At Charlie Fisher’s funeral yesterday I remembered what he told me several years ago concerning you. I would like to pass this on to you.
Charlie was down quail hunting and I asked him “What am I going to do when you get too old to represent me in court?”, as I considered Charlie one of the few top courtroom attorneys that I had run across in my lifetime. About half of them had represented me and about half I had just knew of. Charlie said, “It will be no problem because in our firm we have a young man named Bryan Smith who is a young lion.”
I thought this was quite a compliment coming from one of the masters. You have proved Charles right in his recommendation of you.
Bryan W. Smith is an outstanding Attorney and I could not have asked for a better attorney. He returned all calls and was there for any questions that I could come up with. I sincerely appreciate all of the help and professionalism shown by your firm.
I was a client of the Smith Law Firm, with Bryan W. Smith as our lawyer. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you what a thoroughly outstanding job that he did for me in my medical malpractice case. He was a complete professional in the handling of our case to a successful conclusion.
