The first thing to do is make sure the leaks are taken care of. Check the damaged area to see if the drywall is crumbling. If all the drywall is solid and the leaks are taken care of, re-attach the loose drywall to the studs ( I prefer drywall screws). Then start tapping and mudding. Good luck.

And if your going to paint, make sure you use a sealer first like Kilz or 3bin. Otherwise those leaks will show back through your paint.
Too take that suggetion and save some money, demo the old stuff yourself, make sure the leaks are fixed, and then hire some guys to do it. It is one of the lesser cost things, but if done poorly IT WILL ALWAYS LOOK POOR. Process of elimanation. Good luck.
