Our Approach

The philosophy of the firm is to be client centered, to provide excellent effort to achieve client results and to help guide and assist our clients along the way.

Our Story

Curt Smith and Steve Cook met in 1996, through a mutual friend, and learned quickly that their goals and interests in helping people were uniquely aligned.  The commitment to excellence, and to the client’s goals, brought together a synergy of effort that was fulfilled by the formation of the law firm.   After more than  50 years of combined practice, the goals remain the same.
