  • 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.”

    Brian Dyer

  • 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!”

  • 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”

  • Daly & Black continued to fight long after most other law firms would have given up. They continued to fight and won for us.

    “We had given up as our insurance company, Liberty Mutual, had refused its obligation. Daly & Black continued to fight long after most other law firms would have given up. They continued to fight and won for us. Everyone at Daly & Black was professional, informed and hard-working. Thank you for the many, many hours you spent on our behalf!”

  • Due to our commercial tenants, we needed a fast, reliable legal team. Daly & Black exceeded our expectations.

    “After our building was damaged by hail causing water intrusion and interior damage, our insurance claim was denied while other buildings in the area were getting full roof replacements. I called London Crounse at Daly & Black who quickly reviewed and agreed to take our case. Due to our commercial tenants, we needed a fast, reliable legal team. Daly & Black exceeded our expectations. London and the large loss team settled our case within months. Thanks to their hard-work, we were fully compensated.”
