Four years ago, Scott Smiley started Smiley Law Group in Hurricane ravished New Orleans, LA, with a laptop and proximity to a local coffee shop. Since then, our firm has grown to a bi-coastal practice and represents contractors, suppliers, engineers and property owners in hundreds of claims.

Smiley Law Group’s Scott Smiley was interviewed for the article, wherein he shed some light on the perils and triumphs of “going solo” and running a law firm.
