As a practicing defense attorney for over eight years three years as a law clerk with several District Attorney's offices as a law student, I have handled cases ranging from simple traffic tickets, to sex crimes, to death penalty cases.  I have studied police, prisons, gangs, and criminal law for over 11 years.

In addition to my experience working on both sides of the aisle having handled nearly every type of case, what separates me from other attorneys is the pride I take in serving my clients.  My clients can reach me anytime - they do not go through answering services or receptionists.  I give straight, no-nonsense advice - despite some attorneys that will scare their clients for more money by overstating their case (or charging you for jury trial up front knowing they won't go to trial).  And I will always handle your case myself.

Great choice!
My daughter got in trouble and I was terrified not ever being in this situation.I randomly picked Mr. Delgado phone #. He listened to the problem and patiently explained the process and the next steps. Our case had an excellent turn out , once the fees are paid and community hours completed my daughter will have a clean record. I'm glad I acquired Mr. Delgado services.

An Excellent Experience
I made a great decision in hiring Matt. In the first conversation I had with him, he displayed a sensitivity to my situation, a complete willingness to work with me, and he carefully paid attention to the facts of my case. He is flexible and easy to relate to, and he made it a point to ease the stress of the entire legal/court process. He was always honest and upfront with me, which I greatly appreciated. Matt pays attention to detail and his confidence serves him well in the courtroom. He did a wonderful job in getting me an outcome that I was very satisfied with. He definitely delivered and I recommend him without reservation.

Great Legal Adviser/Counsel
Matthew, spent his valuable time in analyzing all the documents and questions which I had sent to him. Given me the legal options after considering all scenarios very carefully. He answered all the questions which I asked and provided me the answers from the law. Now I'm not confused about my husband case, hired him and the outcome was beyond gratitude... I highly recommend Matthew as a lawyer for your cases. You will be well taken care of...
