About Kurt

Learn Kurt’s areas of practice.


I first moved to Nevada in 1991 and have lived here exclusively since 2001.  I have been married for 20 years and have three children.  My oldest child just started college and I have a Junior in High School and an eighth grader.  My family is the most important thing in the world to me and I work very hard to protect my clients' families, just as I would if it were my own.

Smith Legal Group
There was several reasons I chose to call Smith Legal Group for help. The number one reason was there willingness to work with me on my hours of availability. During the intinal consultation, I knew I wanted Smith Legal Group fighting for me. I felt the whole office as a team each one doing their part to help me. Unfortunately at this time I don't have a case but the whole team at Smith Legal Group did everything they could for me. Thank you Mr. Smith,Gary, especially Pattie and I am so sorry I didn't take note of your name the receptionist at the front desk.

The receptionist's name is Kelley, although she prefers receiption-artist. And you are correct. She is equally amazing.

Stellar Representation at Reasonable Pricing
So far Kurt & his team have been doing a great job with their preparation & representation. I can sleep a lot easier now knowing that he's not only an expert and a true artist in his craft, but he's also a realist and will not make promises he can't keep or speculate on what a judge might do...and he will help keep your focus on what's right for your case & your family. I think a few of the bad reviews I've seen are pure sour grapes where people didn't pay for his well-earned services or can't understand a successful lawyer like his can't always get back to you at the drop of a dime any time you want, or simply don't follow his advice and it costs them. Or sensitive personalities who don't like hearing his frank & blunt candor. I DO appreciate it, because it helps ME. Thank you Kurt. Kurt doesn't yell, hot-dog & grand-stand like these typical lawyers. He is above that and it shows that he's earned the respect of lawyers & judges alike. He's calm, cool, collected -- yet will represent with the best of them. I'm so grateful that Kurt Smith & his team were referred to me. KURT, KELLEY, PATTIE & EVERYONE ELSE -- Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for your stellar help so far. These cases can be very ugly and hurtful as I have learned and he's been the beacon of hope for moving towards what's right for my family, while keeping it real. To the reviewer that complained that he yawned during consultation -- this man just worked on my response that we were forced to file at the last minute all the way to 3:43am this morning, and still showed up at 9am hearing with me and met w/ me later inpromptu when I dropped in his office @ 5pm the same day. I can certainly be empathetic if he's yawning or tired...he's a workaholic machine with many complicated cases, yet WORTH EVERY PENNY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY. His transparent rates on the billing statements are very fair in my opinion. They do NOT nickel and dime you and offer flat-fee retainer agreements which can actually save you a ton of money while getting amazing representation. A true good businessman who's compassionate and employs like-minded ppl. Kurt & team have earned a family lawyer from us for life and I I am beyond grateful for his help and very hopeful for the future of my loved ones.
