Smith Hulsey & Busey offers a unique opportunity for high-quality, substantive work typically found in national or regional firms, but in the collegial environment of a smaller firm.  We empower our lawyers to pursue professional achievement in a culture that values performance and integrity.

We have chosen to remain independent because we value camaraderie, quality of life, personalized mentoring, and the ability to make decisions without organizational bureaucracy. With strong client relationships, a network of affiliated law firms worldwide and a diverse and growing city, Smith Hulsey & Busey offers opportunity for ambitious, talented individuals.

Where We Live

Jacksonville has experienced steady growth over the last decade, becoming one of the country’s best places to work . With a metropolitan area that is home to 1.5 million people, the First Coast offers an abundance of sophisticated retail, dining and service offerings balanced with a strong sense of community that other large Florida cities have struggled to preserve.

When it comes to lifestyle, Jacksonville is defined by water. The city literally surrounds the outflow of the expansive St. Johns River into the Atlantic Ocean. We make the most of the river aboard the Windsong , a boat the firm hosts for social outings and client entertainment, including Jacksonville Jaguars football games

The Atlantic Ocean borders the city on the east, offering 22 miles of beautiful white sand beaches . Many of our employees live in beach neighborhoods, a 30-minute commute from our downtown office, or in Jacksonville’s historic in-town neighborhoods, most of which are within a 15-minute drive.
