David Bell, LLB (Hons)

David’s expertise lies in his broad knowledge and experience across the range of legal services. He started practising law in 1975 and attained partnership within a national law firm and excelled in all areas.

David established his own law practice in 1992 and his client base began experiencing his expertise and personal approach, not to mention the successful outcomes of his diligent work. An opportunity soon arose to absorb a local practice and its clients, to increase the diversity of the client base. The practice then had the opportunity to absorb another local practice and with this the original Bell Anderson firm was created. In August 2015 the firm changed its name to Bell Associates to reflect the firm's personnel more appropriately.

David is passionate about helping clients through life's hurdles and believes that a solid support system is the key to peace of mind.
