Michael T. Smith

Attorney at Law

A Proud Fighter For Employee Rights

Michael T. Smith has always been a fighter.

From his days as a military police officer in the U.S. Army to his practice of taking on large companies and federal agencies in the courtroom today, he has believed in standing up for his convictions and battling for the rights of others. After serving in the Army, Michael joined the Downers Grove police department, where he further honed his sense of justice and fairness.

Michael then decided to fight for what’s right in a different way by becoming a regional administrator for the rehabilitation department of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

"I make a point to educate my clients throughout the process so they can feel more confident in their pursuits of justice."

But it wasn’t until attending The John Marshall Law School that he found his true calling. As a law student, he was fascinated with constitutional law and the federal statutes that protect our civil rights.

Serving Naperville, Wheaton, And All Of Northern Illinois

Now, as a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience under his belt, Michael is focused on one thing—fighting for your rights when you have experienced injustice on the job in Illinois.
