About Bart

Learn Bart’s areas of practice.

Bart Smith is an injury litigation attorney who spent the first half of his career defending insurance companies and their insureds (policyholders). After years of learning the inner workings of the insurance industry, Bart decided to use his extensive knowledge of the insurance companies’ tactics to fight for the rights of injured victims so they would receive fair and just compensation for their injuries.

Bart has a business degree from Texas A&M University and a law degree from Oklahoma City University. If you want the 12th man fighting for you, Bart has the Aggie passion and bottom line approach to his injury cases. He is licensed by the Supreme Court of Texas and practices in all State and Federal Courts. Bart devotes 100% of his practice toward fighting for those who have been injured.

Bart grew up in Anna, Texas, where his parents still reside. He lives in McKinney, Texas, with his two dogs, Bugsy and Little Bit. When Bart is not fighting for his clients’ rights, he can usually be found giving a golf course the same fits he gives insurance adjusters and defense lawyers. Bart is also the Vice President for the Hurricane Creek Board of Directors, where he donates his time for the betterment of the community.

Great opposing counsel!
I'm an insurance defense lawyer and have known Bart for many years and defended numerous cases with Bart on the other side. Bart is truly a lawyer and man of integrity. He does exactly what he says he will do and I always know that I can trust him implicitly. That said, Bart is a very strong advocate for his clients and does very well for them. I know. My clients have written him some nice checks. It is a pleasure to work with Bart. I know that when I get a new file and Bart is on the other side, I will have to work hard but everything will be above board, direct, and forthright. When a Plaintiff's case comes into my office, I often refer it directly to Bart. If we had more lawyers like Bart, the practice of law would be a better profession. I can't recommend Bart highly enough.
