With almost 30 years of competitive courtroom experience, David R. Smith can fight for you.

David always enjoyed competition and victory. After succeeding in law school he turned down prestigious Big Law jobs in favor of a small firm job where he would get into the courtroom faster. That decision set him up for success – both for him and for his clients.

Today, David has the litigation experience you need to win.

You need a litigation attorney that loves being in the courtroom.

Unlike many Kansas City litigation attorneys, David’s favorite part about being an attorney is arguing your case in the courtroom. He knows the law that impacts your situation and he knows which legal claims you should raise to help you get results.

If you’ve faced personal injury, wrongful death of a loved one, or police misconduct, David can represent you and argue for what’s right. And if you’re going through a high-asset divorce, David can help you protect your relationships with your children, maintain a positive reputation, and protect your assets.

And if your business is facing high-stakes disputes, David can use his trial and litigation skills to help you keep your business moving in the right direction. He doesn’t like to waste your time or your business’ money. He’d rather give you the facts, the best advice under the circumstances, and help you resolve your business dispute. And if your dispute needs to go to trial, you want David leading the way.

David created a different kind of law firm in Kansas City.

While some people think attorneys are untrustworthy and unapproachable, they haven’t met David. David is friendly, entertaining, and cuts straight to the chase. He will probably make you laugh at your first meeting. Moreover, he wants to understand your situation and your specific goals and then will give you an honest opinion on whether you might be able to recover through litigation.

David and his firm can provide the same expertise you get from big law firms without overcharging and drawing out the process. When you choose to work with David, you’ll get a team member that fights to protect your rights and helps you avoid future disputes.
