Over the past 4 years, I have spent countless hours learning about the criminal justice system.  I've spent time working in a prosecutor's office, and know tricks they pull. I have a passion for defending everyday people.  Whether it's an OVI/DUI, drug charge, or domestic violence, I do my absolute best to protect my clients.  Every single one of my clients have my cell phone number, and I actually pick up.  And if you haven't hired an attorney before, I promise that is not normal.

I devote a large amount of time to sharpening my skills. Most recently, I completed my NHTSA DUI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing course

Professionalism at its best.
When going through the worst time of my life I had many questions regarding my divorce / dissolution. The Law office of Seth R Smith was there to help me best they could. Would recommend them again for sure. Thank you all once again.

Exceptionally Competent
I will highly recommend Seth R. Smith to my colleagues, friends and family. I was facing an atrocious set of driving charges. He and his legal assistant Gabriella are very proactive and professional. They walked me through the process in a way that won my confidence and was reassuring. He was able to negotiate a set of charges to a single minor misdemeanor traffic offense. If you are facing traffic violations that are onerous or if you have an OVI charge, I would call him immediately.

Amazing communication!
I’ve had an exceptional time with Seth. My random and frequent calls regarding child custody, and Seth never seems to mind. He is very knowledgeable and confident in this subject. He makes me feel much more comfortable and positive in what I’m going through. Thanks Seth!!

Great attorney
Seth was hired very late into my case. He came into a mess of a situation and did everything he could to help. He fought for my relationship with my son. He is firm and will prepare you for the worst while fighting for the best. I can't recommend him enough. Oh and Gabi you are a saint. It has been a long road but Seth was able to negotiate for a fair settlement. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

Always available !
I’ve worked with Seth twice now, and there’s a reason I came back a second time ! I’ve truly contacted him at the worst times (two different holiday weekends), and he answered promptly without hesitation and helped me navigate through a couple stressful situations. Highly recommend !

Fantastic!!
Seth was amazing! He's down to earth, straight forward, and isn't afraid to fight for you. He and Gabriella kept me informed through the entire process and was quick to answer any and all of my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone in need.

I've known Seth for many years and I would highly recommend him to anyone I know! He is kind, thoughtful, and well-versed in the law. If you need a criminal or domestic attorney, hire Seth! You will be glad you did.

Mr. Speed
I hired Seth after he helped a friend through their divorce. He was able to knock my speeding ticket down so no points were taken off my license and it doesn’t show on my record.

Not confidential
I got a criminal charge and my family knew nothing about it. But then Seth’s office mailed me an advertising POSTCARD that said “I saw your case on the docket.” Would’ve been fine in an envelope but a POSTCARD!
