Having dealt with many attorneys over the years I would categorically state the Clayton Campbell is the finest attorney that I have ever met.

“When I called Campbell Whitten I spoke to both Jesse and Sam, after describing our very difficult double felony situation they referred me to Clayton Campbell. Clayton listened and explained the complexities of the law he told me that what we were trying to do was almost impossible but he was "cautiously optimistic" that it could be accomplished. Clayton was always available, his secretary Kylie was very kind and helpful. We had many phone conferences. He was always sure that we were informed as to the status of the case. After several months and much work by Clayton we went to court for sentencing and the very best possible outcome was given. I would say that Clayton went above and beyond for his client. Clayton Campbell is a fine attorney, he knows the law and how to use it to best serve his clients. His brief to the court was brilliant. Having dealt with many attorneys over the years I would categorically state the Clayton Campbell is the finest attorney that I have ever met. He is personable, caring and extremely professional. I highly recommend Clayton Campbell and sincerely thank him for all of his efforts.”

    “My boyfriend has gotten in trouble a few times, and after having some bad experiences with other attorneys, we finally found Campbell Whitten. Their honest, they work hard, they actually care about their clients, and they also happen to be great criminal defense attorneys. Based on the quality of representation you get, you would think they would be more expensive than other attorneys, but surprisingly their rates were actually better than most of the other lawyers we talked to. I would never consider going with anyone else! My only complaint is that they only do criminal law. I wish I could find attorneys like this for other stuff.”

  • I don’t regret for one second deciding to hire this law firm.

    “Good afternoon everyone. I just wanted to tell the people of Bakersfield that we as a community have a great law firm on 19th street right downtown. I needed a lawyer in a very bad way and in a short amount of time and the case was in Ventura, which isn’t an easy task. From the very beginning of talking with Mr. Campbell and Mr. Whitten, I couldn’t be happier with how they as a group (the entire office) have treated my family and my case. This team of lawyers understand the fact that they are dealing with people’s livelihood and do the absolute best they can to accommodate you as a client. I don’t regret for one second deciding to hire this law firm. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I would advise anyone that needs a good lawyer, I encourage everyone to call Campbell-Whitten law firm first.”

  • I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs expert legal representation.

    “I was facing up to 6 months in jail with no other option but to do the time for my third DUI. The attorneys heard my story and did everything in their power to make sure I didn't go to jail. As a single father of three they understood my situation and made it possible for me to not have to be apart from my kids . I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs expert legal representation. Thanks to the awesome Attorneys at Campbell Written.”

  • If you ever have problems with the law, there is no one better to have on your side.

    “If you’re looking for a really great criminal defense lawyer, you need to call Campbell Whitten. Trust me on this one, these guys are the best. I was facing felony charges and the DA made me an offer of 2 years in prison and offered my co-defendant 16 months in prison. my co-defendant took the 16 months and the lawyer I had basically told me I was an idiot if I didnt take the 2 years. I almost took his advice but a friend told me I should call Campbell Whitten first, and man am I glad I did. I went in and talked to Jesse Whitten, and right away he told me that he thought I had a good defense. I didn’t know whether to believe him or not, but decided to give them a chance. Jesse went in, argued my case, and negotiated a deal for 7 days in jail instead of 2 years in prison! He told me he could probable get the case dismissed altogether if I wanted to fight it, but I decided I was happy with the offer of 7 days in jail. I have had a few minor legal problems since, and their whole firm has always been super helpful. I know there busy but they always find a way to make time for me, all three lawyers at the firm (Jesse, Clayton, and Sam) not only known what they were doing, but have gone out of their way to help me. If you ever have problems with the law, there is no one better to have on your side.”

  • When I first met with the Campbell Whitten defense team I was relieved.

    “When faced with the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, it is no easy task to trust anyone with the keys to your future. When I first met with the Campbell Whitten defense team I was relieved. I knew I then had a voice that could speak on my behalf and left that first meeting unbelievably relieved. I felt I just had a one on one meeting with a judge who accurately and humanely told me the truth. I made a mistake, I was overcharged, I didn't belong in jail, and they would fight for me. I cant thank them enough!”

  • Believe me he's got your back and I can honestly say he will always be in my circle of TRUST.

    “This Firm went over and beyond my needs of protecting my constitutional rights as a citizen and being wrongly accused. Clayton was also there for my case after I moved out of state and received notification of a bench warrant. It's nice to have a lawyer like Campbell by your side in the event of almost losing your rights and freedom at the same time. Believe me he's got your back and I can honestly say he will always be in my circle of TRUST......Just saying!!! :) Thanks for always being there Clay Your Oregon Defendant, J W”

  • I would definitely recommend Campbell Whitten to anyone who wants a good lawyer who will fight for them.

    “I was charged with resisting the police with force and was facing up to eleven years in prison. I felt like I didn't do anything wrong and I wanted to fight my case. A friend told me about Campbell Whitten so I decided to go and talk to them. I spoke with Jesse and he agreed to represent me. We took it to trial, and I was acquitted on all charges. Jesse had a plan from start to finish and fought hard on my behalf. I would definitely recommend Campbell Whitten to anyone who wants a good lawyer who will fight for them.”

  • The way Jesse handled our unique case was awesome.

    “No other firm could top the Attentiveness and quick response that Jesse gave to my husbands case... I would have never have thought that my husband could be home with his family as quick as he was, but the way Jesse handled our unique case was awesome. I will recommend him to anybody that ever needs help legally in the future.”

  • Thank you Mr. Whitten and Ms. Tate for everything you have done to get me another shot in life!!!

    “If you're in a tough spot and looking for respected and trustworthy council, Campbell Whitten is the law firm to go with. Not only is their presence felt in the courtroom but they also carry themselves in a professional manner that means business. I was facing 27 felony counts with violence that carried a life sentence. Due to the reputation and dedication of Mr. Whitten, 24 counts were dismissed and I was offered a non-violent plea deal which also dismissed any enhancements and priors. If your looking for a law firm that will fight for your rights, then I highly recommend Campbell Whitten. Thank you Mr. Whitten and Ms. Tate for everything you have done to get me another shot in life!!! Humbly HF”
