South Carolina native, J. Edward Bell III, founder and senior partner of Bell Legal Group, is an attorney, businessman, and entrepreneur. In a career spanning more than 30 years, he has distinguished himself as a top litigation attorney at local, state, and national levels and tried more than 300 major cases throughout the United States.
A graduate of University of South Carolina School of Law, Bell distinguished himself as a top civil litigator in the field of complex litigation law with his success in the demanding auto torts and auto safety field. His unique approach in auto case work led him to establish a Vehicle Safety Research Center, a facility that conducts auto defect investigations, accident re-enactments, develops exhibits, and explores the complex nature of the issues surrounding injury and accident cases. Since its inception, the center has evolved into a multi-disciplined Science and Technology Center used to assist attorneys in unraveling technical information associated with trial work.
His work in the legal field is extensive and renowned, yet more notable is his work with students and young attorneys. His history of mentoring students interested in pursuing the law has included assistance with financial aid, internships and housing for national and international students. It is this passion for sharing knowledge and understanding of the law that led Bell to his newest position as President of the Charleston School of Law in Charleston, South Carolina. His work in environmental law coupled with his love of Southern culture led him to explore opportunities for land development with an emphasis on environmental conservation.
In 2010, he became a partner in Garden & Gun Magazine, LLC; a nationally-recognized Southern lifestyle publication. That partnership, along with the acquisition of an established coastal real estate business, The Litchfield Company, LLC, and the inception of Garden & Gun Land, continues to broaden his environmental pursuits on a national level. Bell is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group with membership limited to 100 of the best plaintiff trial lawyers in the United States. The Boy Scouts of America Coastal Carolina Council and the National Eagle Scout Association recently recognized Bell as a 2018 Outstanding Eagle Scout Award recipient.
A native of Sumter, Bell lives in Georgetown, South Carolina, with his wife, Dawn, and their two children, Jeb and Middleton. Ed volunteers through Duncan United Methodist Church, is a Rotarian, a former Board Member of Richmont University in Atlanta, and has sponsored numerous programs in area hospitals, schools and youth organizations. He is currently the longest serving member on the Board of Directors of TMS Global, an Atlanta-based International Mission Group and has spoken about “cross cultural communications” internationally.
