Summerville, SC (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
Having spent his adult life serving clients and the citizens of South Carolina in various positions of authority and respect, Gerald Smoak recently announced that as part of a new focus on his mediation practice he had joined the expanding network of ADR professionals at Mediation.com.
“I’m precisely the sort of professional you want guiding you through mediation,” said Smoak of the move. “I’ve done it all: I served my country in the U.S. Air Force and was discharged a 2nd Lieutenant. I got my law degree and I’ve been in continuous practice for almost 60 years. I was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives and served my fellow citizens from there, and then continued that service as a Circuit Judge for a decade. Now I can continue that service as a mediation professional."
The recipient of the 1997 Trial Lawyer Honoree Award, Smoak is a Certified Circuit Court Mediator. He joined the Murphy Law Firm in 2014, where he concentrates on Family Law, Personal Injury, Civil Litigation, Workers Compensation, and Social Security Disability. He is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law. He served in the House of Representatives from 1970 – 1972, and served as a Resident Circuit Judge of the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit from 1991 – 2000, and then again as the Drug Court Judge in Beaufort County until 2013.
