Daly Jr. serves Indianapolis, Indiana, and the surrounding area from the law office of Golitko & Daly, P.C. With over three-and-a-half-decades of experience, there is hardly any case that can catch him off guard, and with his succinct communication to his clients and top-tier advocacy, he exhausts every avenue and explores every angle to get his clients the compensation they deserve.

An OSHA-certified construction safety trainer, Mr. Daly has hands-on experience with workplace safety, often working with construction unions to train employees on the same.
