“For me as a lawyer, its helping the people that need it the most when they are at their lowest that makes my job so rewarding,” Smithpeters says, “and when you as an attorney have put in hours upon hours and sometimes even years advocating and tirelessly working for your injured clients on a single case, it’s the smile of relief on my clients face at the end that makes it worth it.”

Attorney Kolby R. Smithpeters comes from a diverse legal background, however, he found his love and desire for helping the injured early in his law career.

“My first internship or clerkship in law school was working for a personal injury firm in Marion Illinois where I had great teachers and mentors with many years of trial and practice experience. I was eventually offered a full time position upon my graduation from law school at the same personal injury firm prior to beginning my own practice.” Smithpeters noted.

Kolby R Smithpeters has previously worked in the County States Attorney’s office as well as a judicial clerkship in the 5th District Appellate Court of Illinois. The Smithpeters Law Firm LLC will not stop fighting for their clients until amicable solution is achieved or our client receives the maximum compensation that they deserve. Attorney Kolby R. Smithpeters has fought for his clients all the way to the Supreme Court of Illinois.

While the majority of our case load consists of helping the injured, we also practice in other areas such as real estate, employment law, rataliatoriy discharge, discrimination, creditor rights, evictions, insurance disputes, estate planning, probate, business advising, business litigation, business formation, family law, adoptions, criminal, DUI, and more.

Our practice is based in the beautiful Southern Illinois area where our founding member, Attorney Kolby R Smithpeters, was born and raised. “I come from a big family of four brothers and a sister so I guess you can say I learned to fight early and just never stopped given my profession” Kolby says, “I was taught early on that hard work pays off and I still holds true to me today with every client that comes to our door.” Attorney Kolby R. Smithpeters also serves on the Board of Directors at a local hospital in his free time.
