Smith, Mihas, LLC fights for their clients! I was nervous, scared, and unsure of my options. Harry and Nikki held my hand throughout the process giving me the utmost attention and focus that I needed. I went into divorce mediation completely prepared with a strategy and came out with way more than I ever expected. My divorce was handled quickly and with great attention to detail. I am one happy client. I highly recommend them for your family law needs.

My husband and I asked Nicole Smith to handle our step-parent adoption. Her fees were in the range of what we expected. She took care of everything, even when my, difficult to deal with, ex-husband caused the case to stall. My husband and I were on edge and quite literally freaking out for lack of better wording, Nicole was calm and knowledgeable. The case did end up taking much longer than we initially anticipated (mostly my ex-husbands fault, not the attorney). She gave us solid advice and was professional at all times.

I was facing multiple felonies with total penalties of up to 5-20yrs!
Nicole Smith and her legal team successfully defended me against an overwhelming amount of false accusations, overzealous, over charging prosecutors and dishonest police officers. She and her team were able to use their many years of combined, broad legal experience to expose the untruths and dishonesty of the testimony against me. I had one charge dropped and was found 100% NOT guilty on the other two! In my opinion, there is no better legal representation in Detroit than Nicole and her team. I bet my freedom on it.

I endorse this lawyer. Nicole is a highly skilled attorney who works hard for her clients. She is thorough and detail oriented in every matter she handles. I've seen first-hand that Nicole works personally with her clients to determine legal goals and strategy, and as a result, she achieves positive results time and time again. In trial, Nicole is organized and prepared at every turn. Any person facing a legal issue will be in good hands with Nicole as their attorney.
