In 2015, while at Clark University, Mr. Dell was a member of their very successful Mock Trial Team. In 2014, the team earned a bid during the regional intercollegiate mock trial tournament to the sub national tournament held in Philadelphia, P.A. At the sub national tournament, Mr. Dell was recognized and awarded with a Best Witness Award. In 2015, prior to graduation, Mr. Dell and the team earned a bid to the national tournament held in Washington, D.C. The team earned a trophy at that competition for outstanding trial team and finished 4th among twenty-two teams.
During his college years, Mr. Dell became involved in volunteering for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. This disease took the life of his late grandfather, Joseph T. Dell. The mission of the foundation is to find a cure to this insidious illness.
Mr. Dell obtained his Juris Doctor in 2019 from Touro College-Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center. While attending law school, Mr. Dell was awarded with his admission into the Trial Advocacy Practice Society, a law school honor society. In addition, Mr. Dell co-founded and served as the Vice-President of the Tort Law Society. He additionally served as the Vice-President of Phi Alpha Delta, a National law school fraternity.

Mr. Dell was an active member of the Trial Advocacy Practice Society’s trial team. As a member he competed in the American Association for Justice Trial Competition in Kings County, New York in 2019.

Mr. Dell was awarded at graduation from law school for his special service to the public and community; his pro-bono services while a law student serving clients in the Brooklyn Defenders’ Office; his membership in the Trial Advocacy Practice Society, and for his exemplary contributions to the quality of student life at the law school.
Mr. Dell has had the opportunity to work alongside his father since he was a college student. What he has learned from preparing for, and second seating his father on trials is that zealous advocacy requires a relentless commitment to justice, while also maintaining a sense of humility.
