About Me

After graduating from the University of Buffalo Law School, Mr. Campbell began his career as an insurance defense attorney. He has also served as a prosecutor and was elected to two terms as a Town Justice.


Since 1995, he has devoted his practice to representing clients seriously injured by the negligence of others.   


Mr. Campbell has obtained numerous million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients throughout Western New York.  Most recently, he obtained a verdict of $1.25 million dollars for a Dunkirk woman who was injured when a private ambulance service attempted to move her from her home to an ambulance without following proper procedures and using appropriate equipment.  The verdict came after a two-week trial before a jury in Mayville and was the highest verdict in a personal injury case in Chautauqua County in 2014.


Mr. Campbell also helped a widow and her daughters obtain $1.9 million dollars after they lost their husband and father in a one car accident.  The responsible insurance carrier initially took the position that there was only 100,000 dollars in available coverage, but Campbell was able to obtain evidence that the defendant driver was engaged in business pursuits at the time of the accident, thereby finding over a million dollars in additional coverage for the family. 


Mr. Campbell also obtained two million dollars for a 52-year-old millwright who sustained back injuries after being struck by a piece of fallen scaffolding. 


In 2010, he obtained a verdict of $4.1 million dollars from a Buffalo jury for a 49-year-old man who sustained a neck and back injury while undergoing surgery to donate a kidney to his mother.  


 


Mr. Campbell is a director of The Boys and Girls Club of Eden, Inc. and an elected member of the Eden Central School Board.
