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.
