    We first hired Hal back in 2010 and still to this day he has helped my husband through all his serious criminal charges. My husband was facing another strike with a prison term of 7yrs. well with the help of Hal he was sentences a little over 2 yrs but will have to serve 65% of that time. Hal is caring, & is willing to go above n beyond for his clients. Our family thanks you so much Hal! And bridget thank you also for helping us!

    I was facing serious trafficking charges when I was referred to Hal Smith. He proved to be an amazing trial lawyer. Its because of Hal I am able to write this review instead of being in the pen. If any of my peeps get jammed up I tell them who they need to call Hal Smith

    a Friend recommended Hal to me after meeting with Hal he agreed to represent me. Before I talked to Hal I was planning on spending some time in jail, he gave me a sense of hope and I didn't feel so alone, This man "Hal Smith" the feeling I got when we walked into the courtroom was up lifting and I didn't feel like I was being bullied anymore."As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death fear not for I am with you" that's the best way to describe how I felt. Hal not only treated me like a person I feel he really cares about my well being, He worked with me on payments and I will always be greatful. If you get in a mess Hal is the best I ended up with a misdemenor possession charge , court fines and that's it. Pretty good . I recommend hAL to anybody who has a run in with the law this is the man you want on your side

    In 2002 I received several drug felonies. With a strike on my record My public defender informed me at my preliminary I would definetly be receiving a state prison term of atleast 32 mos. I fired the public defenderI prayed hard and worked diligently to find someone who could help me maintain the life I had built.
    After hearing what I was going through a friend called me and said "You need Hal Smith" . I finally felt heard at my free consultation and felt full of hope after hearing my options for defense.
    He saved my life then by getting me what I really needed which was a treatment
    program with no jail time. Again in 2015 I found myself in serious trouble being charged with three felonies I faced prison. Hal saved my life again getting me a deal for a 90 day county sentence with half. If your in a jam with the law Then "You need Hal Smith" in Redlands

    I first met Hal in 1997, when I was arrested for a domestic violence offense. He is the very best choice for a lawyer you can. Ask for. Since then I have deferred anyone in need of any legal help. And will continue to do so

    I was one of the few people in jail who's attorney actually came to see me and go over my case and let me know what was going on...I was really glad to know that he actually cared and was working hard on my case. He doesn't lie and tell you things to make you feel better to take your money... He tells you the truth whether or not it's what you want to hear. I am very happy with how my case turned out and would highly recommend Hal to anyone.

    I hired Mr. Smith to handle a felony charge I had pending. I called him excessively because I was so stressed out. He took all my calls and returned all my messages. He spent so much time with me on the phone. I was so grateful for his patience. By the time my case was done he had gotten me a misdemeanor, no jail time and a fine. I was so happy with his representation...!!!

    I was charged with attempted murder and was looking at a life sentence. I was scared to death and did not do what I was charged with. Hal was honest and upfront with me and worked very hard on my case. He is a warrior in court, and was able to get me a misdemeanor with credit time served. I am forever grateful to him.

    Hal represented our son in a case several years ago and we were very happy with this work. He was very attentive to our needs. He kept us well informed and was very personal in his representation and attention to the case. Hewas very punctual for court appearances and we were impressed by his contacts in the court system an knowlege of the law. I have used and interviewed many other lawyers. I felt his rates to be very fair and representative based on what I have seen with other attorneys. Previous review on this site is very much the opposite of the experience we had.
