    “These guys are fantastic lawyers (even if one is a former UCLA Bruin football player--I'll overlook that as a USC grad). When disaster strikes, that's who I refer my clients to. Love them!”

    “Daly & Black provides a first class service always. They have never let my company down. And they have never lost on any of the claims that I have sent them. I have known them for years. The addition of London Crounse, has only made them that much more efficient. His great client service skills, again great addition to the team.”

    Michael Garrison

  • 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”

  • The Daly & Black team immediately got to work to obtain the coverage we need to restore our property.

    “I am so thankful to have the team of attorneys at Daly & Black on our side in the fight against the insurance company. They immediately got to work to obtain the coverage we need to restore our property. I can finally rest easy because I know I have a law firm who can take care of me.”

  • 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”

    Randy Newman

  • Daly & Black handled all the negotiations successfully speaks for itself.

    “The fact that Daly & Black handled all the negotiations successfully speaks for itself. They did everything, sparing me even from being present at the meetings. Thank you.”

  • I am at a loss for words to express my gratitude other than thank you.

    “I want to thank you for your help in resolving my legal matters with Universal Insurance. I did not know which way to turn to get help in shaking the funds loose. I contacted your firm for help. Daly & Black's Cindy Garrett has been a true reflection of an organization that cares. She is professional, efficient and caring in every way. Cindy was decisive and offered to go beyond the call of duty. She was tough and thorough. I am so grateful to her for all her assistance. I am at a loss for words to express my gratitude other than thank you. I am so appreciative of your firm and especially Cindy Garrett. Her help was priceless and because she cared I can not imagine ever using any other law firm than yours for any future legal requirements.”

  • I feel you carefully determined and then executed the best settlement result possible for my particular situation.

    “Thanks again for your time, assistance, expertise and realistic approach to my case. I feel you carefully determined and then executed the best settlement result possible for my particular situation. In addition, your patience and knowledge in explaining various aspects of this type of case was greatly appreciated. It’s been a pleasure and privilege to work with David Bergen and other members of the Daly and Black team during the resolution of my Allstate claim. All the members of the Daly and Black team assigned to my case have been courteous, professional and efficient. Each person I’ve dealt with has been an outstanding representative for your firm. I am most happy to recommend you and your firm to any of my friends and family.”

  • 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

  • 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

    “James was a pleasure to work with at Daly & Black. He won't back down when the crooked insurance companies try to deny roof claims. His hard work and dedication helped us to win our roof case.”

  • 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.”
