  • 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.”

  • 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.”
