  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • “Tough as nails, with a heart of gold”

    “I can't begin to express my sincere appreciation for the superior legal work Mr. James Willis did on my family's behalf. I have had the great pleasure to have worked with Houston’s finest attorneys but James Willis is truly the best, simply brilliant. He’s everything you would expect and need in an advocate. His legal expertise and professionalism went above and beyond my expectations throughout the entirety of our case. It was a stressful and perplexing situation, yet James was always there for us. He made the time, no matter what, to ensure all our questions were answered thoroughly and readily informed us of the best option to take. If it weren’t for Mr. Willis’ expert analytical skills and acute negotiation skills, the matter wouldn’t have been settled as it was. I was completely dazzled by his canny communication skills and the fierce passion which he displayed during the mediation. Toughest negotiator I've seen in action. I've been in multiple mediations with counsel from Houston’s most prominent law firms, they simply do not compare. He fought extremely hard for us and I am very pleased with the outcome. We received more than I expected and was astonished by his integrity and altruism to ensure my family was made whole. He is truly a blessing and I can not thank him enough for all the care and concern he has shown us; working tirelessly to ensure that the law worked in our favor. We are eternally grateful for his service and highly recommend Mr. James Willis to anyone seeking an advocate who’s as “Tough as nails, with a heart of gold””

    “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 !

    “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.”

  • 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.”

    Brian and Sheila Gibbs

  • 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

  • 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”
