Prior to starting his own firm, attorney Bell first worked for a large New York litigation firm. There he honed his case preparation and trial skills. He also gained great experience handling complex cases that sometimes involved millions of dollars in claims. But he felt something was missing from his work. He felt there was more he could do for his clients if he was able to choose the cases and how to proceed from the beginning. So he left that firm and opening his own company, The Law Office of Jonathan Bell which turned into The Bell Law Group.
