Great lawyer!
I have trusted Ken's advice for years. He is a valuable source of information and guidance for myself and my family. Not only has he helped me deal with issues when they arise, but he has strategically helped me avoid potential problems before they pop up. I trust Ken to assist my family whenever we have a need for counsel, and I recommend that you do too.

Very satisfied client
Ken has been an excellent and valuable addition to my company. Ken has handled a number of matters for me over the past 4 years, ranging from personal injury to contract review and even to complex litigation. He serves as my general counsel, and I trust his opinion and lean on his guidance. I highly recommend this lawyer to anyone in need or representation.

Easy
Ken was more transparent than I would have expected. He let me know my options, where each pathway could lead, and let me make my own decisions while offering clear guidance. He double checked everything we went over and made this experience a lot easier than it would have been without him. I appreciate you and your office Ken and will refer any and all business your way for your expertise. Thanks again!!

Best in town!
On January 25, 2020 I got the call all parents dread. My daughter had been arrested on suspicion of DUI. I didn't know what to do except to call Ken Smith. I had heard his commercials on the radio and his name was the first thing that came to me. And I am so glad! First he spoke with me and patiently listened to my rambling. He then explained certain issues tobme and then arranged a time to meet with my daughter. He took what was a terrible situation and put us both at ease. It felt great knowing that we had him on our side. We could not be more pleased with the outcome. I can not recommend Ken Smith enough!!!

Outstanding Attorney
Ken Smith represented me during a very difficult and painful time in my life. He put me at ease immediately, and he clearly had a superior level of knowledge and expertise that made me feel confident I had obtained the best lawyer to handle my case. He exceeded my expectations in every way and was always readily available whenever I had questions or concerns. He also has contacts throughout the middle Georgia legal community and did not hesitate to use them for my benefit. I feel very satisfied with the outcome Mr. Smith was able to obtain for me. Finally, I have to say that this attorney became almost like a member of my family during the time that he represented me. He was consistently kind, understanding, supportive and compassionate over the course of nearly a year. I would recommend him to anyone without reservations. He is an outstanding lawyer and a very fine human being. If you are reading this and feel that you do not know where to turn for help, call Ken Smith today.
