There are lawyers who try win for you by cheating and lying. If they dont succeed then it will be the client who looks bad in the end. Marguerite Smith is one who will represent the best in you by doing things the right way and winning with ethics. I didn't exactly win, but had I not had Marguerite as my attorney then I might have lost greatly. I am thankful that I made the right choice in choosing Marguerite to represent me, and I'm sure anyone else will feel the same as I did if they were to choose her. She will do her best for you by doing things right.

Marguerite is the best lawyer you can get. We had a very difficult and complex case together, no one else could have won. She was always spot on, and her advice and strategy has been excellent. She is also well connected with her network of top colleagues she can draw from. I only can highly recommend her, don't go anywhere else if you want to win the best for your child. Her billing is clearly structured, reasonable and just. Apart from being an outstanding expert in family law she is also a wonderful, highly intelligent down to earth person, who will understand your needs and fight for your best interests. If you want to get the best out of your case, I would highly advise you, to work close WITH her- she is an excellent team worker, as better you you work with her and provide her with all she will ask you for as better she can work with you for you. At court in litigation she excels even higher, she has been always quicker and one step ahead of opposite council before they even realize what happened. While being fast thinking and moving, when it really matters, she is also very structured and good organised, which gives you an easy ride in difficult territory. This is what you need, when you emotionally blocked in these situations. She will steer you clear through a stormy sea. She is not only on the money, she is the best value you can find for your money. You will never regret choosing her, but really regret not have chosen Maggie, when and have her as your opposing council, than you are doomed! Well you had a choice - choosing Maggie Smith at the first place. Thank you for all you have done for me and my child, I will never forget.

Ms. Smith helped during a long and difficult international divorce involving child custody issues. Besides being very knowledgeable, she is also very organized and proactive. Throughout the whole process, she clearly explained the alternatives and their consequences. She sought and found advice on foreign law as needed, consistently kept me in the loop on what was going on and answered my numerous questions without delay. Her calm and friendly demeanor was reassuring in those circumstances when you're clearly not in control but merely trying to understand what the next step is. You can't turn divorce into something easy, but it sure helps knowing you have someone on top of things on your side...

Maggie and I are members of the KCBA Business law section. She has a strong business acumen which she uses seamlessly in all areas of her practice. I've admired the way she has developed a niche practice by understanding the business side of family and international law. She is very active in the community and where possible she is first on my list of referrals.

Maggie Smith is a superb attorney. I know her primarily as a member of family and international law sections of the American and King County (Washington State) Bar Associations. She is a well known and highly respected attorney locally and nationally in the areas of family law, child custody, collaborative law, and international law. She is also a very talented leader of groups of other attorneys who practice in these subject areas. I would recommend her to any potential client without reservation.
