5.0 stars 7 totalReview David Smith
After a big name law firm messed up a legal situation where my elderly parents were being sued, we hired Dave to unravel and resolve the debacle. Dave came up with a resolution we could live with so my mom didn't have to go through anymore unnecssary heartache. Dave didn't "lawyer" up the case and if anyone has had a bad attorney, you know what I am talking about. He knows the law but he has common sense too. He didn't talk us in circles or come up with crazy ways to drag things out for the sake of running up fee's - he did his job and did it well. My mother, who was caring for my dad with dementia, was incredibly fragile and Dave treated her with the utmost respect and care throughout the case.
Calm, clear, and concise. That is how I would describe my experience with The Smith Firm, P.C. David Smith breaks down your legal concerns, offers workable scenarios and helps guide you through the matter at hand. I received great insight into my legal situation and was given good direction as to how to solve the matter moving forward. Legal matters are never pleasant, but David and his team made it far less stressful and definitely manageable.
David has handled all legal needs for our LLC, from assisting with the formation, to contracts and general legal expertise. He has an impressive resume, having worked at the big city firms and is not afraid to take on the most complicated of cases. But, most impressive is his effort to have direct communication with clients. He always responds in a timely manner. And, during meetings or calls, David has the talent of making you feel that your case is his most important. If you are looking for a lawyer you can fully trust to handle your legal needs in a professional manner with excellent results, I would fully recommend David Smith.

I have worked with Dave since I started my own business about 6 years ago. I don't really use the word genius lightly but this lawyer is hands down a genius. I have referred many clients to him over the years and he has never disappointed. You definitely cannot go wrong choosing this lawyer.

Pacific West Bank uses Dave Smith for much of our legal work. Some of that work entails commercial collections, property foreclosures and filing lawsuits. Dave and his legal assistant Wendy are very quick to respond to the Bank's needs and are always open to all kinds of legal questions. Dave's office is only a few blocks away from the Bank and a very informal relationship has been developed over the years. We can drop into Dave's office unannounced and leave documents with Wendy or Dave anytime. In addition, Wendy is frequently in the Bank delivering documents. This professional informality allows the Bank to respond to our legal situations quickly. As a Chief Credit Officer, I have worked with other attorneys before from both large, downtown firms and small, local firms. Dave's overall legal knowledge and ability combined with his friendly, accessible manner makes him a highly valued resource for Pacific West Bank.

We initially hired David Smith two years ago to assist us with a complicated real estate transaction. He helped to simplify the process, went above and beyond what was necessary, and left us feeling confident about our investment. Since then, we have consulted with him a few times on other business matters and have always found his advice or actions taken to be sound decisions, and in our company's best interest.

Dave has handled several types of cases for me (dog bite, employment contract and advice on a bad debt collection.) He always kept me informed, honestly gave me his opinion on my chances of winning, was always professional in dealing with the other side. I would highly recommend him.
