The team at C. Ron Smith Attorney at Law works hard to represent our customers with dignity, respect, compassion and experience. We also carry these values outside our office doors and into the communities we serve. The good health and well-being of the people in our community – not only after an injury – but in their everyday lives, are very important to us as well. We actively support a variety of community events focused on healthy living, family participation, and enhanced education.
Woolsey Mercantile Building Restoration Project
Woolsey is the smallest town in Fayette County, but it’s residents had big dreams for the old mercantile building on Highway 92 South. The historic downtown building was gifted by Ms. Josephine Ballard to the Town of Woolsey about 15 years ago to be used “for the good of the community.” With the financial support of 2017 SPLOST funds, restoration of the old building was completed in September, 2018.
Attorney Ron Smith led the restoration efforts, volunteering his time as project manager. And now, after a long history as a store, a bank, perhaps even a jailhouse, the building has a new life as the city’s Town Hall and community center. It offers historic displays, a hub for town events and meeting space for civic groups, clubs, and social organizations — all while focusing on the values and future vision of the Town of Woolsey.

Fayette County Historical Society Member
Attorney Ron Smith was born and raised in Fayette County, Georgia. Because our team has a great interest in our community, our law firm is a proud member of the Fayette County Georgia Historical Society. Located at 195 Lee St. in the Margaret Mitchell Research Center, the FCHS was chartered in 1971 “to discover, collect, preserve and make accessible to the public materials which establish and illustrate the history of the county, its cities, towns, villages and institutions.” It offers research – photos, documents, maps – from the early 1820’s to the present.

Fayette County High School Sports Programs
For students participating in a school sports program, learning some of life’s most important skills just happens. Let’s say they score after running a play they learned at practice; or they give a supportive pat on the shoulder of a teammate for a missed catch — they may be having fun on the field, but they’re also building self-esteem and learning what it means to be a leader, to be a team player, to set goals and solve problems, and to communicate effectively with others. These are skills that transfer directly to their academic success – and as they prepare for their futures. That’s why we at C. Ron Smith Attorney at Law support our local, community high school sports programs, including the Wildcats at Whitewater High School, the Chiefs of McIntosh High School and the Tigers at Fayette County High School.
Peachtree City Rotary Club Grand Prix Race Series
The Peachtree City Rotary Club and Peachtree City Running Club have worked together since 2005 to organize the Peachtree City Rotary Club Elementary Grand Prix Race Series to raise funds for participating schools in our community and raise awareness in the campaign against childhood obesity. We are proud sponsors of many of the elementary school races, including:

Be. Go. Do. Guatemala
Reaching outside our local community, we are also very proud supporters of the Be. Go. Do. Guatemala campaign, which represents the change they wish to be for the children and people of Guatemala.
Be. Go. Do. represents the change they wish to be for the children and people of Guatemala and aims to instill the importance of giving back. International adoptions from Guatemala have shut down and the number of orphans continues to grow by leaps and bounds in this country which has suffered from years of civil war and unethical political rule. This year marks the second year of their Be. Go. Do. campaign to raise awareness and funds for projects to help those in need in Guatemala. The organization traveled back to Guatemala in July to work and help with selected projects such as El Amor de Patricia (orphanage), the “Bunk Bed Project”, the “Backyard School” development and others, as part of their vision to change the lives of thousands of children in Guatemala.
