Firm History

Building Trust Since 1927

The year is 1927. Calvin Coolidge is in the White House. Charles Lindbergh flew The Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic nonstop. Henry Ford unveiled the Model A. Hollywood produced The Jazz Singer, the first “talkie” that ended the silent film era. And the first transatlantic telephone call was placed between New York and London.

In the midst of all this early 20th-century progress, John A. Dailey, Jr. — along with his brother Edward (who joined in 1935) and his cousin Thomas, a decorated U.S. Naval Officer (Joined in 1945 after tours of duty in WW2 in the European and Pacific War Zones). Dailey and Dailey Law Firm in Burlington, Iowa, now Dailey Law Firm, PC saw the law as a calling to use the tools of society in dogged pursuit of your legal goals and challenges. It was and continues to be a relentless and passionate quest for justice and to fulfill our promise to you and all our clients to right the wrongs and seek your compensation for injury or your acquittal of all criminal charges.
