More About Rick
I’m originally from Akron, Ohio. I grew up in a family with close ties to the law. Both my father and grandfather were judges, so there was a pretty good chance that I was going to have a career in the legal profession. I attended college at Bowling Green State University, graduating in 1975. I went to law school at the University of Akron and received both my Law Degree and my Master’s Degree in Taxation in 1982. I have been practicing law for almost 35 years and have handled thousands of cases.
What I Can Do For You
I’ve been practicing law in Ohio for almost 35 years. I firmly believe that every person, no matter who you are, where you live or how much money you have is entitled to justice in our legal system. The system can be complicated and adversarial. My passion lies with helping clients navigate and utilize the legal system so they are treated fairly.
I get results for clients with comprehensive investigation, research and preparation. Then, I aggressively pursue your case. I want to understand every detail and provide you with the information and professional legal advice to make good decisions that deliver you with an outcome that is fair and serves your best interests.
Using my 35 years of experience, I am able to resolve most issues amicably and without the need for a trial. However, if a trial in a court of law is necessary, I bring extensive litigation experience and a respected reputation as a very effective litigator with a proven track record of success.
Perhaps the best way to show you what I can do for you is to allow one of my long-time clients share her thoughts with you:
“I met Mr. Richard Zurz in 1985. He was personally introduced to me by a friend who knew him from his work at Dan Street Detention Home. Richard then helped me establish paternity for my twin sons, and we have been friends ever since.
Richard Zurz has continued to help me, family members, co-workers, friends and business clients. Anytime someone asks for my opinion about a lawyer, I always refer them to Richard. If for some reason, Richard cannot help you, he will find you someone that can.
Richard has personally helped me with my corporate business law, workers comp claims, divorce, lawsuits, car accidents, equipment failure, power of attorney, wills, real estate questions and much more. Richard has always been available to answer my calls or calls you back within a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable of every question I have had for him in the past twenty-six years. Anytime I feel like I need an attorney, I call Richard first for his point of view before making any decisions.
Richard’s name supersedes him in all walks of life. I have recently been taking care of my elderly aunt, and Richard helped me with the power of attorney. During a recent visit with her financial advisor, he noticed that Richard had prepared the power of attorney. He had wonderful things to say about Richard, and said that I was in good hands.
My future and my family’s will be handled by Richard Zurz. I have enjoyed working with Richard Zurz as well as other attorneys of Slater & Zurz.”

Costs for My Legal Services
The cost of my legal services depends on the type of case. For example, personal injury type cases are handled on what’s known as a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs and fees to clients. We only earn our fee if we prevail in your case. Other types of cases may be handled on an hourly basis depending on the details.
Please don’t let the perceived costs of my legal services make you hesitate to contact me. I am happy to provide you with a free legal consultation that won’t cost you anything whatsoever and you will be under no obligation to hire me or my law firm. During your free consultation we can discuss the details of your case as well as the details related to what the cost will be and when payment is due. Once you have all this information, you can make a decision at your convenience.
