    If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, let the professionals at E. Zach Smith & Associates help you get the medical attention you need and the monetary compensation you deserve.

I am a 5th generation Oklahoma lawyer from small town Holdenville, Oklahoma. I love what I do because sometimes bad things happen to good people, and I'm passionate about defending those good people when those bad things happen. I have years of experience and a lot of favorable cases to prove it (and if you're really interested, you can read about all that on my website), but I don't want to waste anyones time by writing out my resume. What matters is that when it comes down to getting you the best deal possible, defending you and standing up for your rights, I believe there's no one better for the job than me.

10/10 would recommend!
I got arrested in December 2018, the end of the year to top it off.. for driving under the influence. I’ve never been in trouble with the law nor thought I would ever be. I was speeding 25 over and failed to stay in a single lane. I’m thankful no one was with me or involved. I’m thankful I wasn’t hurt. I made a mistake and had to face the consequences. I was nervous and scared what was to come my way. I hired Zach Smith to be my attorney, honestly the best out there! He reassured me that everything was going to be okay. Zach is very knowledgeable about dui cases, overall the law enforcement. Zach got me a deferred sentence and won my drivers license case, I will not have an interlock device installed in my car. Which has saved me so much money! Zach understands and doesn’t treat you any less of a human because I (you) made an unfortunate stupid mistake. Thank you!!

I hired Zach after I was arrested for a DUI. Due to my profession, I was very scared about what might happened to me as well as my job. Zach was a straight shooter, knew exactly how my case would turn out before the court dates and was very good at keeping me calm throughout this very hectic and nerve wrecking time in my life. Zack was able to get me a deferred sentence and also won my Driver's license hearing so that my DL will never be revoked. I will never be required to have a blow device installed in my vehicle, something you would normally have to do for an additional 18 months after the 6-month suspension (if I had lost). Zach was honest with me during the entire process and delivered what he promised. He is an excellent DUI attorney and would highly recommend him!

Excellent DUI Attorney
Zach is a consummate professional. He patiently and adeptly gives you, as his client, the lay of the land. Sets expectations and then delivers. He represented me on a DUI charge; and due to his expertise I received a deferred sentence, no license revocation, and I was not required to place an interlock device on my vehicle. I cannot recommend Zach highly enough to anyone that has made the same unfortunate choice I did and wants the absolute best representation.

Excellent DUI Attorney
Zach did a thorough job of preparing me for the steps to take to successfully navigate the DUI legal system. The result was a deferred sentence with unsupervised probation. In addition he was able to make sure I retained my drivers license unencumbered and without the need for an interlock device on my vehicle. I couldn't ask for more than that.

DUI
I was arrested and got a DUI/APC. Zach Smith got me a deferred sentence and won my drivers license case. Which means I will not lose my drivers license and I will not have to get a device installed in my vehicle. He is amazing at what he does. I was so scared and nervous through the whole process, but he put me at ease every time I talked to him.

Made the Best of a Bad Situation
I was arrested for DUI, in 2017. I had never been in trouble before, but I had made a bad decision and found myself in situation that seemed like I was in a Nightmare. I called Zac Smith and he met with me first thing the following Monday (which was a holiday). We went over the arrest together and then he laid out my options honestly and gave me realistic advice. We came up with a plan together and he walked me through each step of the process. He explained what I had to do and he took care of the rest. He did exactly what he said he would do. He got me a deferred sentence, which means no conviction. He kept my Driver’s license from being suspended or revoked by winning the civil hearing. This kept me from losing my license for 6 months and saved me the money and hasssel of having an interlock device installed for 18 months. He walked me though the process of the DUI assessment and DUI school, which helped me complete my part of the process quickly. I couldn’t ask for a better more competent attorney. I’m sure he has handled hundreds of DUI cases, but he recognized that this was a life changing event to me and he was empathetic to my stress and humiliation. He treated me like a friend rather than a case number. If you find yourself in a bad situation because of a bad decision call Zac Smith. He is professional and dependable.

Zach Smith Review
Zach Smith is the attorney that I hired after being arrested for a DUI and I couldn't have made a better decision. He was able to get me a deferred sentence meaning that I was not convicted. He also won my drivers license hearing which was crucial. If he had not won the hearing I could have lost my license or at the very least had a modified or breathalyzer put in for 5 years! I would strongly recommend Mr. Smith to anyone that finds themselves in the same situation.

APC same penalty as Aggravated DUI
I was arrested for Actual Physical Control (APC) which carries the same fines and sentencing as Aggravated DUI. I consulted with several attorneys prior to meeting with Zach Smith but none of them left me feeling like I had a chance until talking with him. Zach exudes confidence because he is a true professional and an expert in his field. Zach negotiated a deferred sentence (was not convicted), I have retained my license (didn’t lose it more than a day) because he won my case with DPS. Additionally, I’ll be able to get my record cleaned (local expungement the day of review and full arrest record one year after that) solely because of how Zach handled my criminal case. I can’t say enough about how grateful I am to have hired the right attorney, Zach Smith.

Deferred Sentence
Zach Smith worked his butt off on my behalf with complete professionalism and so open with communication and answering any questions I had along the way. I was arrested for a DUI collision, Zach Smith made me feel safe and restored my confidence in myself to improve and move past this nightmare! His recommendations for an Assessor to review my DUI and direct me to classes as great, the instructors were real and stern yet understanding and encouraged conversations and positive learning. Zach Smith WON completely for me: he made me feel as comfortable as possible, I was NOT convicted, didn’t lose my license, no breath device installed in my car and I will get my record completely cleaned in the near future! The best!!! Thank-You Zach for your guidance and best efforts on my behalf.

The best attorney I have ever worked with
I received a 2nd DUI in a 10 year period and was facing a felony. I was recommended Zach as my attorney and I immediately hired him. He relieved my fears and told me he would handle everything. He is very respected by the judges and prosecutors, and he was able to get me a deferred sentence, no conviction. He also won my drivers license hearing which means I did not get a suspended license or have an interlock system put in my car. I am very grateful for him and he took a very terrifying situation and made everything ok just like he said he would. Whatever you do hire Zach Smith as your attorney. Thank you Zach!

2nd DUI ( felony)
I received a 2nd DUI just 2 months after having an interlock device in my vehicle removed after 2 years. I chose not to get a lawyer for my first DUI and received the max. I thought I would save money. This was my 2nd DUI and I was looking at a felony and 4 years of interlock device. I was freaking out, so i done some research and found Zach Smith ( Tha DUI Guy). We had a meeting where he was very personable and straightforward. His demeanor and knowledge of the law, eased my mind. I followed his instructions on my case and not only did he get it dropped to misdemeanor, it was deferred. My license was not revoked and NO interlock device. Outstanding job, getting Zach as my attorney was the smartest thing i could have done. Wish I wound have called him on my first one.

E. Zach Smith - Excellence Personified
Zach Smith represented me after I'd been arrested for a second DUI within ten years. That would have been a felony, cost me my professional certification and I would have lost my home, my right to vote, to serve on boards of directors - everything. I was terrified. A recommendation from a friend led me to Zach Smith. He took the time to calm my fears, explain the details of my case, and why he was confident he would be able to get the charge reduced to a misdemeanor. He told me every step to take, which I followed promptly and to the letter. The charge was reduced, and I keep my drivers license. Not only is Zach a great attorney, he is a great guy. He was totally up front about his (very reasonable) fee. Anyone who finds themselves in this kind of trouble simply must call Zach Smith. This is his specialty, and he can help you.

DUI Guy to the rescue
Zack Smith, The DUI Guy, came to my girl freinds rescue. She had been pulled over because she was lost and in the center lane trying to get her bearings. Her English is not that good and the police thought she was drunk, arrested her for a DUI and dragged her off to jail. She was facing 18 months of breathalizer, time served DUI classes, and a bunch of fines, as well as losing her job and security clearances. The DUI Guy got all of that dismissed and reduced basicaly down to nothing. The legal prosses can be very dificult and expencive, especialy if you struggle with the English language. Zack made the prosses as simple easy and affordable for her as possible. ....Thanks Zack. ...
