Stephen V. Smith is a dedicated and skilled Divorce and Family Law attorney. He exclusively represents men and women going through difficult divorces and complex family issues. When possible, Stephen uses a non-adversarial approach, involving mediation and settlement. Because emotions run high in this area of the law, Stephen is also prepared to proceed to court to resolve cases.

In addition to over 10 years advocating for clients, Stephen has personal experience with divorce. More than 12 years ago, before becoming an attorney, he represented himself in his own divorce and contentious custody battle. During this difficult time Stephen realized what a dramatic impact a good divorce attorney can have on people’s lives, particularly children’s lives. His passion for family law was born.

Stephen has a tough and savvy approach to litigation. He guides clients through the divorce process with compassion and straight forward legal analysis. Stephen is dedicated to educating clients, allowing them to make well informed decisions. Stephen fights to protect client rights and interests, as if each case involves his own family. He is deeply committed to providing exceptional representation to achieve the best possible outcomes.
