From the moment i first spoke to Marci i knew using this firm was the right choice. Mr Smith handled all of the litigation from the moment we hired him. Marci was first class and neverone time did she ever not answer the phone when we called. I cant stress enough on how this one phone call changed my life for the better. Trust Smith Law they will exceed your expectations.

Under the circumstances, Mr. Smith was highly personable, and also very professional. He listened intently, gave sound advice, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice.

We hired a bankruptcy lawyer in NJ. We were told based on our situation bankruptcy was not a solution and that the matter could not be settled for less than 125k for a debt of greater than 300k. Several attorneys we met also agreed with this assessment. As you can imagine, our situation looked very ugly.
Upon this news we decided to explore other options. As I mentioned, we met with several attorneys but none seem to offer viable creative solutions that Chris Smith ("Chris") from Smith Law provided. His resume (Harvard Grad- BA & Georgetown Law- JD, Consumer Board Certified, Successful Litigations, etc...) speaks for itself. Many attorneys have such resumes, but you ask what separates him from other intelligent attorneys. The answer is simple, none give you the personal care, comfort and support that Chris brings to the table and that is what sold us on him.
To further highlight this situation, during talks with Chris we were served by a processor that filed a lawsuit in Florida to collect on a deficient. Our situation got even uglier with a 20 day notice to respond. If we did not respond a judgement would be granted against us. That evening that we were served our lives were turned upside down and there was only one lawyer, Chris Smith, that was readily available and provided us the support and comfort that we needed to get through that night. Not to mention Chris was on vacation with family but he found a way to be there for us during this trying time.
Chris Smith was referred to us by a friend and he was the best investment I have ever made. Not only did he settle our case for pennies on the dollar (contrary to what other attorneys believed) but considering all the other different alternatives that we faced it was Chris that saved our family and kept us together. This was an ultimate game of chess with Chris ultimately checkmating the creditor within two to three moves. This was not a drawn out affair as we had originally expected. I can assure you from my experience that you will not find a better attorney!!

We have total trust in his advice. We have recommended Chris to many of our friends and family.

We used this law firm for a bankruptcy. Above average when it comes to customer service especially appreciated in this frustrating circumstance. Would highly recommend them, his assistant Marci is super. She is very knowledgeable and great with communication.

I live in Chicago and had an unfortunate circumstance arise with some family property in Florida. I was hesitant to pursue this because I felt I would have to travel to Florida and that was not possible at the time. I took a chance and called Chris Smith which was recommended to me by an attorney referral service. The first time I talked to Chris he put my mind at ease. He was very knowledgeable about the process and obstacles the my case would have to go through. Although I would say my case was difficult, Chris pushed forward from every angle possible to get our desired result. He always answered my questions and was prompt in doing so. His office staff is very professional, helpful and kind. I would highly recommend Chris Smith to anyone that is in need of an attorney. His honesty, professionalism, and commitment to his clients is very hard to come by these days.

I have worked with Chris and his paralegal, Marci for approximately 3 years now. They are incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and very easy to work with and communicate with.
In my business I always have clients who need the advice and direction from an attorney. I've referred clients to Chris' office having confidence that they will receive good advice and be well taken a care of.
In the real estate business you typically have the concern of a client you refer to an attorney being steered away to another agent. I've never had that concern with Marci or Chris. In fact, the past 4 clients I've sent there have taken the time to call me back and thank me for the referral.

The firm was great to work with and very patient with my lack of patience! I enjoyed working with them and appreciated the professional demeanor at all times.

The first attorney I spoke with that actually laid it all out for me in a scenario I could live with. I had interviewed several other attorneys around town asking two basic questions and he was the only one knowledgeable enough to answer them with a direct and honest answer. I knew right at that moment this was the attorney for me. Plus his paralegal, Marci, was absolutely on point along with Attorney Michael Schuchat, who was a big help at my hearing with the trustee of the court.
