Service and experience for
military and civilian clients:

My law practice focuses on those areas of the law where
I have significant experience and where my staff
and I can offer excellent legal services.

I was lost during my divorce case. Douglas has a high knowledge base in family welfare and rights which correspond in a divorce case. Douglas took his time to finalize my divorce with success. Through his aggressive negotiations with my husband's attorney, he got me all the benefits he sought. I recommend Douglas in divorce cases one hundred percent.

Mr. Smith is the best attorney I have ever retained. I have had 2 other previous attorneys representing me to fight for my children and they did not compare to Mr. Smith. He made me feel extremely comfortable when I first shared my situation with him. My children now live with me. Mr. Smith helped make this happen. Thank you for caring.

I emailed the Law office of Douglas C. Smith. Almost immediately Mr. Smith returned my call. He spoke with me on a very professional yet friendly tone. He gave me a free consultation over the phone. He listened to my concerns and gave me excellent advice. He helped me save thousands of dollars. I have had terrible experiences with a couple of attorneys in the past. I am glad I was able to find an honest and knowledgeable attorney. I am extremely satisfied with his services. Highly recommended. Thank you Mr. Smith.

Going through a legal matter can and will be stressful and frustrating. However, Mr. Smith and his staff helped make this process easier with their professionalism and knowledge of legal matters. Although I wanted the matter over and done with, I had to understand that some elements were out of their control. The court and legal system is long and tedious, making it hard for any legal office to schedule hearings or file paperwork in a timely manner. Circumstances may be out of their control.  I'd like to extend my gratitude to Mr. Smith and his staff for my successful outcome.

Business Law • Estate Planning Law Firm

The Douglas C. Smith law firm has been serving clients from our office in El Paso, Texas, (El Paso County) since 1981. My professional support staff and I provide thorough, careful, and professional counsel to each of my clients.

25 years serving Hispanic and American communities

As a bilingual lawyer (English and fluent Spanish), my staff and I are sensitive to both American and Hispanic cultures. That understanding helps us effectively serve clients and prospective clients.

More than 35 years of legal experience

As a former Judge Advocate General (JAG) officer, I began my career as an attorney in the U.S. Army. I opened my El Paso practice in 1981.

Service and experience for military and civilian clients

My law practice focuses on those areas of the law where I have significant experience and where my staff and I can offer excellent legal services.

Family Law

Typically, family law attorneys assist people with the making and breaking of family relationships. Specific areas of representation usually include marriage and relationship planning, divorce, alimony or spousal support, property division, paternity, child custody and child support, mediation, and sometimes adoption.

Military

If you or your spouse - or both of you - serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and need advice about any family law issue from prenuptial agreements to divorce or modification of a child support or custodial decree, contact an experienced military divorce attorney at the Law Office of Douglas C. Smith in El Paso for a free consultation.

Personal Injury

Every motor vehicle accident is different. Your injuries, losses and damages are unique. Even low-impact collisions can cause permanent, serious injuries. Being injured in a truck or car wreck can have serious effects on a person's life. Accident victims often face high medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, severe injury, permanent disability, and even death.

Small Business Law

For many small business owners, using a lawyer is akin to calling a fireman or plumber: one does it only when there's a problem. Especially for new businesses, needs such as marketing, sales, staffing and just getting the business off the ground can easily take priority over legal issues, particularly ones that don't seem to be of immediate concern. But smart business planning also includes preventing problems and making sure the business is protected against potential trouble.

Probate

If you have been appointed as the executor or personal representative for the estate of a loved one, it is important to protect yourself and to carry out the duties in the process as effectively as possible. My firm can help you deal with any issues that arise and help you understand the steps to take after the death of a loved one. Being prepared can make a difference in how the process will progress and how the estate will be handled.

Other Issues

We handle various other issues outside of our core practice areas.

I was lost during my divorce case. Douglas has a high knowledge base in family welfare and rights which correspond in a divorce case. Douglas took his time to finalize my divorce with success. Through his aggressive negotiations with my husband's attorney, he got me all the benefits he sought. I recommend Douglas in divorce cases one hundred percent.
