Great, Practical Advice

Accurate, real-world advice! And Smiley seems like a good guy who would be a pleasure to work with—or against—at trial!

Excellent information

In my opinion, any NY PI and Med Mal litigator would benefit from this series. It contains specific, practical advice that can be immediately implemented. Thank you Andrew for sharing your knowledge with us!

Questionable

Not sure if I can trust his legal advice after he gave a 5 star rating on the commercial but it’s clearly a 4.8 quality podcast.
