Over time the Smirh/Downes law firm have handled many delicate cases for me, from employment, taxes, probate, and general legal council. Every case was handled with professionalism, consideration, and understanding. We never approached a case/situation where the options, alternatives, and worst case senerios were not spelled out before we started litigation. Punches were not pulled. The known provable truth and the subliminal truth were both discussed and reviewed. All cases have duel interpretation and potentially duel ending. It is so refreshing to work with an attorney firm who deals in the reality, good or bad, and covers your options in totality. Some firms I dealt with in the past were all about fees and billing. Not about what was the best approach to mnimize the emotional and financial harm to the client. Smith/Downes is not in business to make money on your problems. They are in business to maximize the potential to adjudicate your claim/issue/problem in such a way that you can breath freely and exhale, whether you win, lose, or just have you say in court. You will be please with the professionalism and dedication regardless the outcome. And their law office in Dallas makes you feel at home. I would trust my life and the life of my family to the law firm of Smith/Downs. Monica Smith and Terrance Downs I salute you. Thank you for being my legal consul. Sincerely, M. J.
