After someone read-ended us, we were dealing with insurance companies, hospital bills and not really sure what to do.  We went to Ian and he took care of everything!  We settled out of court and received a very nice settlement from the insurance company.  We would HIGHLY recommend, Ian Smith to anyone who was injured in a car accident.  ~DC

I really didn’t think I could afford an attorney to fight my ex for child support.  After a FREE consultation with Mr. Smith, he immediately eased my stress and concerns about money and accepted me as a client and set up an affordable payment plan.  Thank’s Mr. Smith, child support checks have been coming in regularly for over a year now!  ~LN
