About Wendy

Learn Wendy’s areas of practice.

After a failed marriage of 26 years, 5 children and a two year custody battle; I knew becoming a family lawyer was my dream.

I have been a nurse since 1991, I spent the first years of my career delivering babies at Forsyth Hospital. After 5 years, I discovered that I really wanted to be at home with my children and I started a Nursing Triage Company that now operates in almost 1/2 of the United States.

I had the perfect life, a company that was successful and allowed me to be a mom. Then; my life was turned upside down by a divorce. Three of my children still were at home and the battle began.

After many times of being told that my children would be taken from me, I decided to attend law school. My education taught me how to gain primary custody of the most beautiful gifts that God has ever given me-our children.

The ideal situation is when two parents realize they must co-parent effectively for the sake of their children, but this does not always happen.

In my own custody battle, the judge referred to me as a bulldozer, but sometimes in life you must destroy all the negative in your life, so you can build the life you deserve.

If you need a bulldozer, then I am the attorney for you. If you can effectively co-parent, then I am the attorney for you. If you are not sure what to do next, then I am the attorney for you.

We do not enter marriage saying, “I do”, with the thought of divorce, but it happens. If you do, and decide it was not a great idea, I can undo.

We all deserve happiness and peace of mind, and sometimes all you need is God, and an attorney to fight for you.

Best Attorney Referral
I was looking for a Attorney to assist me with my Child Support case in Guilford County and Wendy came highly reccommended. I'm the Father in this case and yes I owe back Child Support. I do have a complicated case being that I have another CS case in another County in NC. I was not being notified of my court date(s) and there was a warrant issued for my arrest. I went to Wendy got all my documents to Her and told Her everything. The warrant ended up being dropped and I was issued another court date. Wendy looked over all of my paperwork including a new Modification of Child Support Order that I received to increase the CS amount to be added on my next courtdate. Wendy explained what could and could not be done. Because of Attorney Wendy, my Guilford County CS case is up to date and in order. I walked out of the courtroom for the first time feeling free of judgement. I am thankful to have Attorney Wendy represent me. If you have any questions about Family Law, and you need a Attorney to be honest and represent you to the fullest, you have to contact Attorney Wendy Hudson. Wendy Hudson is now my Family Law Attorney.

"Finally, It Happened"
Ms. Wendy absolutely saved my life. After years of fighting a Angry Narcissist, myself and my children finally were saved by Ms. Wendy. Many years my children (now 14 and 12) as well as myself, have been emotionally, physically, and mentally abused by their Father. Back and forth and in and out of court for years trying to get me handcuffed/jailed and fined/held in contempt of court behind nothing. I've hired lawyers and they all let me down, not listening to my side and not reading emails etc. Until God sent me to WENDY JEAN SMITH!!!! This action filed against me this time was due to COVID-19/Visitation initially. False accusations by the Father of my children against me and also He ended up filing another Contempt motion to add on to the first motion. Ms. Wendy stepped in and handled both motions and showed that she understood me, she listened to me, and never blew me off!!! My Children's Father came to court ready to bully and LIE on the stand and Ms. Wendy was ready and prepared to fulfill Her duties. From asking the detailed questions during our two-day trial, and me not even having to get on the stand. At that moment I was already pleased and satisficed with Ms. Wendy's representation no matter what decision was going to be made. The Judge was ready to enter the Verdict... On all Contempt Motions..... NOT GUILTY!!! "IT FINALLY HAPPENED!!!" I wanted to scream, as tears rolled down my face. My children are now more confident and due to that one win, now has more trust in our Justice System. I/We now have a new and well loved Family Lawyer!!! You want the JOB DONE and DONE RIGHT, Ms. Wendy Jean Smith is the one for you. This review can not express how pleased I am with the results of Attorney Wendy Jean Smith.

Awesome Attorney, Wendy Smith,
I have to say Wendy Smith is a awesome attorney in my eyes. I'm still going threw a custody case right now, but so far everything she told me she could do, was done. Lets just say, all the steps I tried to take to get my child out of a terrible environment wasn't working. I did everything I could do to get my child back, but nothing was working . So a wonderful freind of mine, told me about Wendy. I called her office to see if she could help me, with getting my little girl back home. The same day I called, she was available to speak with me, and that's hard to find an attorney that can speak with you right away. So I made my appointment that day and we discussed everything that was going on. Needless to say, after speaking with Wendy, the next day I had my child back, and home were she needed to be. Everything Wendy told me she would do, she did it. I was amazed as well as my family. Wendy is a very caring person and she gets the job done. I thank the"lord" for putting her in my life and helping me with my case. Wendy's paralegals are very nice at the front desk as well. They make you feel at home, and Jacqueline, is who I spoke with when I called to get an appointment, and she helped out with getting me in as soon as possible. I recommend Wendy Smith and her law firm to anyone who is having custody problems. Thank You wendy smith for everything you have done for me, this far

Highly recommend
Wendy Smith cares about her clients and her work ethics are spot on. She made my situation go so much smoother by going over everything step by step with me before she proceeded to the next phase of my case and her communication is wonderful. Wendy takes your case seriously and has gone over and beyond my expectations to see that my case has been handled fairly.

Took my money and didn’t do anything
I was referred to the attorney by a friend. I was in a very bad divorce. My ex husband is very well to do. He physically and mentally abused me, he was also very controlling for 21 years. I desperately wanted out. I went off my good friends recommendation During the course of waiting three years to mediate, I found that I was addicted to a prescription med for anxiety. The divorce had affected me in so many ways bc of having three children as well. I decided on my own to go to rehab to get off of the anxiety medication. I left the day I decided to do this and was leaving for Colorado quickly. My ex husband was actually very supportive through it and I asked him to let my attorney know & that I would be gone for 28 days. There was a lot of packing to do to get ready and to say goodbye to my children. When I returned from rehab I got a nasty message from Mrs. Smith that I didn’t tell her everything and was very embarrassed because my exs attorney explained to her that I had become sick. She did not like that. She was more concerned of how it made her look??? I was under the impression when someone is trying to get help from being sick that you have support by others. Not this attorney. She was very ugly and rude to me and went instantly to to remove herself from my case with a judge leaving me with no money for another retainer. She didn’t give me a dime back and she never did anything except ridicule me. She’s a very very ugly person. Her office is extensive unprofessional. Her right hand will gossip to you about all of her boss business and I never felt comfortable there. They are a joke.
