Jordan Campbell is an accomplished litigator, leader, and counselor who has rapidly emerged as one of Dallas’s go-to business trial attorneys. He began his career practicing commercial litigation at the global law firm, Norton Rose Fulbright, where he not only developed a highly diversified practice but also demonstrated his passion for and commitment to pro bono work, receiving the prestigious Jaworski Award, the firm’s top award for pro bono work.

Mr. Campbell graduated magna cum laude from Washington & Lee University, where he lettered four years on the Generals varsity football team and received one of the university’s highest honors as his class’s graduation speaker. Mr. Campbell then served as a missionary with Athletes in Action in China while also studying Mandarin at the Shanghai University of Sport. He returned to Dallas to pursue his law degree, where he was the President of the SMU Law Review and again graduated magna cum laude. Mr. Campbell is a Blackstone Legal Fellow and now serves on the Emerging Leaders Board at SMU Dedman School of Law.

A fierce litigator with a heart for service, Mr. Campbell’s broad base of experience and successful track record are why he has recently been selected by Best Lawyers as “One to Watch” in their inaugural class.

Experience

Mr. Campbell has extensive experience litigating in a diverse array of practice areas across state and federal courts throughout the United States. He has defended major national companies in federal and state antitrust cases from coast to coast—including state courts in California and Texas and federal courts in Texas and Georgia—as well as in federal and state antitrust investigations throughout the United States. On the opposite end of the spectrum, he has represented microcap companies, both defending against and suing predatory toxic note lenders in federal court. And his practice has encompassed nearly everything in between, including successfully arguing at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding Texas insurance law, defending against catastrophic injury in Texas state court, litigating and counseling employers on labor and employment matters, defending against and pursuing breach of contract and UCC claims in Texas state court, arbitrating construction litigation claims based in Louisiana, investigating and advising on data breach and cyber security matters for multinational corporations, and pursuing First Amendment and related religious liberty claims in federal court in New York as part of his dedicated pro bono work. Mr. Campbell even spent six months prosecuting misdemeanors for the City of Carrollton, where he compiled a 100% conviction rate. A common thread connecting his diverse practice has been his expertise in electronic discovery, which he has routinely leveraged to achieve significant savings for his clients as well as pursue creative and aggressive strategies against his opponents.

Aside from my faith, nothing is more important to me than my family, and in particular my five children. Ironically, it’s a rare occasion that any of them actually wear shoes of any kind. But when they all do, it’s for the holidays, which are my favorite memories, and it’s always the boots.

My wife Kathryn and I love few things more than hosting friends and family. Whether it’s one person on a weeknight or my entire side of the family for Christmas, we love to make delicious food for whoever steps into our house. While Kathryn (and her culinary degree/background) is the real star of the show, I love to contribute my part, usually on the Green Egg.

As the fourth of five brothers, I had a ball in my hands as far back as I can remember. While I loved the thrill of any competition, my first love was and will always be football. It’s the ultimate team sport, and it taught me more than any class I ever took. These days, I’ve turned in my cleats for the clipboard, as I now relish coaching my kids as they enter the wonderful world of sports.
