Why Strongfirm.com?

Other than the obvious reason that it is easier to remember than SSMW.com, we wanted to emphasize the long term nature of our practice.  The origins of the Firm can be traced back to 1855.  In 1922, George V. Strong (1893-1964) joined the firm of Lewis Lawrence Smith which had been in existence since 1855, and the name of the Firm was changed to Smith & Strong.  Mr. Strong’s son George V. Strong, Jr. (1925-2002) joined the Firm in 1952 and continued as a senior partner in the Firm until his retirement in 1998.  Over the decades, the Strongs (and the many other attorneys who were partners, members and associates of the Firm) wrote hundreds of wills and trusts and represented thousands of clients.  Over the generations, the Firm has administered estates, guided trustees, worked out disputes over real estate and inheritances, and assisted each succeeding generation with its planning needs.  We hope to serve our client base for generations to come.   As a final and important point, we do not have a threshold; we work with plenty of clients with minimal assets, as well as those with more substantial holdings.  We hope this encourages you to consider speaking with us to update your plans as family milestones and business situations come across your horizon.  –Emory, Jim, Debbie & Tom
