Summary

Mr. Smith's service to others includes his background as a Certified K-12 Teacher and Undergraduate through Graduate Instructor in several subject areas. Since 1965 he continues to work as a lay minister for various Christian and charitable ministries. His private law practice since 1984 has been an extension of these ministries so as to help people deal with a variety of legal matters.

Now LawSmithGroup allows Mr. Smith to fully realize his passion for helping people at all levels of alternative dispute resolution, litigation & protection.
Mr. Smith is a member of professional organizations including the LawSmithGroup, CASA representation of underprivileged children of Georgia DFACS,, the State Bar Associations of Georgia and Florida, the American Bar Association and the Federal Bar Associations for Georgia and Florida.
