About April

Learn April’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Violent crime
    April Campbell has an extensive background in dealing with violent crime cases. Self-defense and gun rights are an important aspect of her firm. Most recent trial resulted in an acquittal for her client in a self defense case.

  2. Criminal defense
    Many offenses have their own penalty charts. Call Campbell Law to discuss your case.

  3. DUI and DWI
    As a former prosecutor, April Campbell understands better than anyone the limitations of tests for alcohol and drug impairment. She also recognizes that an OVI conviction can impose significant hardships on entire families.

  4. Speeding and traffic ticket
    Before dedicating herself to defending Ohioans against poorly done investigations and overly harsh penalties, April Campbell represented the BMV during hearings on reinstating suspended driver’s licenses and worked on thousands of traffic offenses.

I am a criminal defense and appellate lawyer, handling cases throughout Ohio.  As a former prosecutor, I've handled thousands of cases, from driving offenses to serious felonies -- in hearings, trials, and on appeal.  My most recent work includes arguing before the Supreme Court of Ohio on a First Amendment issue for a second-degree felony; and trying a fifth-degree felony theft case in Southern Ohio.  


Outside of work, I enjoy running Tough Mudders, and cheering on my alma mater: The Ohio State Buckeyes.

April is a rockstar lawyer
I am impressed with the experience and lawyering skill from Ms. Campbell. She is worth every penny that she asks. She made me feel assured thru the entire process with her experience and skill. And I will not hesitate to have her as my lawyer again.

HA - OVI/Possession
April was great in helping me through this whole process. Not only is she knowledgeable and competent in her practice but she also was very caring in how I felt through this whole experience. I was charged with an OVI and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. She got the OVI reduced to a physical control and the possession charge suppressed. She did a great job and I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs someone knowledgeable, competent and emotionally supportive. She is well worth every penny spent!

She faught for my rights and my life!!
Words could never express the gratitude I have for this woman!.... my whole career and life was on the line had I been convicted of this DUI..... April literally saved my life! She was very personable and made me feel like she wasn't just my lawyer, she was my friend! She went over and beyond to challenge every aspect of this charge. So much that the courts were left with no other option but to acquit me of all charges!! It was intrigued watching her in action literally fighting for my rights!! On top of all this, she was very reasonably priced, and offeres payment plan options that are manageable!! .... if you have a DUI , and your looking for a lawyer....don't even waist anymore time or money, Call April Campbell!!

If it’s OVI related- plea bargain with prosecutor/judge upfront
I hired April Campbell as my defense attorney based on a referral to appeal an OVI conviction in Fairfield County. Nine mos later, the lower courts decision was affirmed by Ohio Appeals Court - District 5. (I lost my appeal)Accordingly I can attest to the following regarding April Campbell, Esq. Pros 1. She is a competent defense attorney with experience in appeals court , OVI defense, experience as a former prosecutor, etc. 2. She is somewhat assertive / aggressive in her defense and does a decent job articulating oral arguments. However there is room for improvement in both of these areas. Cons 3. She is not as responsive as an attorney who has been paid thousands of a dollars should be. 60-70% of the time, I had to email and/or text her 2 or more times, before I received a return call or email. This is coupled with a lack of empathy in that she has yet to return my call and provide a debrief of my case since it’s been finalized … a week ago. 4. As a former prosecutor with appeals experience, I don’t believe she was as forthright about my chances of reversing/winning the case. As a former prosecutor she should have insight into the relationship between judges and prosecutors. As was revealed in my case, all judges were literally on the same team with the prosecutor who didn’t address any of the material arguments made by Campbell.. Early on she stated, I had a strong case but she couldn’t guarantee a win. She should have stated, it will take a miracle to reverse or overturn this OVI decision but if it’s worth thousands of dollars to you, I’ll construct some arguments. In sum, I really feel like I’ve been taken for a very expensive ride financially, mentally and emotionally.

Appeals Attorney | May 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"April and I worked on an appeal together. I was trial counsel and she handled the appeal. I did my best to preserve the record for her in the trial court. Oftentimes when I do this appellate attorneys will completely miss the issue or not communicate with me about the case when it gets taken up on appeal. April proactively contacted me about the case, reviewed all of my pleadings, called me back again to discuss the case, and then filed and argued an excellent brief in the Fifth District Court of Appeals. The case was reversed and remanded due to April's hard work. She did a great job on the appeal and got an F4 OVI reversed and reduced to a misdemeanor."
