I first consulted Ms. Jalila Bell seeking legal advice in reference to a dispute I had with a contractor. Based off that advice, I hired Ms. Bell to help me resolve the issue, using the most efficient means possible. In reference to her service, Ms. Bell was attentive, knowledgeable and transparent as the case progressed. Her calm but assertive confidence also provided me with the support I needed in heightened moments, when handling exchanges with the contractor. The case was resolved in the form of a settlement to prevent further escalation; reviewing the details and her advice, it was the best possible outcome. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Ms. Jalila A. Bell’s handling of that dispute, I will definitely use her services again and I will continue to recommend her expert legal service to any one in need.
