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 a lawyer. Daniel decided to become an attorney because he enjoys taking on challenges and has a heart for seeking justice.
The Obligation to Help Others
Daniel is a bilingual attorney, and serving diverse communities is important to him. He previously worked for the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, helping children 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 T 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 that he gave me.” Daniel used his opportunity to become a lawyer, and uses that knowledge to 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. Daniel was born in Acapulco, Mexico, and his parents brought him to the U.S. when he was six. Before joining James Scott Farrin, Daniel managed the personal injury and worker’s compensation departments at a law firm.
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 at Campbell Law School’s Business Law Clinic. While in college and during his breaks, Daniel worked as a flooring installer.
A simple quote that motivates him is “you reap what you sow.” 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.”
