I am a retired police officer and currently conduct private Investigations. I have worked several cases for Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith has always been attentive during the investigation and quickly responds to my communications. Together we have been able to support charges being dismissed and in several cases, when the client comes to him early enough, we have been able to prevent charges being filed.
I have recommended Mr. Smith to several of my clients and potential clients, as I know he is dedicated and aggressive and have seen him do things in court which other attorneys have tried and failed. Of course, each case and circumstance is different, but Mr. Smith is trustworthy and has always been a pleasure to work with. He works and communicates with me and doesn't just sit back and wait for me to finish my investigation before he goes to work. Mr. Smith readily accepts my calls and input on cases. We have a good working relationship and work together well as a team.
Mr. Smith reads my reports thoroughly and understands the investigation process and how valuable a good Private Investigator can be to bring a criminal defense case to a successful conclusion.
Mr. Smith's prior experiences as a law enforcement officer and assistant prosecuting attorney gives him insight that few other defense attorneys have. Mr. Smith is open minded and open to new ideas and technology.
There have been some instances when my investigation may confirm his clients guilt, perhaps on other lesser charges at least, and in these cases he does his best to ensure his client receives the best outcome possible in their case.
If you want a good team captain for your defense, I highly recommend Mr. Smith.

My Attorney asked me If I would write something about his services and I am very happy to do so. I hired Attorney Gregory Smith for my criminal case and I am very happy with his work for me. He listened to my concerns and fought for me in court. Other lawyers did not show interest in my defense. Mr. Smith did listen and got my criminal case down from three felonies to two misdemeanors with just a fine. I think his fee was very reasonable too. My family and I are very grateful to him for all the time and effort he spent with us. I very much recommend Mr. Smith. Brandon-Martinsburg WV e-nail from client
