LaWanda C. Bell – North Carolina Paralegal
LaWanda C. Bell is a native of Clinton, North Carolina. She is married to husband, Curtis, and together they have three children, Zavian, Zaria, and Zaire. LaWanda received her Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Fayetteville State University, Fayetteville, NC. Shortly after graduation, she and her new husband moved to New Jersey. At the onset of her career, she worked several years as a paralegal for two firms. Her longest tenure was with Daniel B. Zonies, Esq. in Cherry Hill, New Jersey where she handled Personal Injury, Municipal, and Worker’s Compensation cases. LaWanda later became employed with the State of New Jersey Judiciary where she worked for over 12 years. Positions held in New Jersey included Administrative Supervisor II of the Superior Court Clerk’s office, Trenton, NJ, where she oversaw Foreclosure and Judgment cases; she was eventually promoted to Assistant Civil Division Manager, Middlesex County Superior Court where she oversaw Civil Law cases. After a total of 21 years in New Jersey, and after all three of her children decided to attend colleges in the south, LaWanda and her husband Curtis returned to North Carolina.
A door immediately opened for LaWanda, and she was offered a position with the Mecklenburg County Clerk’s Office as an Estate Auditor in January of 2019. After more than two years working as an auditor, LaWanda accepted a paralegal position with Orsbon & Fenninger. She is overjoyed to be in this new role as it will allow her the opportunity to serve, connect and help others on a larger, and more personable scale. During her down time, LaWanda loves shopping, listening to music, and spending time with family.
