Nicholas Bell on Winning Team for American Bar Association Most Outstanding Public Service Project

Nicholas J. Bell, Esquire
Nick Bell was part of the Allegheny County Bar Association Bar Leadership Initiative Class of 2012-13 that won first place in the American Bar Association’s national Award of Achievement for Most Outstanding Single Project - Service to the Public contest.  The American Bar Association announced the winners at its Annual Conference in San Francisco.

For their community project, the class addressed the growing issue of students texting while driving, as well as drunk driving.  To reach a large number of high school students with their message, the class sought assistance from UNITE, a national health and wellness organization and selected their “Arrive Alive Tour” to showcase at two of Allegheny County’s largest high schools.  The program shows students how they are impaired if they drink or text while driving by giving them a virtual reality headset to wear in an actual vehicle.

Meyer, Unkovic & Scott was pleased to be a gold sponsor of the program at both high schools.
Nick is an associate and member of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group.  He represents clients in a variety of complex commercial and business disputes in state and federal courts.  Prior to joining the firm, he served as a law clerk to Judge Joy Flowers Conti of the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

Nick exemplifies a commitment to his community and profession as an associate member of the W. Edward Sell American Inn of Court and serves as a member of the Executive Committee and Co-Chair of the Programming Committee.  He also is a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association, and American Bar Association.  As active member of the Allegheny County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, Nick currently serves on Council and as Chair of the education committee.  He is serving on the Host Committee for the 2014 ABA YLD Conference that will take place in Pittsburgh, PA.

Nick earned his law degree from Duquesne University School of Law in 2009.  While in law school, he participated in the joint degree program and received a master of business administration from Duquesne University Graduate School of Business in 2010.  He attended The Catholic University of America and received his bachelor of arts in Political Science in 2006.  He resides in Squirrel Hill with this wife and children.
