I DO NOT recommend Mr. Campbell for cases involving military divorce. I expected an attorney with an in-depth knowledge of divorce law, military law and contract law; however, this proved to not be the case. He charged almost 3 times the amount that my ex-wife paid for her attorney and his staff's poor communication with me resulted in major court problems and expenses. My rating is an honest assessment, be cautious of rating with all 5s as they seem to be over inflated. Overall fair rating!

My family & I hired Mr. Campbell about a year and half ago, as a result of 30 something year old will being left to our deceased father from his mother. He: kept us abreast of everything that was going on in our case;responded quickly to our emails, answering any questions we had..he is also very knowledgeable. This will was over 30 years old, so I'm sure he had to do his homework! A year and a half later, Mr Campbell has won this case for us! We sure are glad we chose him and will turn to him for any legal advice needed in the future. I have already recommended him to my friends & co-workers!

Mr. Campbell was very good lawyer, told me the truth and what my options were. I found his advice sound and insightful. He staff was also very nice and helpful. While I hope never to use his services again (divorce) if needed I would definitely use him again.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
