The service provided by attorney Raymond Panneton a paralegal Catherine Bailey was thorough and professional in all respects. Bit attorney and paralegal ensured complete understanding of documents and changes necessary prior to submission to court. I would give them a five-star rating for professional service and recommend the Ted Smith Law Firm to anyone needing representation in divorce proceedings.

I wish I could give 10 Stars! Very well deserve. I highly recommend Ted Smith and his law group. I will never again try and fight Social Security by myself. Being a 100% Disabled Veteran... Ted, Carole and Crystal always kept me informed as to my case and gave me the best legal advice possible. I was finally awarded Social Security and it was because of them! Thank you!

I cannot write a short review and simply state Mr. Ray Panneton and his paralegal Ms. Barbie King did a great job representing me. In early 2021 during the Pandemic they were always available with a live voice. They also refunded a portion of my escrow, eventhough they helped me so much with my personal limitations. As a client, I didn't expect to be updated very often. I didn't worry, they didn't place stress on me. Ms. Barbie, Mr. Ray's paralegal always greeted me as a person over the phone or by email. I am medically speech impaired, but Ms. Barbie was patient, polite and I never felt she avoided speaking to me. This was not the first law firm that had worked on my case, I will not hesitate to ask for their representation again. I came through my case with the help of Mr. Ray because I couldn't get documents to him, but he sent someone to my home to get them and return them. I would have missed appearing for a most important event in my case. Mr. Ray did not let that happen. Ms. Barbie gave me the information I needed to attend my first ZOOM meeting. That nudge as a solution, not only allowed me to be present, but now I no longer miss my medical appointments . I am so grateful to them. I would suggest appreciating Mr Ray's paralegal , Ms. Barbie. Keep in mind also you are not their only client, but you do matter.
