Excellent estate planning attorney
I've used Attorney Smyth's services for several decades from the initial estate plan up to and including critical, timely updates due to personal and Federal mandate changes. I have found him to be very knowledge, professional and dedicated to wealth preservation of his clients. I would highly recommend his firm.

Long term client of Attorney Smyth
I have been a long term client of Attorney William Smyth. Recently I had an urgent legal matter to resolve in a very short time frame. One email to Attorney Smyth and I had a referral to an out of state attorney to represent my interests. As the out of state matter had parallels to my estate planning and risk management considerations in Maine, Attorney Smyth made an immediate appointment to see me. In one hour we made changes and modifications to my estate Trust. I highly, highly recommend Attorney Smyth's professionalism, attention to detail and clam nature in assisting me with legal matters going beyond my Trust.

Very knowledgable!
When I first met Bill to go over my estate planning, he made me feel comfortable and gave me a peace of mind that my estate would be taken care of. He answered all of my questions and took the time with me to make sure everything was in place how I wanted it to. I would recommend him to my friends and family!

Would definitely go to again
I met with Bill to update my will. He answered all of my questions and promptly completed the documents. He is very friendly and thorough. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing work done and will certainly use him again for future legal work.

Estate planning Attorney | May 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Being New England estate planning attorneys means we regularly have clients who have vacation homes and family members in bordering states. Bill is my go-to guy in Maine. He has assisted many of my clients with transfers of their property in Maine to their MA trusts as well as doing comprehensive estate plans for my MA clients' Maine relatives. Bill is smart, friendly, down to earth, and everyone I have referred his way has made a special point of thanking me for the great referral."

"Bill Smyth is an excellent attorney. I have known Bill for a number of years and can say without hesitation that he knows the law and serves his clients diligently. Not only does Bill know the law, but he is incredibly personable. You can not go wrong in hiring Bill. I heartily endorse him. Jim Voeller"
Estate planning Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Bill is an attorney I have known for the last several years sharing a variety of continuing education classes. While Bill may be from the far north (Maine) his skills and expertise translate to lower New England. I consider him a valuable ally in navigating the problems both our clients face. Bill's heightened understanding of complex issues involving gun trusts and asset protection make him the perfect person to swap new techniques or ideas with. I would recommend a client to Bill without hesitation and look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship over the next 20 years."
