John F. Campbell, III is an experienced trial attorney at Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. who is dedicated to helping individuals who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of others. John began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney where he successfully prosecuted a multitude of cases ranging from low-level misdemeanors to serious violent felonies. During his tenure with the District Attorney’s Office, he was appointed to the Economic Crimes Bureau where he continued to hone his litigation skills and gained significant investigation experience with respect to sophisticated financial and White-Collar crimes.

After leaving the District Attorney’s office, John joined a prominent medical malpractice firm where he aggressively defended complex medical liability and negligence claims against hospitals, physicians, nursing homes and health care organizations. This position enabled him to receive training directly from medical professionals regarding the proper standard of care. John also gained invaluable experience as outside counsel for a well-known general liability firm directly representing insurance carriers. He has since utilized this specialized training in the prosecution of construction site injuries, motor vehicle collisions, premise liability matters, and catastrophic injuries.

In addition to his zealous and compassionate representation of his clients, John has helped to train the next generation of attorneys as an adjunct professor at The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. In his time off, John spends time with his family and playing golf.

Amazing!
John recently represented me in a criminal defense case in Nassau County. His knowledge of the recently changed procedures within the court made me confident in his ability throughout this arduous process. His guidance with me was superb and worked for me to obtain a most desirable outcome. He genuinely cares for his clients, and the favorable outcome he got for me would certainly have me use him and recommended him to anyone in the future.

Highly Recommended NY Lawyer - John Campbell
I am sending this review for lawfirm of Raiser & Renniff, P.C. with my highest recommendations for John Campbell. John is professional, knowledgable, trustworthy, and most importantly empathetic. Throughout this process, John became a part of our family. He was always very attentive and kind, making himself availible to us anytime day or night. If I needed something, John and his team would respond in a timely manner and were attentive to every detail. I knew that I could always count on him and felt confident that he was doing everything in his power to advocate for myself and my family. From the very first day we spoke to the very end, John was by our side throughout the entire process. I couldn't imagine having anyone else by my side fighting this legal battle and I would hire him again in a heart beat.

Amazing Lawyer
Mr. Campbell has represented me (and my interests) in a multi-jurisdictional matter in both New York and New Jersey. There we two active cases being tried simultaneously, which required a skilled lawyer who not only understood the law, but could afford me the comfort of being adequately represented. After interviewing several attorneys - Mr. Campbell stood out amongst the rest and was immediately hired. His client-attorney mannerism are second-to-none, you can tell he genuinely cares about his clients welfare. You can also quickly tell he was a former Prosecutor, as he is: aggressive, keen to detail and will relentlessly fight for you. I won both cases and while I can say an infinite amount of words to praise his work, seeing is believing. Do yourself a favor – if you ever need to protect your interests in a legal matter - increase your odds of a victory by retaining Mr. Campbell.

Trustworthy, very competent
I hired him for a case he was very respectful, walked me through everything and answered all my questions. I trusted him with every aspect of my case and its outcome and he did everything he could for my case. He got me the best possible outcome that I could have hoped for. He was understanding and explained things to me in a way that I could understand them. I put my trust in him and he did not disappoint me. He fought very hard at every appearance and was always available for my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a remarkable person and attorney on your side.
