Spaulding & Campi Criminal Attorneys defends people accused of all crimes including misdemeanors, felonies, DUI and juvenile cases throughout Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties.

Former clients have told law partners Michelle Spaulding and Patricia Campi that they are “forever grateful” and that they “would not trust their life in anyone else’s hands.” These remarks were earned as a result of Michelle and Patricia’s unrelenting pursuit of innocence on behalf of their clients.

Whether clients are charged with a first time DUI, a petty theft or a serious felony such as embezzlement or a sex crime, Ms. Spaulding and Ms. Campi understand that their role as criminal defense attorneys is to fight to win. Unlike other firms, the partners at Spaulding Campi, handle all of the cases themselves. They do not delegate their clients to junior level associates and are not afraid to take cases to trial. In all circumstances, their goal is a complete dismissal of charges or an acquittal at trial.

The firm offers a free initial consultation, affordable fees and accepts payment plans under most circumstances.

Why Hire Spaulding & Campi?

Cases Handled Only by Firm Partners with over 20 Years of Experience

Many firms have a few highly regarded and experienced attorneys at the top who only take on the firm's biggest cases. However, these firms also have junior level associates who handle most of the routine cases. Spaulding & Campi Criminal Attorneys does not take this approach. Rather, both Ms. Spaulding and Ms. Campi guarantee that they will personally handle all cases they accept themselves. This means that even for a minor offense such as a first time DUI, clients benefit by having a senior level trial attorney fighting for them.

Focus on Frequent Client Contact Including Access to a Client Portal

Some of the larger law firms — and all public defenders — take on far more clients than they should.  The result is that clients can't reach their attorneys when they need to and their cases don't receive the attention that they deserve.  Being charged with a crime is a stressful and potentially life-altering experience. The attorneys at Spaulding Campi and their support staff pledge to provide frequent updates to insure that clients are in the loop at every stage of the case. The firm is also one of the few gives clients access to their case status through a client portal. The portal allows clients to login anytime to view their case calendar and share information confidentially with their attorneys.

Only Criminal Defense

The attorneys at the firm are not interested in dog bite cases or divorce law. They recognize that a practice with a 100% focus on Criminal Defense in the Sacramento area gives them an advantage compared to attorneys with a general practice.

Immigration Expertise

If you are charged with a crime and are also a non-citizen, you face additional complications in your case. Spaulding & Campi Criminal Attorneys consequently works with criminal immigration law expert, Scott Mossman, who becomes part of the defense team in these situations.

Known Throughout the Sacramento Area

The Spaulding Campi firm takes on cases only in the Sacramento area and the surrounding counties...but not in the San Francisco Bay Area or elsewhere. This means that the firm's attorneys are Sacramento insiders. They are known and respected by the local district attorneys, the judges and the police officers. This local familiarity make them more effective than firms who have a wider practice and only occasionally visit our area.

Not Afraid to go to Trial

Sometimes the best results in a case come from playing hardball with the District Attorney and pushing a case to trial. Many firms take the easy way out and settle early without sufficient fight. At Spaulding Campi, the attorneys know from experience that best results come when the prosecutors know that the defense has a track record of going to trial and winning at trial.

Not Former District Attorneys

Some firms brag that their attorneys are former district attorneys. What they don't tell you is that defense attorneys who were former DA's are often conflicted. Most of these attorneys would prefer to be on the prosecution side, but washed out of the DAs office. Now they are practicing criminal law as a second choice.

At Spaulding Campi, the attorneys are proud to say that they have always been criminal defense attorneys and never plan to switch sides. They believe deeply in defending the rights of the accused and in keeping the system honest.
