Michael D. Bell
“I practice law because I was raised to treat people fairly and with compassion and to expose injustice. Being a trial lawyer provides me the opportunity to do just that. I believe that trial lawyers comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. In this era of pro-business/anti-consumer sentiment, where profit is king to the detriment of the common good, I gain great satisfaction in providing my clients some measure of comfort, often in their greatest time of need.”
