Thank you!
In a child custody case, Kelly was not only extremely knowledgeable, but she was very sensitive to the fact that this case was hard on everyone. Kelly was always there and did a great job. Thank you..

Kelly was great and made the divorce process as easy and painless as possible. She was very straight forward in what to expect and didn't sugar coat anything. The fee was reasonable and I always got a return call or email same day. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone seeking a divorce.

The Cream of the Crop!
Kelly Jackson Smith's experience as a DUI and Drug Prosecutor proved to be the difference. She saved my career and my life!

be aware
Will nickel and dime the piss out of you. Had a friend use her. Simple questions. If she or had her paralegal actually stayed in communication occasionally none of the questions would have even had to have been asked. Charges 200 per hour to respond back to emails that take less than a minute to respond.
Response from Kelly Smith January 25, 2024
"Be Aware" I am sorry that you believe someone you know had a negative experience with our law firm. We strive to maintain the highest standards of care and professionalism. As you and I have never met, I can understand that you aren't familiar with the way we treat our clients. We bill in 10ths of an hour and do not bill for time that we have not expended working for our clients. We are available by phone, email and even fax! Communication is essential to any successful legal endeavor and that's why we are in perpetual contact with our clients. Please feel free to contact our office if you'd like to discuss this further and have a pleasant day.

Waste of your money!
We hired Kelly with high hopes. That was crushed after 2yrs of gathering information and of course paying Thousands of dollars later we were extremely disappointed not only because we lost in court but because of all that we had to go through. The secretary is very rude and if you read google reviews you will see this to be a big problem. They didn’t start preparing for our case until 2days before court and it was a big mess. I was led to believe one thing but treated a totally different way. Money up front , and service is on her time. We put all we had into Kelly and all we got in the end, was a simple “ This is my first case I ever saw go this way!!” Then she told us that if we were to try anything else, we would have the same judge so in other words , don’t try. I should have known right from the start when her secretary was so rude not only from day one but she became even worse throughout the two yr process!! She gives a big talk but does NOT do the walk. You will be very disappointed.

Response from Kelly Smith October 27, 2020
A lawyer's duty to keep client confidences has few exceptions, and I take my duty to clients very seriously. Wherefore, I do not feel at liberty to respond to this review in a point-by-point fashion in this forum. However, I can say in the clearest terms possible that I do not believe that this review presents an accurate picture of events or fairly reflects my representation in this case.
