Tarlesha Smith, Knowledgeable and Caring
Mrs. Smith assisted our family with our sons case. Helping us navigate the legal and jail system and intelligently advised us through the process of his release, and now his record is actually cleared, giving him another chance at succeeding in life in spite of a bad decision. We are grateful.

Homeownership Dilemma
I had the unfortunate experience in April of 2017 that subsequently left me fighting for everything I worked for in my entire career. I was recommended to Attorney Smith by a friend who felt she could assist me with my situation. Not only was Mrs. Smith knowledgeable, professional and empathetic to my situation, she offered excellent legal advice which subsequently led me to hire her for her services. Mrs. Smith is assisted by her colleague, Mr. Curtis Jones, and with this team I felt at ease and comfortable with the decision that I made. They made this tumultuous situation easier to deal with and with that I strongly recommend there services to anyone needing legal assistance.

Highly Satisfied
I was referred to Mrs. Smith because of her expertise in the area of Labor Law, specifically as it relates to policies and procedures for employees of Miami-Dade County. Upon the first meeting with Mrs. Smith, she made me feel at ease, she made me feel that my circumstances were now her circumstances and of value to her. Mrs. Smith is not only well versed and knowledgeable about her specific area of law, but also has the ability to understand the total impact of the situation not only on the client but the client’s family as well. She has been exemplary and relentless in her pursuit to resolve my issue and has exceeded all of my expectations.

Straight Shooter
Ms. Smith displayed an excellent understanding of the Miami legal process. She was straight forward in telling me what I needed to know. She pulled no punches in telling me what the possibilities were. She was direct and to the point. In the legal world you need to understand what you are up against. Ms. Smith was that type lawyer. I highly recommend her.

Client Review for Attorney Tarlesha W. Smith
Attorney Tarlesha Smith assisted my husband and I with our Wills, Trust and Living Wills. She is of great character and extremely honest. We consider her to be very professional with superb skills and expertise. She provided information and guidance we never would have thought of. If there was a legal issue out of her realm of knowledge, she offered and provided a colleague with the same level of expertise and professionalism as she has. Her firm always kept us informed and engaged us in the process as we moved forward with our will and trust preparation.

Trustworthy, ethical, caring --the BEST!
I have been working with Ms Smith over the past year and have found her to be not just extremely knowledgeable but also to be a very caring and concerned attorney who goes the extra mile to support her client. She has not only gained my respect but that of my family as well. I can recommend her because she is honest about her work and doesn't make any promise she can't keep. I've learned that excellent legal support takes time to do right and Ms Smith makes sure that it is done the right way for her client.
