Additionally, she advises clients on numerous areas of law, including insurance coverage, general liability, personal injury protection (PIP), and bodily injury claims.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Ms. Smith was a paralegal for five years during which time she gained valuable legal knowledge and experience that she used as a stepping stone to becoming a practicing lawyer.
