Paul V. L. Campo

Vista, California

Attorney Paul V. L. Campo has more than 30 years of experience providing a full

spectrum of legal services to his clients. His practice areas include estate planning,

probate, conservatorships, and guardianships. Paul seamlessly guides his clients

through the complexities of court procedures and deadlines imposed under

California law for probate and trust administration. He believes that an essential

skill when meeting with his clients is to listen to them, rather than to talk at them.


Paul takes great pride in helping people achieve their estate planning goals. He

knows that just preparing a will or a trust is never enough – people need advance

health care directives, powers of attorney and other related documents. He analyzes

the unique needs of his clients to draft documents tailored to their individual



Paul is a native of Vista. After graduating from Vista High School, he attended

Stanford University and received his B.A. in 1981. He then attended the UCLA

School of Law, and graduated with a J.D. in 1984. While in law school he was an

editor of the law review and a member of the moot court honors program. After

leaving law school, Paul worked for two large corporate law firms. That experience

made him realize that all people should receive the highest caliber of representation

without paying the costs of high-rise suites and custom-decorated offices. Since

opening his own firm, Paul has consistently worked hard to achieve these goals.


Paul has a deep commitment to helping his community outside of his law practice.

His civic involvement includes serving as a Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem for the

City of Vista, as a member and Chairman of the Encina Wastewater Authority, and

as a member of the governing board of the Tri-City Healthcare District. Charitable

work is very important to Paul, as his time on the boards of the Tri-City Hospital

Foundation and the Foundation of the Elizabeth Hospice can attest.


When not at the office or working to improve his community, Paul enjoys traveling,

reading, walking his dog, and spending time with his close friends.
