    Ms. Smith is often disrespectful to opposing counsel and even to the Court. She has a condescending demeanor. Although she is VERY knowledgeable of rules and procedures, she does not have a deep analytical mind. In court she frequently interrupts counsel and even the judge, and makes nonsensical objections just to interrupt the flow of the proceedings and intimidate opposing parties. Essentially, she behaves like a bully, and not a particularly intellectually astute one. Read less
