He spoke on preparation, the importance of trial lawyers and their benefits to society, and also shared insight to the struggles he overcame when he first began practicing and how those experiences have shaped his career.
As a dedicated lawyer, Campbell is always striving to learn more and find ways to improve. He uses this information to create strategies and implement them for his clients in the courtroom. He also noted the importance of having the fortitude to forge ahead through fear or nerves, even if there are moments of shakiness or stuttering. Sharing a personal anecdote where a judge informed him his voir dire was all wrong, Campbell said that while he felt paralyzed, he realized he had a decision to make: to sit down or to keep asking questions and move forward.

They may have stumbled over their words in a courtroom or have had moments where they had to control their nerves while presenting a case.
