I was most impressed with Ariana and her devotion to my case. She was very understanding; kept in contact with me; let me know progress and what to expect at each appearance. My case was dismissed thanks to her work, research, papers, etc. Even the judge complimented her on her work (and also stated "as usual"). I would highly recommend Ariana. I have a close friend that is a client of hers at the moment, and I trust that outcome will be as good as mine was.
As I recently found myself in a precarious situation with the law, I am thankful that I had Ariana at my side throughout the whole process. She was thorough about gathering information on my case, and very responsive to my questions. She made the whole process of going to court, and standing before a judge, as painless as possible. She was knowledgeable in her area of law, which gave me a sense of ease that I was in good care. She knew what she was doing, explaining flaws in the DA's official complaint against me, and outlining our defense strategy. In the end, my case was thrown out, and the judge issued a dismissal. I am confident that Ariana's future as a defense attorney is bright. She is an outstanding professional, working with an outstanding firm, Raiser & Kenniff, PC.
Earlier this Summer, I was cited for a moving violation. I contacted Ariana C. Smith for assistance in disputing the ticket and she accompanied me on my court date at the DMV. She answered any questions I had about the process very effectively and was very professional with me and while in front of the judge and policeman. We were successful and I highly recommend Ariana C. Smith to anyone requiring legal assistance!
Ariana handled my case with a high degree of professionalism. She made herself available and accessible to me for questions/comments as well as regularly followed up with me regarding the matter. She understood my situation soundly and was quick thinking while representing me in court to the point where the judge took notice of her skill set and softened his demeanor towards the courtroom while addressing her. Ariana made her legal services worth more than what I payed which translates to her being more than just effective but also highly efficient.
A very formidable characteristic of Ms. Smith's in addition to her humility and confidence, is her ability to personalize her relationship with clients. I watched her interaction with a potential client (who witnessed her in action during my hearing and approached her thereafter) and noted that she has exceptionally developed soft skills (people skills) that truly relay her ability to represent any and everybody with the upmost respect.
Should I or anyone that I know need legal representation in the future, I will definitely be calling upon Ariana Smith.
Ariana C. Smith is an awesome attorney.
When I met Ms. Smith for the first time it immediately became apparent that she truly cared about me and my situation. It was such a good feeling to know that my attorney was someone who had a genuine concern for me. She had such a pleasant demeanor that I quickly felt a real sense of support and my anxiety level lowered. I knew I was in good hands.
Ms. Smith was extremely helpful as she represented me in court. She was very professional and worked very hard on my behalf. She kept in touch with me and informed me on how the case was progressing. She definitely fought hard for me. Due to her persistence and resolve she was able to bring about the outcome I was hoping for.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ariana Smith. I am so very thankful for her and truly appreciate all that she has done for me. As I mentioned, she is awesome!
