Mr. Smith helped me get through the most difficult time in my life. He is a very experience Lawyer in this area of the law, Divorce. It is a very horrible word but his experience guided me to the best results that I've could have ever hoped for. He guided me and defended me like a pit bull and the end results were extremely favorable. My X did not have the glory of completely taking my kids or having her way. It was money well spent. I cannot say this enough. Thank you Mr. Smith from the bottom of my heart, you have given me back my life so that I can enjoy it with my children. May god bless you and your family.
