  • Terry Clayton Smith

    I endorse this lawyer. We first met when we worked together on some real esate matters in connectiion with an estate planning matter. I learned that he is a lawyer sound on the law and with extraordinarily good judgment. He is tenacious and works harder for his clients than most lawyers I know. He undertook a very controversial criminal defense matter and guided his client to a beneficial resolution. George lives in a small town and conducts a very diverse practice. He is an excellent country lawyer in the best sense of that phrase. If I needed a lawyer my first choice on most matters would be George.
