Verity Gentry Bell
Dedicated Shreveport Attorney
Verity Gentry Bell has forged a reputation as one of Shreveport's most dedicated and trusted legal counselors. Handling cases across the criminal defense, personal injury, and family law practice areas, she brings compassionate and effective advocacy to her clients' needs and ensures that the rights and interests are thoroughly asserted both in and outside the courtroom.
The daughter of a teacher and newspaper reporter, Ms. Bell was inspired at an early age to help those in less fortunate circumstances. That passion led her to Loyola University College of Law New Orleans, where she not only earned her Juris Doctor, but served as the Substance and Citation Editor for the Maritime Law Journal and became a member of the prestigious St. Thomas More Inn of Court.
As part of her studies, she also served as legislative intern for Senator Mary Landrieu in Washington DC and a legal intern in the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office, gaining valuable legal experience in both positions. After passing the bar, she joined the Orleans Public Defenders, where she represented defendants throughout every stage of litigation, including evidence and bond hearings, Fourth and Fifth Amendment litigation regarding admissibility of physical evidence, and more.
Ms. Bell would go on to work for several other prominent Louisiana law firms, where she not only continued to represent criminal defendants, but also accident victims in injury claims, and individuals and families in divorce matters.
Now the founder of her own firm, Ms. Bell continues to prove herself an effective, exacting legal counselor and compassionate advocate for her clients. She is known for her vigorous approach to pre-litigation and stewarded one of the only cases in Louisiana to utilize expert testimony to shed light on the unreliability of eyewitness identifications. She is dedicated to applying a personalized, attentive approach to the work that she does and continues to find the relationships she builds with her clients one of the most rewarding aspects of her profession.
