Attorney Daniel Bello

Daniel Bello grew up seeing the James Scott Farrin ads on TV. It never occurred to him he’d end up working here, or that he would even become an attorney. Daniel was born in Acapulco, Mexico and came over with his parents when he was just 6 years old. He assumed he might eventually work for his dad’s flooring company in Raleigh.

While working as an ads salesman in college, though, he kept getting the same advice from his attorney clients: go to law school. He decided to take that advice, seeing it as an opportunity to push himself and help people in need.

“Being a lawyer is almost a superpower, in a way. You have knowledge that can make a big difference in people’s lives.”

The Obligation to Help Others

Being a bilingual attorney and serving diverse communities is important to Daniel. He previously worked for the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, helping minor clients seek asylum under federal immigration laws. After that, Daniel joined Legal Aid of North Carolina as part of their Farmworkers Unit. There, he fought on behalf of abused farm workers seeking visas, green cards, and monetary compensation after being subjected to labor trafficking.

Helping people is something that drives Daniel daily. He was taught to be that way by his dad, who has always been his role model. “My father would be a great lawyer,” said Daniel. “He just didn’t have the same opportunities.” Daniel used his opportunity to become a lawyer, and uses that knowledge to create opportunities and seek justice for people faced with trying circumstances.

Building Relationships With Clients

For many pre-law school jobs, Daniel worked and managed in the customer service industry. He understands the value of communicating with others and building strong relationships with partners as you pursue a common goal.

The foundation for these relationships is trust and honesty. “I don’t believe in sugarcoating the truth. Clients will always get complete transparency.”

Taking On All Challenges

Daniel is never scared to tackle a challenge, and that’s reflected in the different kinds of work experience he has. Before joining James Scott Farrin, Daniel worked at a busy law office, managing their personal injury and workers’ compensation departments. In addition to these primary practice areas, Daniel has a background in traffic law, family law, as a hospital billing and services negotiator, and as a legal advisor to corporate clients.

A simple quote that motivates him is “seek and ye shall find.” He believes that only by pushing yourself and working hard can you accomplish great things. This philosophy certainly applies to fighting for clients during a time of stress and need. “When you’re building a client’s case, you have to try to leave no stone unturned. They’re counting on you.”
