  • Matthew Edward Williamson

    We've been working together on tax and bankruptcy issues for a few months and I have to say that I am very impressed by Attorney Smith. Just one recent example... he called me on a case that was a combination tax/bankruptcy matter wanting to verify some ideas on finding the best way to help his client. Many attorneys would just have skipped helping the client because it was a complicated matter, but Attorney Smith researched it and wanted to verify that his conclusion was the best and most effective use of the client's resources - his client was in bankruptcy so had limited money (I wrote a manual on tax dispute resolution that he had in his private library) - he had come up with the right solution, which many attorneys would have skipped over. What impressed me was his caring for his client, his understanding of a complicated area of the law and the willingness to put his ego aside and verify he was doing the right thing by his client. In summary - I endorse him.
