  • When disaster strikes, that's who I refer my clients to. Love them!

    “These guys are fantastic lawyers (even if one is a former UCLA Bruin football player--I'll overlook that as a USC grad). When disaster strikes, that's who I refer my clients to. Love them!”

  • Very Satisfied!

    “I was very satisfied with the services provided.”

  • We’ll gladly recommend you to others!

    “THANK YOU all very much for your professional dedication that got us to the right and just conclusion. We can now get our badly damaged and dilapidated roof replaced, which will give us immense piece of mind, particularly in the current weather situation. We cannot thank you all enough for standing up for our rights and, through appropriate legal processes, have provided us with what we deserve, given all the years we have paid for the safety net of what we believed to be good insurance. We will now proceed with all haste to get our first rate contractor engaged to get our dilapidated roof replaced. Again, we thank you all at Daly Black for defending our very justified claim for storm damage that has weakened the weather resistance of our greatest, and most emotionally necessity – a good and secure home that protects us from the harsh environment we live in. We’ll gladly recommend you to others, if and when they face the arrogance of unscrupulous insurance companies.”

  • I am very happy with my experience with Daly & Black. I would highly recommend them.

    “I am very happy with my experience with Daly & Black. I would highly recommend them. I had difficulty with my homeowners insurance company denying a valid roof claim. Homes all around me were getting new roofs from a recent hail storm, yet my insurance company (Safeco / Liberty Mutual) kept using excuses to deny the claim. Daly & Black filed a lawsuit on my behalf and covered all of the associated expenses. I hope to not be in need of filling another lawsuit again, but if I did they would be my first phone call”

    Randy Newman

  • I cannot express enough my appreciation for the effort you and your group put into getting this suit settled!

    “I cannot express enough my appreciation for the effort you and your group put into getting this suit settled! Truthfully I had just about given up hope but I always had faith that you were working for me and you were true to your word that a favorable settlement would come my way ! Thank you again and a really good word for Cindy Garrett- she is a jewel you need to hold on to!”

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

    “Daly and Black is the best law firm I have dealt with and I would use again.”

    Terry Zimmerman

  • They got the coverage from our insurer we needed for our full roof replacement.

    “Daly & Black were recommended to us by our roofing company when our homeowner's insurance refused to cover the hail damage to our roof. We have found London Crounse and Jonathan Sar to be very professional and efficient. All staff seemed to work well with the attorneys. They got the coverage from our insurer we needed for our full roof replacement.”

    Richard Simpson

  • I would highly recommend Daly and Black PC!!

    “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!!”

  • Fortunately for us, friends put us in touch with Daly & Black and we ended up in the capable hands of James Willis.

    “When our home was destroyed, we honestly thought the situation couldn't get any worse. Until we started dealing with our insurance carrier. Fortunately for us, friends put us in touch with Daly & Black and we ended up in the capable hands of James Willis. James and his team were truly a god-send. James walked with us through every part of the process, kept us well updated and informed, guided our decisions and made sure there were no surprises along the way. His wise counsel was invaluable. We found James to be the perfect combination of an approachable, down to earth partner who was driven and relentless as our champion. We simply couldn't imagine going through this without him. Thank You Daly & Black for making us feel like your most important client.”
