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. Smith.

Monica is professional, understanding, and helpful. Consulting with her helped me better understand my legal options. I told a few people about what a benefit it was to get her opinions. She's a good person. My sister ended up referring someone else to Monica.

Monica Smith


  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Terrance and I provide free consultations for all of our potential clients. It is so important for the attorney that you hire to know about you and the intricacies of your case before providing a quote. After we meet with clients, we encourage them to talk to other lawyers and hire the legal professional who is best suited to get a favorable result.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Terrance and I have almost 30 years of combined legal experience and over 80 jury trials in both federal and state courts.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Terrance knew that he was destined for a life of public service from the age of seven. On weekends, he would put on his best Sunday suit and walk around the house making closing arguments. Monica decided upon a career in the law after completing her undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Her passion for the law was cemented during law school, and she has not looked back.
