Alan H.W. Shiff I think he’s got a national reputation he’s competent. Mr. Caddell appeared before the Court and my recollection is that he comported himself very well.

~United States Bankruptcy Judge Alan H.W. Shiff, Bridgeport, Connecticut

Steven Mackey  Mr. Caddell is more than competent, he is a pugnacious bulldog and where there are grounds to make a recovery he usually does.  Where the fire is the hottest people tend to get scorched once in a while, and Mr. Caddell takes cases where the fire is as hot as it gets. . .

Geoff Miller  Having worked closely with [Caddell & Chapman], I can also attest that they are among the finest class action attorneys I have been privileged to know during my two decades of experience in this field of law.  They not only possess excellent analytical and rhetorical skills, but—more importantly—displayed remarkable qualities of judgment, imagination and persistence.
