Why The Law Offices of Edward A. Smith?

Ed SmithExperience

Edward A. Smith has practiced California personal injury law since 1983 and has personally handled injury claims of all sizes up through multi-million-dollar cases, including motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall claims, burn injuries, and animal attack cases. 

He has successfully resolved claims against all types of defendants, from individuals to cities and counties to the largest corporations. If you seek any type of attorney, no factor is more important than the attorney's experience in his/her field of specialty.


Many people with personal injury claims will shortchange themselves when they or their inexperienced attorneys assume that they have a "run-of-the-mill" whiplash case, or a simple knee strain case, or an "uncomplicated" broken bone. We believe that there is no such thing as a run-of-the-mill case and that the most effective way in which an attorney can add to the value of a client's claim is to discover those facts which make a claim unusual, out of the ordinary, and different from the rest of the pack. 

We will search for and pursue every fact that is likely to add to the value of your claim. Insurance claims adjusters and insurance defense attorneys are hard-working people who have hundreds of injury claims pass across their desks every year, so it is important to make a claim stand out from the rest of the stack if we expect them to pay full value for its resolution. We recognize that our clients are unique individuals and will use these differences in any way possible to increase their claim's value.

Commitment to Technology

Legal battles are essentially information battles, and the attorney who can best sort out and present the facts of a client's case is the one who is most likely to achieve top results. And in today's world, information battles require computer expertise. 

At the Law Offices of Edward A. Smith, we have already substituted CD-ROM libraries for many portions of the traditional lawyer's library so that our fully networked staff can more rapidly and effectively search for the past legal decisions, medical diagnostic information, and engineering and scientific details that are vital to successfully resolving our clients' cases. 

We make extensive use of online medical databases to search out the latest research results on the causes, effects, and treatment of injuries. We gladly use every online legal and governmental resource that we can find that might give us an edge in handling claims for our clients.


We really care what happens to our clients, and we want them to feel involved and informed at every stage of their cases. Since personalizing a claim is so important to maximize its value, we will want to know every way in which your accident injury has hurt your life. 

We also try to make sure you are satisfied with the medical care you are receiving. Your peace of mind regarding your recovery is paramount.

We believe in a holistic approach to personal injury law. Watch the following video for more on how we personally handle all our cases.
