Todd Smith

Attorney at Law

As a fixture in State and Federal Courts across North Carolina since 1999, I have dedicated my practice to helping regular people faced with some of the worst situations that they have ever encountered. I believe in doing right by my clients and providing the highest level of representation for them, because it is important to me to give back to my community. My roots run deep in central North Carolina, having grown up in Alamance County, where my family still lives and works today. The most important lesson that I learned from my parents and from growing up in North Carolina is to fight for what you believe is right. When your hands are tied, I’ve got your back.

When it's complicated, I face it head on

Some attorneys may tell you that they are willing to fight, but they have never seen the inside of a courtroom. I fight for what’s right for my clients in court, every day. Having handled thousands of cases in State and Federal Courts across North Carolina, I know the inside of a courtroom like the back of my hand. I continuously strive to improve my knowledge of the law. I am 1 of only 61 attorneys in the entire State of North Carolina who have been certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a specialist in North Carolina and Federal Criminal Law. When your life has gotten complicated, you need someone with experience on your side.

“Courage is the most important attribute of a lawyer. It is more important than competence or vision. It can never be an elective in any law school, and it should pervade the heart, the Halls of Justice, and the chambers of the mind.” —Robert F. Kennedy
