  • 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”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

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.”

  • “Tough as nails, with a heart of gold”

    “I can't begin to express my sincere appreciation for the superior legal work Mr. James Willis did on my family's behalf. I have had the great pleasure to have worked with Houston’s finest attorneys but James Willis is truly the best, simply brilliant. He’s everything you would expect and need in an advocate. His legal expertise and professionalism went above and beyond my expectations throughout the entirety of our case. It was a stressful and perplexing situation, yet James was always there for us. He made the time, no matter what, to ensure all our questions were answered thoroughly and readily informed us of the best option to take. If it weren’t for Mr. Willis’ expert analytical skills and acute negotiation skills, the matter wouldn’t have been settled as it was. I was completely dazzled by his canny communication skills and the fierce passion which he displayed during the mediation. Toughest negotiator I've seen in action. I've been in multiple mediations with counsel from Houston’s most prominent law firms, they simply do not compare. He fought extremely hard for us and I am very pleased with the outcome. We received more than I expected and was astonished by his integrity and altruism to ensure my family was made whole. He is truly a blessing and I can not thank him enough for all the care and concern he has shown us; working tirelessly to ensure that the law worked in our favor. We are eternally grateful for his service and highly recommend Mr. James Willis to anyone seeking an advocate who’s as “Tough as nails, with a heart of gold””
