Perry Smith and Danielle Riddles of Smith Riddles LLP

     We do not get paid unless we obtain a recovery for you. We charge nothing up front. We want to take good cases and we do not want a lack of financial resources to stand in the way. Our clients have been fired! The last thing they have is cash for a lawyer.

       We have a reputation for making things difficult for big companies that try to prevent us from obtaining evidence to prove our clients’ cases  – we are okay with that.

 “I thought you did a great job cross-examining me at trial and the jury obviously liked it, so I am referring some executive friends to you to see if you can help them out–they were laid off recently. Just wanted to give you a heads up.”  

             — CEO of public technology company months after Smith prevailed against the tech company in a jury trial and obtained punitive damages for his client. The jury agreed with Smith that his client was fired in retaliation for protesting gender discrimination.

 We care about our clients. We have heard more than once from our opposing lawyers that they think we care too much about our clients’ cases. We have been called “overly passionate, ” true believers [in our cients’ cases],” and, at times,    ” hyperaggressive.” They think those are insults!
