Hear It From Our Clients

“Cal is one of the brightest, hardest working, most honorable and most successful problem solvers and attorneys I have ever worked with. When he tells you something, you can count on it, whether it is good news or bad news. When I had the most sensitive challenges facing the company, I could always call on Cal, day, night or weekend. In making that call, I knew I was talking to someone who would give the best advice and exercise the best judgment with the information I shared.”

– Mark Dancy President, WasteZero, Inc.

“I took a complicated real estate title problem to several other law firms over two years. No one could figure out how to solve it. Then I met Cal Cunningham and four months later, it was all resolved in my favor. I have already hired him to help with another major business challenge – and am counting on him now as part of my team in future decisions too.”

– Fahad Ahmed President, Farzana Investment, LLC

“Cal is hardworking, responsive, creative and resourceful when it comes to advancing our real estate interests. When the City of Durham condemned some of our family land, his work led to a payment 2½ times higher than their highest offer. When a developer made an offer to purchase a valuable tract, Cal made sure the terms were right. Did I mention that he seems to know everyone in North Carolina? In my business experience, his ability to find the right resource in each situation is unparalleled.”

– Kathryn Booth Butler Manager, J.E. Booth Farms, LLC

“I had the ideas and even had the first two patents. What I didn’t have was a business; that is, until I met Cal. He put it together, wrote the pitch deck, the offering documents and helped us land our first seed investment. Overnight, he became the critical lynchpin in my team, and now we’ve got a real shot at disrupting the building products market.”
