Are you ready to fall in love with your law firm? Smiley Law Group practices in Washington, Oregon and Louisiana...and we're fanatically focused on two things: construction & you. We Love Construction Smiley Law Group centers its law practice on the construction industry, representing contractors, suppliers, and construction professional of all shapes and sizes in legal matters that affect its business. We love construction because it's our roots. Our founding member's father and grandfather were both general contractors, and every attorney in the firm has some level of real experience in the construction field. Smiley Law Group doesn't just have a "Construction Law Practice Section," we're a construction law practice. Whatever legal issue your construction business faces, Smiley Law Group can lend its expertise. We Appreciate You Unlike representation you might have encountered in the past, Smiley Law Group is concerned about results, because we're concerned about you. We appreciate our clients, and we appreciate the challenges they face everyday in the construction industry. The construction field is full of legal land mines. Smiley Law Group makes it a priority to be there for each of our clients, to answer their questions, to help avoid legal missteps, and to deal with legal complications as they arise. From contract drafting and review, to full-fledged litigation or dispute resolution, Smiley Law Group understands the construction industry, the needs of our clients and the legal options available to construction businesses. You'll Love Us We're different. Let us tell you why: • Location. Law firms traditionally pack themselves into skyscrapers like sardines, but the fancy views and high rent prices get passed onto their clients. You're important to us - not a downtown office. We've located our offices in New Orleans (uptown on Prytania St) and Seattle (SODO on First Ave.) to be close to our clients, and accessible. • We're Progressive. Take a look around our website - you can't miss it. We work hard to make our website one of the most progressive legal websites in the nation, offering RSS Feeds, electronic news and documentation, the most resourceful collection of free construction law articles on the net, and more. • We Share. Our News & Articles page provides any website visitor free access to articles about construction law written in common-sense language. Learning about these construction law issues can help your business, and the articles are a valuable resource. We invest a lot of time and money building this resource for you....and we enjoy sharing it at no charge. It helps our clients, and it helps contractors better prepare for legal scenarios. • We Believe in Community. We believe in more than community...we believe in your community. The construction trade is near and dear to Smiley Law Group, and through our involvement and support with trade and local associations, we're active in supporting the construction industry and the community that's important to you, your livelihood, our livelihood and the country as a whole. We make it a point to care about the overall community as well, engaging in monthly volunteering trips, living green and more. Visit our Community link to learn more. • Heart of a Contractor. Mind of a Lawyer. We've told you about how much we love construction, our clients and the community. We're quite accomplished legal minds, as well. Smiley Law Group was recognized as a "Leader in Law" in 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009.
