Pat Telan is an enthusiastic and competitive attorney with 30 years of trial experience. Prior to joining Bell Legal Group, Pat owned and ran a successful trial law firm in Orlando, Florida, representing hospitals, physicians, businesses, health care workers and individuals in a variety of litigation matters. Pat has lectured locally and nationally on various subjects dealing with medical malpractice litigation and deposition preparation techniques. He holds an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell, a testament to the fact that his peers rate him at the highest level of ethical and professional excellence.

After his graduation from law school in 1992, Pat worked as a Defense lawyer with a focus on civil litigation. As a trial lawyer, Pat has litigated cases across the Southeast U.S. in both Federal and State Courts at both the trial level and appellate level, including Environmental cases, civil rights cases, aviation cases, construction cases and medical malpractice cases. He has litigated cases against some of the largest law firms in the United States. He prides himself on always doing what is best for his client and is always mindful of the financial, mental and emotional impact that litigation has on his clients. Over the past 30 years, Pat has mentored a number of young lawyers who went on to have extremely successful careers of their own.

Outside of work, Pat is a devoted father to Kyle (28) and Abby Ann (25), and loving husband to his high school sweetheart and wife of 32 years, Kirsten. He is a “foodie” who enjoys cooking, adventure travel, physical fitness and all of the outdoor benefits that our wonderful weather in Florida and South Carolina allows.
