Thank You To Our 2022 Annual Sponsors & Partners



Nuestra filosofía es de respetar fielmente el lenguaje de la justicia, expresado en palabras tales como: Igualdad; Respeto; Integridad and Justicia

Estas palabras reflejan los valores que nos fueron enseñados de niños y definen quienes somos como ciudadanos del mundo. Pero, muy frecuentemente, son solo palabras.

Nuestra firma vive estos valores seriamente y ellos están reflejados en nuestra práctica profesional.

Nuestros valores se demuestran cada día en la forma en que practicamos derecho: por la dedicación de nuestros abogados y personal, por las relaciones de confianza mutua que forjamos con nuestros clientes y por nuestra constante dedicación al servicio comunitario.

Por más de 40 años nuestra firma ha representado miles de clientes que han buscado justicia en beneficio de ellos mismos y de sus seres queridos.


The attorneys and staff at Smith, Ball & Báez focus exclusively in the area of personal injury law. They have represented injury victims in cases involving every type of loss, including wrongful death, catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries, as well as injuries involving defective products and medical malpractice. Many of these cases have resulted in million-dollar settlements and verdicts, double and triple the amounts offered by insurance companies when injury victims don’t have strong legal representation.

Smith, Ball & Báez is deeply rooted in the Hispanic community. Partner Nelson Báez is a past president of the Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association and current member of the Board of Directors for the Guatemalan Maya Center. Half of the staff at Smith, Ball & Báez are fluent Spanish speakers, including Nelson Báez, paralegals Kimberly Simpson and Amarys Reyes and support staff Yaiselin Gomez, Isabel Quinde and Isabella LeFort. Because of our language skills and legal experience, we have helped hundreds of Spanish speaking families throughout Florida and Latin America (including Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia) receive the justice they deserve. At Smith, Ball & Báez we make sure language and country of origin are not barriers to justice.

John (Jay) M. Scarola started his career in the insurance industry as a Financial Service Specialist with Met Life Financial Services. After spending a year as an agent for Met Life, he decided to make the switch to the Structured Settlements business in early 2001. Since joining Millennium Settlement Consulting (now Sage Settlement Consulting) in February 2001, Jay has dedicated his time to helping catastrophically injured clients maximize their settlement proceeds. Jay's practice is based out of West Palm Beach Florida, but his willingness to help has taken him up and down the East Coast of the United States and as far west as Nevada. In addition to assisting injury victims, Jay has expanded his practice by working with Commercial Litigation claimants in helping them maximize their settlement proceeds as well.

Jay has obtained the distinguished Certified Structured Settlement Consultant designation through the NSSTA program developed in conjunction with the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business Executive Education Program.
