By submitting this lawyer request, I confirm I have read and agree to the Consent to Receive Messages, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy
With over 20 years of experience in the legal community, Chris Smitherman has earned the reputation for being a strong advocate for his clients. Although I am licensed to practice in any and all state courts located in Alabama and Mississippi, I predominantly worked in Central Alabama with a heavy focus in Shelby, Chilton, Bibb, Jefferson, Perry, Dallas, St. Clair, and Talladega counties.

The son of two pharmacists, I grew up in small-town Montevallo. I attended and graduated from Jemison High School. While in law school, I worked as a licensed realtor. I possess the skill and experience to provide effective professional services as well as the compassion and down-home concern to make his clients comfortable as they face life’s challenges.
How did you build a successful practice?

The law practice is like most other businesses that serve the public. It is about people and relationships. The best form of advertisement is satisfied repeat customers. I grew up in a small town and worked at my parents' pharmacy as a teenager. Getting to know the local folk was a great benefit to me starting my practice.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Dedication. I do not appear unprepared and I do not allow my clients to appear unprepared. Clients should expect their attorney to be interested in the client and the client's well being.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

General questions are easier to address than specific questions in that review of an individuals circumstances and their situation can often require a detailed analysis. Review of documents and conversations with witnesses are often necessary to put things in perspective.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

Depends on the type of case. The who, where, why, what and how can all be important.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I am a Southern boy.... so family and football are the obvious answers.
