Meet Thomas H. Smith III

Thomas H. Smith III was born and raised in Arlington, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M University in 2002 with a degree in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics. He then attended the University of Houston Law Center where he served as an Articles Editor for the Houston Journal of International Law.

Tom began working at Roger G. Jain & Associates in Houston as a clerk in February 2004. When he graduated from UH Law Center in 2005, he continued there as an attorney and opened Pathways Property Lawyers in 2023. He is a trial lawyer, whose insight, analysis, and attention to detail have helped the firm obtain its favorable results.

Tom has extensive experience not only as a real estate lawyer, but also in contested divorces with asset division, complex probate proceedings, and intricate real estate, construction law and boundary disputes. Tom has a keen eye for assessing a matter from every angle, understanding the strategies that opposing counsel will take, and developing a case strategy unique to nuances of his clients’ cases. Tom understands the unique opportunity that mediation presents for a case, and works with his clients to achieve a favorable outcome quickly and inexpensively whenever possible. When trial becomes necessary, Tom uses his acute understanding of the law and his articulate presentation skills to defend or pursue his client’s claims before a judge and jury and obtain favorable results for his clients.

Tom has assisted his clients with finding the most cost effective and efficient means of navigating the probate & real estate litigation process. This process can be intimidating for the uninitiated, and Tom enjoys simplifying the process for his clients.
