  • Michelle R. Clark

    I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Nathaniel Smith is an excellent attorney who endeavors to achieve the best results for his clients. He is a hard working ethical attorney who is willing to prepare for trial and research every angle of his client's case. I have litigated cases against Attorney Smith and he is a formidable opponent. Attorney Smith epitomizes the qualities that one should seek when selecting an attorney, as he is honest, tenacious and committed to his clients.
