WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Mr. Smeallie has extraordinary breadth of experience.”
“He makes sound, strategic judgements that are of great benefit to us.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"First, make sure you understand a client’s business, not just their legal issues. Second, assure them you will find the right lawyer for their matter, even if it means connecting them with someone in another firm. Finally, treat clients as you would your friends. In fact, some of my good friends are people I first met as a client."
