Dennis R. Smith, Esq.

Honest. Reliable. Competent.

Helping victims of construction accidents, personal injuries, premises liability accidents, and many other accident types across Long Island and New York City. Founding attorney Dennis R. Smith, Esq. is success-driven and provides honest, reliable legal services to injury survivors in need. Accountability is key, and it's our goal to ensure that those who hurt you are brought to justice.

He pursued a career in personal injury law as it presented an opportunity to assist individuals during their darkest hours, guiding them through some of their most challenging times. He uncovers liability where other attorneys cannot. Many of his clients' cases have been turned down or rejected by other lawyers due to their reluctance to take on challenging cases. He takes pride in thorough research and investigation to discover what other lawyers often miss. 

Numerous clients approached him with complaints of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) symptoms that were often overlooked or disbelieved by others. Recognizing the complex nature of these cases and the challenges his clients faced in being understood and taken seriously, he committed himself to deepen his expertise in this area. In response, he pursued a certification from the Brain Injury Association of America and is now recognized as a Certified Brain Injury Specialist, equipped with specialized knowledge and skills to more effectively advocate for those suffering from traumatic brain injuries, ensuring their symptoms and struggles are acknowledged and addressed in the legal process.

My Philosophy

Be accountable, and take responsibility for your actions.

When a company or insurance company does something wrong, it is up to you to hold them accountable.

There are two aspects to every case: compensation and community.

The purpose of compensation is to restore the plaintiff to their condition before the injuries. Since we cannot travel back in time, we have to use money to try and make them whole again.

The community relates to how a case makes the community safer because wrongdoers are held accountable.

Therefore, each case is an opportunity to prevent this from happening to our community, our families, and ourselves.
