I was arrested in November of 2005 on a conspiracy charge. Attorney Jeff Smith was appointed to represent me. The government had a very good case. I also had a very bad prior record. I received only a two year sentence due to Mr. Smith’s good work. I was originally looking at a ten year mandatory minimum sentence.
Mr. Smith did not let his work end there. After I was released from prison I tried to get transferred to Arkansas they would not accept me because of my prior record. This was very hard on me because my mother was there in very poor heath. I also got very sick in this time period. Mr Smith and I went back before the judge and requested I be released from probation. The Judge did not grant our request. He said to come back in nine months. After the hearing Mr. Smith got them to agree to look at it again in four months. After four months, he got me released without even having to go to court. Mr Smith went far above what was required work for me. He does not think of his client’s as just a number, he thinks of them as a person who needs his very best help.
Jeff Smith was recommended to me by a friend. He was honest and realistic with me from the first meeting. I never felt like he misrepresented himself or gave me unrealistic expectations about my case. Jeff was always early to my hearings and conducted himself in a professional manner. His knowledge of the legal system and rapport with those in key positions were invaluable assets in my case. Jeff is personable and down to earth...not all puffed up and full of himself like other lawyers I have encountered. I feel confident in the fact that I was well represented and my case was resolved in the best possible scenario. I highly recommend Jeff Smith.
