CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF HELPING PEOPLE

CELEBRATING 71 YEARS OF HELPING PEOPLE


Today we made a difference

When firm founder Joseph Smith started the Smith Law Center in 1949, it was with the simple philosophy of helping the injured. A native of Newport News, Smith began with the express purpose of providing quality legal representation to victims of negligence. Seventy-five years later, his sons Stephen and Howard Smith along with Stewart Gill and David Holt own and operate the firm under the same guiding principles.

The Smith Law Center is currently the largest personal injury law firm on the peninsula and one of the largest in Virginia.

The attorneys at the Smith Law Center continue their legacy of service by putting the welfare of their clients first, protecting their rights through caring and aggressive representation. Hard work, honesty, and integrity are reflected in each member of the Smith Law Center team.

qoute .. Mr. Smith helped us get a settlement fast, and things are much better now…

Without Stephen’s help I’d probably be dead and penniless. I am a brain injury survivor. On the 4th of July weekend (in 2004), my life was turned inside out when I was hit on my motorcycle. My brother-in-law was searching for brain injury specialists and happened to find Mr. Smith. And he was a lawyer too! Mr. Smith helped us get a settlement fast, and things are much better now.
