Ken brings the same spirit of community service to his law practice that he does to the fire department where he volunteers as a firefighter. Even when litigating, Ken finds that doing what is best for all involved satisfies his clients and everyone else.

Having represented both plaintiffs and defendants at all levels, including the United States Supreme Court, he says that his favorite fires to put out have been those in the arena of political subdivision litigation and general counsel – this is where his personable nature and dedication to finding the facts can really save the day.

Ken Campbell represents political subdivisions throughout the State of Texas, including emergency services districts and municipalities. He also practices in professional liability and real estate errors and omissions.

As of January 1, 2006, BAJB is proud to have Ken Campbell named as a partner.
