Master of his craft
Colin was very professional and specific in his explanations throughout my case. Should I have a question and follow-up questions he was willing, able, while kind and honest is his answers. He was able to help me when other attorneys were unable. His expertise was immense and on a new level as he understands both the administrative and criminal law aspects of things. He was able to use his knowledge and skill to assist in my case, where I don't think other attorneys would have been able, due to his insight in multiple areas of law. He educated me in the differences in law and the impacts of these variations. He was truly heaven sent in my case and I was beyond grateful to have him represent me. He was able to take a very low experience in my life and help make it a positive and growing experience. Words cannot adequately describe my gratitude and his comprehensive understanding in his craft. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know, or to utilize him myself, though I hope the need to do so never arises again.

Excellent, Knowledgeable, Affordable
Mr. Bell represented my interests when a court order was served against me. His technical expertise & extensive knowledge of the case law required was impeccable. He brought me confidence and reassurance that the case was possible to be found in my favor & vacated. Mr. Bell also prepared me for the upcoming hearing by making sure my testimony if it was required, would support the facts & defense in the case. The fees were more than reasonable & well worth it. Mr. Bell was also great at keeping in communication with me so I would have a complete status of the case at all times.

Proficient, Easy to Work with & Successful Defense Attorney
Colin demonstrated proficiency from the first appointment I had with him; he explained everything to me regarding my case, in a way I could fully understand the situation. I was able to stay calm in very stressful moments due to his advice. Colin kept me informed on everything relevant to my case during and before I had my court hearing; his professionalism, knowledge & experience, were evident in court. Mr. Bell was successful providing an excellent defense representation in my legal matter. I would highly recommend Attorney Colin S. Bell, to anyone who needs legal advice or defense representation in court!!

Helpful in a stressful time
I found Colin online for a Department of Insurance case. He helped take over the stress of me dealing with them. Even though they tried to steam roll me, with Colin's help, I believe I got the best possible outcome in the situation.

Accurate, professional and bold
Attorney Colin Bell has represented me on two occasions in a protection order lawsuit that I filed. On the first occasion, he represented me at the hearing, were in just 4 days he managed to prepare the entire case and emerge victorious from the trial. On the second occasion, also related to the same case, the lawyer prepared the case and carried out the entire process in such a way that in the end, the judge gave us the reason and also forced the counterpart to bear the representation expenses.

Excellent attorney
If your seeking the best attorney in the valley colin should be your choice. Since day one he fought for me, got me exactly what i wanted in court puts 100% plus more into his work. And when it came time to get me off probation early it was a success. He is straight forward and very detailed at explaining so all my questions were answered before i even asked. Highly recommended

Colin Bell
It is my absolute pleasure to endorse Colin Bell. His knowledge and experience in the law was far above and beyond all my expectations. I hired Colin for a very difficult family matter that required a supperior skill set, dogged determined, and extreme professionalism, all traits that Colin Bell has mastered. He represents me and redeemed my reputation in a way that I will always be indebted to him for. Throughout the whole process he explained what was going on, presented me with my options and answered my questions in a way that was clear to me. I never felt lost or behind in anyway. It is my privilege to wholeheartedly recommend Colin Bell.

I am out of state and hired Colin to handle an issue I was having in Arizona. Colin was Outstanding!!!!!!! He went over and above what was needed and clearly communicated with me every step of the way. Colin dove into my challenge as if it were his own. I felt we were a real team. I trusted him and was kept up to date on every detail. He kept everything calm, he really cared. I kind of feel like we're friends now ... I can't wait to actually meet him some day. Excellent and outstanding. I would highly recommend Colin.
