vCard: Sean Delaney
About Attorney Sean Delaney
Sean primarily handles the operational and administrative functions of Hatch, Little & Bunn, LLP, and handles select legal matters on a referral basis.
Practicing over twenty years, Sean carries the willingness to try anything, anywhere. As first-chair, Sean has tried contested matters in Superior Court (including civil and criminal matters tried to jury verdict), U.S. District Court, State District Court, Magistrates Court, the N.C. Court of Appeals, local government boards, North Carolina government agencies, Federal Bankruptcy Court, and U.S. Army courts-martial. Though willing to go to trial, wisdom drawn from these experiences informs him that in nearly every case, a good settlement beats a great trial.
In addition to his trial practice, Sean advises small businesses through every step and controversy, from formation to dissolution.
Beyond his civilian practice, Sean served 28 years as a JAGC officer with the U.S. Army Reserves prior to retiring in 2021. Sean deployed to the Middle East, dual-hatted as BJA and Senior Trial Counsel for a Brigade and Sustainment Command, respectively, during the “Surge”. He subsequently deployed in 2016-2017 as the SJA for the 2-star Special Operations Task Force leading the fight against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
Sean and his wife have two daughters and a collie. If looking for Sean on Friday evenings in the fall, you will find him officiating high school football.
