Attorney Jason Campbell

A North Carolina eminent domain lawyer who puts experience to work for clients

Jason Campbell joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2013 as an attorney in the firm’s Eminent Domain department.

He received his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1994. Three years prior, he graduated from Wayne State University with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Economics.

Prior to joining the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, Jason worked for over 13 years as an Assistant Attorney General for the North Carolina Department of Justice, where he practiced eminent domain law for the Department of Transportation. Jason’s experience included functioning as the lead attorney on a case with the largest exposure the Department had ever faced at that point in time.

Jason feels this experience of working for the “other side” gives him insight into how the DOT operates.

“Working for the DOT really opened my eyes to what the eminent domain process is like in North Carolina,” Jason said. “I saw firsthand the difference between property owners who hired a qualified attorney and those who did not. I want to make sure each and every one of my clients is heard, and I’m excited to put my experience to work for them every time.”

Jason has taken dozens of cases to trial in North Carolina, including a number of high-dollar, high-exposure cases, acting as lead attorney and arguing cases before the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

He is a member of the Wake County Bar Association and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
