Christopher J. Smith found his calling in assisting his clients during their most troubling times. He takes the opportunity to learn and understand his clients’ stories, their troubles, and their goals as if they were his own. This is reflected in his zealous and vigorous representation on his clients’ behalf, where he fights tirelessly to ensure that his clients’ rights have been protected and their interests served. Chris has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for his clients in various personal injury and employment matters through use of his practical and sensible approach to litigation, a style that he brings to every case.
Chris previously worked in the insurance defense field, representing insureds on the behalf of insurance companies against individuals who had often been severely injured. Despite numerous successes, he grew disillusioned with a practice that he felt often functioned at the expense of the victims. Instead, it was those instances where Chris represented the victims that he felt he made the most difference. Thus, Chris resolved himself to begin solely representing the victims, fighting for the rights and justice they are due.
Using the skills he learned as an insurance defense attorney, Chris champions the causes of his clients’ cases in a variety of matters and fields. He works with each client from the outset of representation to develop a customized litigation plan, tailored to fit each client’s individual needs and goals. Chris candidly presents the various options available to his clients and educates them about the steps involved in the legal process before them. He is with his clients every step of the way and routinely updates them regarding the status of their case. Chris is always available for his clients and never stops fighting for them.
