The Kansas City Consumer’s Attorney

During his time with these various business entities, he gained both a broad exposure and keen understanding about multiple aspects of Consumer Law, and saw a real need in the Kansas City market for an experienced attorney in addressing and resolving consumer protection cases.

Today, the firm is dedicated to the fair, equitable treatment of its clients and the resolution of their financial claims and/or personal safety and well-being. Mr. Bell regularly attends conferences and events concerning consumer rights such as the National Consumer Law Center’s (NCLC) annual conference. As well, he is a an Eagle in the Kansas Trial Lawyers Organization (KTLA), and a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA), the Kansas Association of Justice, the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, and the Litigation sections of the Kansas Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.
