What Others Are Saying

One quality of an intelligent person and a great attorney is the ability to distill complicated matters into something everyone can comprehend. That is exactly why, when coverage questions arose, my company turned to Ms. Campbell for counsel. She does an exceptional job at reducing complex coverage issues into easily understandable concepts. She demonstrates a keen ability to relate legal concepts to my company’s unique business.

Sidney L. Kerley, Esq., General Counsel, Insurance Auto Auctions

When I was in private practice I worked alongside Tracy Campbell and saw firsthand the proactive risk assessments, and the overview of coverage options she would conduct for clients. I have no doubt there are many companies who stand to benefit from the kind of insurance coverage counseling Tracy provides. Any company that is not conducting periodic, comprehensive risk assessments -- or just wants a fresh or different perspective than the one its broker or coverage litigation counsel has provided -- should talk to Tracy.

Thomas J. Henehan, Esq., VP/General Counsel, manufacturing industry
