Extremely Professional and Caring
Keri helped me in the worst time in my life. I honestly felt like she cared about my case, and went above and beyond to defend me. Not only was she honest, caring, and reliable; she was fantastic in court! I can't imagine a better lawyer for the job.

Great for newbies to the divorce process
Keri was recommended to me by a friend and I plan to use her if I ever need help again. She was so patient and kind while listening to my questions (even though I'm sure she's heard them many times). I told her upfront that I had no idea what I was doing and she helped me along the way the whole time. My case was fairly simple and I didn't want much battle in the divorce. She listened and helped me achieve my goals but also suggested to me ways I could get a better outcome for myself. When I said no, she didn't try to convince me, she allowed me to make my choices but insured that I was informed of my options. She's great! ❤ prices felt fair to me!

Keri was so great in my first custody and parenting plan case that when my plan required a modification I knew immediately that I had to have her draft the paperwork! In my first case, she was extremely knowledgeable and kept me in the loop of everything that was going on with my case. She listened to all of my concerns. She responded to all of my emails quickly (even weekend and late night emails). When my plan required a modification she listened to my concerns and advised me before we proceeded! I couldn't imagine anyone else handling my cases better then she has handled them! I highly recommend!

Life saver
I was throughly impressed with the work the Keri did on my divorce case. She combined a tough sense of professionalism with compassion for me and my situation. Her response time to my questions was phenomenal, often within minutes. I felt adequately represented and confident that I was getting the best possible scenario for me and my children. Keri took the time to talk me through complicated legal matters so I could always make the best informed decision. I highly recommend Keri Smith.

Honest, upfront, ambitious lawyer.
Keri Smith went above and beyond on my case. She listens, gives her honest opinions and was able explain everything so I understood. She really cares about you, not just the case. Because of her my family is better off. The best Lawyer you could ask for.

Divorce representation
I'm an aging woman who needed a lawyer who understood the issues of gray divorce and could work with a woman who had a voice. I hired Keri because she met all the criteria I had for hiring a lawyer. She is kind, compassionate, a strong communicator, a realist, has a broad knowledge of divorce laws and retirement issues, listens and validates needs and concerns, and more. I always felt supported, and knew I was working with a woman who would always have my best interest in the forefront. I needed a fair and equitable settlement with spousal support. I got it. I needed a lawyer who would treat me with respect and dignity and was someone I respected. I got it. I strongly recommend Keri Smith.
