The Delahunt Experience
Without droning on for too long, I'll keep this review sweet and simple. I am entirely clueless when it comes to anything regarding the law and it's functions. I went through a terribly difficult and scary time but Delahunt helped to keep things simple for me and got me a better negotiation deal then I could've ever asked for. Consulting with him regarding any of my questions or issues was never a problem, as he was very helpful in explaining everything to me thoroughly. Now, out of coming out of a roughly two year trial, I am beyond relieved with where I am now and that is all thanks to the work that Andrew Delahunt put in for my case.

Experienced, effective, efficient & economical!
Fortunate, to have had Andrew Delahunt, Esq. represent me throughout the entirety of my case. From the start, Mr.Delahunt already had a thorough knowledge of what the process for my case would be, from beginning to end. Even still, he consistently provided extensive, detailed, communication and support throughout the entire ordeal. He really does have his clients’ best interests in mind. Overall, well pleased with his service as well as the outcome of the case. Irrefutably, a true expert and real professional. Strongly recommended.

Best Possible Outcome!!
This was my first time getting in trouble like this and I was very scared. I was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery for defending myself from a man who followed me into my parking garage and was filming me. Unfortunately, I was not filming and the video he showed the police was one in which only I appeared to be the aggressor. Andrew was disappointed with how the situation was handled and asked what outcome I would like to see with this case. Of course I wanted it to go away like it never happened. I didn’t want to see the man again who had held my arm in a lock almost breaking it in three places. I have PTSD from that incident and get a horrible feeling of dread in my gut every time I go back to that garage. Andrew suggested getting a deferment seeing as this was my first offense. I just got the news that we got the outcome we wanted and I’ll have to do some anger management classes and community service which I think will ultimately be good things. After 12 months of staying out of trouble this misdemeanor will be erased from my record like it had never happened and I can go back to my life as a law-abiding citizen. Andrew made every step of this calm and simple. He really helped me feel better throughout the whole process, which is saying something because I was quite a nervous wreck. While it angers me that the man who physically assaulted me (despite the cops only seeing my defense from his assault) is still walking around Beverly Hills practicing law, I’m ready to try to put this ordeal behind me and move on. I’m able to do that thanks in full to Andrew and his hard work and expert counsel.

Great communication and knowledgeable
Andrew was responsive and made sure that I understood where I stood during the entirety of my trial. He answered questions in a way that was easy for me to understand. Often times he would take initiative to inform me of any updates or changes in my court proceedings and what options I had moving forward. Having Andrew as my lawyer helped ease the stress and anxiety that I initially felt during my case. Definitely would recommend Andrew to others.

Andrew was the perfect attorney for my case; he did his due diligence, performed extremely well, and put my mind at ease. Knowing my case was being handled by an attorney who is an expert in his field made me have no reason to worry. Legal issues can be stressful, but having Andrew on my team made all my stress melt away.

DUI / suspended license driving / exceeding 100mph
Andrew was recommended to me by a family friend. I had came to him with a DUI case as well as a driving with a suspended license case that involved me going over 100 mph. After a few different consultations, I was convinced on hiring Andrew due to his straight forward explanations and payment fees. Andrew took on my cases and walked me step by step through every court date and is still in contact with me post sentencing. Andrew was able to remove jail time/ house arrest. He was even able to dismiss part of my case. I was very pleased with his services and most importantly the results he was able to get me.

Experienced Lawyer
Andrew is very experience and he knows how to deal with restraining order. Someone filed a restraining order against my boyfriend’s sister. The case was able to dismiss without having witness testify. He tried to understand the whole story before helping us, which is extremely helpful. Highly recommended!

If you need a lawyer Andrew is your guy!
Ok so I got busted for my first time and was looking at 1 felony charge of sales and 2 misdemeanors for possession and paraphernalia( a lot more than your personal use) So I was skeptical about just getting a free public defender or getting my own lawyer and if you find yourself questioning about that then get yourself a lawyer and protect your behind and that’s exactly what Andrew did for me, not once did I step into a court room and best yet not once did I have to do any jail time or even probation he got all charges dropped for me! But of course I had to do my part by getting cleaned and detoxed and go to meetings and sign up for my own outpatient program and successfully complete and show on my part that I was doing what I had to do to rehabilitate myself instead of having the court appoint it for me so it looks good if you get all that out the way before you even have your first appearance. With all that being said Andrew came through on his part and did the best outcome possible that could have happened and I did my part by getting clean. He’s flexible about payment plans as long as your consistent and responsible then everything is good. If you find yourself in a pickle don’t hesitate to call Andrew for a consultation he’ll try his best for you and that’s what you’ll get out of him.
