    From seeing Mr. Smith's work for other clients, I knew that he had a command of the subject matter in a case like mine. At our trial, he knew as much about the science and medicine as the doctors did, and sometimes more. I was impressed by the way he could make the other side's experts agree with him and the way he made very complex medical concepts easy for the jury (and the other lawyers) to understand.
