Steven K. Bell

Steven K. Bell, Esquire graduated from Nova Southeastern University Sheppard Broad College of Law. While still a law student Mr. Bell began his legal career as a legal intern at the Broward County Public Defender’s Office. As a legal intern, Mr. Bell gained trial experience in both felony and misdemeanor cases.

As a law student, he was one of the few elite students elected to the Nova Southeastern University Law Review. As a member of the law review, Mr. Bell contributed scholarly articles in the area of criminal law.

In 2004 Mr. Bell graduated from Nova Southeastern University Sheppard Broad College of Law Magna Cum Laude, an achievement reserved for law students graduating in the top 3 percent of the class, and was granted membership into the Order of Barrister, an honor bestowed upon only 9 members of the graduating class.

As criminal law and family law matters often intersect, Mr. Bell’s experience in criminal law proves invaluable to the clients of the family division of Quality Family Law. He has years of experience representing individuals facing criminal charges for domestic violence and violation of a protection order. He has also handled hundreds of cases representing both petitioners and respondents in protective order hearings.
