About Me

I am a Florida Board Certified Marital & Family Lawyer, and am also admitted in Massachusetts and Georgia.   I have been privileged to have worked with only two firms in my 18 years, both with nationally renowned attorneys (Monroe Inker, now deceased, and Cynthia L. Greene) who have helped to guide me and shape me into the professional and skilled attorney I am.  I am also pleased to serve as Secretary of The Family Law Section of The Florida Bar, where I am able to work towards bettering the lives of Florida's families.  In my free time, I enjoy my work as a Board Member of KidSide Miami, a non-profit agency providing assistance to families involved in the Miami-Dade County Court system.

  • Margarita Arango Moore

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Laura Davis Smith as a fellow lawyer for several years. Laura is brilliant yet completely unassuming. Any client that employs her gets one of the best and most knowable family lawyers in South Florida. She is also an extremely caring person that puts her heart and soul into everything she does and your case will be no different. It is a pleasure to endorse and I do so without any hesitation.
