Avera & Smith’s Experienced Attorneys fight for your rights

When Bill Avera began practicing law more than 60 years ago, he set the bar for uncompromising excellence in legal skills, ethics and personal care that are the standards of Avera & Smith, today.

The fact that his sons Mark Avera and Lance Avera both chose law as a profession and subsequently joined him in practice was perhaps one of the biggest personal rewards he achieved during his many years as an attorney. Though he was semi-retired by the time of his death in 2009, he was still active in the community, both personally and professionally, and was gratified to see the firm grow to what it is today under the leadership of his sons and their partners, Rod Smith and Dawn Vallejos-Nichols.

With more than 100 years of combined service, the four current partners of Avera & Smith offer an unparalleled combination of experience in personal injury cases and other areas of practice. We hope you’ll take a moment to review their bios to get to know why Avera & Smith is the best choice when you are in need of legal help.
