I had some pretty severe legal issues and hired a big name lawyer here in town. He was worthless. Then I hired Mr. Smith. Not only did he run circles around my last lawyer, he completely finessed the system, got me minimum consequences for the issues that I had, kept me from getting into additional trouble, and worked legal magic like I have never seen before. I would definitely hire Kurt Smith for any case that he was willing to take for me. He was more than just an attorney for me. He became a friend.
I referred Kurt to a friend of mine that he and his office represented very well. But my review is mainly to tell you I was in Shock and Aww when one day I had to go to Family court and didn't have a lawyer and Kurt saw me sitting there and asked what I was doing and when I explained the story he represented me for free. I couldn't believe it. Never in my life have I ever seen a lawyer do what he did. I can't thank him enough for taking his busy time to help me. Something I will never forget. I want to thank you and let society know - He's a family man himself and has a heart. So when your looking for a great family lawyer I would highly recommend Kurt and his firm. They have great communication skills and stay on top of your case.
DON'T USE THIS ATTORNEY!!! The State of Nevada referred me to Kurt as he was an affordable attorney. I needed someone to represent me in a custody battle. When I met with him for my consultation, he informed me that my case should not cost me more then $4,000. After receiving several bills with outrageous charges, I called to get information on why I was being charged so much. He informed me that they are inflating the price as they are going after my ex wife for my attorney fees. Once the case is closed they will reduce the price down to the quoted price if we don't get approved to have her pay for the fees. Once the case was all set and done we did not get approval to have her pay for the fees but yet he was not a man of his word and did not reduce his charges. So in the end he wants me to pay over $10,000. My ex wife paid her attorney $3,000 to do the same things Kurt did. He is a crocked individual. He has the nerve to charge my account $2,500 to have a fill in attorney and his paralegal defend me at one of the court dates. It is not my fault you decided to take a vacation when I had a court date and I should not be responsible to pay for his mistakes. Key point to this story, DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY AS YOU WILL NOT BE ANYTHING TO HIM BUT A DOLLAR SIGN AND HE WILL TELL YOU ANYTHING TO GET AS MUCH MONEY FROM YOU!!
Mr. Smith and his staff are incredible. Every time I call I am treated like I am the only client. Mr. Smith's professional relationship with the court and my opposing council made me feel confident that I hired the right attorney. I cannot say enough good things about him. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.
Handled an out of state child custody case for me. Was up against a prominant attorney in Las Vegas with much more experience. Mr. Smith came out on top in court 5 times in a row. Was able to restructure and renegotiate an unequitable situation where 2 other attorneys could not. I would use his firm again for another issue. Very personable and likeable and is clear and concise about what the options are. Reasonably priced.
