  • They were always pleasant and kind.

    “David Bergen worked on our case regarding our concrete roof. He took his time explaining to us how everything will work. Cindy Garrett also worked with us. When we had a situation with our mortgage company after the settlement, they stepped in with no hesitation. We like the fact when we call on David or Cindy anytime they were always pleasant and kind. Thank you both, The Adams family”

    Michael Marsh

  • 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

  • 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!!”

    Gary Reed

  • Great service!!

    “The team at Daly & Black was able to secure a 6 figure settlement for the roof of our hotel property after the previous firm we hired botched everything. I came across their firm and held little hopes at the time. As they took on the case, I was quickly impressed with the knowledge of the staff, the quick responses, and personal attention. I cannot thank the team at Daly & Black enough for all of their help!! Don't think twice about hiring these guys, they do a great job and truly look out for your interests.”

    Manu

  • Daly and Black is the law team to retain if an insurance company denied or underpaid your claim!

    “As a recent client of Daly and Black, I was impressed by the quality of research and presentation of Rick Daly and John Black. 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!”
