Achieving Favorable Results in Complex Commercial and Business Litigation

Daniel Coker’s reputation was built on success in complex commercial litigation. Our firm’s founding partner, Joe H. Daniel, prosecuted commercial cases on both sides of the aisle involving issues ranging from banking to business interruption when the “silk stocking” firms of the time considered litigation unseemly.  By the 1960s, Mr. Daniel  was known for his skill in litigating complex commercial, construction, banking, and bonding disputes. 

Today, Daniel Coker attorneys strive to uphold Mr. Daniel’s values of the highest legal ethics, hard work, disciplined-but-creative planning, and adaptive execution in everything they do—and it shows in the results that we have consistently been able to achieve for our firm’s clients.
