I graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 2000, and earned my law degree from Loyola University New Orleans in 2003. During law school, I worked at the Internal Revenue Service on issues relating to small businesses and sole proprietorships, and clerked for two law firms focusing on domestic relations and divorce.
After finishing law school, I worked for a mid-sized Missouri law firm representing many of the largest American financial and industrial companies. In 2006 I opened my own practice, The Smith Law Firm, LLC.
Since that time he has represented thousands of individuals in family law cases in class actions. I've tried countless cases to conclusion, won summary judgments, arbitration awards, and favorable settlements for his clients. I've also provided legal analysis to news sources including Missouri Lawyers Weekly, the St. Louis Daily Record, The Countian, Fox 2 (St. Louis), KSDK (St. Louis), NBC KY3 (Springfield, Missouri), and KOLR 10 (Springfield).
Most of my practice is focused on representing clients in divorce, custody, child support, and other family law matters.
During his spare time, I contribute to a variety of non-profit organizations. These include Join Hands ESL, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Habitat for Humanity, SATE, and Missouri Confluence Waterkeeper. I've served as the head coach of the Missouri State University Mock Trial Team, and have sponsored various youth athletic teams and programs.
