Bio

Family law matters are personal, emotional and frequently involve complex legal or factual issues. Will Smith takes pride in helping his clients through the process. He focuses his practice on family law issues including complex dissolution of marriage actions, allocation of parental responsibility cases, asset preservation, child support, parenting time disputes, and adoption.

Understanding and navigating the legal process can be a stressful experience. Will works with his clients to formulate a strategy tailored to their needs and expectations. Clients are his primary concern.

Many family law matters can be amicably resolved after careful analysis of all potential factors. Will is a firm believer in amicable settlement to both maximize his client’s position and provide cost-effective resolution. When matters cannot be amicably resolved, he has extensive litigation experience and advocates aggressively for his clients.
