Review Thomas Campbell

About Me

Our firm handles complex individual cases, class action cases and mass actions for individuals and businesses victimized by unfair and deceptive business practices, fraud, false advertising, harmful pharmaceuticals, systemic employment discrimination or catastrophic personal injury. Sometimes the best service we can provide is connecting you with the right specialist.

Campbell Law focuses on class action (one or a few people representing a larger group), mass action cases (dozens to hundreds of individuals coming together as plaintiffs in one case), and individual cases in which the plaintiff has suffered significant financial losses. 


Martindale Hubbell awarded Campbell Law and its principal, Thomas F. Campbell, its highest rating: “AV.” The AV rating signifies that lawyers and judges rate the firm’s legal ability as “preeminent” and that work meets the highest ethical standards. Campbell was honored with inclusion in Best Lawyers in America for Commercial Litigation and Litigation - Real Estate based upon reviews by peers who know his abilities. It is especially unusual for plaintiff lawyers from smaller firms to obtain this honor. 

Taylor Powell has been recognized by his peers as an "Alabama Super Lawyer - Rising Star" for four years running. Taylor won the trial advocacy competition at his law school.

Keiron McGowin brings his critical eye from a prosecutor's background to the firms extensive business fraud practice. He loves exposing corruption.

Campbell has tried dozens of matters to a successful conclusion from teacher tenure cases to class actions. Campbell has moved temporarily to Florida and California to try long, complex class/representative actions or multi -party cases or to conduct months of complex discovery.
