Review Nathaniel Smith

    Wasn't sure about Mr. Smith at first, but as time went on he shows he really does care about people and not just on a perfessionl level. He is fair on pricing and honest about things. The only reason for the four star is our case is not over with yet. my custody case is very complicated and on parental alienation which may or may not turn out well. I know its going to be hard, but I do trust Mr. Smith to do his best in ths situation. I will let everyone know how this turns out!

    I am happy with the consultation I received from Mr. Smith. He put my mind at ease on several concerns that I have with my current case. I felt the need to add a review prior to hiring him because HE IS JUST THAT CALMING! I love my daughter and I want to do all that I can to protect her. Mr. Smith was honest to let me know that there are somethings the court will and will not do. Which I feel my current Attorney has not been clear about.
    I wish I went to him sooner, my mediation session would have been a lot better if I had him. I plan on hiring Mr. Smith. I spoke with him for about 35 mins and I feel he was very PROFESSIONAL in the short time we discussed my case.

    Mr. Smith handled my divorce in 2011. He made me very comfortable and he definitely looked out for the best interest of my daughter and me. He got everything done in a very timely manner and always explained things clearly. He helped make the divorce process much less stressful. He also had very fair pricing and did not overcharge. Highly recommend him.

    I was getting the run around from other lawyers about pricing and what I needed to do. when I contacted Mr. Smith we was very very professional and answered all my questions. All emails and calls were always returned within 24 hours. Although going through the ordeal was not pleasant my experience with Mr. Smith was

    We are very grateful for the attention Nathaniel Smith showed to our problem. He is very compassionate about his work and understands the needs of his clients. My husband and I used him on a civil matter that never required us having to mediate with the other parties. Everything was handled in a professional manner and we were very satisfied with the outcome.

    Nate is not your typical lawyer. He gets his point across while remaining cool, calm, and to the point. Nate is a great Christian man and it truly shows in the courtroom and out. I would trust Nate for any legal matters that I need addressed. Thank you Nate for all the help you have provided my family. I would never want another attorney after working with you.

  • I would not hire this attorney after the poor consultation meeting.

    I met Nate Smith last week for a free consultation on a child support matter. Upon meeting him I was immediately turned off by his first comment to me. Let’s make this quick I can’t be here for a hour. His whole demeanor toward me was very arrogant and short. He never showed any interest in my case and made me feel like I was wasting his time being in his office. Before he truly even wanted to answer any of my questions he wanted me to sign a fee contract hiring him. At that point I knew it would be a mistake hiring this guy, so I left. I would not trust the reviews about Mr. Smith

    Nathaniel Michael Smith’s response: “I'm available for consultations, but not for cuddling and long conversations. I would be doing a disservice to my clients who have paid for me to return phone calls and e-mails, and prepare paperwork and go to court, if I turn away from their cases to allow a pro se litigant to abuse the consultation process and try to become a lawyer by talking to me for hours. If you're looking to talk to someone for hours about your problems you want a psychiatrist, not a lawyer. If you want to talk to someone for hours for free you want to talk to your family and friends, not a lawyer. I am sure "let's make this quick I can't be here for an hour" was not my first comment; that wouldn't make sense. But I do wrap up consultations when they're through; I must.”

    I am a former and current client of Mr. Smith and he is an impeccable attorney. In 2011-2012 he represented me in a custody battle against my child's father and I was able to receive a parenting plan that was definitely in the better interest of my child, but also in my favor. 3 years later, I am married and my husband has primary custody over his 2 children. Nathaniel Smith represented my husband against a false allegation TPO and all I can say is that he truly fights for his clients. I would definitely recommend Mr. Smith to anyone who is seeking an attorney who is very knowledgeable about the family court system.

    GOD BLESS!

    Although I did not keep Mr. Smith as my lawyer, during the two months I had him I was disappointed with the amount of work that was produced. After deciding to switch lawyers he was bitter and made it difficult for me to transfer lawyers by avoiding my calls and blacking out information my new lawyer needed. He was very unprofessional!

    Nathaniel Michael Smith’s response: “It's troubling to see a review like this. I'm never bitter when clients switch from me to another attorney or from another attorney to me; this happens both ways from time to time, and often is the result of nothing worse than a personality conflict or disagreement. My office staff and I never "black out" information unless we're going to use a document as an exhibit in court, and then it's appropriate to cover over social security numbers and account numbers. If this is the former client I think it is, though no name appears that I can see, I can say this. In two months, an uncontested matter can be resolved but a contested matter will only get started, with service on the Defendant and demands for documents being made, subpoenas being sent out, and so forth. That is precisely what I did for that client, whose unrepresented spouse was working for the military on the other side of the world, which does slow things down a bit -- again, if this is the former client I believe it is. It's a pity, and rather shameful, that a word like "unprofessional" would be used in such a callous way, and with a total disregard for, and ignorance of, civil procedure, of court procedure, and of the fact that a lawyer must act reasonably regardless of a client's bitterness and ill feelings toward the other party, because a lawyer's reputation sticks with him as he stands in front of the same judges repeatedly.”

    If you wish to have a lawyer who will lie to you to make you feel better and let you get away with grammatical errors, this is NOT your man. He knows what he's doing and was vable to adapt with my unique childcare situation. Thanks Nate!
