Personal Background

Steven R.

He has given back to students there by serving as a mock trial judge, and hired interns to learn about the practicalities of law.

Steven started his career learning insurance personal injury defense, working for one of the most prestigious defense firms in New York. He thereafter worked for one of the finest personal injury medical malpractice firms in New York before opening his own personal injury practice over twenty years ago. At the Law Office of Steven R. Smith, he handles only cases for people who have been injured in an accident or through medical malpractice.

While some law firms pride themselves on starting a lot of lawsuits, Steven knows that his clients don't want lawsuits; they want settlements. Steven works hard to put their case in a great position to be settled because he knows what factors the insurance companies look for and value. He is, therefore, able to settle most cases without costly and time-consuming litigation. His Google Reviews prove how effective he is. Steven and the rest of his team are very proud of what actual clients have to say about the firm.
