Gregory B. Smith has gotten amazing results for people for twenty years. He's not only a highly skilled legal bulldog, but a compassionate person, too. He's a "lawyer's lawyer," too. He's put on seminars for other attorneys, and has personally trained about a dozen young criminal defense attorneys, so the legal community as a whole has greatly benefitted from his skill and knowledge. He has also authored and self-published various e-books, and written many articles. His legal insights have landed him on Good Morning America twice, and his editorials on sundry matters have been published in newspapers around the country. Most importantly, he can talk to you today. In fact, you can him now at, his personal cell phone. Clients are constantly amazed that he answers all of his calls every day.

His initial training was actually in prosecutor work about twenty years ago. Here is what his former boss, D. Davis, former lead prosecutor, said of him: [Greg Smith] assisted me in Court, with the prosecution work we did as City Attorneys for the City of Mission, Texas. The cases involved traffic violations, assaults, thefts. [He] also assisted in court appearances. [He] gained considerable experience in procedure and working with law enforcement officers, methods of presenting evidence, including direct and cross-examination of witnesses, and above all, comprehensive preparation of cases for trial."

In other words, not only does Mr. Smith understand how to defend your or your loved one, he knows how prosecutors think, too.

Should 11 stars! Greg is a rockstar!
He has been incredibly helpful in a custody case where the opposition was making wild and incredulous claims against me. While the consular did not allow us to submit our case due to some paperwork errors, he guided me through proving myself in the eyes of the court.

Incredible & Experienced Lawyer - Wage Dispute Assistance; Highly Recommend
I spoke with Debbie and was scheduled for a free consultation with Greg. Debbie was an absolute joy, she was informative, helpful and had a wonderful energy on the phone. Greg Smith offers flexible hours and when I inquired how early he would be available to meet, Debbie told me that he has met with people as early as 6:00am. This impressed me as it spoke to the nature of Greg's business, his character and the care for those he would represent. I appreciated his willingness to do a free consultation whenever it was most convenient for me, knowing it could be just that; a consultation. I know that I'm not unique to this treatment but, knew that meant everyone receives the same open opportunity as I had, with Greg keeping them as priority one. When you think of a Lawyer, often you think of someone who is intimidating and because of that, I was a little nervous for our consultation. Upon meeting him, I was immediately comfortable. Greg has a welcoming and warm demeanor; his presence states authority without relaying intimation. I informed him of my situation (delay of payment after termination with my employer) and he immediately drafted a letter to send out to my previous place of employment. We are currently awaiting a response. I am thrilled to have found Greg and Debbie! It is daunting to stand up for what is rightfully yours against a company but, to have the right people in your corner gives you the confidence to do so, comfort knowing that you will be taken care of and enables you to feel empowered. I would highly recommend Greg Smith!

Hired, Ongoing Case
Very knowledgeable and attentive to my case, pointing out things in a co tract that I wasn't aware were applicable to my case. Took the time to ask questions to better understand my case and answered my own in ways I could understand, not just reciting textbook law definitions. Highly recommend.

Truly a GODSEND!!
My only regret is that I didn’t meet these men soon enough. I had spent a ton of money on my first lawyer to defend my son on a very complicated case. Without charging me a dime, Greg Smith and Jordan Haycock reviewed our case, did some digging, and met with my son before they even decided to take it over. I AM SO GRATEFUL THEY DID! Both are competent, compassionate and I feel confident that they can handle any case. I don’t feel so alone, trying to navigate a system that I am not that familiar with. Greg knew exactly what to do and jumped right in. I can finally breathe, knowing that my son is in the best hands possible.

He Keeps his Word and Lives up to His Promises!
I left my son's life in Jordan and Greg's hands and have not been misled or left in the dark about any aspects of my son's case. No stone has been left unturned and I am confident that the outcome will be a positive one. In these difficult times, the pandemic challenged our lines of communication, but Greg stayed true to his promises. He held my son's hand (metaphorically of course) down a very dark valley and for that I am eternally grateful. I emphatically recommend Greg Smith and Associates for all of your legal needs. I will provide an update, and hopefully unchanged review, once Greg Smith is completely done with our case and fulfills all of his promises.

Experience
I was so relieved to find an experienced, honest, caring attorney to handle my case. I felt like he really listened and truly fought for me. He put my fears at ease and was available at any time I needed, even when it was outside regular business hours he would respond. I am so thankful for his experience and ability to easily handle my case.

Amazing Lawyer
In the beginning I hired Jordan. I got Greg to finish my court. I had a DUI with an alcohol restriction they dismissed it off my case because of how well he fought my court case. Greg did an awesome job please continue to use him or his Law Firm. I would suggest for anybody these two amazing lawyers. Thank you Greg and Jordan.

Straight forward and caring.
Working with Greg over labor and wage issues in regards to her former employer has been great. Greg is very knowledgeable and really cares about getting justice for his clients. He if very clear in what to expect and with expectations in regards to working with him. I really appreciate how straight forward he is. I would recommend Greg to others in a heart beat.

Great Lawyers Firm
Greg Smith went above and beyond all expectations. Took the time to get to know me, understand my issues and took prompt action. Never had a lawyer meet with me twice over the weekend to ensure that we were ready with my case. I consider Greg a friend and would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone. Great Job Greg!!!

First attorney who actually wanted to help me and advocate!
I went in with a situation where I felt the only way to get out of was to cut off my right arm. After the first consultation, which amazingly he took time to listen and gather information, I left feeling like I would not only be able to resolve the situation but possibly even come out ahead. A very funny and personable man who knows his stuff and will make you feel like he's on your side. I have dealt with many attorneys who didn't even have the courtesy to sit next to me in court. He has always called me back in a timely manner and done what he could to make me feel confident that all would be ok. Highly recommend and will hire again if I need to.
