What I Can Do For You
I became a lawyer to utilize my 20 years of hospital experience as a Medical Technologist and Laboratory Director in a local hospital. Practicing law allows me to help people on a more personal / individual basis than I could in my previous career.
Like all the attorneys at Slater & Zurz LLP, I am focused on getting results for my clients while providing them with unparalleled service. I will respond to your questions promptly, provide you with complete explanations that are easy to understand and cover all options under the law. I will also thoroughly prepare and aggressively pursue your case to achieve the results you desire. By doing this, we will be able to effectively settle your case without the need for trial. In the event that a trial is necessary, I have extensive trial experience with a proven record of success.
The best way for me to explain how I can help you is to allow my former clients to tell you about their experience with me:
“I was involved in an accident where as I was hit from behind twice. A friend told me of Slater & Zurz, I in turn asked Dr. Floros about them and he gave me a good report. I spoke with Attorney John Lynett. We seem to hit it off with understanding my point of view. He made a few suggestions and I asked could he handle the case for me and he said yes. Close contact with attorney and client is good no matter how small the information might be. I believe that John and I have a good relationship. I trust that he will do his job well. John made sure that my case was done quickly and swiftly. I asked him to handle a case for my daughter. I believe I was treated well and would pass him on to others. The outcome of my case was what I had expected, so I believe all were satisfied.”

My most memorable cases
Although I have handled many large cases, involving serious injury and death, my more memorable cases are those where I was able to get a recovery for the client despite factual circumstances that would appear to prohibit financial recovery. Some of those cases involved:
- A man launched from his neighbor’s tree while he was using a chainsaw to remove the top of the tree
- A blind man who stepped into a hole dug by his dog while trying to get out of the way of another man backing a trailer into the blind man’s driveway
- A professional entertainer who was injured when the trapeze from which she was hanging broke
- A man who was burned on the face and neck by chili that he had obtained from a vending machine
- A woman who was injured when the ceiling collapsed in the bathroom of her apartment
- A large man who was injured when he fell through the decking on a public boat dock.
