Practice Areas

At the Law Offices of Bernadette A. Smith, P.C., we focus on three core practice areas: employment law, family law, and criminal defense.  Clients often have problems that overlap from one area of the law to another.  Work problems can impact family life.  Marital problems sometimes spillover into physical altercations and calls to 911.  Our office is equipped to handle multi-faceted cases because real life can be complicated.  Although the details of our clients’ cases vary considerably, all share the same desire for respectful and proactive representation.

Our Core Beliefs

At the Law Offices of Bernadette A. Smith, P.C., we believe that all clients deserve to be treated with respect and compassion. We also believe that clients deserve complete honesty which usually involves good news and bad news. We serve our clients appropriately by delivering the real facts based on the law and on our experience, not alternative facts.

We believe that our clients deserve respect not only from their attorney, but also in their everyday lives. They deserve to pursue meaningful work in a healthy environment without facing discrimination or threats of retaliation. They deserve to feel comfortable in their own homes. They deserve fair treatment from law enforcement officials and in court. When these needs are not met, clients deserve access to somebody who will fight for their rights.

We’re determined to make our beloved hometown of New York City a better place, and we pursue this ambitious goal one client at a time.
