Gerald J. Smith’s journey to becoming a lawyer was not a straight classroom-to-classroom path. Instead, a praying grandmother, born in Mosier Valley, Texas, provided Gerald with patriotic uncles who served in different branches of the United States Armed Forces during the Vietnam War. Thus, college was postponed for a couple of years, for Gerald’s first desire would be to serve his country by enlisting into the United States Air Force.
Serving 20 years in the United States Air Force, Gerald J. Smith became a decorated airman who unselfishly fought all over the world for his country.
He devoted many years in the Pacific and European theaters performing operations in logistic squadrons.His units contributed to assorted military campaigns between 1980 and 2000, including Iranian Hostage Crisis, Desert Calm, Desert Storm, and the Bosnia conflict under NATO. He retired in 2000 as the International Military Student Officer at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. Today, he still believes in God, country, mission and family--before self.
Gerald J. Smith learned that fighting injustice was his “calling” and decided to pursueanother path that he is following today-- . practicing law--where he gets to fight injustice for all citizens--one client at a time.

Gerald has a unique talent of captivating the jury's attention. He is able to summarize the major issues, pick apart opposing counsel's argument, and immerse the jury in the emotional aspects of each client's case. As a former military man, he is understands the importance of protocol and procedure; therefore, a police officer stepping outside the scope of his or her duties is something Gerald brings to the jury's attention. I would highly recommend him to pursue any police misconduct case.
