Review
Mr. Clinesmith represented me for 2 motor vehicle accidents. The first was against a drunk driver, I did not have to worry about anything. I was 100 percent satisfied with my representation and settlement. The second accident was a hit and run. It was a very stressful situation and my injuries were significant. Mr. Clinesmith helped me wth my property damage and get the medical attention I needed without and complications. My settlement was prompt and his individual attention was appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend the Clinesmith for any legal matter his firm handles.
