Qualification(s): LLB, BIR
David Bell is an Associate based in Maurice Blackburn's Mackay office.
He holds degrees in Law and International Relations from Bond University. He completed his legal education at the Queensland University of Technology and was admitted to practice in 2011.
David is driven by the belief that everyone should be entitled to a 'fair go' in life. Since joining the firm in 2010, he has fought for his clients in a variety of compensation claims. Among them, he has acted for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. David is specially trained in trauma-informed practice which ensures he works with clients to access justice in a way that recognises the complex trauma they have suffered.
'We all deserve protection from the effects of injury, both physical and psychological. A person can be left with severe, lasting damage to his/her quality of life. It is a privilege to stand with my clients and pursue meaningful redress through the legal process.'
David enjoys engaging with his community and has volunteered at community legal centres throughout his career, including Caxton Legal Centre and the Suncoast Community Legal Service. He is a proud supporter of the Sunshine Coast Access Advisory Network ('SCAAN').
In his spare time, he plays football for the Nambour Blues and is occasionally called upon as player advocate at match review panels.
