Daniel E. Smith II

Personal Injury Attorney
Contact Daniel E. Smith II

Dan Smith is a plaintiff’s attorney with 12 years of experience as a strong client advocate. He has deep roots in Florida, having grown up in the state. He attended the University of Central Florida and the University of Florida – Levin College of Law.

Dan credits his personality, outlook on life, and childhood with leading him on the path to becoming a personal injury attorney. From a young age, he was a tireless advocate for others, but it was not until he started a college internship at a law firm that he realized such advocacy could be put to good use as a personal injury attorney. His study of trial practice and his involvement in Gator Team Child Law Clinic solidified his desire to be a trial lawyer.

Today, he works closely with his clients to achieve shared goals and outcomes, often remaining friends with them long after their case has been decided.

Dan is deeply involved in the local community as a guardian ad litem in Orange County; a member of the Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association and the Orange County Bar Association; and a board member of Family Promise, a relief organization for families struggling with homelessness. He founded Dan’s Donuts for Dad in 2017 to bring fathers and their children together for fun, friendship, and networking.

5 Stars
“I can say most people don’t like lawyers, that is until you need one. Dan is a lawyer that you can’t help but like everyday. I know him to be a great father, husband, and professional. I’m glad i was able to count on him for good and honest advice. I recommend him anytime I hear someone in need. You won’t be disappointed. Do yourself a favor and give him the opportunity to impress you too.”
