Smith Hulsey wanted to help ME, not just win the case. Their honesty, integrity and earnest desire to make a positive difference are rare and admirable. My attorney’s hard work and dedication to my case led to a $1,000,000 settlement.

-Stacey M.

They worked tirelessly on my husband’s Worker Compensation case to make sure we got what we deserved. Smith Hulsey was honest with us and gave us a timeline on the case. And he was correct on it.

-Myra P.

Smith Hulsey was there for not only her but the whole family through the whole process. Ronny was not just there as an attorney but also as a friend. We could call him for the smallest thing and he would explain it with no irritation or hesitation.

-Christian A.

My attorney was very reachable and updates were given to me weekly. Smith Hulsey helped my grandma receive a great settlement after having been told by different attorneys she did not have a case.
