Knowing more about our lawyers is important for our clients to feel comfortable when selecting a firm. On this page we will introduce our firm's lawyers.

Martin Smith
Consultant and the Firm's Founder


Martin was born in 1950 and was admitted to the roll in 1976.  He was for 8 years a partner in a City firm before starting the firm in 1988. While Martin excels in all areas of the law, he most enjoys being in a courtroom.  He is married to Rachel who also works in the practice.  They have 3 children one of whom tragically died in 2000 aged 18.  Martin has appeared many times on TV and Radio programmes.  One of his cases was made into a Crime Limited documentary.  He is also the author of "Setting Up and Managing a Small Practice - a Guide for Solicitors" which is published by The Law Society.  His book of legal precedents was published in 2007 also by the Law Society and is now in its 2nd edition.

She then held several positions with Hertfordshire firms before becoming Head of Legal Services for national builders Laing Homes Limited and later Head of Property at Hancock Quins in Watford. She has more than a quarter of a century of conveyancing experience.

Stephen Rehder


Educated at University College School Hampstead Stephen was an enthusiasic rugby player but confesses to have been only of modest ability. Originally he trained in the City and shortly after qualification moved to Borehamwood where he has both lived and practised ever since. Stephen deals exclusively in residential and commercial conveyancing.  He was admitted to the roll in 1974 and has over 30 years conveyancing experience.


Although not a lawyer, we couldn't introduce our firm to you without mentioning Linda Brown.  The chances are that the first voice of Martin Smith & Co you hear will be Linda's cheerful and professional greeting on our reception.  A local girl, Linda has been with the firm since 2002.  Linda acts as telephonist, receptionist and legal secretary  to our two partners.
