Letter to the Editor.
I read with interest your article entitled "Power Of Attorney: Utah's Most Feared Lawyers." No doubt composing such a short list means that a number of "most feared lawyers" could not be included. I was amazed, however, that one of my colleagues, Robert S. Campbell, was left off your list.
Mr. Campbell is a member of every prestigious trial academy in the United States. He has been listed in all editions of "Best Lawyers in America" and is one of only two lawyers in the entire Utah Bar who is listed in two trial sections of "Best Lawyers in America."
Bob's trial successes are legion. He has won more large compensatory and punitive damage jury awards in business fraud cases against large corporations than any Utah lawyer.
He was named "Utah Trial Lawyer of the Year" in 1992, a designation received by only one other lawyer featured in your article. He is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a fellow at the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He has served as Chair of the Committee on the Utah Rules of Civil Procedure and Chairman of the American College of Trial Lawyer's Committee of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. He was special Chief Counsel to the Utah Bar on the Watergate Trial, as well as serving on many other committees. In addition, he has a Diploma of Law from Oxford University.
As a trial lawyer, I consider your omission of Bob Campbell from your list of "Utah's Most Feared Lawyers" to be astonishing. I hope you will correct this oversight in a subsequent edition of your magazine.
Donald J. Winder
