Summary

Judy-Ann Smith, BSN, MS, JD, RN.

My passion as an attorney is being able to help people. When I help people resolve their legal issues that is the most rewarding aspect of the work I do. I also have an empathetic and compassionate side and I am willing to listen to my clients’ issues, to get a deeper understanding of what they would like to achieve and accomplish. Most importantly, I am an assertive advocate for all my clients and I will fight for what is fair and just according to the laws of the land.

Legally, I have successfully handled divorce cases and family law cases. With regards to estate planning, I have counseled and advised clients on their estate planning needs, prepared estate plans, and given presentations on estate planning. I have also successfully handled probate cases, assisting fiduciaries with estate administration and assisting families in implementing plans when loved ones pass away. As well as assist Trustees’ navigate through trust administration issues.

I have extensive experience in the healthcare industry and for many years I worked as a registered nurse in the hospital and clinical setting as well as having held administrative and management positions.
