    After working with Mr. Smart on a case involving a mutual client, I can comfortably say that Mr. Smart is a top-notch real estate attorney. Mr. Smart is beyond dedicated to his client's and tenaciously fights for what he believes to be right. Based my first-hand experience, I enthusiastically endorse Mr. Smart.
