At SMS Law Firm, we not only provide high quality legal services at fair prices, but we also work hard to develop lasting relationships with clients. We have served hundreds of satisfied customers, both large and small alike, effectively tackling a wide range of legal problems. Selecting a properly qualified law firm to aid in your legal matters involves thoughtful consideration and proper research. The following are a handful of testimonials from past clients explaining why SMS Law Firm was the right choice for their needs.

When I moved to California to start my own business, I was not sure of the little differences in law between NJ and CA. Luckily, I was referred to SMS by a friend.

In particular, I needed help with creating a professional and formal contract for use with my clients. I have previously used a contract which I had drafted myself. I needed some help making sure the terms were lawful and useful.

I discussed this with James from SMS. He helped me draft a brand new contract. I missed many loopholes which James pointed out to me.

When I walked in the office, I immediately felt welcomed. It is a family atmosphere and a tight knit team. While James was working directly with me, others on the team were looking up specifics of the law to help me understand what was the difference in my contract vs how I can protect myself from fraud and lawsuits.

I would definitely use their services again as well as recommend them to anyone. I know they cover many disciplines of law (family, immigration, etc) and I have not heard a bad thing about them.

After a loved one passed away, my family was fighting over inheritance.  After researching multiple law firms and meeting with our top three choices, we decided to use SMS Law Firm.  The associates at SMS Law Firm were able to handle all of our problems tactfully, professionally and respectfully.  Their services were excellent and at a price I could afford.  I’m extremely happy that I chose this firm, thank you!

Atty. Stella Shih and her son James Shih were simply top notch in handling our Immigration case. Going through the ins and outs of the INS process was stressful by itself, but Atty. Shih laid everything out on the table and was very detailed and efficient on how we would be able to achieve our goal. James was very accessible and corresponded with us on a regular basis, making sure that we were in the loop on things. Thanks to their hard work, diligence and efficiency – we got our naturalization approval within 6 months from the time they filed our paperwork!!!!!

SMS Law firm has been very helpful. I’ve had so much trouble with the complexity of my case along with the below-the-practices of the other party I’m constantly facing. SMS Law firm has ethics. They’ve always played by the rules. There’s been many times when James was up late working on my declarations making sure they are ready before their deadlines.
Due to the nature of the other party it’s been stressful to me there had been many times when I can call up James just to chat about the ongoing issue and he assures me that his office will do the best to take care of me. They weren’t lying.

I’m thankful that I came across them, honestly, I don’t think I could find any better to represent me.

Have them help you out, you won’t regret it.

Thank you to Atty. James Shih and his team! He has helped me though a very long 19-month child custody battle. I have 100% custody of my children and got the child support my children deserve. I am so thankful that they have worked with me and help me with the battle.

Thank you so much!
