Brandon C. Waltrip founded WALTRIP & CAMPBELL, PC  with the idea that every attorney must be a trial attorney. No attorney can honestly advise their clients of potential outcomes without the ability to take a case to trial. Mr. Waltrip begins each and every case by preparing it for trial before a judge or a jury. This applies whether it is an un-contested, or contested divorce, a criminal matter, or even child custody cases. This allows the client to better understand the advice and counsel they receive. Mr. Waltrip’s belief that this method leads to the most effective outcome for the client, regardless of practice area, forms one of the core values of the firm.

Mr. Waltrip focuses his practice to the areas of DUI, Criminal Defense, Juvenile Crimes, Child Custody, Contested & Un-Contested Divorces, and Civil Litigation. Brandon is a life long resident of James-City County and resides in Toano, Virginia with his wife April, son Silas, and dog The Boss. In his spare time Brandon enjoys hunting, farming and coaching high school wrestling. He is also a member of James River Baptist Church in Williamsburg.
