Meet Mr. Smith

Francis M. Smith, Esq., New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer

I first began practicing in 1976. For the first nine years of my career, I worked as in-house counsel for two different insurance companies. In 1985, I began representing personal injury plaintiffs, and I have continued to do so since. Today, I handle all types of personal injury cases throughout counties such as Sussex County, Union County, Morris County and Hunterdon County, including those involving:

My clients tell me that I have a comforting presence and a talent for teaching non-lawyers about the law "in plain English." I provide personal, responsive service to each client, answering all questions and phone calls promptly and clearly. You will never feel left in the dark. I know that this may be uncharted territory for you, and I need to supply enough information so you can feel comfortable with the process.

I am a highly experienced negotiator and I will approach your opposition with civility, courtesy and respect. Because I used to work for insurance companies, I understand how they operate and I don't need to resort to overly aggressive and risky strategies in order to secure the compensation you deserve. This "civil" approach has led to what my clients have called very satisfying results, including multiple settlements of over $2 million,* and at my office, the client’s satisfaction with the result, based on information I have them on how the law effects the case, is everything to me.
