About Me

Gary W. Smith, a native of Atlanta, is the founding member and senior attorney of Attorneys at LawSmith. Mr. Smith established Attorneys at LawSmith upon the principles that legal representation is a way to care for and minister to people in need and that every client deserves to be well represented and treated as a member of the client family.


Mr. Smith has represented clients for over thirty years in all types of legal matters. His current practice focuses on personal injury matters, including car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, medical malpractice, workers compensation, premises liability, slip and falls, and wrongful death.


The firm has been working with clients since the fall of 2009, when attorney Gary W. Smith, who was admitted to practice in 1974, began practicing law full-time again after ten years of focusing on fewer clients and working as an ordained Christian minister. Matthew Michaud joined the practice in April 2011 and Billy Kennedy soon followed in June 2011.


 


Together, the attorneys believe in a philosophy of helping others.


 


All the attorneys at LawSmith take the time in consultation to explain the anatomy of a lawsuit and how to tell if a claim is viable in court. We believe that informed, confident clients have a better chance of obtaining successful legal results and finding peace in the aftermath of an accident.
