Extremely practical lawyer who took the time to understand our problem and find a long-term solution, not a temporary fix. He was a powerful presence in the courtroom too.

My wife and I were referred to him by another lawyer, and now we can see why. He did an outstanding job preparing us and helping us to understand the "legal process" we were involved with. We had a great result and were very impressed with his services. This is a very skillful lawyer.

From seeing Mr. Smith's work for other clients, I knew that he had a command of the subject matter in a case like mine. At our trial, he knew as much about the science and medicine as the doctors did, and sometimes more. I was impressed by the way he could make the other side's experts agree with him and the way he made very complex medical concepts easy for the jury (and the other lawyers) to understand.

Mr. Smith is the attorney to hire if you want the best legal representation possible. He is experienced, intelligent, knows the law and the system, thinks on his feet, and confidently takes control of the situation. He is very proactive, always thinks a step ahead and aggressively protects the rights of his client.

Mr. Smith handled my case in the most professional manner possible. In truth, before every hearing and response required by me from the court, Mr. Smith was prompt and thorough in advising me. His knowledge and expertise and honesty in advising me about my case inspired confidence.

Extremely knowledgable and straight to the point. I was put at ease that he and his staff were on top of my case, and was very satisfied with the outcome.

I could not have asked for better legal service. Mr. Smith went out of his way to help me in every situation I ever needed his services for. He always returned my calls promptly when I needed his assistance and took care of everything for me.

Mr. Smith was completely in control of what was happening in my case. He told me every step of the way what to worry about and what not to. Straight-up, no-nonsense, a real professional.
