It didn’t take long for family law to become a passion for Richmond divorce attorney Jacob E. Smith. It’s his calling to help individuals and families through the most stressful situation of their lives.
Mr. Smith’s sense of empathy gives him the ability to put himself in his clients’ shoes and feel what they’re feeling so that he then knows how to best address their needs.
“It helps me speak to them in terms they mentally and emotionally understand,” he said.
Mr. Smith likes to tell his clients that his approach through the case is to come off as the most reasonable and level-headed party.
“As a team we are the most willing to discuss fair and reasonable settlements, but we are also the last to back down from what we believe is the best solution,” he said. “We are intelligently aggressive.”
