Scott knows his stuff about divorce, answered all my questions well and is very practical and forward-thinking.Aug 30, 2019Verified
Scott is knowledgeable, professional, supportive, easily approachable and tireless! He consistently kept me apprised throughout a long and tedious process to my recent successful case settlement. I could not have been more pleased with him as my lawyer from start to finish.Jun 8, 2019
Smith Legal did an amazing job representing me and my interests during my divorce proceedings. Scott and his team were always quick to respond to any questions I had and made the process easy to understand. I'd recommend Smith Legal LLC to anyone.Jun 4, 2019
I had the opportunity to have Scott Smith represent me in a complex legal matter recently. I was very impressed with him and pleased with the outcome. Scott is that rare lawyer that is extremely knowledgeable about the law, yet practical with his solutions while at the same time being compassionate with his clients. I highly recommend him and will send my friends to him whenever they ask for a recommendation.Mar 30, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$200 per hour as an attorney representing a client. $150 per hour as a mediator. I require an advance (often referred to as a retainer) and require the advance be replenished on a periodic basis as needed throughout the case.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I provide a free 30 minute consult via telephone. We address the basic issues and I explain my experience, fees and process in handling the matter. I answer preliminary questions and lay out the next few steps.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended Indiana University Bloomington for my undergraduate degree in political science, which I earned with high distinction. I then attended law school at McKinney School of Law, graduating cum laude. Following law school, I completed substantial experience in litigation and turned to settlement as the primary goal of all cases. This goal required substantial training, leading to a certification as a registered domestic relations (divorce) mediator and registered civil mediator. I am also a collaboratively-trained lawyer. I have worked since I was 15 years old in a variety of positions from cash register to serving; from driving a forklift to putting in boat docks; from working in the family business to many other jobs of all levels of pay. I believe that all of this experience has created in me a work ethic like no one else. I have worked with a number of people in all types of positions, managed paralegals and secretaries and others, have built up my legal practice and assisted many others in establishing or expanding and protecting their businesses.
