The professional legal services provided by Attorney Daragh Carter, with the Smith and Hassler Firm, was extraordinary. I would recommend them as an outstanding legal team for a Personal Injury claim. The process of my P.I. claim took a while, but my injury was complex, with a lengthy recovery. Mr. Carter's personable and compassionate determination, along with his legal team, maintained a steadfast momentum, for many months, protecting my rights, throughout my recovery. He displayed unyielding patience, during all aspects of my claim, keeping me informed and collecting the necessary documentation, for a positive and sustainable outcome. Daragh Carter is an exceptional Attorney and representative of Smith and Hassler and his Christian faith always “shined" through his hard work. I am sure Mr. Carter will do great things for the Firm and in future endeavors. I also appreciate all that Mr. Carter and the Firm have done to improve the quality of my life. Thank you again.

very happy with Daragh Carter. Very meticulous and got me what I felt I deserved. No BS, no false promises. Just results.
Daragh Carter is absolutely amazing! We used him for an auto accident involving a drunk driver. From the moment I called in to his office for advice, I felt totally confident that we would be taken care of. Daragh handled the personal injury claim for us, since my boyfriend suffered injuries when the drunk driver ran a red light. I had never heard of the other driver's insurance company, and I had never been involved in any sort of accident that would warranty us hiring an attorney. We went in for a consultation with Daragh, and he came to the meeting totally prepared. He was kind, and very knowledgeable, and had great advise for how the case needed to be handled. We were informed before each step was taken, and every time I called, the phone was answered. I was able to email Daragh with any questions or concerns along the way, and he always made me feel like we were his only clients. Fast responses that calmed my nerves, and gave me all the information I needed. The other driver's insurance drug their feet, and made an offer that was so low, it wouldn't have even covered the medical expenses. Daragh fought for us, and in the end we were very satisfied with the compensation we received. If I am ever involved in another accident, Daragh at Smith and Hassler will be my first call!
Smith and Hassler will abandon you!! Please avoid at all costs. At 1st they were vey nice regarding my accident case (injury only they didn't car about property damage) but as the other drivers insurance got tough Smith and Hassler got rude and treated me as a problem instead of a client that trusted them. I was hit by an 18 wheeler so I suppose they saw easy $$ but when it got tough I would call weekly (once a week) for an update and never get a call back. My car was banged up for over a month until I shelled out $2000 and fixed it on my own due to very unsafe driving conditions. The other insurance company found a petty loophole to place 51% liability on me which is fine but Smith and Hassler never even had the decency to let me know this nor have they ever contacted me to say they will no longer proceed with my case. NOTHING at all. The other drivers insurance company told me the results and seemed shocked herself that my own lawyers hadn't even informed me. This review is not becaue I am upset with the decision of liability because that is fine with me. The worst part of this whole ordeal is Smith and Hasslers complete disregard of someone they called a client. Again, avoid at all costs, find a lawyer who cares.
Daragh Carter is a jewel. He handled my case against Kroger and Nestles while keeping me calm in the process. There were many times I wanted to go very "left". Each blamed the other for my accident. In the end, he worked it out where their low ball offer after 10 months and 3 days was raised to a number I was very satisfied to hear. I am more than pleased with Smith & Hassler and overly abundantly excited Daragh came through for me! Yes, highly recommended.
Daragh Carter at Smith & Hassler has been the most courteous, professional and hardworking lawyer I have come across so far. He handled my car accident case with utmost diligence and I'm extremely satisfied with his representation. His guidance was timely and perfect, not to mention that by the end of the case I was more than satisfied with the compensation he got me. I highly recommend Daragh Carter and Smith & Hassler Law Offices by extension. Getting him to work on your case will most certainly be worthwhile.

Excellent Houston personal injury attorneys – My wife was rear-ended on the 610 loop near the galleria. The other driver barely touched his brakes and knocked her clear 5 lanes across the highway and into the concrete wall. Our BMW (that we'd had all of a few months) was destroyed. My wife was taken by ambulance to memorial hermann. She followed up with an orthopedist and had an MRI to check her low back. I chose one of Al Hassler's attorneys to advise us and I'm glad I did: I didn't know anything about auto insurance or what's fair, so I wanted the expertise. We got an above blue book settlement on the car, all Medical expenses and her lost wages were covered and there was money left over to compensate my wife. The smith & Hassler attorney also told me about PIP coverage on our own policy (I didn't even know we had it) which meant we got extra dollars on the claim. These guys are well organized and gave us really solid legal advice.
I would highly recommend!! – The attorney we used was Daragh Carter. Excellent!! We had a auto accident and received a very nice settlement and then was surprised by another settlement months later. Even when I thought we don't have a chance in the world winning, Daragh did:) Every time I came up with a reason why we wouldn't he had a reason why we should win. Very positive. Stayed in contact with me many times. Always answered when I called or emailed him. He is so down to earth I felt like he was part of the family. We were treated like it was a huge case and very important to him that we were treated fairly. I always recommend Smith and Hassler (Daragh) to anyone who needs an attorney. I doesn't cost anything to talk to them and if you need to see a doctor they can help with that also. I just can't say enough good things about the firm but you need to see for yourself so please call them if you need help.
A waste of time – I spent a long time on the phone with a lawyer. He seemed pleasant and concerned. He promised a return call in two days. More than two weeks later, still no call. I talked to a receptionist who wouldn't put me through to this man and just told me they couldn't help me. I can understand that but at least he could have called and told me that and told me why. He had the receptionist give me a number to a lawyer referral service. Once they heard who had referred me, they couldn't offer me much help in any other referrals. So, the hospital involved in our case will get away with murder again. Don't people just offer simple courtesy anymore? Certainly not this big company with its grandiose promises and high budget TV ads made off the horryfying suffering of the "little people" out here in the real world.
