Mr. De Smet’s practice includes a variety of civil matters. He counsels clients in estate planning matters, including wills, trusts, probate and litigation. Mr. De Smet's practice also includes personal injury actions, wrongful death claims, landlord/tenant disputes, collection matters and providing counsel on a wide variety of real estate matters.

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.

Theron did what he said he could do for the price he quoted and always, always, every time responded to us in a timely manner. We needed a practical solution to a complicated problem and Theron gave us our options, supported our decision and saw it through to completion.
