Barry Smith B.A., LL.B
Barry Smith is one of the principals of the law firm Neal and Smith, which was founded in 1979. The firm specializes in Real Estate Services and Wills & Estates and believes that, like the scales of justice, there should be a balance between the cost of services and the level of service.  As a result of the firm's commitment to client satisfaction, some of the recognition awarded to Neal & Smith includes:
  • The "Silver Award Winner" in the law firm category in the Toronto Sun Readers' Choice Awards for the Toronto area
  • First place in the "Best Legal Services" category in the 5th annual Reader Selection Awards program of Forever Young magazine.   

Barry has been active in the community for many years so we asked him to tell us: "Why Rotary? Why North Scarborough Club?"   

I was introduced to Rotary by my father-in-law who was a Rotarian in Bermuda. My business partner was also a Rotarian in the Agincourt Rotary Club. When my father-in-law passed away in 1983, I inquired about joining Rotary to honour his memory and continue his commitment to service above self. My partner referred me to Agincourt's sponsoring Club, North Scarborough. I was impressed by the volume and scope of the good work that North Scarborough was accomplishing with very little fanfare. I was also impressed by the good humour and fellowship of the North Scarborough Rotarians. So I joined in 1984 and have enjoyed making a difference through this wonderful club over the years!
