    Like my prior review for Bobby's trusts & estates classification, Mr. Highsmith certainly warrants M-Hs AV rating. He is a zealous advocate for his clients, fair, conscientious and communicative. He is well respected in the legal community, and the community at large, always actively involved in many local civic causes. Now, as an elected member of our County School Board, he has the opportunity to benefit our children on a dynamic level.

    As a Circuit Judge assigned to the Probate Division, among others, it is a pleasure to see him in my Courtroom. Due to the caliber of his work, he rarely appears in front of me. His cases, formal or adversarial, almost always result in my signing the Order Closing the Estate. As probate is only 10% of my cases, I have called him in the past for general probate related advice.

    Bobby is an excellent lawyer that is truly deserving of Martindale's "AV" rating. He is competent, conscientious and communicates well with clients. I have known him for years and am glad to say he is one of the guys with whom his word is his bond, nothing in writing needed.
