Very knowledgeable with high ethics!
I've known G. David Smith for over a decade and he's my go to person when anything arises in business (yes, even though when it's outside his scope of practice). He's down to earth, makes you feel comfortable and his ethics are very high. He's a straight shooter and doesn't sugar coat it. His office is a very comfortable setting in a beautiful victorian house. He's knowledgeable and if he doesn't know something when it's out of his scope of work, he tells you and researches it. If it's not worth it, he will tell you to move on and take your bruise.

| Consulted Attorney
I called David for a consultation for an injury. He was very polite, very professional, and honest in his dealings with me, even though his honesty cost him my business today ( he informed me that I could handle it on my own though he would be glad to do it) , I will be using him if needed in the future.

Buisness matter
G. David Smith was retained to handle a buisness matter and did everything in a timely manner. He answered my questions in a timely manner and explained everything in detail.

Great service
Mr. Smith quoted a price and came in on budget. I feel he went above and beyond to get my case handled.
