South Carolina native J. Edward Bell III, founder and senior partner of Bell Legal Group, is an attorney and businessman who serves as president and managing partner of the Charleston School of Law.
In a career spanning more than 30 years, he has distinguished himself as a top litigation attorney at the local, state and national levels. He has tried more than 300 major cases throughout the United States. His unique approach in complex auto litigation case work led him to establish a Vehicle Safety Research Center, a facility with in-house engineers that has evolved into a multi-disciplined Science and Technology Center used to assist attorneys in unraveling technical information associated with trial work.
Bell was recently inducted into the Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group with membership limited to 100 of the best plaintiff trial lawyers in the United States. He is chairman of the board of Garden & Gun magazine and The Litchfield Company.
