Attorney Profile

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Colby Scott Wells is an attorney at David Shapiro Law, PLLC. Providing representation to clients throughout the state, he focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, assisting people who have incurred economic and noneconomic losses as a result of the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities. The types of matters that Mr. Wells has worked on have stemmed from incidents involving truck and other motor vehicle crashes, premises liability, medical malpractice, defective products, and auto-pedestrian accidents.

During his career as a plaintiff's attorney, Mr. Wells has been able to obtain sizable settlements and jury awards on behalf of his clients. Prior to entering private practice, he worked for a well-known insurance company where he handled commercial injury claims, and this experience has allowed him to anticipate the types of tactics that insurance defense attorneys often use during trials. Mr. Wells is admitted to practice before all Arizona state courts.

Mr. Wells majored in marketing as an undergraduate at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, and he received a Bachelor of Science in 2006. After graduation, he was a personal banker at JPMorgan Chase & Co. for more than a year, and he then spent time as an operations manager for a commercial transportation company before he decided to pursue a legal education. Mr. Wells thereupon enrolled at what was then known as Phoenix School of Law, and he served clerkships with a Phoenix law firm as well as with the City of Glendale Prosecutor's Office. He was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2012, and he joined his current firm in June 2018 after working for a large personal injury law firm.
