  • Laura Smittick

    Founding attorney, Laura Smittick, was an engineer at General Motors for many years before she decided to pursue a law degree.  Laura decided to become an attorney when she saw how a legal dispute between family members impacted her entire family.  Since becoming an attorney, Laura has helped many mid-South families avoid the common pitfalls that can occur when someone they love becomes ill or passes away.  At Smittick Law, we are committed to providing committed, compassionate, counsel to our clients.  We help hard-working people to protect their assets and create a legacy.
