Law Office of PJ Campanaro

The Law Office of PJ Campanaro was formed in 2010 after PJ had spent over 10 years in the trenches of litigation as a prosecutor and litigator.  PJ grew up in a small town in East Tennessee and pursued and English and Political Science degree from the University of Tennessee.  She graduated in 1996 from the University of Tennessee knowing that she was ready to pursue a law degree after having headed a Nationally Competitive Mock Trial Team.

PJ pursued her law degree at Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama and continued her Mock Trial success making it to the championship round of the Mock Trial Competition in only her second year of law school.  PJ received an opportunity to work as a law clerk on a major criminal case involving a serial killer in Knoxville, Tennessee and finished out her legal studies while working daily on the Zoo Man case.

After law school, PJ worked as an Assistant District Attorney General, a Staff Attorney for the State of Tennessee pursuing asset forfeitures, and then, after moving to Georgia, worked as the Chief Assistant Solicitor General in Richmond County for six years.  PJ has taken hundreds of cases to trial and had 100%  conviction rate on her DUI cases in Richmond County.  PJ has the trial experience needed to pursue your case to trial if that is what is needed.

PJ also knows how to fight for what is needed in your personal injury case.  She received an award for her work with victim’s in cases and has the sensitivity coupled with toughness to get the compensation that victim’s deserve.

PJ also has a passion for exercise and fitness.  She has competed on several Half Marathons, a Full Marathon, and most recently, the Augusta Half Ironman. She believes that the mental and physical toughness that is required for these events helps her prepare for the trials of litigation.  PJ lives in Evans, Georgia with her family.
