I am attorney Scott Campbell and I practice criminal defense in Phoenix, Arizona. If you are charged with a crime then you want an attorney whose main focus is criminal defense. Only a criminal defense lawyer can guarantee that you receive all of your constitutional rights and get a fair trial. My focus is in criminal law and if you choose me to defend you, then you can expect nothing less than the highest quality criminal defense.
I am able to offer you the highest quality defense because of my unique experience within the criminal justice system. Before I was a defense attorney I was a police officer for 26 years. Being a police officer allowed me to gain insight into the criminal justice system that I would have not known otherwise. While I was a police officer I learned about various practices, techniques, and procedures that other attorneys would normally not know. My experience as a criminal defense attorney and as a police officer gives me and my clients a unique advantage when going to court.
My policing career lasted 26 years. During that time I learned a lot about what the police and prosecution are trying to achieve during trial and the techniques they employ to build a case against you. When I was officer, I would be involved in cases from start to finish. I know what goes into building a case against someone and that gives me a distinct advantage when defending one of my clients. After 26 years, I know how the other side thinks and they are not looking out for your interests.
Do not make the mistake that police or prosecutors are trying to help you. The police and prosecutors are building a case against you. The more you talk to them, the more you strengthen their case and not yours. Talking to an attorney early on in the process will give you and your lawyer the opportunity to build your defense. After an arrest, my clients feel uneasy and have a lot of questions. Scheduling a free consultation with me will put your mind at ease and provide you with answers to all of your questions.
Having worked in policing and criminal defense, I have had to deal with countless numbers of police and at various capacities. Because of those experiences, I know things about criminal law that other attorneys won’t know unless they were in law enforcement. I have seen the process from the other side and that knowledge is invaluable. Finding a criminal defense attorney who has personal experience in policing is rare. Police officers who become lawyers usually end up on the prosecution side. My unique experience and dedication to my clients is what makes me such a successful criminal defense attorney.
Not knowing what is going to happen if you are charged with a crime can be very discomforting. Contact me as soon as possible so I can discuss the details of your case and provide you with options for moving forward.

Do Cops Lie?
- Of course they do; they are human just like you and me. Every human lies at some point, even if they justify it as a “little white lie.” Cops are no different, though...
