Jason Smith Featured in Missouri Lawyers Media Q&A Spotlight

December 5, 2023

Spencer Fane attorney Jason Smith recently shared the best career advice he’s ever received in Missouri Lawyers Media’s monthly Legal Limelight feature in its November issue.

“This actually came from a client, and it came right after we had unsuccessfully tried a case and received a bad outcome. If you get in the ring, sometimes you’re going to get hit and knocked out, but you have to get back up. Again, this was right on the heels of a significant loss, but that’s always stood out to me,” Jason said. “I would paraphrase that as – in this career, you’re going have ups and downs; you’re going to have wins and losses; you have to be resilient, and you have to be able to take the down times and keep going.”

His spotlight includes the fact that Jason joined Spencer Fane in 2014, has been named Office Managing Partner for the firm’s Springfield office and, earlier this year, the Springfield Business Journal named him a Trusted Adviser.

At Spencer Fane, Jason is a trial lawyer who represents clients from individuals to Fortune 500 companies in business matters and litigation throughout the country. Jason has defended class action cases for clients such as retailers, banks, and universities.
