About Our Firm

Competence

When you hire a lawyer, you should expect the lawyer to do the job right. We will do everything in our power to see your matter is handled properly. It is our primary goal to help you resolve your legal matter favorably, economically, efficiently, and professionally. If we cannot help in your legal matter, we will try to point you to someone who can.

Compassion

When someone seeks out a lawyer, it can be one of the most difficult times in his or her life. One of the things good lawyers do is help a client move on from difficult times by helping to resolve the client’s legal issues. However you have been injured or wronged, we want to help.

Honesty

We want to do everything to be the opposite of the “shady lawyer” stereotype. When you seek the assistance of The Smith Law Office, we will be up-front with you about whether we believe you have a claim. We will be upfront about the costs and potential costs. If you agree to hire our firm, everything about our agreement will be in writing. We will deal honestly with the parties and attorneys on the opposing side as well. Where some lawyers believe that acting in a sneaky way will gain them an edge, we believe quite the opposite. When an opponent knows they are dealing with someone whom they can trust, your matter gets settled more favorably and efficiently.

It is important to us, not only to be good lawyers, but good people. We also want to represent good people who are proud to have us representing them.
