Virginia's Family Attorney

Samantha Smith

Fighting for custody of a child, leaving an abusive situation, or ending a marriage may just be the toughest thing a person does in their entire life.

They need someone tough to fight for them, and I’m happy to step up to the plate.

My clients know I’m not afraid to put up a fight for what I believe in and am willing to stand by their side throughout the entirety of this journey to reclaiming their lives.

I had a scary case and was at my wit’s end trying to get help. Samantha was quick, professional and kind. She got my son and I the help we need the very next day after our consultation. Though I hope I never need this kind of help again, she is who I’d go to if I did.

Fighting for custody of a child, leaving an abusive situation, or ending a marriage may just be the toughest thing a person does in their entire life.

They need someone tough to fight for them, and I’m happy to step up to the plate.

My clients know I’m not afraid to put up a fight for what I believe in and am willing to stand by their side throughout the entirety of this journey to reclaiming their lives.

The field of law is one of the only careers that truly allows you to make a direct difference in people’s lives.

I was drawn to the practice of family law, specifically, because I knew I wanted to help people through these difficult times.

I have a driven, competitive nature and a passion for public speaking, which also prepares me to take on courtroom appearances that are sometimes required in family law cases.

When I work with my clients, I want to ensure they understand all of their options and are prepared to make decisions that they feel comfortable with throughout every step of this process.

If they want to stay out of court and attempt a settlement, I will fight for that decision. If they do not feel comfortable with a presented settlement, I won’t push them into one.

Having an open line of communication and understanding a client’s overall goals is the most important aspect of a successful outcome in their case.

Recently, I was honored to be named in the 2022 “Young Guns” category of Business North Carolina Legal Elite. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that my peers recognize my determination and grit both inside and outside of the courtroom.

This recognition has even further inspired me to keep fighting for my clients, and I feel fortunate to work with a team truly devoted to helping families rebuild their lives for the better.
