Smith, Lease & Goldstein, LLC, is a full-service law firm representing individuals and business clients throughout Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Based in Rockville, Maryland in the heart of Montgomery County, the firm has a sophisticated and diversified litigation (both civil and criminal), appellate and business and employment law practice and has provided expert legal guidance and representation to its clients since it was founded in 2000.

We possess the breadth of knowledge and experience to rival most large firms while retaining a commitment to providing personal service and attention. We represent individuals navigating difficult situations in their personal or professional lives. We represent businesses in all manner of cases, from routine contract negotiations, to complex business litigation. It is not unusual for us to represent a company suing its contracting partner for millions of dollars; nor is it unusual for us to be handling a wage claim for an executive, an individual's criminal or traffic matter, or a sensitive political corruption case. Whatever the scope of our representation, we pride ourselves on our aggressive approach, our responsiveness to our clients, and our efficiency.

We know how important each matter is to our clients. Therefore, we try to remain in constant contact with our clients, updating them on case developments, promptly responding to inquiries and forwarding to clients our work-product, so that the client always knows what is happening in the case.
