This is an attorney who will keep it straight with you and do everything in his power to help. Him and Attorney Tom Miranda gave me my life back.

I had an issue with the Trolley "police" where I was subject of a severe issue and falsely accused. Gerald had the Trolley "Police" completely shocked. He is a good guy. It ended where they The "Police" didn't show up.

Retaining Gerald Smith was most likely the best decision I ever made. Not only did he go above and beyond his job requirements, He would show concern and for my well being in a health issue by becoming my advocate to gain speedy medical service. My peticular case was sensitive and was punishable by more then 30 years. He would assure me at times when I was feeling the pressures of trial and always left me feeling better and in capable hands.I fully endorse Mr. Smith . And would go as far as to say he was the best choice . I will forever be in his debt as he returned me to my life and was able to get me treated faster then the courts were allowing. If reading this has helped the reader decide to retain Gerald Smith then you will soon be writing a review not unlike mine. Thank you Gerald.

Knowledgeable and fearless in the courtroom, Gerry is an upper echelon trial advocate and a skilled negotiator. I would without reservation have Gerry represent my closest friends and family if they were ever charged with a crime. I have personally witnessed Gerry's work and have seen him in action-he is without questions one of the best. I strongly endorse Gerald Smith.
