Helping People Since 1949

When firm founder Joseph Smith started the Smith Law Center in 1949, it was with the simple philosophy of helping the injured. A native of Newport News, Smith began with the express purpose of providing quality legal representation to victims of negligence. Sixty-eight years later, his sons Stephen and Howard Smith own and operate the firm under the same guiding principles.

Located in Hampton, Virginia, the attorneys at Smith Law Center are listed among the Best Lawyers in America and handle all types of personal injury cases, including trucking and auto accidents, DUI victims, brain injuries, medical malpractice, wrongful death, seaman’s claims, dog bites and more.

The Smith Law Center is currently the largest personal injury firm on the peninsula and one of the largest in Virginia.

“The attorneys are supported by a diverse staff of 28, who collectively bring over 300 years of experience to our firm,” says founding partner Stephen Smith. Staff members actively participate in a variety of professional associations that enable them to stay abreast of current developments in the legal field.

The attorneys at the Smith Law Center continue their legacy of service by putting the welfare of their clients first, protecting their rights through caring and aggressive representation. Hard work, honesty, and integrity are reflected in each member of the Smith Law Center team.
