These last several months have been trying with the passing of my baby sister. Her girls, my nieces, and myself have been struggling. Rachel Collins has shown us so much compassion as we prepare to probate my sister’s estate. We are grateful and thankful for Rachel. Question after question, the littlest things. She was kind, patient and caring while showing our family the upmost professionalism. Just as I was asking Rachel if she would consider being our family lawyer for other events, she announced that she is relocating due to her military spouse. She assured me, the staff at Ted Smith was capable, and I would be left in good hands. I just want to shout out, God Bless Rachel and her family. I wish them continued success in their journey. And to Thank Rachel for her exceptional communication skills and professionalism during our time of sorrow. God Bless.

I was very well represented by Raymond Panneton with Ted Smith Law Group. Raymond is an excellent lawyer and I don’t give that up easily. I had high expectations going into my very tough Personal Injury claim and Raymond delivered above and beyond those expectations. First of all, communication is very important to me and Raymond never missed a beat, his timing is impeccable and accurate, he was never late nor did he leave me wondering where I stood on my claim. He was very articulate and concise in answering all my questions. Also, I found that he was always assessable though he has a busy schedule. Second, I needed a lawyer that was aggressive and represented me as if he was fighting for his own family, with that in mind, Raymond was able to secure a settlement far above my expectations that helped me and my family in a very tough situation.I very rarely give reviews because I have such high expectations in professionalism and results but this is one of those rare times a Five Star review is warranted. One last word on Raymond’s performance as my lawyer; the attention to detail and clarity given in written documentation is a breath of fresh air, not to mention all verbal communication was to the point and never inaccurate in content. I can honestly say that Raymond is very sharp with the kind of clear thinking you want on your team fighting for you, it is no wonder my case had such a favorable outcome.Great Job Raymond! Thank you for representing me with the aggressiveness and passion you put into my case, you come with my high recommendation to all who need a job done right!

The Ted Smith Law Group has helped me out with a number of different cases & has given me a tremendous amount of solid legal advice. Most recently, my attorney Raymond (Ray) Panneton helped me win a huge settlement in an auto claim. He was incredibly aggressive and tactical in his negotiation with the counter parties insurance company. From the onset he established a plan of attack, told me exactly what they would, how they would negotiate, and how we would respond. It was like getting to read the movie script up front and then watching it play out. He more than doubled their initial settlement offer, which is pretty unheard of. Really top shelf work, highly recommend you work with Ray & this Firm!
