Tennessee Trial Lawyer Since 1988

My name is Gregory D. Smith. As a Tennessee trial lawyer since 1988, I have represented thousands of clients in a wide range of matters, including:

  • Civil litigation and appeals
  • Mediation
  • Criminal defense and appeals
  • Family law, including divorce and child custody
  • Military law, including military divorce and courts-martial
  • Native American tribal law

Every case is unique, but they all require thoughtful legal analysis tailored to the client’s requirements and goals. I work diligently to assure the best possible outcome for every legal conflict my clients face. While I always seek a fair and sustainable out-of-court solution, I am a seasoned litigator with hundreds of favorable verdicts.
