Do you need an excellent, responsive, and experienced transactional attorney? Do you want a real estate attorney who won’t pass you off to a paralegal? If so, Mackey Law Group partner T.R. Smith is your guy.
T.R. is a graduate of Florida State University College of Business, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance in May of 2009. He stayed-on at Florida State and earned his law degree in May of 2012, being admitted to practice in 2013. Due to his hard work and dedication to his practice, as of January 1, 2020, T.R. is a partner of the firm.
T.R. is an accomplished transactional attorney. He regularly performs residential and commercial real estate closings. T.R. goes above and beyond for every single client to ensure that his transactions close. In fact, T.R. frequently goes to his Realtors’ offices to close their transactions, realizing the service nature of the lawyer business. T.R.’s dedication to his work has helped keep Mackey Law Group’s real estate closing practice on the map with the realtors. We perform a lot of closings! T.R. also performs business formations and transactions, drafts estate planning documents, and guides clients through the probate administration process.
T.R. is also a winning civil litigator. T.R. has successfully handled a variety of contested matters, including real property disputes, probate litigation, and recently a Federal District Court contract case. T.R. procured a favorable judgment in the Federal District Court case, which was then appealed to the Federal Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. T.R. successfully defeated the appeal, with the higher court affirming the jury verdict from the Federal District Court in Tampa. Unlike most real estate attorneys, T.R.’s hands-on litigation experience gives him a unique perspective on guiding transactions to conclusion; he sees what can go wrong, as opposed to drafting documents in a vacuum as most “real estate attorneys” do.
T.R. is a Floridan. He grew up in Parrish and graduated in 2004 from Lakewood Ranch High School. T.R. now resides in Parrish with his wife, the former Reagan Wells, and their son Camden. T.R.’s interests include watching and attending sporting events, spending time with his friends and family and enjoying the beaches of Anna Maria Island.
