Over the past thirty-plus years our firm has handled a variety of cases. Commercial litigation has been the cornerstone of SMR’S practice since the firm was founded in 1988. Our firm has developed a widely recognized ability to achieve excellent results for our clients in a variety of complex commercial disputes.

Although the majority of our personal injury cases have involved adult plaintiffs, we have acted for children and infants in a number of cases and have considerable experience working with the Public Guardian and Trustee to obtain approval of their settlements or damage awards.
