Honest & Competent Litigation Lawyer
Macklyn has won wrongful death lawsuits at the $1 million level. He does not work for an insurance company and knows how to beat corporate attorneys. For my family, he has handled Probate & Rent Collection from delinquent tenants. As a retiree, rent collection is essential for my dwindling income. He kept us out of bankruptcy, by getting timely rent collection.

I've hired him on all of my cases and refer him to my family & friends all the time!
Mr.Smith is a fantastic lawyer. He knows what he's doing! Just like any other lawyer he is busy, and it takes two to get every detail on your case. I've always been honest with him and he has always tried his best for me. I met him ,hiring him for my fiance's case. It turned out very well. A few years later i got into some trouble myself and he helped me a lot. He always came to see me as often as he could. He knows the system well and has plenty experience. My best advice on this lawyer is to always be straight forward and honest. He is very old-fashioned but also has a big heart. It's not about just the money with him. He truly tries to help people and their inconvenient situations ! He currently is working on two of my close friends cases, has completed my fiance's and has done two cases for myself also. He is the right lawyer for me!

best lawyer ever
Im a 25yr old father and husband, i had a 10 day jail sentence and $2500 fine... That means probation... Macklyn worked with me, allowing me to make payments for his representation, got my warrant dropped, kept me outta jail, reduced my fine to $619.00... Im at home now and about to go to work... I would recomend this man to anyone who is in trouble with the law.

I won't call anybody else
I've had other lawyers and the one thing I can say about Macklyn Smith is that when you hire him to represent you, He does all he can for you. He's helped me and my family and my friends. I have nothing but the highest respect for Macklyn !!

sorry lawyer would not recommend him for ANYTHING
Three people that I know is in prison because he does not stand up for his clients in court. also, he does not get them back to court he lies and put them on zoom even after they let people come to the court room. ALSO HE IS MORE INTERESTED IN YOUNG WOMEN AROUND 20-25 YEARS EVEN THOUGH HE IS HIS 78.

The worst
Waste of money, used him years ago for a super speeder, tried to use him for a divorce/custody wouldn’t file a single motion in my defense, nothing.. and when I asked him if he was gonna file anything back he scoffed and said he doesn’t work for free.. after already paying him 1000$ for a zoom meeting.. None of my paperwork was copied for me until my last meeting, I would rather represent myself than ever hiring this guy again. Then when I tell him if he isn’t going to defend me I would like him to not be my lawyer he threatens that if I ever come there again he’s pressing trespassing charges!!!!! -5/5 stars.

you would think he would be a decent lawyer considering all his experience but he falls asleep when talking to him! and in court ! his wife recently passed away and he has no concern for the cases he takes you can tell he is depressed...he just wants the money..he rushes conversations and does not work at his best its like he tries to get off the phone with you as fast as he can i wasted my money for sure and if you are incarcerated looking to hire this lawyer forget about it he will never come see you and you cant even call his office from jail hes old fashioned, stereotypical and does not go by the book or codes please save your money and time and hire someone else dont make the same mistake i did...and still have to pay for it out of pocket and with your freedom...he sells you dreams at first...then when hes on the case its like hes there...but not at the same time! DO NOT WAISTE YOUR TIME

WASTE OF MONEY!! Completely horrible. I know I could have done better with out representation.
Mr.Smith did not stand when he was speaking to the judge and embarrassed us when the judge had to call him out. I almost missed my trial because his office never notified me when they assured me they would. He also stated he would be able to get my charges dropped if I paid him quickly, that is not the case at all. I received the maximum punishment and personally had to work out a deal with the prosecution when he had already been paid in full. Personally, I think he is on drugs from our conversations turning into rambling that had nothing to do with my case!?
