Robert Horton, Partner
A personal injury attorney with Slater & Zurz LLP, Robert Horton represents clients in the entire state of Ohio. While he handles all matters of personal injury, he is focused on Slip & Falls, Dog Attacks, and motor vehicle accident cases. With over a decade of experience representing the injured, Mr. Horton is a passionate advocate for those who have been injured by the negligence of another person or entity.
Mr. Horton is admitted to practice in the state of Ohio and is a member of the Akron Bar Association and the Ohio State Bar Association. While in law school, he gained valuable experience as a law clerk for the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office’s Civil Division. Within this division, he worked on complex legal issues, helped defend the county in liability claims, and drafted advisory opinions.
In 2002, Mr. Horton earned a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Akron. He then attended The University of Akron School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor. Since graduation, he has split his time between working for several law firms and as an employee of the National Interstate Insurance Company. There he gained valuable insight into commercial insurance claims working with a large insurer of national commercial lines.
Mr. Horton earned one of his most valuable settlements for a client who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. His negotiation resulted in $675,000 for a client who was rear-ended in a motor vehicle accident. This case was settled through private mediation, and while Mr. Horton is talented at negotiation, he is also prepared to take the case to court if necessary to get his clients the compensation they need.
