Timothy E. Campen began the first seven years of his legal career at the San Diego City Attorney’s Office. His responsibilities included defending the City in general tort and complex public works litigation; working with the City’s redevelopment agencies; and advising the City on Americans with Disabilities Act compliance. Additionally, he served as Head Deputy City Attorney for the City’s nationally recognized Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit. 

Following his tenure with the City, Mr. Campen spent five years as a felony prosecutor with the San Diego District Attorney’s office. There he concentrated on family protection; major narcotics offenders; and internet crimes against children. 

After 12 years of public service, Mr. Campen entered private practice focusing primarily on civil litigation, including defending businesses and individuals in tort, contract and employment claims before joining the Hensley Law Group. He currently serves as a Deputy City Attorney for the cities of Bellflower and Monterey Park.

In addition to his vast experience with litigation matters, Mr. Campen served as faculty with the Family Justice Center Alliance. In that capacity, he travelled throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and the Middle East, presenting trainings and working with civic leaders, judges, law enforcement, and advocates towards development of innovative coordinated community responses to family violence.  

 Mr. Campen and his wife have found themselves outnumbered with three lovely children. In his free time, Mr. Campen sings and plays guitar in a rock ‘n roll band.
