Michael Smith

Michael has been litigating since 2009 and proudly provides zealous advocacy and compassionate client service to those who have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to the wrongful conduct of another.

Before joining the Virginia Beach office of Geoff McDonald & Associates, P.C., he acquired over a decade of trial and appellate experience defending personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits for multiple insurance companies across Virginia.  

Because of this background, Michael offers his clients valuable insight and unique perspective.

Michael is admitted to practice in all state courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the following federal courts: the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the United States Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

The Virginia Peninsula has been Michael’s home since 1983 when his father’s naval career brought the family to Yorktown.  After graduating from high school there, Michael attended East Carolina University where he received a Bachelor of Science Magna Cum Laude in 2006 and then William & Mary Law School for his Juris Doctor in 2009.  After law school Michael settled in Newport News with his spouse who is also a litigator.  You can often find them enjoying the beautiful waterways and eclectic neighborhoods of Coastal Virginia, boating on Lake Gaston, or traveling abroad in their free time.

Please reach out to Geoff McDonald & Associates, P.C., to speak with Michael about helping with your personal injury or wrongful death claim today.
