I was in a collision in January 2020. I have a 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited 1.6T. The insurance company of the driver that hit my vehicle was difficult to work with every step of the way. They offered me $1000 DV on a damage claim of over $13000. My vehicle at the time of the collision had about 1500 miles on it and I only had it a month & 5 days!! I contacted Mr. W**** regarding my Diminished Value claim. He was very responsive and helped me every step of the way as well as answered any questions I had. He has extensive knowledge regarding NC Diminished value laws & knew a lot about how to communicate with insurance companies & their appraisers. After submitting the documentation he provided and getting the insurance company in touch with him directly they settled my DV claim for more than 6 times the amount they originally offered. I would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone who is filing a diminished value claim because once the insurance company found out I had someone with his experience in my corner they came to an agreement fairly quickly. His willingness to help me with this difficult situation and his professionalism in getting my claim resolved is greatly appreciated. I am satisfied with the outcome of my claim and I know that other's will be too. Don't fight the insurance company alone when you don't have to and DO NOT settle with them before contacting Mr. W**** with CSI-NC.

Danny was extremely communicative and responsive in handling my DV claim and settlement. I was especially impressed by his interpersonal knowledge of the other appraisers and insurance company representatives in NC, since he has so much experience negotiating with all of these people.  Danny took over my claim when another appraiser I had hired stopped responding. When I was represented by that previous appraiser, the insurance company and their appraiser were insistent on a $0 DV assessment and kept talking about how we would probably need an umpire. After one short email from Danny as my new representative, the insurance company's appraiser immediately replied back with a great settlement offer! With Danny's reputation and knowing the other players in the industry, he is in a great position to be able to get you a large settlement quickly, without the drawn out back-and-forth nonsense that the insurance companies tend to get into. Thanks Danny!

I would HIGHLY recommend Danny to anyone who is looking to file a claim. My daughter was in a car accident in NC, where she was hit from behind when she was stopped in traffic. Her Mazda CX-5 had less than 3000 miles and the at-fault driver's insurance company was offering little to none for the diminished value of her new car. After doing research, Danny was someone I knew I could trust to advocate for our family. Danny was able to get me 8X the amount the insurance company was initially willing to pay for the diminished value! He was very knowledgeable about NC law and was a pleasure to work with!

Words cannot express how impressed I am with Danny’s knowledge and service of the insurance industry. He successfully help me negotiate a DV settlement with State Farm over a month’s time. He provided an initial appraisal, coached me on how to respond to the adjuster, and always answered every text, call, or email. I would recommend Danny to anyone, and I look forward to the first referral I send to him. Thank you for everything Danny!

I had the misfortune of having my classic 88 Monte’ Carlo ss damaged by a careless driver. ( not my fault) I then had the opportunity to be locked in mortal conflict with my insurance company (The one that was I able to get because I am a veteran ) They immediately called it a total loss and tried to pay me ½ the value of my car using CCCI who have had class action suits against them ******************************************************************  I sent my insurance company many comps and similar valuations which were ignored. I contacted the insurance commissioner and they told me I have the “right to appraisal “ I then contacted Mr. W**** who did a valuation on my classic car that was more in line with the truth He then proceeded to “educate" the insurance company that their “policy” was not in line with the” Law” even providing the statute of NC insurance law that explains the appraisal clause. He went to bat for me and with his detailed report and impeccable credentials the insurance company had no choice but to agree to his valuation. This resulted in an increase in value of 45% over what the insurance company was trying to force on me. My W**** was well worth the money I paid him for his services and was courteous, efficient and exhibited a High level of attention to detail. I heartily endorse his services to anyone facing an unfair insurance valuation.

Danny is amazing. I was involved in an accident last fall that resulted in ~$11,000 worth of damage to my car. The insurance company initially made a very low offer for my diminished value claim, so I hired Danny to assist. He is simply the best. When I contacted him, he immediately took an interest in my case and went above and beyond to get a fair settlement for me. He is very professional and treats his clients like family. He knows the ins and outs of the law and he isn't intimidated by the insurance companies. In the end, he reached a settlement that was 5 times greater than the insurance company's original offer. I know that this could not have been done without Danny. If you are thinking about hiring him, don't even hesitate - his services are 110% worth it! THANK YOU, DANNY
