We are pleased to welcome Arianna Smith as an attorney handling civil litigation and family law matters.

A litigator with an extensive background in public and administrative law, Ms. Smith previously served as a staff attorney at the Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas (CLEAT) and as a litigator in private practice.

“Arianna is a perfect fit for our firm and our clients,” said shareholder Elayna Naftis Erick. “We provide a concierge-level of service to our clients, and Arianna has the track record of commitment and quality our clients expect.”

Ms. Smith said her ideal case “provides a challenge as well as an emotional element. I enjoy championing the underdog and giving a hundred percent of myself to each case, no matter how large or small.”

In addition to her legal work, Ms. Smith volunteers with the Marbridge Foundation, a residential community that offers lifetime care to adults with a wide range of cognitive disabilities. She also provides pro bono services for the Texas Civil Rights Project, which includes advocating for disability rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
