Biography

William Campbell's experience as a litigator has placed him in a unique position to fight for his clients. After graduating from Southwestern University College of Law and passing the California State Bar Exam, William sought as much time in the courtroom as possible. The best place to do this was working for the Fresno County Public Defender and District Attorney's Office.

William's start as a criminal defense attorney with the Public Defenders Office was short-lived after securing an acquittal for his client in his first jury trial as a lawyer. It was soon after that acquittal that William found himself working for the District Attorney's Office. In that capacity, William spent almost every day in the courtroom arguing motions and doing jury trials. The number of hours spent in the courtroom refined William's courtroom presence and skill as a litigator.

With all the necessary skills to be an effective litigator, William moved to the private sector and to civil law. William began working as a Senior Litigator with The Seideman Law Firm, P.C. William fought for consumers who were harassed by creditors, debt collectors, and debt buyers as a Plaintiff's lawyer using the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and its California equivalent, The Rosenthal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. William filed and successfully prosecuted over 200 cases. William also defended debtors who were sued in debt collection cases.

William is committed to his clients and fights for them with technique, legal acumen, and passion.
