I've always believed you can think positive just as well as you can think negative.

Rita S. Bell

Rita Bell is a paralegal in our intellectual property practice group known for her reliability and experience – and for sharing in a good laugh with her teammates. She attended Los Angeles Mission College.

Early in her career, Rita worked for an inspiring County Counsel who encouraged her to go back to school and seek a promotion, which led to the path she is on today as a paralegal. In her work, she enjoys the many clients who come to our firm new to business, or new to  expanding their successful businesses, so that they now need to protect their intellectual property, but it's often a foreign process. She finds it gratifying to guide them through the trademark registration process painlessly and efficiently.

To unwind, Rita enjoys evening walks through her downtown Fresno neighborhood with her husband. She gives back to our community by volunteering with community groups Fresno Filmworks, a 501(c)(3) organization, Fresno Center for Nonviolence, a 501(c)(3) organization, and Earth Day Fresno.
