  • I have been very pleased!

    Jason Haire

  • Thank you again for all your hard work on our behalf.

    “Malinda and I want to thank you for representing us in the law suit. You were very kind and patient as you led us through the legal process. Thank you again for all your hard work on our behalf. We know we will be pleased with our new roof.”

    Leslie and Malinda Liles

  • Thanks very much to D&B for the good work!

    “Some years ago a smart boss told me that an employee delivers one of two things in the work-world: Results or Excuses, and there is nothing in between. I think he's right. D&B delivered Results. These results had a direct and significant monetary impact on me and my family, and I'm grateful that things worked out. I particularly enjoyed participating in the Mediation process - - it was good to "see behind the curtain" - and I appreciated D&B being firm-but-fair throughout this process.”

    Dale Hejnal

    L. Brewer

  • Thank you for being the light at the end of a long tunnel.

    “Thank you, on a personal level what this insurance company did to me was unbelievable and your firm has been the light at the end of a long tunnel. My parents always taught me to fight for what’s right, but after a divorce that nearly cost me my life, cancer, I just didn’t have it in me to keep going. Because of your work and persistence we can at least put the house back to being livable. My mom always told me, god knows the heart. You have good one sir. Again thank you for riding this out with me. I don’t ever write notes like this but this is very deserving.”

    Kenneth Wilinski

  • We are very thankful that we found your firm!

    “Without your help, I don't think the insurance company would have come to the table to settle our claim. We had pretty much exhausted all of our options and felt that we could not go forward without legal assistance and help. We are very thankful that we found your firm. James Willis was our assigned lawyer. He was fantastic. He kept us informed. He was tough on the insurance company. He represented our claim with the utmost honesty and integrity. He was above reproach. Mr. Willis was by far the best lawyer that we could have asked for. We are eternally grateful to Mr. Willis and Daly & Black. Thanks again. Daly & Black rocks!”

They prepared me and guided me through the legal process thoroughly. Their entire team was professional, well-prepared and I had complete confidence in their abilities to present my case. I highly recommend Daly & Black and would definitely use them for any insurance claim in the future!”

    Patrice Sauter

  • Daly and Black was absolutely wonderful and got the insurance company to right a wrong and pay up.

    Terry Zimmerman

  • I am very happy with your services!

    “I certainly will have your firm in my mind when a similar need occurs whether it be us, family members, friends or acquaintances. It was by accident that I came to know about your firm. In fact I had given up with this case until we found you. I am very happy with your services”

    K. R. Ramakrishnan
