J. Taylor Bell

J. Taylor Bell joined The Jeffcoat Firm in October 2017 after working for six years as an attorney in the Richland County Public Defender’s Office in Columbia.

A North Carolina native, Mr. Bell received a B.S. degree in business administration at the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2007. After working for less than a year in the financial services industry, he realized that he wanted to make a career change.

“I realized that I wanted to help people and not corporations,” he says.

Education & Professional Background


He enrolled at the University of South Carolina School of Law and worked throughout his time there in the Public Defender’s Office. He received his J.D. in 2011.

Working in the Public Defender’s Office, Bell had the opportunity to gain courtroom experience very quickly. “I really saw the inner working of the South Carolina judicial system,” he recalls. “I was in court just about every day.”

The Jeffcoat Firm

Bell has represented more than 1,000 clients in both General Sessions Court and Magistrate’s Court. In joining The Jeffcoat Firm, he is bringing his extensive courtroom skills to benefit the firm’s clients. Among his duties in the firm, he handles cases involving professional licensure, representing professionals before various South Carolina licensing boards.

Bell lives in Lexington with his wife, Kiersten; son, Tanner; and dog, Brodie. He enjoys spending time with his family and fishing for stripers on waterways throughout South Carolina.
