Get to know our law firm and how we will serve you
My name is Jim Slater, I’m the managing partner at our firm and I’ve been practicing law for over 40 years. I appreciate the time you are taking to learn about our law firm. I’m very proud of our history of serving clients and the results we consistently deliver. I am confident you will be comforted and emboldened knowing we are on your side.
Over 25 years ago, Rick Zurz and I became law partners. We brought together our diverse experience and skills to help clients in all types of legal matters. Rick has over 33 years of experience practicing law and he is one of the most talented lawyers I have ever known. Like me, he stays closely involved with every case our firm handles.
Over the last 25 years we have added outstanding attorneys to our law firm, all with unique legal skills and experience that benefit our clients. This team works together to make sure our clients are protected and treated fairly.
We help clients throughout the state of Ohio from our offices in Akron, Canton, Cleveland and Columbus. Right now, we are representing clients located in 57 Ohio counties and 155 cities, towns and villages.
Our main law office is located on the top floor of this building. While this is our base of operations, we are constantly on the move serving clients in every corner of Ohio.
Our style of practicing law is to first listen to you so we can understand your case and answer all your questions. This is called a free and private consultation. It’s exactly what the name says – free. There is no cost and there is no obligation to hire our law firm. It’s a service we provide people almost every day and an opportunity for you to get to know us and how we can help you.
If you decide to hire us, we go to work for you immediately to develop a strategy and plan designed for you to win. Then we aggressively implement that plan designed just for you.
While we are working on your case, we keep you informed, up-to-date and engaged. It's your case and we are here to serve you.
Because of our experience and reputation we are able to fairly resolve most matters for our clients without going to a courtroom trial.
But when our client is not being properly protected and treated fairly, we need to go to court. If it comes to that, we will be fully prepared and we have the vast experience needed inside a courtroom.
We are focused on you and delivering you with results. That’s our mission and we take great pride in the work we do for people just like you.
While we represent clients in many different types of cases, these are the areas of law where we excel and offer the most experience.
We have the extensive experience and the vast resources to handle any size of case whether it’s for a large corporation or an average person like you and me. No case is too big or too small.
I invite you to get to know all the attorneys in our law firm by spending some time on their individual attorney profile pages here on our website.
I also invite you to get to know Mr. Randy Lepley. He’s our client relations manager at the firm. He makes himself available at all times to take your call or receive your message, not just during regular business hours. Randy will closely work with you and quickly put you in touch with the attorney at our firm who is best suited to assist you.
The attorney at our law firm with the most experience for your particular case will provide you with a free and private consultation either over the telephone or an in-person meeting.
If you can’t get to us, we are willing to come to you no matter where you are located in Ohio.
We are proud of the work we have done for others and honored to have their trust. We stand ready to provide you with the same exceptional level of service we have provided so many other clients throughout Ohio.
Contact us now and put our experienced, trusted and client-focused law firm to work for you.
Available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
