Put a Strong Defense Attorney to Work for You

Helping businesses and individuals successfully resolve disputes

Smith Law is a broad-based civil litigation defense practice, enabling me to vigorously defend clients in the following areas:

  • Business litigation
  • Breach of contracts
  • Property damage
  • Personal injury claims
  • Insurance claims
  • Construction litigation
  • Consumer litigation
  • Products liability
  • Product defects
  • Torts

Although most legal disputes settle out of court, I have the skill and experience to go to trial when necessary. Drawing on years of experience, I fight effectively to uphold your rights.

The best way to deal with civil litigation is to establish a relationship with a law firm that will help you avoid it. I advise you on how to establish sound practices and draft strong contracts to protect you. If you are facing a lawsuit, I create a strong response within the limited legal timeline. I arrive at the best negotiated solution, or go to bat for you at trial. I help business owners navigate the court system and avoid some of the inherent disadvantages in the defense of these types of suits.

Working with clients to manage costs

I partner with clients to manage litigation costs. My goal is to strengthen my clients’ bottom line with prompt and cost-effective attention to each case. To save on costs, defense counsel can shift the burden of the cost of discovery to the plaintiff, among other tactics. I recognize and appreciate the need for prompt investigation and assessment of claim exposure, and a preemptive, decisive and aggressive defense without losing sight of the goal of controlling the cost of claims.

“Courage is the most important attribute of a lawyer. It is more important than competence or vision. It can never be an elective in any law school, and it should pervade the heart, the Halls of Justice, and the chambers of the mind.”
