If you’re looking to be honestly cared for, this law firm is for you.”

- Dannette B.


“Attorney Steven A. Smith was referred to me by my Pastor. So I knew right away he would be someone of INTEGRITY & HONOR. Although my case was not a right fit for Attorney Smith it didn’t stop him from taking the time to spend over three hours compassionately listening to me after hours until almost 11pm. As me and my fiancé poured our hearts out to him about the devastating experience we endured the last six months as my mother suffered in the hospital. I could hear in his voice that he actually cared and finally someone else compassionate about the care of our elderly people’s treatment in hospitals and nursing facilities. I highly recommend Attorney Steven A. Smith and Team.”
