R. Nash Campbell

Special Counsel

Education clients rely on my hands-on experience to help them with a broad range of challenges. I offer them more than a decade of high-level, hands-on experience in difficult and highly technical legal issues.

Nash Campbell focuses his practice primarily on education law and representing public school boards. With experience successfully arguing before the Eleventh Circuit Court and before the Supreme Court of Alabama from early on in his career, Nash is an experienced litigator who aims to be hands-on with his clients at every stage of a matter.

Nash’s experience includes litigating school law issues, including school employment issues, contractual issues and personal injury issues relating to incidents occurring on school campuses.

Nash attends school board meetings and acts as the chief litigator on behalf of school boards throughout south Alabama. He also works with boards of education and individual schools, consulting them and their personnel daily and providing litigation services when needed.

 As Alabama’s education system experiences change, Nash is helping to establish charter schools. Additionally, he assists school systems with the separation from larger ones, helping them to develop their own structures and governance.

Nash also represents the Alabama Trust for Boards of Education, which provides liability coverage to public school boards in the state.

In addition to his education law focus, Nash represents clients in municipal law, general civil litigation, personal injury litigation and business law.

Watching my father make an impact as an education lawyer left me wanting to be a school board attorney from a very young age. Having the opportunity to work alongside my father for more than a decade has given me the benefit of having an outstanding and dedicated mentor guiding me and encouraging me to aim high from day one of my legal career.
