Though the firm has grown significantly in the past 50 years in both size and range of influence, Avera & Smith is not a “mega” firm that practices in all arenas of law.
We concentrate our practice in personal injury law on behalf of the plaintiff, but also practice criminal defense, employment law, and business litigation.
We believe that the firm’s more than five decades of experience in personal injury law provide a significant advantage to our clients, and our firm will continue to operate as it has for more than 50 years: by providing caring, quality service from experienced and qualified attorneys, a remarkable support staff, and state-of-the-
