A caring and kind and knowledgeable Attorney
My husband was falsely accused of a crime. We needed an attorney badly. Ms Dell was recommended to us. We didn't even have all the money that we needed to pay her and she let us pay her so much money whenever we got any extra. She never once asked about her money it was never an issue. I was very very thankful for that! She worked tirelessly, she knew what she needed and what would get the charges against my husband dropped. She worked very well with me so that she could help me help him. Well on September 22nd 2022, my husband was released. She made it a point to let me know everything that was going on and she would even go to the jail and visit my husband to let him know. She knew what she needed to do and she did it!! Hallelujah! She has decades of experience. She's very easy to talk to she's very caring and she's very kind. I would recommend her to anyone who's looking for an honest hard-working criminal defense attorney. She is very very competent and she knows all the ins and outs a lot of the people in the district attorney's office already know her from previous experiences with her. I thank God that we went to her. I will forever be grateful. As I said and I will say it again if you're ever in need of a good attorney a criminal attorney or whatever your situation may be I would highly highly suggest that you didn't contact with Ms Dell. She was a blessing to us. Honestly you didn't know what we were going to do. Thank God she knew what she needed to do. Again Ms Dell I want to thank you for all your hard work and this wonderful outcome. I will never forget you.

Highly recommend without hesitation
I can't say enough positive things about how Adrienne handled by case. From initial consultation to hiring process, multiple court dates, to dismissal, I was impressed by her professionalism, knowledge of the Santa Clara system and understanding of my case and situation. I hired her and together we had 3 court appearances and she had 1 on my behalf, leading to a dismissal of the case. Adrienne was responsive by email and in person, and helped answer my questions throughout the process so I could have peace-of-mind. I spoke with several lawyers and went with Adrienne for this case because of her knowledge, professionalism, and demeanor. Highly recommend.

Responsive and Knowledgable
Although I did not hire her due to her schedule just from speaking to her on the phone I can tell she is extremely intelligent and knows what she is doing. Ms. Dell is extremely compassionate and I can tell will fight for you. I needed her for a juvenile court case. Consider yourself lucky if you end up with her.

Powerful and Thorough
Adrienne helped me through a very stressful criminal trial. She was by my side legally and personally for the long number of days it took things to settle. With her amazing help and support I got the complaint dismissed and got back to living my life again. I will always be grateful for her legal support and compassion.

Top Level Attorney
I worked as a Correctional Deputy for over twenty years in Santa Clara. During this time I interacted with Ms Dell and observed her dedication to her work and conscientious approached to all of her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Adrienne Dell was a life saver assisting my son. Her professionalism & knowledge in the court room was excellent. I was impressed by how well known & respected she was in the court system. She is very compassionate about her job. I knew nothing about the court system & she was able to make a horrible experience easier as she walked us through the process. I would highly recommend Adrienne to family & friends if needing an attorney !!

She's the BEST
My daughter was charged with a serious felony. She had no serious problems previously. I hired a well known very expensive attorney who used scare tactics to convince me we needed him. Fortunately, I discovered early on that he was not doing all that he could do to help us. I began calling other attorneys for their opinion and that is how I found Ms Dell. I spoke to her at 9 am and by 4pm she was filing in court to help us with something that had a deadline of that day. I cannot emphasize enough how Ms Dell's professionalism and knowlege of the system, along with her passion helped us at a very crucial time. She isn't cheap, but well worth every penny. You can trust her to get the job done.

Not an expert
She can only get you deals. If you are looking for an in depth attorney you have to find someone else. She did not met my expectations at all and could not get the results i was looking for. She does not give out her cell phone which really makes it odd working with her. You have to call and leave a message at her office only. She also didn’t respond to my emails accordingly. Not a very happy client and cannot recommend her to anyone based on her performance.
