SMITH was established by John Da Grosa Smith in 2008. Recognizing the market potential of a firm founded on years of combined experienced in both law and business, John aspired to apply his interdisciplinary knowledge by creating a resource for client-centric, solution-oriented legal representation.

In keeping with John’s foundational vision, SMITH attorneys are trained to handle a diverse range of complex problems. The Firm’s practice of working alongside international companies has lent itself to a comprehensive understanding of high-profile matters on a global scale. With SMITH’s Atlanta headquarters continuing to facilitate competitive rates for the Firm’s increasingly multifarious clientele, SMITH is truly second to none.

Don't hit at all if you can help it; don't hit a man if you can possibly avoid it; but if you do hit him, put him to sleep.

Located in the heart of West Midtown, SMITH’s Atlanta office first opened its doors in 2008 and now serves as the Firm’s official headquarters.


Since its inception, SMITH has maintained a culture rooted in founding member John Da Grosa Smith’s Philadelphia upbringing. SMITH’s Philadelphia office will pay homage to John’s northern ties while furthering the Firm’s initiative to establish a national presence. Atlanta-based. Philly-trained. That’s SMITH.
