Paul V. L. Campo



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.
