Birmingham Attorney T. Shane Smith acquired his law degree after studying psychology at the graduate level at the University of Southern Mississippi. A long-time learner, Shane sought to apply his interest in the fields of behavior and motivation to the practice of law. Shane uses that knowledge today to run a successful and thriving family law practice. He seeks to zealously guide his clients through the legal process and help them, one-by-one, create a functional home environment out of the dysfunction with which they may present.
Shane has a lengthy career as an advocate for children, having taught daycare to help pay his way through graduate school. While in law school, Shane served as the clinical coordinator at Birmingham Neuropsychology at Brookwood Medical Center.
