A strong advocate protects you and your family
I have been practicing exclusively in the area of family law for over ten
years. Kinnear K. Smith, P.A. was founded on the principals of representing
my clients in a professional and zealous manner while being sensitive to
their needs and the difficulties involved in dealing with a divorce or other
family law matter.
While divorce is unfortunate, I strive to guide my clients through this
process with as little contention as possible. This is a very emotional time
and decisions need to be made regarding your children, property and
future. It is important to know how your life will be affected during your
divorce and after its conclusion and I will communicate with you every step

I believe in the collaborative law process which builds a cooperative
environment for the parties to work toward a settlement in a more informal
setting. Collaborative Divorce is an alternative dispute resolution process

everyone in the family. The collaborative divorce model provides divorcing
parties the opportunity to problem solve in a private, confidential setting,
with the help of their experts, to reach a creative settlement without conflict.
While this is not necessarily an option in every case, I will attempt to settle
your case without any unnecessary costs of litigation, whenever possible.
If court intervention becomes necessary, I will personally appear at every
Court date and litigate aggressively to obtain the best possible result.
I treat all of my cases with the discretion that they deserve and handle a full
array of matrimonial and family law issues, including:
