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.


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.


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.

Family Law Attorney – Divorce Lawyer

Family law is the term that is applied to the laws and rules governing family relationships. Rules define not only the relationships between members of a family, but also between a family and society as a whole. More than any other area of the law, family law reflects the values society shares about how people who are related should treat each other.
