Dedicated to you.

30 years of experience

Smylie & Van Dusen is a San Diego law firm that’s helping small businesses and individuals make the best legal choices every day.

We’re dedicated to upholding our fiduciary obligation to you – the client.

Our goal is to solve our client’s legal issue to the client’s satisfaction in the most cost-efficient manner possible. Individually, we both have over 30 years’ experience solving legal problems in a variety of areas, including business, real estate and general litigation. Our experience enables us to assess each client’s problem and efficiently get to the heart of the matter to avoid unnecessary legal fees, and to determine whether trial, mediation, or informal negotiation is in the client’s best interest. If we do not have the expertise to handle your matter, we will refer you to a lawyer that does.

Since 2001, we have held a Martindale-Hubbel® AV Preeminent® Rating (Highest Level of Professional Excellence).  We are listed yearly as a Top Lawyer by San Diego Magazine.

We ensure prompt responsiveness to our clients.  We look forward to assisting you in solving your legal issues!
