The law firm of Henry N. Bell, III , is dedicated to serving clients in the areas of divorce, family law, probate administration and wills, criminal defense, commercial collections, and civil litigation. Our attorney provides knowledgeable, dedicated and affordable representation.
Our firm approaches each case aggressively but effectively while focusing on what's best for the client. While resolution by agreement of the parties, mediation, or another form of alternative dispute resolution is preferable and less costly, negotiation is only effective if both sides are willing to compromise. Therefore, there are times when trial is the only way to resolve a matter. In these times, you need an attorney that is ready and willing to fight for you and your rights. We provide aggressive representation because being tough on the opposition may have a dramatic impact on the outcome of a case. Our attorney will not provoke a legal battle unnecessarily; however, he will not shy away from one.
Our clients can count on having direct and open access to their attorney and his staff throughout their case. We will address your concerns in a timely and hands-on manner, working diligently for you in providing counsel that is knowledgeable, fair, and responsible, and representation that is tough and committed to your best interests.
In the event that Mr. Bell is unavailable due to trial or other proceedings, our clients can count on his dedicated, knowledgeable staff to assist them. Our paralegals will work closely with you to help you through the legal process and will provide compassionate assistance when you need it most.
