them. Might cost a little more but you never have to go to court and they handle everything.

Glynn is top notch and knows the law!
Glynn was extremely helpful to me in getting my driver's license back! His background experience makes him the best attorney I can recommend for DWI issues. He knows his stuff! Glynn is also very helpful in answering questions you are surely going to have if you've never been through this kind of situation before. I definitely recommend his services.

Excellent Handling of my Situation!
I recommend Glynn Delatte highly due to the excellent handling of my complex legal situation..he and his staff (Thomas Dewey, attorney, and Denise Bonnette, assistant) navigated me through some very rough waters; after some expert legal maneuvering all came out as close to perfect as you could possibly get.

He has the requisite reputation, knowledge, experience and guts to make a real difference in the lives of the motorist accused of a DUI or related offense. Attorney Delatte has earned a true national reputation for minimizing or eliminating the accusations of the government against the motorist accused. I trust him. I know you will too."

"Glynn Delatte is Louisiana. From New Orleans to Shreveport, Glynn is your only choice if you are a citizen charged with DUI\DUI in Louisiana. What sets Glynn apart from the other local attorneys is the breadth and width of the knowledge he possesses when attacking a drunk driving case on behalf of a citizen wrongly accused. He brings to the table an amazing background in the DUI\DWI arena, along with a state of the art understanding of how to attack the Government’s case, including breath and blood tests. As Maine's State Delegate to the National College for DUI Defense, I have been honored to attend the national seminars with Glynn and consult with him on various cases. He is a true American, who defends the Constitution, fights for his clients, and upholds the Louisiana motto, "Union, Justice, Confidence." If I'm a citizen charged with DUI\DWI in Louisiana, I prepare to fight the Government's case. That flight starts by hiring Glynn Delatte."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Having been a member of the National College for DUI Defense for over 10 years now, and that of two to three annual DUI defense seminars, I have been privileged to meet and know most of our nations finest DUI defense attorneys. Glynn Delatte is at the top of this list. His reputation for excellence, training and talent is nationwide. Mention DUI Defense in Louisiana or to anyone in the College and Glynn's name will unanimously come forth. The fact he is a dear friend is but a bonus. I would trust a loved ones fate with Glynn. What do you think my referral opinion is?"

I have heard him lecture to national lawyers groups, and I use in my practice what he taught. I am proud to also call him a friend, and I look forward to the next time our paths cross."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Glynn for years and am honored to endorse him as a lawyer and friend. I am a former police officer and am well aware of the advantage that gives me in court as a practicing criminal attorney. Glynn was a state trooper before becoming a cyclone in the courtroom and has been winning cases since becoming a criminal defense attorney. When officers are subjected to a cross examination by Glynn they better hold on tight. Glynn knows when they are fudging testimony, when they are violating their own departmental policies, when they are making it up and when they are playing it straight. I met Glynn when he was speaking at a national criminal defense seminar and have admired him ever since. Glynn is absolutely my "go to man" whenever i am asked for a referral anywhere in the great state of Louisiana. I believe a criminal defense attorney should fight for his clients rights in and out of the courtroom. In a "knock down/drag out fight" I want Glynn next to me. - "DWI Dude" Balagia"
DUI and DWI Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Glynn Delatte is one of Louisiana's top DWI attorneys, hands down. Glynn had a career as a state trooper and in that time learned more about the way the police handle DWI investigations than any other criminal defense attorney could ever begin to know. His experience and knowledge of the process from the other side gives Glynn and insight and advantage that can't be matched. He is fearless and resourceful, and will never back down from a challenge issued by the state. Glynn's clients know that when they walk into a courtroom with him at their side, the evidence is going to hit the fan. If I was in trouble in Louisiana, no one other than Glynn Delatte would be at my side."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Glynn is absolutely THE best DUI defense attorney in the entire state of Louisiana. He is determined and fights for the rights of his clients. I have attended many national DUI seminars with Glynn over the past 5 years and when I have an issue come up regarding Lousiana, he is the man I call. He is dedicated to staying on top of the law and of the science of DUI arrests and honestly cares about his clients and their cases. If you are arrested for a DUI in Louisiana do yourself a favor and call Glynn. Then allow me to say, I told you so."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Glynn is nationally known for his work in the field of DUI Defense. I have personally attended numerous national DUI educational programs with Glynn over the last several years. He has been the leader in the DUI Defense field in Louisiana and have personally referred cases to him in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. He is a determined fighter, who like his beloved LSU Tigers, wont give an inch and will take the battle to his opponents. His knowledge of the law and the science in the DUI Defense field make him tops in Louisiana. He, quite simply, is THE lawyer you hire when charged with a drinking and driving related offense in the State of Louisiana."
