Attorney Smith is a strong advocate for the rights of injured and disabled. He possesses over 25 years of legal experience. After graduating with honors from Boston University School of Business Management, he started his career as a workers compensation claims adjuster. Attorney Smith soon realized he could accomplish more in his career if he earned a Law Degree. He decided to attend Suffolk University Law School on Beacon Hill, Boston, MA. Soon after graduation, he worked briefly at a prestigious Insurance Defense Firm in Boston, Massachusetts. He quickly realized he did not want to represent big insurance companies and employers against the working class. Attorney Smith then took his talents to Lowell, Massachusetts and practiced law at one of the largest plaintiff oriented law firms in Merrimack Valley. It was there he determined it was his calling to represent the less fortunate and pursue injury and disability claims on behalf of clients and their families. After handling personal Injury, disability and workers compensation matters for over a decade in Lowell, he was offered an opportunity to work at one of the largest plaintiff personal injury firms in the State of Massachusetts. While at this firm in Boston, he handled countless workers compensation and third party claims on behalf of his clients. After working at a large specialty plaintiff personal injury law firm, he decided he could properly serve the needs of his clients if he started his own law firm. Attorney Smith is the founder of The Law Offices of Michael O. Smith, LLC. His firm represents hundreds of clients across the state of Massachusetts. His firm specializes in handling all types of injury claims including motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, wrongful death claims, negligence claims, premises liability cases, workers compensation injuries and social security disability matters. Attorney Michael O. Smith has handled countless jury and non-jury trials. Attorney Smith and his firm have recovered Millions of dollars on behalf of clients.

Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
A man recently retained our office to assist him with a personal injury claim. He was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. The police report alleged he was at fault for the accident because he was wearing dark clothing and was walking in the street at night with poor lighting on the roadway. The man sustained substantial injuries when he was struck by the motor vehicle. Other Personal Injury Law Firms did not accept his case because of the allegations in the police report. He retained our office after being rejected by other attorneys. Within months, we proved the driver was more than 50% at fault for the accident and we were able to obtain a 6 figure settlement for him.

How did you build a successful practice?
We built our successful practice by helping individuals, one person at a time. We understand how an injury or accident can significantly impact our clients lives and do everything possible to obtain a speedy favorable resolution. We get many new clients from word of mouth from other past satisfied clients. We pride ourselves as having a reputation of keeping our clients fully informed throughout the course of their case.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for an attorney with a strong track record of success and who has years of legal experience in the area of the law they need. They should also look for an attorney who is responsive and available to explain the process of representation.
