Kevin G. Smith


Attorney Kevin Smith went above and beyond what I expected.  He was extremely professional and comforting, always keeping me informed.  It was clear he cared about the outcome of my case.
- Former Client

Attorney Kevin G. Smith joined Faulkner & Graves in June 2015. Before that, he was actively engaged in trial work for three years at another widely respected trial law firm. He has represented clients in wrongful death matters, fall downs, accidents involving cars, bicycles and pedestrians, sexual abuse lawsuits and insurance claims. That experience, together with his excellent academic record, make him a significant asset to our practice.

Super Lawyers magazine selected Smith as a "Rising Star" in 2016, an award given only to lawyers falling within the top 2.5% of "up-and-coming" attorneys in our State. We are confident that clients will be further impressed by his legal knowledge, attention to detail and enthusiasm. Indeed, as a result of these attributes, he recently settled three difficult fall down injury cases: $90,000 for a broken wrist suffered by client who slipped in chocolate syrup drippings when walking on the Mohegan Sun casino concourse near the Ben & Jerry's restaurant; $125,000 for a fractured ankle after a fall on an icy sidewalk at the Gales Ferry Post Office; and $135,000 for wrist fractures and other injuries after client fell down an open staircase located near the hostess station in a busy Putnam restaurant.

Smith is admitted to practice in both the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Tribal Courts. He is an active member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, an organization dedicated to the rights of injured persons, and he has been appointed to serve on its Membership Committee.

Smith graduated from Guilford High School and then attended Providence College where he studied Political Science and Sociology. While at P.C. he interned at a domestic violence shelter and was active in Amnesty International. He received a B.A. degree in 2007. He then attended Syracuse University College of Law achieving significant academic success, becoming a member of the prestigious Order of the Coif and serving as the Notes and Comments Editor of the Syracuse Journal of International Law and Commerce. His diligence and talent landed him in the top 8% (14/182) of his class. He capped off his law school honors graduating magna cum laude in 2010.

Smith volunteers at the East Hartford site of The Cove Center for Grieving Children, which is a non-profit grief support program for grieving children and families dealing with the death of an immediate family member. He is also a proud supporter of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut and he actively volunteers his time to them through Young Leaders United, a leadership group for volunteers under 40. Kevin was born and raised in Guilford. He and his wife presently reside in Glastonbury.
