Jamie Bell comes from an extensive legal background and has long held an interest in upholding the Constitution of the United States and those who defend it. As an attorney at Berry Law, she lays the groundwork for Veterans appealing their VA disability decisions.
“Helping Veterans get their disability benefits is valuable work. The system is set up in a way that can be confusing. Veterans often aren’t aware of the requirements of the VA, and an attorney or advocate can encourage the VA to be more helpful than they may have been otherwise.”
Bell takes pride in a professional history working with people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences across the nation. Her ability to empathize with any situation allows Jamie to immerse herself in each client’s circumstances. She fights every battle for justice as if it were her own.
“I want to know my clients’ stories so I can better understand how to help them.”
Jamie studied at Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts before attending law school at Creighton University School of Law. She received her Juris Doctor with honors and was recognized as a CALI Award recipient in Legal Research & Writing, Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, and Federal Habeas Corpus. Bell was also a member of Law Ambassadors, Phi Alpha Delta, and Delta Sigma Nu, and competed in the National Criminal Justice Trial competition.
Jamie knows that the benefits appeals process can be a marathon and approaches her work with a methodical and determined resolve, preferring to view potential obstacles not as setbacks, but from a positive viewpoint.
“I’m a lift-oriented person and look to find the issue on which I can affect change immediately. I like to focus on what we can do right now, and on how to deal with what’s coming next.”
During her spare time, Bell can be found crafting, quilting, crocheting, and playing with her Cocker Spaniel-Yorkie, Zoey.
