Your Advocate On All Insurance Claims Fight Back With Daly & Black

David Bergenundefined

Attorney

Email: dbergen@dalyblack.com

David is a skilled and aggressive courtroom lawyer. His first party practice focuses on representing policy holders in state and federal courts across Texas who have been wrongfully underpaid or denied policy benefits in bad faith by their insurance carrier.

David says that what he finds most rewarding about his practice is fighting for Texans who have been intentionally or recklessly taken advantage of by their insurance carrier. Often times this occurs when his clients are at their most vulnerable following a catastrophe.

David has also handled a variety of complex commercial disputes, including: breach of contract claims, Deceptive Trade Practice Act claims, ERISA claims, fraud claims, tortious interference claims, partnership and corporate disputes, and FLSA collective actions.

David’s approach to litigation is heavily influenced by his background as a former high school English teacher in the impoverished and rural Mississippi Delta region with Teach For America and the three years he spent in law school clerking for Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald of the Hawaii Supreme Court and famed trial attorneys Rusty Hardin and Michael Jay Green. Prior to joining Daly & Black, David worked for a complex commercial boutique law firm in Houston.

David hails from the Hawaiian island of Oahu. In his spare time, David enjoys numerous water sports, traveling, and coaching with Forge For Families, a faith-based charity organization located in Houston’s Fifth Ward.

  • 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!”

    “I would highly recommend Daly and Black PC!! Specifically I would like to thank Mr. James Willis and his team. They were very helpful prompt and professional in helping correct a right from wrong and getting them to pay. Too often and so sad that these insurance companies expect their payment monthly but are unwilling to do the right thing when it comes time. I would definitely use this firm again and I appreciate them!!”
