Attorney John P. Daly, Jr., is a partner with Golitko & Daly law firm, which has law offices in Kokomo, Indianapolis and Bloomington, Indiana. A top-rated trial lawyer with more than 33 years of total legal experience, Mr. Daly provides exceptional counsel and support to clients throughout his region who have legal needs involving any of the following:

Over the course of his legal career, Mr. Daly has gained a reputation as an authority in construction law, and he holds his certification as an OSHA-authorized construction safety trainer.

A compassionate attorney, Mr. Daly understands the adverse effects an injury can have on construction workers and their families, particularly with regard to lost income coupled with considerable medical expenses. In light of this, he works hard to help his plaintiff injury clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation they deserve so that they can support themselves and their families when they can no longer work.
