David was always right there whenever we had any questions or concerns. His office staff was always very professional and available as well. It is never an easy journey to decide that a medical professional has missed a diagnoses but David was with us every step of the way. His guidance and insight helped our family feel a little easier about the whole process. He was our friend in the end and a good lawyer.

Top notch lawyers with vast personal injury experience. Handled an admitted liability roll over case for me. Insurer was refusing to negotiate a reasonable settlement. David was successful in negotiating my medical lien by 30% which went straight into my pocket and ultimately made the overall settlement acceptable, even though the insurer was not negotiating in good faith. Had that not happened we were ready to file suit which is ridiculous on such a case. David and his partner Elisa Zitano will take great care of you. They return calls and e-mails and will keep you informed as needed.

David and Elisa were very easy to work with. From the first time I talked with David I felt at ease with his approach to my matter. David was direct yet not forceful. He explained everything to me and my wife as we moved forward with my case as to what to expect, and any matters that arose along the way. I always felt complete confidence in his professional knowledge and actions. I would highly recommend the Smith and Zitano Law firm to anyone who would ask me for an opinion. The outcome of my case has no bearing on this review. My appreciation stems from the excellence in which this matter was handled.

My case was a very small one, yet David & Elisa treated it with equal importance as their 'big' cases. I was kept informed of every development. A fair settlement was reached in a timely manner.

And David E, Smith and his Associates proved this for me when they represented me in a dental malpractice suit that I had the misfortune of needing help with. He was Professional to great length and his warm and friendly demeanor welcoming. I was kept current and involved through the whole process of creating our "Case" and I was made comfortable during the scary Depositions.
With gratitude to Mr. Smith, I was able to avoid having to go to Court and lose time from work because of the more than fair Settlement I was offered.
As you can tell, I was happy with my decision to have David Smith represent me and
I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

David Smith took on my medical malpractice case despite the fact that it was clearly not going to be easy.
I had numerous pre-existing conditions that caused pain, discomfort and difficulty sleeping prior to having a Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (1st rib removal) surgery where the surgeon accidentally removed the wrong rib. To say it was a complicated case is a huge understatement. But David is very knowledgable about the human body and felt that we could build a case that we could ultimately win, which we did!
I was very impressed by David's understanding of what happened and in how much time he spent learning about my overall medical issues. He was a very good listener and was always very thorough in his approach. His very capable support staff made things as easy on me as they possibly could along the way which was greatly appreciated.
I would not hesitate to recommend David Smith at Smith Zitano Law Firm to anyone seeking a medical malpractice attorney.

David Smith and Elisa Zitano are such professional and knowledgeable lawyers in their field . Not only did they both show so much compassion for our case, but it truly felt that they were looking out for our best interest with a genuine heart. David would constantly update us with every new step in the case and he was very patient with all of our questions that we may have had. Nonetheless, he was a real bull dog when needed, which in the end, showed in our favor. I most definitely recommend him being on your side.

The Smith and Zitano team were a Godsend. We had a tragic medical issue occur to our family. I had contacted numerous lawyers who basically had stated, our case would not have been economically feasible for them. However, from my first interaction with David and Elisa, I knew that they were not only experts in the field, but compassionate individuals. They had spent hours with my family and were the utmost prepared. It was such a relief to know we had them on our side. Even the other lawyers had mentioned how prepared and knowledgeable they were. In the end, we reached a decision that we were completely satisfied with. They treated us with great respect and helped us manage through these terrible times. I would recommend them 110%. They are the utmost professionals and I will be indebted to them forever.

My wife and I are extremely grateful to our Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff attorney, David E. Smith, for representing me in a medical malpractice suit. I had been originally misdiagnosed, which in turn allowed time to transpire to the point where I am now in a life-threatening predicament. After I learned that I had a limited amount of time to file a case, contact was made with this firm and my soon to be attorney called me back immediately. Due to time restrictions, he filed the same day and represented me with the highest quality of professionalism and sincerity. David Smith led my wife and I through each step of the long process until he eventually was able to secure a settlement. We placed our trust in this firm, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
