Smith Hurst is intent on being a community of colleagues who enjoy practicing law together and helping clients achieve their business objectives while anticipating and resolving potential problems before they materialize. Our clients benefit from the Smith Hurst culture – and our attorneys and staff do so as well. We are a firm that knows who we are and where we are going.
We believe in a firm culture that fosters respect and support for all of our attorneys. Each attorney is given substantial responsibility and works closely with clients and partners. Cutting edge support and technology and a long-term commitment to professional development are hallmarks of our firm. Given the fact that we are an evolving law firm whose practice is not based upon repetitive, standardized transactions and matters, we expect our attorneys to be complete, well-rounded lawyers as opposed to specialists in subparts of particular transactions or matters. We endeavor to obtain, hone and maintain our legal and professional skills, which results in an aggressive, collegial and intellectually-charged atmosphere and practice of law from which our clients directly benefit.
We do not believe in, or tolerate, friendly fire, competition among firm members or “one-up-manship” among firm members. As a result, a true team spirit prevails.
We are committed to providing every attorney with the necessary support and technology to allow for the practice of law at the highest and most responsive level. Our computers and systems infrastructure and support are at the top of the current market and are constantly upgraded. In addition to the systems in place at our office, we provide each attorney with a laptop computer, iPad, iPhone and the ability of the attorney to connect to the office via the internet from anywhere in the world.
We find that in order to be the best lawyers for our clients, our attorneys need to be well-rounded individuals. We believe in supporting our community and encourage our attorneys to provide pro bono legal services, serve on boards and volunteer with community organizations and spend time enriching their lives outside of the office.
