Meet Mr. Smith
Francis M. Smith, Esq.
Mountainside, New Jersey
Union Sussex and Warren County NJ, Accident Injury Lawyer
I offer personalized legal representation to clients who have been injured due to the negligence of another person or entity. Whether you were hurt by a slip and fall in a supermarket, are pursuing an auto accident claim, or if a loved one has suffered harm in a nursing home, or any other accident or injury, I will work with you to recover the compensation to which you are entitled.
My clients can expect a level of personal attention and service that large personal injury law firms simply cannot offer. You are assured the same lawyer will handle your case, from beginning to end. You will not get lost in the shuffle.
I believe that communication is the key to any successful attorney-client relationship. I pride myself on the fact that I always return phone calls and email messages within 24-hours. I think it is important that you are actively involved in the handling of your case. For that reason, you will always get a copy of any correspondence that relates to your case. I will always keep you in the loop in terms of any new developments or situations that arise as your case progresses, and explain these developments in plain English. You have put your faith in me, and I work hard to deserve it.
98% of personal injury cases are settled out of court. Many of these cases are settled through mediation or arbitration; I have extensive experience in both.
In addition to my Mountainside office, I have satellite offices in Morristown, Annandale, Newton and Belvidere New Jersey. If the extent of your injuries prevents you from traveling to one of these locations, I am more than happy to come to you in the hospital or at your home. Our initial consultation is always free of charge, and you will not pay any fees unless I recover financial compensation for you.
