  • Improvements to the bar and to the commonwealth
  • Efforts to elevate the quality of justice in Virginia


The Hall of Fame Class of 2019 was honored at The John Marshall in downtown Richmond.

About Managing Partner Stephen M. Smith, Esq.

Stephen M. Smith is the founder of the Brain Injury Law Center and the managing partner of The Smith Law Center, which has been in operation for more than 70 years. He is an internationally-recognized expert in traumatic brain injury litigation, with more than four decades of experience in such cases. 

Stephen has been admitted to practice law since 1974 and earned his J.D. from the College of William & Mary. He also graduated from Marquette University’s Neuroanatomical Dissection of the Human Brain and Spinal Cord program, which allows him to understand complex brain injury cases more fully. The advanced medical training provides his clients with an advantage in the courtroom.

Career Highlights and Achievements 

Highlights of Stephen’s career include:

 

  • Helped pioneer traumatic brain injury (TBI) litigation in the U.S.
  • Contributed significantly to the area of demonstrative evidence
  • Originated the theory that TBI can also be wrongful death cases
  • Won the largest mild TBI brain injury verdict in history
  • Obtained the largest personal injury verdict in Virginia history
  • Holds the record for the largest verdicts in many Virginia jurisdictions


Stephen’s contributions have dramatically changed the way TBI cases are litigated across the country. He also regularly lectures, presents, and speaks all over the U.S. He does this in efforts to improve the skills of physicians and lawyers, and to help them recognize the symptoms of clients and patients so they can treat and represent them more effectively.  

While Stephen takes pride in the many verdicts he has won, he is most proud of having protected and changed the lives of thousands of individuals.
