Mr. Smith is an experienced trial attorney who has practiced in state and federal court since 1975. Earlier in his legal career, he served as a Military Judge while on active duty with the U.S. Marine Corps. His practice for the past approximately twenty years has been concentrated in civil litigation, in which he represents plaintiffs and defendants.
