Attorney Profile

Roy J. Smith, IV is an AV Rated Florida attorney and partner of The Smith Family Law Firm, P.A. which is dedicated to the representation of family law clients as well as individuals who have been injured in automobile accidents.

In the realm of family law, Roy provides services with relation to divorce/dissolution, child support, modifications of judgments, time sharing, enforcement of judgments, alimony, paternity, and child contact.  He allows clients the option of pursuing these matters through the litigation model as well as the collaborative method for family law matters.

His focus in automobile cases regards the representation of the injured person or, in the most tragic cases, the estate of the deceased accident victim.  Roy has had the honor of lecturing for consumers as well as fellow attorneys regarding the complexities of Florida's automobile negligence and insurance laws.  It is his belief that the client should be empowered with information and education about the details of their case so they have a better understanding of, not only their case, but steps that can be taken to protect them in the future.

This desire to educate the public extends to his family law clients as well.  In fact, Roy maintains an up to date brief summary of the most recent case law and statutory changes through the firm's Family Law BLOG: "Roy's Desk"

Roy is a proud native Floridian, a father of three daughters, and honored to be able to provide legal representation to good people who are going through some of the most difficult times in their lives.
