Firm

Michael H. Smith

Smith Barid, LLC are Savannah attorneys who help clients with wills and trusts, tax planning, elder law and special needs planning.  We serve clients in Chatham, Effingham, Bryan, Bulloch, Liberty, Long, Evans, Tattnall, Glynn and Camden counties and elsewhere throughout Georgia.
We work collaboratively with clients and their advisors to create plans that will truly make it easier for your family when you pass away or suffer disability.  It’s important to get your team “on the same page” when creating a plan so that your wills and trusts integrate properly with everything your financial planner and CPA or accountant have done. We like to bring together the different members of the team early in the process and keep everyone important to the process of creating your estate plan informed.
