Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. truly emerged as the law firm “Where People Come First.” Since 1968, we’ve been able to help clients and their families move forward with their lives. Looking back, we’re proud of that heritage that began with our founder, H. Guy Smith.
H. Guy Smith used to represent insurance companies, but that all changed years ago after his family experienced two tragedies. In 1942, his uncle Gordon Elmo Rodgers fell while working in a sawmill, permanently paralyzing him from the waist down. He died 14 months later at the age of 30, leaving behind his wife and small children. Years later, his cousin Jimmy fell 5 stories while working as a carpenter, sustaining massive injuries and multiple spinal fractures.
From these experiences, H. Guy Smith gained a new perspective of personal injury and its devastating effects. He saw how personal injuries could bring physical, emotional, and financial hardships. This new perspective turned into a new purpose. H. Guy Smith, who once represented insurance companies, vowed to represent injured people and their families instead. Over the years, he has enlisted other attorneys who shared in the same cause to partner with him.
Today, Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. remains committed to its founding purpose. Our expertise in personal injury and workers’ compensation has helped injured clients and their families for over 40 years – and it continues to do so. As we look to the future, we will carry on our proud legacy.
