  • 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

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!!”

  • Excellent guidance and knowledge achieving my personal goal for resolution.

    “London Crounse oversaw my case with my home insurance company, providing excellent guidance and knowledge achieving my personal goal for resolution. Highly recommend Daly & Black/London Crounse.”

    Leslie Oines

  • 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.”
