About me

Michael Smith has been practicing law and advocating for his clients for about 20 years. After graduating law school, he clerked for two State Supreme Court Justices, on the Kentucky Supreme Court - gaining valuable training and understanding of the judicial decision process.  Because of his past experience working with insurance companies, Michael understands what issues and arguments are necessary to focus on when dealing with insurance companies to win the maximum amount for his clients.  Many of Michael Smith's current clients are people who were referred by past clients or lawyers impressed with his legal skills and results.


 


You will need a strong advocate to win your case. Michael Smith has key experience in negotiations and court trials because of his past employment as an attorney representing insurance companies, learning their procedures, defenses and arguments.  He now represents injured people against many of those same companies.  His specialized knowledge benefits you by negotiating settlements for a monetary recovery.  Michael is your advocate, working only for your best interests.
