Colin Bell practices bankruptcy law and is an associate attorney with Stewart Law Group. Attorney-rated 10-of-10 by Avvo, Inc., Bell received the Avvo Clients' Choice Award in 2020.
In 2009, Bell was admitted to practice law in Arizona and in the US District Court, District of Arizona and US Bankruptcy Court. Early in his legal career, he spent four-and-a-half years as Deputy County Attorney with the Cochise County Attorney's Office. Bell shifted his practice from prosecutor to criminal defense representation and, soon after, added consumer bankruptcy as a practice area.
Bell represents clients in Chapter 7 Liquidation Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Wage Earner's Bankruptcy proceedings as well as bankruptcy appeals. In his element as a litigator, he is driven to protect his clients in every proceeding, ensuring they receive the full benefit of their legal rights.
A Jason Long Memorial Scholarship recipient (2003), Bell's BA in native studies, political science, and history is from University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada (2005). He received a National Merit Scholarship to attend Western New England University School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts, where he obtained his JD and was the law school graduating class speaker (2008). A moot court competitor and student prosecutor in the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office, it seems Bell was destined to be a top-tier litigator.
As a member of the State Bar of Arizona, Bell is an executive committee member of the Criminal Justice Section and sits on the section’s Future Criminal Practitioner Scholarship Committee.
Bell appreciates the opportunities he has to affect tremendous change in many people's lives by helping them eliminate debt, regain control of their finances, and obtain a much-needed fresh start. Whether the client is facing foreclosure, wage garnishment, repossession, or a lawsuit and needs to file an emergency petition with the US Bankruptcy Court, Bell is prepared to use every tool in the toolbox to get that client immediate debt relief.
