C.J.’s dream came true when Kaely, his daughter, joined his law firm, Williams, Smith and Summers, P.A. in 2008. Subsequently, C.J. and Kaely opened Smith and Frye P.A., a boutique Mt. Dora law firm that concentrates its practice in Family Law, Probate, Estate Planning and Guardianship.
Early on, C.J. and Kaely distinguished themselves academically, both finishing near the top of their law school classes. With more than 50 years of combined practice experience, the firm has served the needs of thousands of clients. These satisfied clients regularly refer their friends and acquaintances.
Importantly, the firm proudly enjoys the respect of its peers. Martindale Hubbell, the legendary lawyer rating service, has bestowed its highest AV® Preeminent rating upon Smith and Frye P.A. during each year of its existence. Both C.J. and Kaely have been recognized by Florida Super Lawyers. C.J. has been named a Super Lawyer, given to the top five percent of all Florida lawyers, in consecutive years. Kaely has been named a Florida Super Lawyer Rising Star, given to the top 2.5 percent of lawyers under 40.
When a client hires C.J. or Kaely, the client often receives the skill and expertise of both lawyers, as C.J. and Kaely regularly discuss and evaluate their respective cases. Few firms can match this level of attention.
I cannot say enough good things about CJ and the Smith & Frye staff. Very professional and ethical practice. Their combined experience and knowledge is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone especially in the area of family law.Divorce- April 27, 2019

“Highly recommend Smith & Frye as Mr. Smith was recommended to me several times as the best attorney in Lake County. I was completely satisfied with him and his staff during my case. All were very professional, experienced, knowledgeable and attentive to my needs.”Divorce- January 01, 2019
“We could not have had a better experience than we did with Kaely and Katie during a very difficult time. They handled the probate of my mother’s estate with courtesies, professionalism, and attentiveness. They made the process painless.
I retained Kaely after a 3 year battle of being unrepresented during and following my divorce, as I fought a battle over my marital settlement agreement. In one appointment Kaely was able to exonerate me from all the wrongdoings from the past 3 years! I was so impressed by her willingness to see me hours before this very pivotal moment. She did this with the utmost professionalism, and executed with incredible precision. It is very easy to see why she has such a great reputation!Divorce- March 02, 2018
