About me

Attorney Clayton D. Campbell graduated with honors from the Oak Brook College of Law in 2002. He spent the first four years of his legal career working for two Bakersfield law firms handling various civil and administrative matters.


In 2007 he opened his own law practice, the Campbell Law Firm, and practiced primarily criminal defense law in Kern County before forming Campbell Whitten, PC, with his long time friend and fellow criminal defense attorney Jesse Whitten in December of 2012. Clayton has developed a rapport with local prosecutors and a reputation among judges, defense attorneys, and prosecutors as a skilled trial lawyer.



Clayton is an active member of the California bar, the Wisconsin bar, and the Kern County Bar Association. He is involved in various online legal communities including America's DUI and DWI Attorneys, National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, and Bakersfield Business Professionals.
