Ingrid K. Campagne has practiced litigation in California since 1992 and currently works in WFBM's San Francisco office.  Her focus is on environmental litigation with an emphasis on products liability, toxic tort and premises liability.  Ingrid enjoys trying cases and has achieved an impressive trial record.  She has represented many types of companies including manufacturers, premises owners, contractors and distributors.  Ingrid serves as lead counsel for numerous companies, including work as national coordinating counsel for some. 

Ingrid believes that client relationships are of paramount importance and she enjoys meeting clients and being the person that shepherds them through the law suit process.  Ingrid understands that whether sued in one case or in a hundred cases, litigation is stressful, and she wants her clients to know that she is there to help. "No one enjoys being sued," she says.  "I see my job as making the process as efficient, pain-free and expeditious as possible, while delivering solid results."

In her spare time, Ingrid is the Executive Director of Waggin' Trails Rescue Foundation, a registered California non-profit organization. The group rescues dogs and cats from life threatening situations including abusive or neglectful owners, abandoned foreclosure sites and animals on their last day at shelters. Ingrid advises, "Thousands of animals are killed in shelters monthly because of lack of space.  Every breed, including dogs and cats of all ages, sizes and temperaments are available through animal rescues and animal shelters." She asks that you please search for available animals through breed rescues and shelters before purchasing from a breeder.
