“Attorney Jim Slater of Slater & Zurz has been our family attorney for 40+ years. Our family life has included marriage, working and raising five children. While life presents many opportunities, some of them are not always good.
When those times arose and we needed legal advice and/or representation, Attorney Jim Slater listened with compassion and provided qualified, professional and confidential legal services. Our association with the Slater & Zurz organization began in 1977.
When another firm negotiated a domestic relations settlement that was not equitable, Mr. Slater accompanied us to court, gaining paternal custody and additional visitation at a time when was certainly not the norm.
Over the years, Mr. Slater has provided legal counsel and representation when members of our family were injured in several car accidents by insured and uninsured motorists alike.
An Illegal stop by a individual masquerading as a police officer brought us to Jim’s office again, this time seeking advice on this disturbing sequence of events. Attorneys from the firm represented us in this court case which sought damages for illegal detainment.
Attorneys from the firm represented us in court as we sought a restraining order against an individual stalking and harassing our special needs daughter. Regardless of the situation, it is comforting to know that the attorneys of Slater & Zurz are there to look out for our best interests.
Slater & Zurz have improved the quality of our lives, protecting us from situations that could have caused additional emotional and/or financial hardship which ultimately resulted in our peace of mind.”
I chose Slater and Zurz because of their ability to handle a wide array of cases. My legal concern was addressed in a timely manner. Furthermore, the total hours for which I was billed compared quite favorably with a benchmark from another firm.
I have also found that Slater and Zurz attorneys and staff return phone calls in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, I have been quite satisfied with how they have represented my interests.”
“I recently had a dog bit case handled by James Slater and Sean Buchanan. They did a wonderful job settling my case and kept me informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend them. I would definitely use Slater & Zurz in the future if the need arose.”
“I had a very bad dog bite and didn’t know what to do.
I contacted Slater & Zurz and couldn’t have been more happy with their help. They were always available to answer my questions (no matter how trivial) and kept me well informed throughout the whole process. Their advise to me was spot on!
I would recommend them without reservation to anyone whp needs a quality attorney!”
“Emotions are high when facing divorce. It is important to have a lawyer who can not only produce positive results in your case, but who can support you, by constantly providing accurate information to settle your mind. Jeffrey Hawkins is an outstanding lawyer who helped me every step of my divorce. His assistant, Margie Thompson, will be there for you too; she provides everything you need quickly and precisely, and always with a smile. There are no winners in divorce, but I feel Attorney Hawkins fought, and won for me, more than my fair share. I highly recommend Jeffrey Hawkins.”
“I recently got into my first car accident and it was a very scary process. My attorney Robert Horton, helped me tremendously throughout the whole process. If I had any questions he was always there for me and was able to relieve any stress I had. After such a traumatic event I am grateful to have been in such good hands. Thank you Robert!”
“Silas Pasani helped with me a residential custody case for my child. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the situation and made himself available for any questions I had throughout the process. Both parties involved were very satisfied and I would go to him again with any legal domestic consultations I might have in the future. I highly recommend Silas to anyone. Also, everyone else I encountered in this law firm was also very friendly and helpful.”
“Going through a divorce after 22 years of marriage is not a pleasant experience. I was referred to Rick Zurz by another lawyer in Akron and he was fantastic. Rick is straightforward and easy to work with. I felt like he personally cared about my outcome and helped me work through some very challenging aspects of my case. He gave me excellent counsel and was always patient. The other thing about Rick is that his communications are amazing. He was there for me whether it was email, phone call or text. He was always on time for our meetings and appearances and clearly knows his way around the county legal system, opposing lawyers and judges. In the end I found his fees to be more than fair and reasonable. I’m glad this is over and that Slater and Zurz represented me. My thanks to both Rick and his assistant Liz. You guys were the best!”
“John Lynette represented me for my case. He was professional and the claim took longer than expected but he was very informative on the situation and kept me up to speed every time I called.”
“Thank you so much for all of your help, support, and work you did on my case. I strongly recommend these lawyers if you need one. Mine was car accident related. They are very smart, kind, diligent, patient, hardworking and friendly. Everyone in their office was very kind to me.”
“I had a domestic case pertaining to child visitation. Slater & Zurz was cooperative in helping me get the proper forms to help me through my struggle to see my children for visitation. They were very expedient in their efforts and I was charged a very minimal fee! I was very pleased with their services. I would recommend their expertise and have used their services when needed.”
“My attorney did a great job in seeing to it that the outcome of the case was within my expectations and didn’t exceed anything I wasn’t willing to undergo. I will use them again in the future should lifes circumstances ever require me to seek legal help and I’ve referred several people to them over the years. You’ll be in good hands should you choose to hire these guys. At least consult with them if your still not sure.”
“Mr. Buchanan was a great representative, handle everything professionally and I highly recommend him in any situation and problem at hand”
“I work in the same building as S&Z they are a great bunch of lawyers. When I ask questions they’re always very informative. Easy going and friendly. If I ever have a need for a lawyer I will go there 1st.”
“Silas Pisani did an excellent job assisting with my case. He always answered any question I had within a 24 hour period. He met me where it was convenient for me and even on a Saturday. He kept me informed and on schedule with the necessary proceedings.”
“Silas Pisani was just what I needed. He’s not what you expect. He was quiet, intelligent, diligent, affordable and kind at all times. He didn’t create any additional conflicts. He just got my divorce done the way I wanted at the initial price he charged.”
“Jim Slater has been our attorney for nigh on 40 years. I remember how he fussed with my husband at first but we learned to trust him and we were all great, great friends. My husband died and I had several things come up and I went back to him. Same Jim after 40 years thoughtful, considerate, confident and friendly”
“I spoke with Randy lastnight at a wedding reception concerning some legal problems I have. He was very gracious and spoke to me about it and I will be contacting him in the near future to discuss the situation better. He was very informative and a very good listener. I appreciated it very much!”
