Edward C. Delaney, Esq
North Brunswick and South Brunswick
Central New Jersey Lawyers
Edward Delaney, Esq. attended the University of Maryland, where he majored
in political science. After taking his degree from Maryland, he attended Quinnipiac
School of Law, where he received a Juris Doctorate degree in 1987. He began
is legal career with a small firm in East Brunswick, where he focused on real
estate, matrimonial law and municipal court appearances.
Mr. Delaney opened his own practice in North Brunswick in 1995, where he continued
in his practice areas. After joining forces with Ms. Murphy in 2002, they
moved their partnership to Kendall Park.
Mr. Delaney has been practicing real estate and matrimonial law since he began
his career some 21 years ago, and as such is an expert in both fields. He
can assist any client with any matter concerning matrimonial law, and real
estate, including purchases, sales, short sales, deed transfers, foreclosures
and partitions. He has appeared hundreds of times in municipal court, including
DWI, and knows the ins and outs of that system very well.
Mr. Delaney's philosophy toward the representation of his clients is to present,
in plain English, the legal options available to his clients, which allows
the client to make an informed and educated decision for themselves. Mr. Delaney
believes that his clients are intelligent and capable of making their own
decisions, provided that the necessary information has been presented to them,
and that his role is literally one of counselor, not that of decision maker.
This approach allows for collaboration between Mr. Delaney and his clients,
which has resulted in a loyal and trusting long-term clientele.

fees, but resolved, to the benefit of her clients, at the minimum cost possible.
