“Champions of the people.” It’s a catchy phrase, and a great motto. This motto is the first thing that you see when you enter the offices of personal injury law firm of Bell & Pollock. The attorneys and support staff here strive to live by these words every day.
The Bell & Pollock law firm was founded by Gary Bell and Bradley Pollock. They met many years ago when they worked at a larger firm that handled all types of cases. Gary and Bradley discovered that they preferred to work on individual cases rather than on corporate accounts. In 1984, they decided to strike out on their own and started their own firm. Over the last 30 years, the firm has grown to include additional attorneys, a full support staff, and paralegals. Kay is the office manager and makes sure that the operations in the office flow smoothly. Kelly and Karen are the “detail» people in the office; as paralegals, they are the bridge between attorneys and clients.
The law firm specializes in all types of personal injury cases, including car, motorcycle, and truck accidents; workers’ compensation issues; and other kinds of traumatic injuries. Gary explains how his law firm is different from other firms that handle these types of cases. “We are not a run-of-the-mill law firm. We spend time with our clients and with each case. We do not focus on ‘turning’ cases quickly; instead, we help our clients to understand that each case is special. Our biggest challenge is fighting insurance companies that have a paid staff of attorneys whose only focus is to challenge claims. We overcome that challenge by educating and empowering our clients.”
The Bell & Pollock law firm works through a “legal game plan” with each client, from the free initial consultation to the final meeting. The first meeting is used to gather information about the potential case. What happened, in detail? Then they educate the client about the process, explain the next steps, and plan out a strategy for moving forward. If the client decides to hire Bell & Pollock, then the law firm retrieves any pertinent records, builds an action report, and details the investigation process.
The game plan further develops which includes identifying the direction of the case, answering client questions, and preparing for the next steps. “We plan to prepare for trial from our perspective,” Gary explains, “so our game plan helps the client understand what to do and what not to do, in preparation. We want the client to understand the whole process and what will happen, step by step.”
Tom has just completed an injury case with Bell & Pollock, and he gives them high marks. “I was afraid of finding the stereotypical lawyer, out for the money rather than coming to a fair and right conclusion,” Tom says. He interviewed multiple law firms before deciding to hire Bell & Pollock.
“I immediately felt comfortable working with Bell & Pollock’s firm,” Tom explains. “They were fair and ethical, and good to work with. They explained each step along the way, so that I knew what to expect. The whole staff was great. I felt like they were fighting for me, were very prepared, and they did what they said they would do. I could not have imagined a better outcome for me, and I would highly recommend Bell & Pollock for injury cases.”
Bill and Liz were also involved in a lawsuit and retained the services of Bell & Pollock. They worked together for over three years, and the case was resolved in December of 2014. “The entire office was professional and accommodating,” Liz shares, “working with us until we were comfortable with the information. They continually briefed us with case updates, and we knew the procedures and felt prepared each step of the way. The situation was as pleasurable as it could be under the circumstances, due to the personal service provided by Gary Bell and the supporting staff.” Bill agrees. “We highly recommend Bell & Pollock,” he says. “They focused on keeping us informed with the details of the case, and they educated us every step of the way.”
