Wrongful Death

Smith Hall Strongin provides aggressive litigation support for clients in their time of need, and ensures that clients receive maximum compensation for their loss.

What differentiates Smith Hall Strongin from other personal injury and wrongful death firms? Each of Smith Hall Strongin's partners spent over a decade at the nation's largest law firms, honing their litigation skills in high-profile litigation between major national and multi-national corporations. Smith Hall Strongin now uses those skills to help their individual clients maximize their recovery. Smith Hall Strongin also knows the enemy, and how to defeat that enemy! Virtually every personal injury and wrongful death lawsuit includes an insurance company controlling the defense. Smith Hall Stongin's partners have over 20 years of cumulative experience representing insurance companies, so Smith Hall Strongin knows exactly what insurance companies fear and how ensure that they pay out the maximum possible settlement or verdict.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Smith Hall Strongin's attorneys spent over 30 years representing insurance companies, and that experience helped them realize that they would rather help individuals maximize their recovery than work on the other side. It also helped them develop a highly specialized skill set that other law firms can't match. We have worked for the enemy, and we know that enemy better than any other wrongful death and personal injury firm.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Experience and education is truly what differentiates Smith Hall Strongin attorneys from other wrongful death and personal injury firms. SHS attorneys graduated from some of the top law schools in the country, including UCLA and Columbia University. Each of SHS's partners spent more than a decade at the largest law firms in the county, honing their litigation skills in high-stakes litigation between the world's biggest corporations. Moreover, SHS attorneys have over 30 years cumulative experience representing insurance companies at their prior firms, so we know their playbook and how to maximize the amount they are willing to pay!

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Other than our education and experience, Smith Hall Strongin's attorneys set themselves apart with their highly responsive approach. If you have questions about your case, or just need reassurance, SHS attorneys will be there to put your mind at ease and to ensure you understand and are comfortable with the chosen litigation strategy.
