    • I recommend Jonathan Smith.

    I found attorney Smith online because of his excellent ratings and client reviews. I found out for myself how true they were. He’s a very honest lawyer. He won’t give you anything but reality with your case. You will be privileged if he decides to take your case because you will be in the best hands possible. He’s intelligent, knowledgeable, and he has a heart, empathy, and above all he listens to what you are saying. The day I got injured changed my life. When I continued to have chronic severe migraines and medical bills, I became depressed and unsure of my future and my quality of life. Mr. Smith’s diligence saw to it that I am compensated so that all of my medical and physical needs will be taken care of. On the first day of my trial the defense offered me $25,000.00 to settle. Mr. Smith’s brilliance and knowledge in the courtroom helped the jury see the truth and see how much I continue to suffer. The jury awarded me over $900,000.00. I was also impressed with his staff. Kim and Linda are detailed, courteous, and knowledgeable about what is going on and what they need to do. Mr. Smith and his office staff work together like a well organized machine. They are like a dream team.

    Johnathan Scott Smith did an excellent job of representing me in my particular case.
    I was kept informed and any questions or issues I had were addressed quickly and accurately.
    I highly recommend Jonathan. He did a great job in my case and should I need the services of an attorney, he will be the first person I will call.

    • I recommend Jonathan Smith.

    Attorney Jonathan smith recently defended me in a serious traffic case that carries jail time. Needless to say that for the months leading to the case my whole life was turned upside down with endless worries and concern about my future, my professional license and making a living for my family, every step of the way Mr Smith explained the steps/process and at least alleviated the fear of the unknown. On the day of the court trial, I knew I was in good hands when you saw the respect and hand shakes he received from ather attorneys, the assistant DA, and even a comforting smile from the judge. When you need a true professional who knows his way around the court system then he is your man. Needless to say my outcome was beyond my expectation, and I truly beleive his representation shed my whole case in a different light. When you are in serious trouble you really need to bring in the big guns, and Mr Smith is truly a heavy weight in the maryland justice system!

    Ed--When life takes an unexpected turn and you need legal representation, Jonathan Smith is the one to bring calm, clarity and peace of mind to a situation. I recommend Mr. Smith without reservation because of his knowledge and expertise of the law. He approaches every issue in a logical and clear manner so that you, his client are fully briefed on your legal rights and where you stand. He under promises and over delivers and that is what you want when you feel the proverbial walls closing in on you. His 30 years experience is confidence-inspiring, but more importantly he believes in his clients and does his best to get the outcome the you want. Mr. Smith, thank you and your wonderful staff for taking care of me and my family during the darkest hour of our lives. I can not express my appreciation enough. When your life and reputation hangs in the balance, do not cut corners and take the least expensive way out as it my cost you in the end. His legal service and experience is second to none and well worth the investment.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Sometimes the police and department of social services run good, decent, loving families through the wringer, turning their lives upside down and casting a pall of fear over them. Thank God we live in a country where everyone accused of a crime is entitled to an attorney. It is a privilege to fight for people against the sometimes unchecked power of the state.

    Professional, attentive, honest and driven is what comes to mind when I think of Jonathan Smith and his staff. I was in car accident in March 2012 and needed legal representation. Mr. Smith and I had our first consultation in March 2012, and I received my settlement May 2012. Need I say more! He is honest, dedicated with a quick turnaround.

      Most people involved in car accidents don't know how to navigate the minefields insurance companies erect to avoid paying people restitution for their losses. We have been handling these claims for decades, and know how to fight hard for people who have been injured to get their medical bills paid, their lost income compensated, and return their lives to normal.

    Mr. Smith knows the law and his knowledge enables him to do his work with confidence. He was well prepared for the case having read in detail everything I sent him. He was better prepared than the opposition and more knowledgeable about the law than the judge. Mr. Smith conducted himself professionally and ethically.

    Mr. Smith is an exceptional attorney. He is very professional, knowledgeable and his attention to detail is unbelievable . He took control of my situation, put me at ease and brought the truth out during my trial. He is very straight forward and honest. You will not find a better attorney anywhere. His staff exhibits the same qualities and helps make a difficult time less stressful.

      Lawyer Comment:

      My focus always has been, "preparation is the key to success." Paul was unjustly accused of terrible allegations, and quickly found himself arrested and in jail waiting for trial. First, we obtained bail so he could have his freedom back. Next, we conducted an extensive investigation of the charges. We were successful in having many of the charges dismissed before trial as legally improper. Finally, we took the case to trial and fought hard. The jury saw the truth, finding him not guilty of all charges. This was a just, and fantastic, end to this good man's nightmare. We were privileged to be a part of righting this injustice.

      We trust our doctors and manufacturers of medical devices to help us get better. The last thing we expect, or deserve, is to have them harm us and make our health worse! Unfortunately, sometimes that happens. When it does, we have the right hold them accountable.
