An Attorney with Integrity
Referral for David Daggett I would like to say one word comes to mind when you think of David. The word is Ethical. I have know David both personally and professionally for over 10 years. David is the person that listens. He listens with full attentiveness and most importantly an open mind with out pre-judging. Recently he gave me his thoughts on a copyright infringement case. Even though this is not David’s core area of expertise, he jumped right in and did a fair amount of research on my case and advised me well. There are not a lot of attorneys in this wrold that I feel have ethics and a core foundation. David Daggett is one of those and I highly reccomend that if your looking for a person who will put you first, you look no further.

Excellent Service from Professional Lawyers and Team!
I give the firm of Daggett Shuler Attys. the highest of recommendations! Anyone needing professional lawyers in the areas of personal injury, workers compensation, social security and other areas that this team specializes in can rest assured that this is a team you can count on. My situation personally was with my husband dealing with a workers comp. injury. The team at Daggett Shuler were top notch! They were prompt in returning calls, patient with any questions we had and carried us through the entire process. Peace of mind is priceless and from the moment we meet for our first consultation we knew we had made the right decision. I will highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of a professional, fair and highly skilled team.

My Journey
I was involved in a head-on collision in 2005. After I realized how bad I was hurt, I knew that I needed a lawyer to represent me. I talked with over 8-10 different lawyers but I chose David Daggett to represent me and so thankful that I did. David Daggett is someone that is down-to-earth and really cares about his clients. He worked hard for everthing that I was entitled to and I was completely satisfied with the outcome. I was always informed of any new issues with my case. I was able to build a true friendship with David that will last forever. I found a trust worthiness in him that let me confide him him exactly how i was feeling and if I was worried about something, I knew that I could pick up the phone and call him and he would always assure me that things would be ok. That is one reason that I would reccomend David Daggett to anyone. It's hard to find that relationship with lawyers. My wreck was a wake-up call for me to realize not to take life for granted because we are not promised tommorrow. It was something that I will never forget but without David's help---I wouldn't be where I am today. Please, if you need a lawyer, I can assure you there is no one that will work harder for you and represent you to the fullest than David Daggett.
