About Kevin

Learn Kevin’s areas of practice.

I represent people and families who are seriously injured because of the wrongdoing of others. My firm approaches cases as if our own family were the client.  We utilize focus groups, mock trials and cutting edge techiniques to tell our client's story.  Insurance companies do not pay what a case is really worth unless the lawyer earns it.  That means the insurance company must believe they only have 2 choices: pay the money voluntarily or have it taken from them at trial.  We don't bluff, imbelish or push false claims.  We represent our clients with everything we have.  Call any time day or night to make an appointment.

Above and beyond.
Kevin was an amazing lawyer, dealing with him and his staff was a joy. My grandmother was run over by a vehicle and I was unsure if a lawyer was the thing to do but after meeting with Kevin, he reassured me he would take good of my grandmother. After some struggles in the beginning with getting reports and such we got an initial amount for the case but after some further digging on Kevin's behalf, he was able to get my grandmother way more then we could have ever thought. Kevin and his staff's persistence and care for the case was amazing and I'm extremely happy with everything he did for my grandmother. I would absolutely recommend Kevin Smith to ANYONE needing a lawyer. Thank you again Kevin from my entire family.

Therese Hood, client
Mr. Smith represented my daughter for an automobile accident several years before he represented me. I was so impressed by his knowledge of the law and the excellent customer service he provided to my daughter that I decided he would always be the attorney I would choose. My case was probably one of the most challenging cases he had ever been confronted with. The representation he provided me was paramount. My case lasted for 4 years. The defense attorney assigned to my case did not display cooperative or professional behavior. As a matter of fact, he was obnoxious. I commended Mr. Smith for his patience. As the case continued, he was challenged at every turn. At times, I felt sorry for him. My accident happened in November of 2014 and lasted until January of 2018. There were 3 vehicles involved and the accident nearly killed me. It was a million dollar case. The final settlement was for $2.25 million dollars. It was even listed in the Attorney Weekly" pamphlet as one of the most prominent cases. Mr. Smith is an excellent attorney and knowledgeable of the law. I recommend him to all my friends and family.

Above and beyond what I expected.
Kevin Smith represented me as the victim of a motor vehicle accident. This was my first time being represented for this, and I didn't know what to expect. As events unfolded, he was keen on keeping me updated with his progress and explained the events and processes very thoroughly. I'm sure that dealing with insurance companies is a difficult task since they hold most of the cards with fine print, and their existance is profit driven. Kevin put me first from start to finish, and I am very grateful for both his patience (with me) and his persistance in getting a positive resolution. If I am ever in need of an attorney again (which I hope never happens) I would not hesitate to call on him again for his services. I wouldn't think of anyone else for a 'first contact'.
