Firm: Law Office of Mark A. Smith, LLC

He represents and advises clients involved in traditional civil and criminal matters; negotiation and drafting of contracts; and difficult-to-characterize, discrete legal problems. The clients Mr. Smith has represented range from students to executives to government officials to professional athletes. Mr. Smith also represents and advises corporate clients, both small and large, including one of the nationâ€™s largest pharmaceutical companies, a large internationally regarded bank, a large retail organization, and an early-stage renewable energy company.
Mr. Smithâ€™s abilities are recognized by some of the foremost legal practitioners in the city. He is referred cases from distinguished lawyers, such as Brendan Sullivan, Jack Vardaman, Jim Sharp, David Kendall, Greg Craig, and Jake Stein. His approach to cases is practical, and he adopts creative, at times unorthodox approaches to solving complex legal problems and obtaining the best results possible for his clients. Mr. Smithâ€™s philosophy is that, because no law is self-executing, the individual stakeholders are vital to resolving any case. His forte is accessing such persons and fostering beneficial resolutions through effective oral and written communication. Years of experience as a Williams & Connolly litigator and former Assistant United States Attorney have trained him in the procedures of both criminal and civil law.
