Beyond Satisfying!

Working with Mr. Báez and Kimberly was a wonderful experience. Anytime that you need to enlist legal services there is a certain degree of uncertainty and anxiety. They were very professional, provided great advice, and were in frequent contact throughout the whole process. Not only did I feel very comfortable with their representation, but the results were also beyond satisfying. I can't say enough about Mr. Báez and Kimberly... THANK YOU for everything.

Highly Recommend

After 20 months we finally got a resolution. Mr. Báez was terrific, when we talked he laid everything out and explained our options. Kimberly Simpson, what a tremendous asset! always available, any emails that were sent were promptly answered, we never felt that we were a burden to them. Would highly recommend this firm to anyone seeking a positive outcome.

Scott and his team are truly amazing and will work hard for your rights.

Scott and his team are truly amazing and will work hard for your rights. From the time you walk in you are welcomed at the reception with a warm smile by Isabel, then the legal team in the back is always ready to help you. Vicki was outstanding at her job and as busy as she is, she was still so responsive to my concerns over the phone or getting back to me quickly over email. Scott was an amazing attorney and made me feel like I was his friend and truly cared for me and guided me through the whole process. If he couldn’t be there I was in good hands with Marci. I have had previous experience with other attorneys and I would highly recommend their team to anyone I know because they all work together so professionally and well together that they will do the best for you. Thank you, everyone.

Nothing short of AMAZING.

If you are reading this there is no need to look any further! Nelson Báez, Kimberly Simpson, and the team have been nothing short of AMAZING. After a difficult time in my life and battling against not only one firm but three, they were there to walk me through the whole process. They answered every one of my calls, set up all my appointments, and advised me on my care. I think the scariest part for me was the bills. They took care of that too. I did not have to worry and that is priceless. Not only did they win my case, but they also won my respect and friendship.

Great recovery and excellent to work with!

Mr. Smith and his staff were amazing every step of the way during the intimidating legal process to those of us who are not used to it. They were easy to reach and kept in close contact throughout the entire process making sure we understood everything that was going on and answering any questions that we may have had along the way. Mr. Smith came highly recommended and from day one it was apparent why. Without hesitation my husband and I would use Mr. Smith's services again should we need them. Great recovery and excellent to work with!

Always available and kept my best interest at all times.

Marci Ball represented me when I got into a car accident. From the moment I entered her office, she treated me like family. Marci got to work right away and kept me totally informed of what was going on. It’s a pleasure to work with an attorney who was always available and kept my best interest at all times. It’s good to have family looking out for you. THANK YOU SO MUCH MARCI!

I will always call on Smith, Ball, & Báez, honest, fair, and family.

Called looking for a lawyer and was treated more like family. The first person that actually cared about my case other than myself. Marci Ball Elordi exceeded all my expectations, got me back everything I was owed, and more. Marci has stayed in touch with me even though her job has been completed. I cannot thank her enough for helping me end the suffering I was going through. I will always call on Smith, Ball, & Báez, honest, fair, and family.

If I could give them ten stars I would!!

The Law Offices of Smith & Ball were awesome from start to finish. They walked me through what was going to happen step by step. Communicated well all the time. Was always available directly if I had any questions. Typically when you deal with an attorney office they force you to direct all the information via a paralegal or assistant, not the case here. I had the privilege of having Marci handle my case and she was beyond awesome!! I keep her info with me at all times and when I hear that her services are needed I pass her info along to everyone. This is an office you can trust and not worry that you are going to get shafted along the way. If I could give them ten stars I would!!

Best in the business.

I had an accident a few years ago that really had a profound impact on my life. Scott was so patient and understanding and he really walked me through every step of the process. He and his staff were amazing throughout. The communication was great. My case is not one that's straightforward, unfortunately, but Scott knew exactly what to do at every twist and turn. I cannot recommend him more strongly. I was referred to him and was told he was the best in the business, and now I know that to be true!

These kind folks are highly recommended.

Scott Smith was very responsive to my case and kept me well informed about the progress that was being made on my behalf. Every time I had a question or inquiry he always took the time to personally answer very swiftly. I am very pleased with the outcome and I would like to thank the firm for a job well done. If anyone needs legal advice concerning a personal injury case these kind folks are highly recommended.

If you're in need of an injury lawyer, I would call Scott Smith!

I'd like to highly recommend working with Scott Smith and his team. From the first call, I made to his firm everyone treated me with compassion and concern. Both Scott and Vicki were instrumental in teaching me the process, always taking my calls and responding to emails quickly. During deposition and mediation, Scott helped coach me along with each step of the process. He and his team are consummate professionals. If you're in need of an injury lawyer, I would call Scott Smith!
