Our guiding vision as a firm is to foster an environment where every individual feels respected, valued and has the opportunity to succeed — building a rich work life that contributes to and enhances life beyond the office. Behind every great firm is a great team.
The Bell Nunnally team works together with one overriding goal in mind: to exceed our clients’ expectations. To attain this goal, we focus on recruiting and retaining attorneys and staff members who share this common vision. Just as we respect the individuality of our clients, we respect the individuality of our employees.
Named a “Top Place to Work” by Dallas Morning News every year since 2020, we pride ourselves in providing a welcoming and rewarding workplace for every member of the firm. We attribute the success of our work environment to our team approach, respect for individual strengths and perspectives, excellent training programs and overall knowledge of the legal industry. Our longstanding employee retention rate demonstrates the power of creating a positive work environment.

“I am incredibly fortunate to be part of the Bell Nunnally team. At Bell Nunnally, I work on complex, meaningful cases for great clients. The firm also provides me the support and resources necessary to develop my own clients and build a book of business. Most firms would make you pick between billable work and business development; not Bell Nunnally.”J. Reid BurleyAssociate

This enables each of us to provide excellent client service and still have a life outside of work. I would not want to build a practice anywhere else.”Alana K. AckelsPartner
