The firm’s litigation practice is focused upon the favorable resolution of complex commercial disputes, real estate litigation, water rights litigation, and administrative litigation in connection with securing government permits and gaining approval of utility rates. The attorneys at Lackey & Smith have significant experience across a broad spectrum of subject matters, and have handled cases in numerous adjudicative forums across the state. Lackey & Smith takes a result-oriented approach to litigation and dispute resolution, and works with clients to define the objective at the onset of the dispute and devise a workable, flexible strategy to make that objective a reality.

The firm understands the importance of collaboration in litigation, and relies upon its collective experience derived from other practice areas in moving toward the goals sought to be achieved. Lackey & Smith prepares cases in full anticipation of trial and/or appeal, but also evaluates and develops innovative strategies aimed at the successful resolution of matters in advance of trial. Should a dispute require trial or arbitration, the firm has substantial trial and appellate experience, and commits unyielding effort to a strong and effective presentation of our clients’ cases.
