Jason T. Campbell, Attorney of Counsel
For more than a decade, Jason Campbell has represented defendants at every stage of the criminal justice process, in both state and federal courts. Since 2013, Mr. Campbell has worked with the late Kent Russell to represent those individuals who are in the most perilous situations. Already convicted, their convictions affirmed on direct appeal, they are, for all intents and purposes, lost to the system, unless and until they can vindicate their rights through the unwieldy and labyrinthine habeas corpus process.
Mr. Campbell has zealously defended his clients at the trial level, obtaining favorable results, outright dismissals, and even, in one instance, convincing prosecutors to release a man wrongfully accused and held in custody for nearly two years on murder charges. As a post-conviction attorney, Mr. Campbell has obtained new trials, had convictions reversed, and sentences reduced on direct appeal and collateral review. He is committed to protecting the rights of his clients and quelling the unjust actions of police and prosecutors whose myopic view of defendants and ends-justify-the-means approach to criminal justice yields innumerable wrongful convictions.
Having spent the better part of the last decade representing clients on habeas corpus, Mr. Campbell intends to continue the valuable work begun by Mr. Russell, representing clients in habeas proceedings, in California state and federal courts, and continuing to revise and publish Mr. Russell’s California Habeas Handbook.
