    I had the honor of attending law school with Mr. Bell. In that time and in the years after, I have had a number of opportunities to observe his work ethic, his passion for defending a client, and his devotion to the practice of law. Drawing from my experiences with Mr. Bell, I can state whole-heartedly that he has impressed me and that I would not hesitate to consult him with a legal matter.
