I hired Nevada for my Divorce and recommend him highly!
Nevada and the entire staff at Smith Law Offices did a phenomenal job and provided a smooth experience for my case. I came from another law firm who did not provide a good experience and Nevada took over and it was smooth sailing from there. I highly recommend using them for your needs.

Client for Life
Nevada provided service that I believe was second to none. Two things that my case was not is short or easy. The one true north that I always had was Nevada as he was there every step of the way to provide me guidance and ensure that we made progress toward my best interest not anyone else’s. He was extremely responsive and compassionate to all of my concerns but also firm when he needed to ensure that I was thinking clearly and not allowing me to get wrapped up in the emotion that goes along with the situation. I hardly expect that from anyone except my closest friends let alone my attorney. It is safe to say that I was not just a client of Nevada’s, but he also treated me as a true friend not just a client. I know that Nevada practices in multiple areas and he has a client for life with me. I would recommend that if you have any reservations just sit down and have a conversation with him and you will hire him on the spot just as I did!

Great Attorney and Law Office
I had a great experience with Nevada Smith Law office. During the initial consultation he thoroughly explained the entire process, step by step and answered all questions to ease my mind. Hiring Nevada Smith was an easy decision. He made the entire divorce process painless (as painless as possible) and as quick as possible. He was always prepared and answered all of my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Nevada Smith if you need a good divorce attorney.

One in a Million
Nevada Smith came highly recommended by a friend. I was suffering much distress and frustration with my then current attorney. Often finding myself disappointed with word of mouth recommendations, I decided to take a chance and make an appointment with Nevada anyway. Within minutes of meeting Nevada I knew this was an attorney that was certainly a breath of fresh air and clearly compassionate regarding his clients. I released my then current attorney and hired Nevada that day. You can pay an attorney a lot of money but you can’t buy skilled competence, perseverance, genius analytical skills or the secure feeling that you are unquestionably in good hands. Nevada possesses this magical combination. My complicated and difficult case ended successfully and I attribute that to my decision to hire Nevada. His excellent communication and his amazing staff are icing on the cake. My faith in ethical, skilled, creative, kind and empathetic attorneys has been fully restored. I confidently recommend Nevada Smith and rejoice with glee when I receive a big thank you for the recommendation. He is an honor to his profession.

Great service, always one step ahead.
I hired Nevada Smith after battling a separation and divorce for over a year with another attorney. My lawyer at the time was not keeping me informed, nor even working on my case. Often, I would leave messages and she would never get back to me. I started to panic because I felt that my current counsel was going to hang me out to dry. Nevada came recommended by a co-worker and after our first consultation, I knew he was a great lawyer. I was more informed after our first one-hour meeting than I had been in the last year. Both Nevada and his staff members were always one step ahead, as well as proactive in getting everything done timely and efficiently. They were patient with me and there to answer all of my questions with a phone call/email/etc.. After over two years squabbling, we were able to reach a fair settlement and I am so glad I hired Smith Law Services. I can only imagine what the outcome would have been if I had not had his team by my side.

Custody and Child Support
Great choice for an attorney for fathers who need someone on their side. Nevada provided me with an honest assessment of my case and was there for me set by step through it until completion. Even after the case was closed he and his office stayed in touch to clear up the child support issues. I could not be more happy with him as my attorney. I will definitely be recommending his office to any of my family or friends who need an attorney's assistance.

Exceptional Service and Results!!!
Mr. Smith and his legal team have been helping me and my family through some difficult issues over the last several years. I have found him and his staff to be extremely knowledgeable, caring, and effective both at the family level and on topics relating to my profession. They have expertly guided me through complex issues to achieve optimal results. Over time I have come to know Mr. Smith as an attorney who works pro-actively and fairly, thinks "outside the box," considers and advises of potential future issues, and prepares his clients well for all phases of the legal system. This has all resulted in lessened stress at extremely fair rates. I am grateful for all he and his staff have done for me and my family!

Good attorney! Highly recommended!!!!!
I had a great experience with Smith Law office. In particular the staff goes above and beyond to keep me updated. Communication is better than any other law offices that I had experience with. Mr. Smith is a good attorney and good person, very down to earth.

Lack of interest in my case
Nevada was never prepared when I had an appointment. He would say that he hadn't reviewed my file. He was hard to reach and I had to go to his office on two occasions to get answers after repeated calls text and emails. He always seemed to busy to answer my questions. In the end he gave me answers then when it came time to sign the papers the answers changed.

difficult to reach, unresponsive staff
Charged for items that he stated he didn't charge for, called multiple times to address charge over 4 months. Had to go to his office and ask for a explanation, staff said he had made a mistake about charging me but refused to reverse charges. Requested legal advice (paid a large retainer) and no service. As a customer, he appeared knowledgeable but no action from him or his office.
