This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
An attorney who really cares!
Mr. Smith is the one attorney who was willing to listen. He broke down my concerns into categories for me and told me the options I had. When he wasn’t the right attorney for the concern he pointed me in the right direction to others who may be able to help. I had two consultations with him and he has helped me more than any other professional during a very difficult time. He cares about people and what they are going through. I highly recommend him and will go back to him if I ever need assistance again. Like I told him even though I never officially hired him I feel like I owe him a million dollars. A wonderful guy!

Will fight Insurance companies tooth and nails for his clients.
Jason Smith is a very knowledgeable Attorney. I hired him in 2012 when no other attorney would take my case. The other insurance company denied my Personal injury claim from the start even though their insured was issued a citation for illegal left turn. Jason Smith filed lawsuit and other insurance company requested mediation before trial and ended up with a settlement in my favor. I highly recommend Jason Smith for Personal injuries cases.

An extremely competent attorney
Jason is an extremely competent attorney and has developed a reputation as such in the DFW area. His name is not one employers want to see attached to a law suit. In my case, after nearly six months of an large employer with unlimited legal funds being confused regarding what the Individuals With Disabilities Act law requires, they did an about face within hours of receiving notice by Jason. If it wasn't so sad, it was comical. Jason is not only an extremely competent attorney but also a nice guy. Imagine an attorney who actually sticks up for the little guy. Jason deserves all the success in the world and I am definitely a fan of his. Highly recommended!

Hire Him !!!
I have been represented by Jason CN Smith on two different legal matters. From the very moment I met Jason I knew that he was down to earth, sincere, and an awesome attorney. He and his staff have always exceeded my expectations. He was always available when I needed him, he was very understanding, and he had tons of patience with me as I became frustrated often. There is no "perfect attorney", but this guy is the real deal and I can't say enough good things about him. He will be my attorney and my friend for life ! FYI...he won both of my cases. He rocks.

Great Attorney.
Awesome Attorney. Recovered money for me in an auto accident where no other attorney would take my case. Highly recommended.

Highly Recommended
Jason C N Smith was successful in bringing down the "good ol' boys" who severely retaliated against me, and eventuallu fired me, after I reported sexual harassment at my job. He is extremely knowledgeable and a master litigator in the courtroom. The defendant's corporate attorney was no match for Jason. He was respectful yet very firm with the defendant's witnesses. He got to the truth. Jason listened to my ideas even if he disagreed with them. He kept me informed every step of the way. I am forever grateful to Jason and the entire staff at Art Brender's office. He is an excellent attorney and a true friend.
