In Memorial: William Harrell
William “Bill” Harrell Jr., an advocate for civil rights and long-time ally of the Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA) lost his battle with cancer and passed away on Saturday, October 14th. He was 70 years old.
Family, honor and tradition were all important to Bill Harrell, the founder and senior partner of the well-regarded firm of Harrell & Harrell P.A., a personal injury law firm with 18 attorneys and 100 employees that has served the region for more than 25 years.
He was born Oct. 18, 1946, in Lake City and followed in his father’s footsteps attending the University of Florida on a football scholarship.
His wife of nearly 20 years, Renee Daigle Harrell, served as our Board President and their firm, Harrell & Harrell, has been a consistent JALA and NFMLP supporter over the years.
JALA would like to present our deep condolences to the passing away of a highly respected attorney and prominent supporter of the Jacksonville Community.
