I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. I attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, graduating in 1984. I went on to law school at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and received my law degree in 1987.
The early part of my legal career was spent representing insurance carriers. After 13 years, I wanted to use my knowledge and experience to represent people who have been injured and families who have needlessly lost a loved one.
I have been lead trial counsel in over 3,000 cases and had over 200 of these cases taken to a verdict. I have litigated cases involving civil rights, class action torts, medical malpractice and nursing home negligence and abuse cases. I have prepared in-depth analysis of amendments to statutes and regulations and projected their impact on legal strategies.
I have created, trained and led successful litigation teams responsible for extremely complicated legal issues. I have also routinely developed and implemented proactive case strategies to prevail in highly challenging and contested legal battles.
I am a certified mediator in the State of Ohio.

What I Can Do For You
Like all the attorneys at Slater & Zurz LLP, I am focused on getting results for my clients while providing them with unparalleled service and sound guidance. 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. Over the course of my 23-year career, I have secured multi-million dollar settlements and received numerous jury verdicts in excess of $100,000.
The best way for me to explain how I may help you is allowing my clients to tell you about their experience with me:
“Mr. Delahunty was a superb attorney to work with. I was contacted at every level or step that was being taken. He explained everything to me in detail. He went the extra mile! He investigated and read the reports. He informed me of things that were happening and that were going to happen. He briefed me on what to expect during each step of the way. I was always involved as part of the process, which truly surprised me. Everything was explained in great detail. He took time to listen to me and answered all of my questions. He was not only thorough but I would say aggressive where he needed to be and passionate when he needed to be. He is one of most professional individuals I have ever worked with. I would not hesitate to recommend or retain him again. I cannot say enough about this GREAT attorney. Please do not hesitate to retain him as an attorney when you need one!”
I practice law because I want to make a difference in peoples’ lives. I want to help people hold those they have placed their trust in accountable when they fail that trust.
