When Life Gets Legal SM

Philip R. Smith

  • Shareholder Emeritus

"My favorite part of being a lawyer is client contact. I like being a part of a team and interacting with clients, then coming up with creative solutions to the challenges that they face. I also believe that all of my clients deserve a 100% effort, so my goal is to provide the best service possible within every interaction."

Philip ("Chip") is the shareholder in charge of the firm's Westfield office. Chip has broad experience in the areas of both commercial and residential real estate. His additional specialties include corporate, business, and estate planning.
