The Lifetime Achiever is included as part of the Daily Report’s annual Georgia Legal Awards and honors individuals who have left a lasting imprint on the legal community of Georgia.
Smith’s groundbreaking work in public finance law has facilitated major civic projects and residential housing development throughout Georgia for decades.

The Phillips Arena (now known as State Farm Arena and home to the Atlanta Hawks NBA team), economic development from the rental car tax and the tax allocation (TAD) district bond issues, and multi-family affordable housing are all results of her pioneering efforts in the legal field.

Smith will be recognized in a special section of the Daily Report and at a virtual awards event.
