Focusing on Clients

Just as at the Law Offices of Michael V. Cibella, LLC, the attorneys that Michael Cibella works with at Smiley & Smiley, LLP focus squarely on you, the client. Together, we invest in each case, hire effective experts and make a persuasive presentation in the courtroom and in negotiations. In order to ensure your case gets the attention it deserves, we limit the cases we accept. In these matters, we work exclusively on a contingency fee basis. If we recover nothing for you, then you pay nothing, even if we have incurred substantial costs in the preparation and handling of your case.
