David M. Smith, a Chicago criminal attorney, has launched an Essentials website.
David began his legal career as an associate in the Commercial Transportation Group at the large downtown Chicago insurance defense litigation law firm, SmithAmundsen. During his time at the firm, he honed various fundamental legal techniques, such as developing superior writing skills, performing legal research and conducting arbitration hearings.
He opened his own law firm in October of 2007 and focused on corporate law, business and contract drafting. However, he began working cases for a busy criminal defense, personal injury and family law firm in Chicago, which altered the direction of his legal practice. Having the opportunity to assist clients in criminal matters became a passion for him. Something inside him pushes him to stand up for people against any odds.
