by Our Clients

  • 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!”

  • 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

  • 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!”

  • 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.”
