I have dealt with many lawyers over the years with my son. Sherri Smelley is the first lawyers who took a personal interest in doing what was best. Sherri Smelley was also interested in my son’s problems and concerns. Sherri Smelley is very dependable, compassionate, but very effective in their work. –Mother of a Criminal Client

My wife and I recently needed legal counsel for a difficult case. After a long and arduous search, we found Sherri Smelley. Sherri Smelley is not only professional and knowledgeable, but compassionate and caring. Sherri Smelley made us feel like representing us was not a job, but a calling. We were treated like family and not like a faceless client. Sherri Smelley took our case and in spite of the case difficulties, represented us well and obtained a favorable outcome. If we ever needed legal representation again, we will not hesitate to call Sherri Smelley. We highly recommend Sherri Smelley for any legal needs.
