Smith Strong remains OPEN and we are meeting all clients and potential new clients via teleconference or tele-video conference (via Zoom) until further instruction from federal and state authorities.

We continue to work at our office locations, as we have less than 10 people at each office.  Our zoom-video, online firm huddles and team meetings deliver our strategic promise to ensure each case maintains its momentum, delivering the legal solution you need quickly.

Clients can drop off documents and paperwork, as needed, through our outdoor mail slot which will be taken by a live staff attendant at both locations from 8:30AM to 5:00PM, allowing safe distance for client and staff in the transmission.

  • Family Law & Litigation office: 5803 Staples Mill Road, Richmond, VA 23228
  • Estate Planning & Elder Law office: 3111 Northside Ave, Suite 102, Richmond, VA 23228

We look forward to meeting with clients again soon, live and in-person, upon further notice from federal and state authorities.  In the meantime, we are taking advantage of telephonic and video conferencing to keep momentum on all cases and legal matters, including hosting settlement conferences on litigation matters, including divorce, custody, and estate/fiduciary litigation matters each week, with great success each week.  Some criminal court hearings are occurring and our trial attorneys are maintaining an active litigation practice.

Smith Strong, PLC is leading the way in remote legal work and access--including implementing Zoom video calls and remote notarization and signing services for legal documents.

For estate planning needs, we are performing our "live workshops" at the scheduled times but via Zoom Video Conference Live online.  

We encourage folks to attend our online, live estate planning workshops to learn their options, then meet with us privately via telephonic and tele-video (Zoom) consults, and then we will conduct the signing at our daily-sanitized office, or in their home, or a third party location as the client directs.  We can also "schedule out" the signing, so it is done in May, June or July, but go ahead and get the design underway now.

The office where our estate plan signings take place maintains strict cleaning policies, and there is only one signing per day to ensure maximum sanitation practices at this time.  We can still complete your estate planning needs at Smith Strong, PLC.

We are committed to maintaining successful operations during this crisis--after all, many of you are in legal crisis, and our mission is to provide Legal Strength for our clients in every season of life.

Your life is not on hold, and our firm remains engaged and focused on delivering legal solutions.  Thank You.  We are with You during this time.
