Chesterfield Smith, America's Lawyer

Mary E. Adkins

University Press of Florida

Smith returned to Arcadia to practice law with a small firm there but shortly was recruited to practice with a firm in Bartow, Florida, in neighboring Polk County. Smith worked hard and soon found himself not only a partner but also running the firm and recruiting lawyers himself. He dreamed of growth and made the growth happen, taking advantage of new ideas such as specialized practice areas, hourly billing, and seeking out and hiring top students. In the meantime, he made himself valuable to the firm’s clients in the citrus industry and the environmentally destructive phosphate industry. Smith and his family would boat nearly every weekend and took some memorable trips.
