Courtney is the most thoughtful and conscientious person. No detail escapes her. She’s also incredibly great to work with and diffuses the tension in stressful situations. I will absolutely work with her again and looking forward to it.

Worked with David during a very difficult time in my life. The service and office staff were outstanding. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again, if needed and I’ve promoted them to my family and friends.

Working with David Hiestand was a pleasure. My seemingly easy closing on my home had a few things pop up (long illness, timing of work done on the home, speed in which the closing needed to be done). They were always quick to respond to my questions and concerns and were very reassuring about getting things done when needed. I would certainly recommend working with their office and would not hesitate to retain their services for future needs.

Barbara is a real person who deals with the stickiness of family law in a real way for real families. So much of what I have experienced from the family court system has been a lot of formalities that seem out of touch and more about who plays the game best rather than what is actually in the best interest of children. That is NOT the case with Barbara- she actually listens, gets to the roots of things, and she will tell you when you’re right and tell you when you’re wrong because I feel she genuinely does want to see the right things happen for your child. That kind of transparency and solution-based-mindedness is a breath of fresh air in what can be very difficult circumstances.

My daughter and I needed some legal advice and direction as how to handle long term care for my husband. They listened with compassion and care, and gave us solid advice. I highly recommend them. They are great to work with.

Courtney is an amazing attorney!! Honestly the best one in lake and porter county area. She went above and beyond with my case. She is extremely professional and passionate about helping families and it truly shows though in her work, whether it’s reuniting a child with their parent to strengthen their relationship or removing a child from dangerous situations. She has an amazing work ethic , she was always early for court, on time for appointments and responds to emails in a prompt timely manner and even well after business hours if needed. She definitely has a way with words in a court room and knows just when to say certain things or when to the other person speak. She can definitely be a pit bull when needed and she is not easily pushed around. She is extremely understanding and totally nonjudgmental durning difficult times and truly tries to help her clients become the best they can be. I highly recommend her!! She will not disappoint!!

Courtney handled my divorce case for me. While she was representing me it was very obvious that she cared more about what was best for me and my kids more than money. Courtney is a very good to work with and she genuinely cares about her clients and what’s best for them. If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation were you need an attorney, call Courtney you will not be disappointed.

Courtnie was amazing! She fought for the best interest of our child and was able to come to an agreement outside of court with the GAL to save us money and time. The communication from her was very timely and straight forward. She kept our pocket books in mind when filing the motions that needed to be filed. Thanks courtnie for everything.

I highly recommend Smith Legal Group! They all were so kind and accommodating with helping us navigate through POA’s and Wills for our parents. Kim was so patient and thorough when explaining all of the documents, and went above and beyond in working with our particular situation. A huge THANK YOU to everyone at Smith Legal Group for their help!

Courtney and her staff are very organized and professional. From the moment I spoke with Megan on the phone, I felt that they genuinely cared about me as an individual, not just the bottom line. Courtney is feisty, which is something I think you want in an attorney; but don’t misinterpret her feistyness as she is making up for a deficiency….that would be a huge mistake!! She is very knowledgeable and helpful! I highly recommend them for any legal matter involving family law!

This is a thank you for Barbra Stooksbury. Barbra represented us in a custody case with professionalism and compassion during a very trying time in our lives. Here’s a little update on my daughter, Barb. She graduated yesterday with all A’s and B’s, missed 1 day of school the entire time she went to her new school and is enrolled at PNC for the next semester. She made an amazing turnaround and made the best of a situation she wasn’t happy with at 1st. I want to say thank you for representing us so she could have these opportunities. You’re the best lawyer I could ever have hoped for and most importantly you’re an even better person. Thank you!
