About me

Attorney Smith possesses outstanding academic and professional qualifications, strong written and oral advocacy skills, an exceptional work ethic, and a commitment to excellence in all aspects of lawyering.


Since hanging her own shingle in 2010, Ms. Smith has focused her practice on family law, criminal law, and landlord tenant matters.  Throughout her career, Attorney Smith has been recognized for her dedication to her clients and expertise in family law and landlord tenant law.  In fact, she has been named one of the "Top 10 Best Attorneys in Client Satisfaction" by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.


What makes Attorney Smith different from her peers is that she will personally handle every client’s case, including the initial consultation, investigation, legal research, motions practice, hearings, and trial.  Most importantly, Attorney Smith works closely with all clients to develop and implement an effective legal solution that meets each client’s objectives, priorities, and budget.
