Globally Recognized as Advocates for Justice

The Smith Law Firm is a nationally and internationally recognized firm due to its success and ingenuity, having initiated and litigated class action lawsuits and newly recognized torts. Allen Smith founded the Smith Law Firm, PLLC in 2007, and since its inception has fought for those injured and killed by defective products or wronged by major corporations.

The Smith Law firm started talcum powder and ovarian cancer litigation, filing the first case in South Dakota in 2009. Since that time, the Smith Law Firm has served as lead counsel on every talc and ovarian cancer case in the United States and Canada. One of Allen’s greatest honors has been fighting on behalf of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer due to genital talc use.

In the podcast “Verified: Dust Up,” Host Natasha Del Toro and the Verified team ask tough questions about whom we trust and why.

NBC News

On July 30, 2017, Allen appeared on NBC News, “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” – Talc on Trial

Kate Snow reports on the heated debate over talc, the main ingredient in baby power, which some believe can increase the risk of ovarian cancer. In the 18 months leading up to the interview, juries have ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $300 million in damages while the company, which is appealing, insists their product is safe.
