Mr. De Smet's practice includes a wide variety of civil matters. He provides real estate counsel in many areas, including construction and development issues, property disputes, and matters involving property damage, including timber trespass issues. Mr. De Smet counsels clients on drafting of wills, formation of trusts, and general estate matters. His practice also includes landlord and tenant disputes, personal injury claims, foreclosure matters, insurance defense, and collection matters, as well as providing counsel for homeowner associations.

Theron De Smet was an exceptionally professional legal asset ... he gave incredible advice that he broke down from legal jargon into information that I would understand. I did not feel I needed a law degree to understand him. There were times I needed to be brought back to reality with my expectation of the outcome of our case and he was not afraid to state the truth with great integrity. I never felt belittled or intimidated to speak with him. His professional manner was met with fair rates which in the legal world is not typical. All in all, Theron De Smet was an impeccable example of everything I believe someone needing legal guidance would hope for.
