About this office:

Any lawyer can tell you what the law says. But what the law means for you depends on what your goals are. Along with getting to know your particular business, we are diligent students of our client's industries. At the Law Office of Judi Smith, we focus on the bigger picture and then tailor our advice to help you achieve your goals.

For example, as part of our unique brand defense monitoring service, we identified a substantial trademark infringement of one of our non-profit client's major brands. Without addressing the infringement, our client could have been at risk of losing their trademark protection. But our non-profit client operates in a close knit market where an aggressive approach would have reflected poorly on the client's brand. A cease and desist letter was out of the question. We worked with our client and the other party to open a dialog and create a licensing agreement that protected the brand of our client and protected their reputation in the marketplace.

In another case, our client, a software developer, was being sued for allegedly misappropriating trade secrets. Our client was concerned that their competitor was bringing this lawsuit in an effort to get access to their newly developed source code. It was critical that our client's work product not be disclosed to this competitor. Our strong technology background enables us to understand the issues presented in source code related cases at a level most attorneys can't begin to approach. As a result, we took a very aggressive stance at the earliest stage of the litigation. The case against our client was dismissed without disclosure of any source code.

To give you the best legal advice possible, we listen first to understand your business, goals, and context. Then we bring our expertise to the table to help you solve your business problem.

Call the Law Office of Judi Smith to learn how we can put our expertise to work for you.
