Not the type to write reviews trashing businesses but been meaning to share my experience with these crooked and incompetent attorneys since they dumped me and my case after giving me their word that they would follow through during out initial meeting.

I was injured when a drunk driver jumped a curb here in manhattan sending a fire hydrant through my bike and my leg. My case was very straightforward but these guys dumped me after several months of working together, gathering information, meeting with the insurance company, etc.

Their explanation was that some new cases had come in and they wouldn't have time to follow through on their commitment to mine. My best guess is that my case wasn't a million dollar jackpot for these guys, so they cut and ran to avoid the hassle of filing a lawsuit and helping me actually hold the insurance company responsible. Apparently, they're only in it for the money. They don't actually care about people, they just give a smile, a pat on the back, a handshake, make you sign some forms you don't understand, and have their underlings deal with you if you're even able to contact them after the initial meeting. They're in it for the big bucks - everything else is an act. Given their publicity, and sizeable fortunes that do not need any more financial padding, they're not doing any public service or trying to change the laws that allow people to be harmed in the first place. Like all the other ambulance chasers, they wait until someone gets hurt and pounce on them to see how much money they can take from a case, regardless of morality or principle.

I'm fortunate that I was able to fully recover from my injuries without being really affected financially.  At the end of the day if you're choosing a lawyer you want to be able to trust them, especially if you've been injured. These "representatives of justice" broke their word to me, and left me hanging.

Food for thought - It's been over a year so I think since they dumped be, but was reminded to write this review today after receiving their self-promoting spam in my inbox: savor the irony!

Smiley and Smiley, LLP Law Firm, Guy I. Smiley, Andrew J. Smiley, Jason D. Friedman are Unprofessional and Humiliated and Embarrassed me At Court, Smiley & Smiley Attorneys

AUTHOR: Victim of Smiley and Smiley - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, August 09, 2016

The firm Smiley and Smiley, LLP not only disappointed me but also led me to be publicy humilated because of their lack of due diligence. They could not keep the dates straight, kept getting the sequence of events and the facts wrong, and kept referring to my "persecuted and disadvantaged ethnic background and gender" as they kept referring to me as "this beautiful black Puerto Rican woman without a husband" in deposition and in court.

I was wrongly injured by the defendant and therefore unable to provide for my family during the interim in which I was unable to return to work. Instead, I ended up not only being humilated by the opposing attorney but by my own attorney from Smiley and Smiley, who strongly advised me not to take the settlement agreement and go to court.

That decision turned out to be a disaster, I am left in tons of debt, my family is in disorder, and the secetary or associates at the firm keep promising me that my attorney will speak with me again at some other time. They got me to sign an agreement in, which only they can represent me for this specific case so I am stuck with them. I thought I could trust their name from all those times they appeared on news shows as "expert law analysts." It turns out that they are no different than other shady, greedy, and unorganized law firm that looks at clients as potential money bags who are ranked by how quickly and how much cash they can unload at a time.
