  • Emily Broadhead Smoak

    Mr. Laskoff was my mentor for seven years+. He is an incomparable trial lawyer and force in every way. He is a fighter, but knows when to settle. He works harder than anyone I have ever known for his clients. HIs outcomes speak for themselves. He has been noted as American's Top 100 Lawyers. That says it all. I learned nearly everything I know about how to practice with a "fire in my belly" from Mr. Laskoff and for that I am forever grateful. You cannot go wrong with this man who will have your back - always. I still refer cases to him and him to me. He continues to be my mentior and keeps me humble. He is always learning, always studiing, always getting better, stronger, sharper, for all of his client's benefit and mine. He knows how to run an A+ lawfirm that is ready for anything. He and his wife are dedicated to always improving the services they provide. Mrs. Laskoff is a formibable force in her own right. Cheers my mentor, and I am proud to say, my friend. Emily Smoak
