Laura J Smith has come to the practice of law by a dedication for providing legal services to those that are in need. This means that clients will receive a quality service and zealous advocacy, but at a fee arrangement they can afford. For example, Laura represents clients through a virtual law office. This allows clients to enjoy lower fees for their representation.

For two years, Laura aided Wayne County residents who were in need of help with their divorce, child custody and support issues. In addition, Laura assisted the elderly population of Detroit, Michigan by providing estate planning, foreclosure and civil defense services.
