The Law Office of Jonathan Bell maintains an office in Miami, Florida to offer services to Federal Employees. As a Federal Employee Attorney, he and his staff have vast knowledge and a unique ability to represent Federal Employees in any setting, including EEO cases at the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), MSPB (Merit Systems Protection Board), proposed adverse or disciplinary actions, disability retirement applications through OPM (Office of Personnel Management) and OWCP (Federal Employees Worker's Compensation) matters.
The Federal Employee Lawyers at this firm have represented residents of Florida that have worked for USDA, DHS-ICE, DOI, DHS-TSA (FAM) and many others. We recently represented a Miami resident proposed to be removed for misconduct by successfully arguing the merits of the case, resulting in the deciding official mitigating the penalty and saving the federal employees job. The Miami based Federal Employee came to us with great anxiety and fear, realizing that 20 + years of Federal Service may come to an abrupt end. Understanding the severity of the circumstance, we immediately secured an extension to respond the proposal and requested materials relied upon to support the proposal. Subsequently, we secured witness statements, obtained medical evidence to support an affirmative defense and submitted an Affidavit on behalf of our client together with an Attorney Legal Brief. Consequently, we saved the Federal Employee’s Job and livelihood. We take great pride in this type of achievement and always pursue the best possible result.
Another Florida resident sought our expertise in his EEOC claim. Again, we successfully secured a settlement of over $100,000 in an EEO case and gave him the opportunity to seek disability retirement. This employee was continuously harassed by his agency because he suffered from a mental disability (PTSD). After intense litigation and rigorous depositions, we secured crucial discovery that caused the Agency to reconsider going to trial. Shortly before the commencement of trial, the case settled. If not for the proactive perseverance of our firm’s zealous pursuit of discovery, the documents would have never been secured and the case would not have settled. Notably, as stated by many clients, Mr. Bell’s “no nonsense” approach while conducting depositions and persistent lawyering with the Agency Representative made them realize that his clients will not be intimidated.

A center of culture, commerce, finance, medicine, art, entertainment and fashion, the city of Miami stands on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, its skyline cutting one of the most impressive silhouettes in the United States.
Miami has the unique distinction among major U.S. cities of being founded by a woman, Julia Tuttle, who persuaded a railroad tycoon to extend the Florida East Coast Railway to this promising area in the late 1800s, and so became known as the “Mother of Miami.”
It is commonly known as The Magic City because of the staggering growth it cultivated in its first one-hundred years in existence—winter visitors frequently commented that the city seemed to flourish each year “like magic”. After booming in the ‘20s and then again during WWII, the city experienced an influx of Cubans seeking refuge during the rise of Fidel Castro, and this growth was central to shaping the rich culture of Miami as we know it today.
Miami is a vital center of industry and commerce, home to one of the busiest points of entry in the U.S., and the Port of Miami is an important marine gateway, particularly for trade with Central and South America. It is also the largest cruise ship hub in the United States.
A number of major U.S. corporations are based in the Miami area, including over 1,400 multinational companies (due to the city’s location near Latin America), and it has emerged as one of the country’s principal financial centers.
Pristine beaches, dazzling architecture, a myriad of festivals and numerous conventions draw over 38 million visitors annually, making Miami International Airport Florida’s largest. Glamorous hotels, world-class dining and shopping can be enjoyed here, as well as theatre, museums, music and a variety of water sport activities. The balance of a wonderful climate, cosmopolitan amenities and cultural flair make Miami a popular destination for travelers from around the globe.
