Debra Smith has represented me in my ongoing custody and visitation issues and has been such a great help to me. When I initially retained her office I was feeling very nervous and confused about the whole process. She really reassured me with her knowledge of family law and I left her office feeling relieved knowing that I had her representation. Her office staff was very helpful and available to answer any questions I had about my case. Ms. Smith has now appeared in court twice for me, once for custody and visitation and in helping me get a restraining order. Both hearings went very well thanks to her. She really took the worries of the legal process away, so that I was able to focus on moving on with my life after divorce. I would recommend her to anyone with a family law case.

I am 19 years old and I hired Debra Smith to represent me in my custody case. She handled everything for me, and her office staff was very helpful, they always kept me informed, and were easy to get a hold of. Debra was awesome in court and I got a really good custody award. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a custody lawyer in Riverside

Debra Smith and her staff are very helpful, and knowledgeable in what they do. My husband tried to take my son away on the grounds I was unfit, yet he was not the suitable parent. Debra fought him and his attorney, and although we had to go to court more than once, we ultimately won, and I even got more time than I originally had. Very good attorney. The fees were reasonable as well and they worked with me personally, not just like I was some random client. Greatly appreciated their help. If I ever need another attorney, I will go back to them for sure.

Hired Debra for domestic violence case. She was not prepared and lost my case. Very disappointed how poorly she handled my case. I should have done my homework!! She allowed the surprise witness to stay in the courtroom and listen to my testimony. When opposing counsel called their witness, she discredited all the points and testimony I gave. Debra never objected nor did she ask the witness to be removed from the courtroom. What a waste of time and money!!!!

I hired Debra with high hopes because she specializes in abuse. I very extremely disappointed when she showed up late and asked the judge to hurry since she had to teach class. She was not prepared because she showed up expecting a continuance and one was not granted, since she had already been granted one. She never filed my paperwork and just sat they as the judge gave orders for me to pay child support and attorneys fees to my spouse under bogus pay stubs and told me don't worry I'll fix it all later. Never happened. Now I have to hire an attorney to fix her mistakes and completely unethical presentation.

Debra Smith is an excellent attorney. I had a CPS case opened a few months ago. I didn't know what to except and she told me everything I needed to know and I had comfort knowing I had an experienced attorney beside me as I went through this process. Needless to say, she did an amazing job in court and my case in now closed and I have my kids! I couldn't have done it without her or her super helpful staff! I would really recommend Attorney Debra A. Smith to anyone in need of a family law attorney!

I am really satisfied with the Law Office and Debra. I knew going into his case it was a difficult procedure. I knew it would be like tooth and nails. Debra handled my case with Grace. I am thankful that Debra stuck by me through it all. She did a wonderful job and I knew she would! I am very satisfied with the results. Thank you Debra!

Before speaking to Debra, I met with 3 Lawyers who were doubtful they could help me obtain custody of all 3 of my children. Debra said she could, and she did, on our first court date. My children and I were desperate for help, Debra brought us together, and changed our lives. The boys and I are doing great. We are forever grateful to Debra and her fantastic staff for standing by us, fighting for us, and allowing us to be the family we were always meant to be!

Debra is an amazing attorney. We had court yesterday and I feel like a small sense of justice has finally been given to me. She was amazing, like a lion tamer. I am very lucky to have found her as my attorney and to represent me in this awful matter. Her staff is great, very personable and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend Debra to anyone looking for a top notch Family Law Attorney!

I came to Debra not knowing what to expect from my situation, I went on her website and I she related to me. My ex-husband was a jerk and I needed out of my current situation. I knew I needed to file for a divorce and get custody of my 2 kids. Debra was great in the court room and took my ex down! I got full custody of my kids and he has to pay me child support and alimony. Her staff filed my documents timely and they always stayed in communication with me about my case. I would surely recommend Debra if you are looking for a great divorce attorney.
