I was referred to Neil specifically because he is skilled in complex divorce litigation. My divorce case was lengthy, difficult, often frightening, and highly toxic. You don't want just any divorce attorney for such a case. Neil is tough when he needs to be, but in my case he also worked for the best interests of my children and made every effort to reduce conflict when he could.


I was referred to Neil by mutual acquaintance for my divorce. My divorce was a complicated matter as multiple other litigious factors were involved. Neil and his staff went above and beyond to coordinate this complicated matter. Additionally anytime I had a question the answer was always supplied quickly. Thanks to Neil and his team I walked away satisfied with my outcome. I highly recommend Neil and his team.


For over 4 years, Neil Campbell and Marissa Walters became my advocates. They steered my legal ship with calm resolve, meticulous with every detail allowing me to focus on health and healing for myself and my kids. I felt confident in their knowledge and advisement in my multi-layered, complicated case. They were able to form a narrative, set reasonable expectations, litigate on my behalf, and win again and again and again. Their respect and credibility was visible by judges, opposing counsel clerics and support staff. Because of their knowledge and skill, they never had to swing below the belt. Instead, they not only out-smarted the opposition, but kept a keen awareness and tight-reign on every development throughout the process. For four years, I watched them practice with integrity, honor and perseverance winning case after case.


Worked with Neil during a situation that was incredibly stressful. He was so reassuring and thoughtful; I appreciated that he truly listened and developed a strategy based upon my individual needs and goals. He advocated strongly and advised me on every aspect of dealing with my situation, both inside and outside of the courtroom. In the end, the outcome was exactly what we wanted, and Neil's preparation and insight were responsible for that!


Neil and his team are absolutely outstanding. Going the extra mile is an understatement. His patience, knowledge, ethics, and technical competency were far beyond anything I would have expected. My daughter and I would still be struggling today if it wasn't for Neil. And believe me, my case was a never-ending spiral around every corner. It was a complicated disaster. I could tell he actually cared as much for my daughter's well-being as I did. After all he wasn't just defending and representing me, but both of us. He is true testament to an honest and empathetic attorney. You most definitely want Neil on your side of the table.
