Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
