About Us

About Us

I am Attorney Gina Smith and I pride myself on offering effective counseling and legal representation to families and small business owners. Our team focuses on estate planning, probate, real estate and family law. Quite simply, the legal services we provide are those most commonly needed by everyday people.

The cornerstone of our law practice is estate planning and probate services. We are passionate about using wills, trusts, and other legal documents to help families gain some peace of mind from knowing their affairs are in order and to leave a lasting legacy for their loved ones.    Through our professional experiences, we have learned most wealth is inherited, not earned.  With the community at the center, our goal is to tailor representation to each client’s needs. We strive to provide effective legal representation, education, and resources to you and the community at large.

Get in touch and request a free 30-minute consultation. We’ll chat and go over your current needs and strategize together. Choosing the right attorney can be a daunting task. I am here to serve you.
