I needed a living will because of a spouse with dementia and not knowing what to do or how to I contacted Attorney Smith because he was close to my home and it worked out wonderfully. He made it seem so simple and yet was so thorough and compassionate. I now feel secure and I have him to thank. Again he is a great lawyer and wonder person.

Mr. Robert Smith
Mr. Smith was was detained by me in order to assist with a Trust after the passing of my mother. I was left as Trustee and entrusted with the task of preparing and selling my moms home. This should of been an easy task but became some what difficult. The Trust was to be divided amongst 3 siblings but as it happened one of the three made it difficult wanting and demanding more then their share. This matter took longer then it should of but, with the knowledge and help of Mr. Smith everything fell in place and the division of the Trust concluded. For his assistance I give him 5 stars. A job well done a client well served.

"I have had the opportunity to see Robert litigating in court on many occasions. He has always impressed me with his ability to handle complex cases with multiple legal issues with ease. It's not uncommon to find him with his clients, and their families, in the hallways of the courthouse explaining the complicated court process, always making sure questions are answered. It's clear when you see him in action that he has true compassion for his clients. Robert is an excellent attorney and a asset to the defense bar!"
