Smith, Smith, Montgomery, & Chamberlain, LLC
Please Join Us in Congratulating Smith, Smith, Montgomery, & Chamberlain, LLC as August's Logan County Chamber Business & Entrepreneur of the Month.
Eighty-five years ago, the Honorable John C. Hover and J. Ewing Smith joined together to create the law practice of Hover & Smith. In 1966, J. Ewing Smith's son, J. MacAlpine (Mac) started at the firm, and in 1971, William R. Montgomery joined the team. The firm then became known as Smith, Smith, and Montgomery. In 1992, Douglas M. Smith became the third generation of the Smith family to practice law at the firm. Matt Chamberlain became a partner in 2006, when the firm became Smith, Smith, Montgomery, and Chamberlain, LLC.
Recently, the Ohio State Bar Association honored and recognized Mac Smith for serving 50 years as a practicing attorney in the state of Ohio. This honor highlights the sense of history and tradition that the firm is very proud of. Mac and his son Doug represent second and third generations of attorneys who have practiced law in the Logan County community. In addition, Matt Chamberlain is a second-generation Logan County attorney. From the very beginning, Smith, Smith, Montgomery, & Chamberlain, LLC has been a full-service firm, offering clients a broad range of services, but with a "small-town" feel. Throughout the years, the practice has had a core of attorneys who were born and raised in Logan County, and who chose to stay in the community they love in order to serve their friends, family, and neighbors. Currently, the firm concentrates its practice in the areas of estate planning, probate and trust establishment and administration, real estate, civil trial practice, personal injury, as well as business and transactional law. Their clients include individuals, families, and several Logan County area companies, both in the for profit and non-profit sectors. In addition to Logan County, the firm assists clients in Champaign, Hardin, Union, and many other Ohio counties.
The firm believes the most powerful marketing tool for their business is their reputation. From simple legal issues to complex litigation, they care about providing professional and worthwhile services to their clients and community. They are staunch advocates for their clients, and strive to represent them with integrity, as well as provide them with prompt, effective, and personal service.
The firm has enjoyed a long partnership with the Logan County Chamber of Commerce and its' member businesses. Members of the firm have served as president or members of the Chamber of Commerce's Board of Directors. They are firm believers in the philosophy that a "rising tide lifts all ships," and that by working with the Chamber of Commerce on building stronger businesses, community services, and improving local education infrastructure, the entire community grows to attract new residents, employees, and new businesses. This growth is positive news for the entire Logan County community, which the firm has proudly served for over three quarters of a century.
We thank the team at Smith, Smith, Montgomery, & Chamberlain, LLC for their membership to the Chamber since its inception and their years of service and commitment to the residents of Logan County and the Chamber!
