SENIOR MANAGING PARTNER
Bell Law Firm was founded by me in 2000. I had worked in medium sized (over 30 attorneys) firms and I had represented several lending institutions, creditors, and technical companies in Oregon and Washington. It became evident to me that it was unnecessary to own a large firm in a large metropolitan area to provide quality service to business/corporate clients, lenders, and creditors and my practice was so widespread (between federal and state courts in Oregon and Washington) that an office next to a courthouse was unnecessary and not efficient.
I have been in practice since 1987 and I have been licensed to practice, and have regularly practiced, in both Oregon and Washington. Over that period of time I have represented several lending institutions and private lenders, creditors, businesses of various sizes, and individuals, in a broad array of business, lending and commercial circumstances.
I have been the lead attorney in mergers and acquisitions as well as complex litigation. I have represented debtors through the confirmation of Chapter 11, 12, and 13 plans in bankruptcy. I have represented fuel recyclers and refineries in administrative hearings and lawsuits involving hazardous materials.
I am a regular speaker at Continuing Legal Education seminars and other events in Oregon and Washington on various topics, including the Uniform Commercial Code, contracts, laws and issues specifically affecting the agricultural industry, judicial and non-judicial foreclosures of real property, forcible entry and detainer actions, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and other issues concerning lenders, commercial evictions, provisional process/replevin/receivership, and many different bankruptcy topics. In addition, I have prepared written materials and spoken on topics concerning the formation, sale, and purchase of businesses. I have testified as an expert witness in state and federal courts and I have been engaged to provide expert reviews and opinions.
