  • 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.”

  • I am at a loss for words to express my gratitude other than thank you.

    “I want to thank you for your help in resolving my legal matters with Universal Insurance. I did not know which way to turn to get help in shaking the funds loose. I contacted your firm for help. Daly & Black's Cindy Garrett has been a true reflection of an organization that cares. She is professional, efficient and caring in every way. Cindy was decisive and offered to go beyond the call of duty. She was tough and thorough. I am so grateful to her for all her assistance. I am at a loss for words to express my gratitude other than thank you. I am so appreciative of your firm and especially Cindy Garrett. Her help was priceless and because she cared I can not imagine ever using any other law firm than yours for any future legal requirements.”
