A Winning Combination

A Full-Service Law Firm Ready To Address Your Legal Needs

Smith McDowell & Powell’s lawyers are uniquely capable of addressing nearly all of your legal needs. Our areas of practice include, without limitation, corporate and business law, civil litigation, employment, construction, real estate and development, intellectual property, entertainment and various other fields. We handle matters before State and Federal Courts, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and various other commissions and administrative tribunals.

Unique Experience Both In And Out Of Court

Our lawyers have litigated hundreds of complex legal disputes, both large and small, and have collectively helped clients recover tens of millions in judgments and settlements on the plaintiff side alone. Unlike many civil litigation firms, we relish the opportunity to take any case to trial. When our clients “want their day in court” we endeavor to find cost-effective and efficient ways to get them there. In matters outside the courtroom, we act as general counsel for a wide variety of businesses and can service nearly any industry.
