Before working at Jezic & Moyse, Mr. Smith was a client of Jezic & Moyse (read article). In 2006, Mr. Smith was charged with Frist Degree Murder. After two lengthy jury trials and two appellate reversals, Mr. Smith entered an Alford plea to Involuntary Manslaughter and reckless endangerment, with no further jail.  Jezic and Moyse represented Gary for nine years until his last hearing.  He served about six years in prison before being released.

During his six years in prison, Mr. Smith learned a lot about the complexities of the prison system, how to make the best of a bad situation, and how he could better himself while incarcerated.
