Thank you for contacting Smidt, Reist & Keleher, PC. While we’re happy to have you contact us by telephone, mail, email, or facsimile about possible representation, contacting our firm or any of our lawyers or staff does not establish an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney‐client relationship requires the consideration of many factors including possible conflicts of interest and whether we can agree on the scope and terms of engagement. Unless these factors are resolved, you should not consider our firm or lawyers to be representing you. In order to protect your interests, you should provide us only with your name, the area of law you believe applies to your issues, and contact information. “BY CLICKING “AGREE” BELOW, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT:”
Tom, who also goes by Tom 2 and Tom Sr. to distinguish himself from his son and law partner, Thomas Smidt III, practices in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration (probates), tax litigation (both federal and state), real estate, corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs). Tom began his legal career as a Trial Attorney in the Tax Division of the United States Department of Justice in Washington, DC, from 1971 through 1976. He moved to New Mexico in 1976 and has been serving clients on a variety of matters since that time. He has litigated large tax controversies involving large corporations, but has also assisted individuals with disputes and collections related to a variety of taxes, including income taxes, capital gains taxes, employment taxes, and gross receipts taxes. He has prepared estate plans (including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney—both financial and health care—and Advance Health Care Directives) for hundreds of New Mexico clients. In addition, he has assisted clients in navigating the probate process both in district courts and probate court and handled ancillary probate proceedings for out-of- state probates. Tom also advises clients on the formation and administration of corporations, limited liability companies, and other business entities.
