After going through 3 lawyers, and months on end of refusing to bend over to a system that was looking to make me a statistic, I walked into John's office and new at that moment I had a fighting chance.
John immediately saw holes in the prosecutions offense, and put together a defensive strategy that not only put into question the arresting officers credibility, but left the prosecution no other choice but to reduce the charges they sought to brin against me.
I highly recommend John Campbell to anyone, as he is a juggernaut that stands tall for defendants facing an uphill battle against the weight of our judicial system.
If you find yourself needing a lawyer, hire John E. Campbell.
Every lawyer I have ever encountered is of the mindset to settle or negotiate the outcome of the case. What Mr. Campbell does conduct research into applicable law and relevant case law; something I have never seen except in a fictional story on when large amounts of money was available.
He also has a mixed blue collar/white collar background blended with plain common sense.
He is expensive, however, if you budget yourself, it is affordable and an outstanding value. And although I was paying by the hour, he did seem to under-bill me.
I did lose my case but not because of Mr. Campbell.
I found myself on the employee side of an intricate and complicated employment dispute. John made an excellent effort. In hindsight, I should have devoted more effort and organizing and double checking things. Even if you have the best lawyer you still need to keep on top of your case. And in hindsight I should not have gotten myself in the position I did in the first place.
In the end I learned it is best to avoid being in a situation where you ever need a lawyer; especially if you are a middle class individual person. It is always better to NOT have the problem to begin with rather than deal with it.
We live in a world where the powers that be simply do not care about the average middle class guy.
I learned that the hard way. I now know to never even have even one drink if I plan on driving within twelve hours. I always let people go ahead of me when I drive. I go out of my way to bend over backwards at work. I strive to make as many meaningful relationships as I can with everyone I encounter but without being a pushover.
So god-willing I will never be in a situation where I need a lawyer again, except for a good thing like closing on a house, however, it is still good to know he is out there if needed.
If you are in a situation where you do need a lawyer, especially in a real bind, and are considering Mr. Campbell. by all means, hire him.
