"For my divorce, I was lucky enough to work with a team - Ali Smedley, Esq. and Ryan Foran, Esq. Ryan is down to earth, easy to speak with, and knowledgeable in what's naturally an overwhelming experience. When I needed him to convey certain matters for me, he wrote on my behalf so perfectly, I asked if he could hear me cheering a few towns over. Ali is the woman you want on your side. She'll fight for you and make you feel like a friend. Overall, you’ll breathe easier with these attorneys on your case."
"Ali has been by my side every step of the way, since my divorce was finalized over six years ago. I retained her again just over a year ago to help me through some child support and custody issues I had with my ex. The whole firm staff is great. I know they deal with so many other people than just me, but I always feel that they take the time right then and there to help me. I’ve never gotten the feeling that that my issues aren’t important."
"I saw Ali in court trying a case while I was waiting for my case to be heard. I had a very difficult case that was littered with irrelevant details. I needed an attorney who could cut through the nonsense and not get sidetracked. Ali was laser-focused and stuck to the crux of the issue. She’s the best attorney I’ve worked with since my divorce. My only regret is that I didn’t hire her sooner."
"For both of my divorces, I was seeking some specific characteristics in an attorney: honest, straightforward, competent, compassionate, and patient. I also wanted to retain a female attorney, since I felt a woman would be more empathetic to my situation, while advocating for my best interests. Finally, I was looking for an attorney with a successful practice, but not one who was too busy to respond to my needs. That all fit Ali to a T."

"Choosing Smedley Law Group to handle your divorce is an investment in your life moving forward. The first thing I was looking for was an attorney who’d look me in the eye and listen to what I had to say. Ali Smedley is an excellent attorney – and an even better person – and she understood everything I said to her. Working with her has been unbelievable. Before hiring Ali's firm, I had never worked with an attorney before, and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made."
John P. "Jack" Gallagher
“I couldn't be more pleased with the services I received from Ali Smedley, Esq. and her team. Going through a divorce can be very emotional, confusing and difficult. My divorce was all these things plus more! Ali has guided me through every step of the process and always looked out for my best interests. From a legal standpoint, she is competent, very knowledgeable and thorough. Most importantly, she was responsive and a pleasure to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend Ali and her team!”
“I’ll begin our meeting with, 'How can I help you?’ I’ll invite you to tell me your story so we can uncover your 'why’ and what you hope to get out of the process.”
