“I have been working with Slater & Zurz and Jim Slater for the last 6 years. The professionalism and follow up has been excellent. I trust and value their opinion and I wouldn’t begin to think about looking elsewhere for legal counsel. Jim, and his entire team get top marks from me and my company!”

“Slater & Zurz was recommended by our accounting firm. (Edward C. Hawkins & Co. LTD.) SAM Americas had a disagreement with a disposal company concerning the end of a contract. SAM was being sued for what we viewed as non-existent damages and breach of contract. I was treated with courtesy and professionalism. The matter was settled out of court following negotiations between Slater & Zurz and the plaintiff’s attorney. While the matter was a distraction from normal business and the final settlement was less then SAM’s initial position, SAM was pleased with Slater & Zurz’s performance. Slater & Zurz took on an ugly matter and made it palatable.”

“I have used Slater and Zurz for 25 years. In a long business career, I have had 3 instances of major business litigation. Two of the three cases were clearly won, the third was settled to my clear benefit. Jim Slater has been an advisor, well beyond his role as an attorney, his wisdom has been apparent, and valuable. Rick Zurz is the litigator and he is the sharpest attorney in any room. He knows the case, including details, as well as I. They always take the high road, and this is apparent to judges and juries. I highly recommend Slater and Zurz.”

“I have used Jim Slater’s law firm for my family’s personal cases, I was very pleased on how they turned out. Very helpful and dedicated to his clients.”



“For thirty years, Slater & Zurz have been our attorneys, the lawyers at the firm have always given sound legal advice on both personal and business matters. They have helped us through many business problems with kindness, understanding and sound advice. After our business closed and creditors were harassing us, Jim Slater handled the situation for us. I would recommend them to my friends and family.”
