About our Grandville, MI: office

When John Smietanka entered private practice in 1995 after decades of public service he wanted to develop a firm of lawyers dedicated to solving problems at a reasonable cost.

    A true counsel. More than just an attorney! He has great empathy with client but it does not cloud his best judgement. Available to us 24/7/365. He listens. When others cannot, he makes "it" happen. When not in his area of expertise, he admits it and finds correct counsel for you.

    Excellent with both simple estate issues and the very arcane complex ones that come up in family issues. Her ability to offer custom solutions (not paste and cut) really put us at peace with our estate plan.

    Anne provided excellent counsel on Title IX and Education law after our daughter was sexually assaulted at school. She helped with the our filing of a Title IX complaint with the US Dept. of Education and partnered effectively with the National Women's Law Center to settle the lawsuit filed on behalf our daughter. Anne's hard work will have a lasting impact on Title IX case law in the Federal courts because of a summary judgment related to deliberate indifference that was granted in the courts.

    This is a firm with soul! We have used three of the partners directly and they make a "fighting unit"! We have no more need to travel to Lasalle Street in Chicago when the "Brown Shoe Big Guns" are needed. The job is done correct and prompt. It must be pointed out that final fees have always been under budget.
