About Us

Smith Debnam was established in 1972 with a straightforward goal: to solve the legal problems of our clients.

As we continue to pursue that goal, we recognize that simply knowing the law is not enough. Our attorneys are tops in their areas of practice, well-regarded by their peers, and in many instances board certified. Our commitment goes beyond cases and courts.

We believe that solving our clients’ problems begins with a true understanding of our clients themselves. The people and companies that put their legal needs in our care deserve to work with professionals who are invested, easy to talk to, and responsive as a rule—not as an afterthought.

Only by putting in the time and effort to learn about their situations can we can craft the best, most equitable solutions possible.

As our practice has grown, we have developed a comprehensive set of services for businesses, individuals, and families. We look forward to talking with you about how we can best put our skills to work on your behalf.

In the meantime, we invite you to get to know us. Browse our practice areas, discover our history, and read our attorneys’ articles and insights. Find out what gives Smith Debnam its reputation for first-rate client service and professional know-how.
