History of Bell Law Firm
Dick Bell was born on a cotton farm in Eupora, Mississippi in 1909. Though he worked on farms continuously while he attended school, he was graduated as the valedictorian of Eupora High School. With virtually no money, but with a determination to obtain a college education, he hitchhiked to Norman and tried out for the Sooner Baseball Team coached by L. Dale Mithcell.
At OU he was a standout on the baseball team, active in student life and an excellent student. After his graduation in 1932, he played briefly for a semi-professional baseball team but had to give up his career after suffering a serious injury while doing oilfield work. This accident left him with permanent injuries to his hip.
Some observers felt that his personal experience and the failure of the company to help provide medical care contributed to his life long sympathy for the underdog and his passionate representation of injured workers.
He returned to the University of Oklahoma College of Law and completed his law degree in 1935. He opened his law office in Seminole, Oklahoma in the same year and practiced there for over 50 years.
Dick Bell was active in politics all of his life and served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives from Seminole Country during the administration of Governor Leon C. Phillips.
Bell was known as one of the state's most eloquent orators and colorful trial lawyers who made memorable closing arguments to the jury. He had one of the state's largest practices in the field of workers' compensation. He made a dramatic impact as he entered the courthouse with his walking stick, rumpled shirt and hat, and his tie slightly out of place.
Bell paid for countless numbers of young people to attend college. He was known across the state for helping those in need. He was especially dedicated to encouraging students and to providing opportunities for the young. As he achieved professional and financial success, he never forgot the struggles of his youth and never lost his compassion for those in difficult circumstances.
Dick Bell died on December 17, 1987 after a courageous battle with cancer. Many saw his death as the passing of an era. He never avoided taking a stand even when it embroiled him in controversy. Above all, he never ignored a cry for help. He was determined that the least powerful among us would have powerful and effective legal representation.
