Weatherford Attorney Mac Smith announces the merger of his law office with one of the top law firms in Fort Worth--Harris, Finley & Bogle, P.C. (HFB).
In 1977, Charles Harris and Dee Finley started a law practice in Fort Worth that has grown over the years to include 34 attorneys with significant expertise practicing in a wide variety of legal matters. When approached by HFB to open an office in Parker County, Mac was thrilled at the opportunity. For the past several years, Mac has tried cases and worked with a number of attorneys at HFB. Andy Sims of HFB believes that Mac was the obvious choice when searching for a Parker County partnership.
"Mac and I have worked together for years, and we have tried some lengthy cases together in Weatherford and Fort Worth,” Sims said. “He is a talented attorney and we appreciate the opportunity to work with Mac and his long-time assistant, Margaret Morris, and paralegal, Kim Cherryhomes. Mac, Margaret, and Kim are the perfect fit to help us jointly meet the legal needs of our existing and future clients in Weatherford and Parker County and surrounding counties."
Since launching his solo practice last year, Mac realized the huge need for a full service law firm. Mac has been inundated with a wide variety of legal needs of his clients and is pleased to be able to offer legal services related to Administrative Law, Appellate, Arbitration and Mediation, Banking and Finance, Bankruptcy & Business Reorganization, Business, Civil Trial Litigation, Corporate, Criminal Defense, Estate Planning and Probate, Labor and Employment, Litigation, Oil and Gas, Personal Injury and Real Estate.
