This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I don't know if there are any words to describe him. He is the only attorney that I know that, even if he is court-appointed to you, he fights like you paid him. Win or lose, you feel like he did all that he could. I don't know what the future will bring for me but I can say he did fight some years ago for me and I have another hurdle now this week, years after unexpectedly and I'm rolling with him again and feel confident. He is a believer in God and became like a dad that I call to. He listens to my overly excited calls to him, He is strict but will help. Great man.

One of the Best!
Greg is one of the best attorneys I've met in my lifetime. In working with him on a complex and time consuming case, I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, always one step ahead of opposing counsel, well briefed, and well organized. He has a genuine concern for his client's issues and is passionate about doing what is right. His ethics are of the highest standard and his attention to detail is extraordinary. He keeps his clients well informed and always makes time for their needs and concerns. In summary, I don't believe there is an attorney any better than Greg Smith in the Washington, DC area.
