  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • When Mr. Daly got involved, things happened!

    “When Mr. Daly got involved, things happened. I will be over joyed once I receive my settlement check so I can finally get my roof replaced.”

    Philip Jenkins

  • 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!”

    Patricia Brown

  • Thanks very much to D&B for the good work!

    “Some years ago a smart boss told me that an employee delivers one of two things in the work-world: Results or Excuses, and there is nothing in between. I think he's right. D&B delivered Results. These results had a direct and significant monetary impact on me and my family, and I'm grateful that things worked out. I particularly enjoyed participating in the Mediation process - - it was good to "see behind the curtain" - and I appreciated D&B being firm-but-fair throughout this process.”

  • 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”

  • When disaster strikes, that's who I refer my clients to. Love them!

    “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!”
