David Bell Attorney Profile

Top Rated Kansas City Attorney

Consummate Professional & Compassionate Person

I consulted David because of his professional reputation, but I hired David because of the way he listened and cared about me, my wife, and our family. His experience reassured us as he explained each step of the process and advocated for truth and justice. Top notch legal defense is not cheap; however, David and his staff were efficient with their time and kept their fees within reason. I highly recommend David Bell and his firm.

Great Advocate!

I’ve known Dave for years and recently retained him on a matter. The matter was resolved quickly and favorably. Dave communicated throughout the process and walked me through all of the steps and what to expect at each one. I would highly recommend him as he does great work and thinks creatively to get to a resolution that is fair for all parties involved.

Great!

I had a lengthy and very detailed consultation with Mr. Bell. He took the time to understand the matter completely from technical and personal points of view. As a result, I received very thorough guidance. Mr. Bell was highly professional and precise, haven’t exaggerated or promised more than reasonable to expect, unlike some others, which I greatly appreciated.

Victim's View

Mr. Bell represented the “other side” of our dispute. I wasn’t sure what to expect….assumed he’d be aggressive & ruthless. Rather, he was respectful, kind, logical. He negotiated in a way that fostered a spirit of win/win. He has a way of de-escalating fears & frustration while representing and seeking the truth. Mr. Bell impressed me and restored my faith in the legal system.

Personal & Professional

David went through all the likely scenarios/outcomes of our predicament. The process basically went exactly as he described. There were no surprises. Our situation was resolved and we couldn’t be happier.

Awesome Attorney

I am a business owner in the area and I have sought David’s legal advice on a number of issues. On a personal level, I am most thankful for David’s help with our children. He was able to resolve cases in Kansas and Missouri without leaving any permanent marks on their records. During our time together, we developed an appreciation for David’s ability to relate to our family’s unique circumstances. Our kids understood from the outset that David cared about them and their future. He took the time to talk with them about the choices that brought them to a law office. While our kids knew that David would fight hard for them – and he did – they also knew that David would be very disappointed if they did not take advantage of the opportunities provided to them.

Best experience I've ever had with an Attorney!

David was fantastic! I had recently learned about an old warrant and I was very concerned about the impact this could have on my life and my family. I was referred to David by a friend who is an attorney, who assured me, “David’s the best for the job.” When I contacted David, he was very attentive to the details of my specific case and sympathetic to how I wanted to proceed. Within a few hours, David had called me back, conducted a thorough interview and had very carefully advised me how to proceed, and had even contacted the prosecutor’s office regarding my issue. Needless to say, he got a better result than I ever expected, and I was very happy with the outcome!
