“I am familiar with the Lead Counsel, Caddell & Chapman [Cory Fein’s former firm], and consider the attorneys at that firm to be among the finest class action attorneys I have encountered in more than a quarter century of work in this area,” “I know Counsel to be highly ethical attorneys,” and “Lead Counsel, with the assistance of the Court, performed admirably.” Declaration of prominent class-action expert, Professor Geoffrey Miller, filed in In re: Navistar 6.0 L Diesel Engine Products Liability Litigation, No. 1:11-cv-02496 (N.D.

“Having worked closely with Texas Counsel, 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. ~ Jan. 20, 2009 Declaration of Professor Geoffrey Miller (Stuyvesant P.

“You are magic! Hi Cory, I finally received my check yesterday!!! You have the magic touch! Thanks so much for everything — you made a difficult situation manageable. Take care and best wishes. Enjoy your holidays!” Kim M., class member in auto-related class action.
Hi Cory, thank you for this good news, and thank you for listening to us and then taking on our cause. I know that you and your colleagues put forth a lot of effort on this case (over 6 million pages from Ford!) and I hope that it has proven to be worth your time. Hopefully, Judge Kennelly will approve the settlement and we can all move on to new concerns. Again, thank you, Kathy, and everyone at your firm for your patience and assistance and for this very good outcome. ~ Sue Dewar, CFO, Custom Underground, Inc., November 12, 2012
Cory, thanks for your work on this. It delights me to make Ford pay at least something to the thousands of us who trusted them enough to spend thousands of dollars on trucks they knew they misrepresented to us as consumers. It may hurt them just enough to consider their business model before they do this deliberately another time . . . My experience with your firm has been 100% positive and I appreciate your attention to all my little details. ~ Georjean Vogt, November 12, 2012
“My company is a leading provider of finishing services to major domestic and international mills that manufacture tubular goods for the oilfield and chemical plant industries. When my company was in its earlier stages, a large competitor tried to put us out of business by making false allegations about the technology we used and disparaging me and my company to clients and potential clients. I hired Caddell & Chapman to represent me. Mike Caddell and Cory Fein at Caddell & Chapman aggressively litigated my case and we ended up with a great result. I worked closely with the lawyers at Caddell & Chapman throughout the litigation. I saw first-hand their excellent work and was extremely satisfied with the excellent results they obtained. I give them my highest recommendation.” ~ David Siverling, President, OCTG, LLP
Mr. Fein, your letter to me touched my heart. The law firm of Caddell & Chapman is fortunate to have a man of your compassion working in the firm. The letter from Ford Motor Co. telling me a fire caused by the Speed Deactivation Switch would disable the braking system was certainly true. My wife had just enough time from the start of the fire to hit the brake one time just before she began to spin out of control. My wife was injured for life. I hope Ford Motor Co. can live with [its] decision knowing what happened. Thank you and [Caddell & Chapman] for all of your kindness and help. God will bless you. ~ Rev. R.E. and Carroll Pedigo
“Congratulations on your efforts for settlement on [Ford Ambulance]. I can tell you that these vehicles are a nightmare, and it is nice to know that the manufacturer is being held appropriately accountable. Nice job, and thanks again for your help.” ~ Ken Rounds, August 5, 2009
” . . . thank you very much for your response. It is not very often that prompt response, attentiveness to the problem, representation/protection of a client up is at the level you’re providing. Outstanding work! I sincerely appreciate it. ~ Brian T. Witek, ADVANCE AMBULANCE
