Meet Our Attorneys

At Fleet, Smith & Freeman, we provide comprehensive legal representation in the areas of estate planning, business law, real estate and tax law through our local attorneys. Although we have a broad practice, each attorney focuses in one or two areas of law. As a result, our firm provides clients with the best of both worlds — the resources and experience of a general practice law firm with the knowledge and special insight that each attorney brings in his or her focused practice area.
