Chesterfield Smith, America's Lawyer

Mary E. Adkins

University Press of Florida

Smith’s wife, Vivian, died, and Smith quickly remarried Jacqueline Pearce Allee, dean of St. Thomas Law School, more than 25 years his junior. Smith began to see the full fruits of his work blossom. The firm opened a community services team, dedicating lawyers and staff to pro bono work. Smith testified before the senate first opposing Robert Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court and then supporting Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s. The firm, under Bill McBride’s management, expanded nationwide and into several countries. Smith continued to work, even as his health began to decline. His proteges Talbot “Sandy” D’Alemberte, Martha Barnett, and Bill Neukom became ABA presidents. Smith died in 2003, at age 85.
