Avoid Council from The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC
We required a real estate attorney not attached to a firm for a personal damages matter since we work professionally with most firms in the area and there would be a COI if we used one of the firms. The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC was recommended to us. Before engaging The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC, we communicated in writing that the case was marginal due to damages less than $10,000, and that we needed their advice if this was worth pursuing at all. We compiled all discovery and exhibits in an organized way for The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC to expediently decide if this was worth pursuing. The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC encouraged us to move forward with pushing the case. On their council, we hired The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC and agreed to move forward that we had a reasonable chance to succeed. The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC communicated poorly through this matter, including "not receiving" an email which created confusion, requiring multiple days to reply to the Defendant's Attorney on a simple matter, and by accidentally sending confidential information from another client to the Defendant's Attorney. Ultimately, this case concluded with a dead end. The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC provided no constructive benefit in our case, since from the beginning we had communicated to them in writing that the case was marginal, yet in writing they advised us to proceed. Our invoice from The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC was an amount equal to half our total damages. The invoice included time that they spent talking with us before we hired them, and the invoice included exorbitant durations of time spent for email communication: over 7 hours spent on 3 email chains. We communicated a request to change the invoice due to these unreasonable charges. The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC denied changing the invoice and threatened to pursue legal action against us if we didn't pay the invoice in full. We paid the invoice in full. We do not recommend using The Law Offices of Jere C. Smith, LLC under any circumstances.
