Client Testimonials

“My daughter was bitten multiple times by a vicious dog. Attorney Jim Slater personally would call to check on my daughter. He treated us like family. The other staff Brenda and Andy were prompt with answering any questions I had. They kept me informed. Together they made the defendant pay for being negligent. If you want an attorney who cares and who will give you guidance throughout the whole process: choose SLATER & ZURZ.”

– Tiffany

“The firm represented our daughter in a dog bite case that dated back to 2004. Jim Slater was extremely knowable and courteous. He communicated with us every step of the way, even when there was nothing to communicate. Jim would periodically check in and made sure all of our questions were addressed. We feel that we had the best representation we could have asked for and our daughter received a favorable settlement that was far greater than what we could have received on our own. We would definitely consider using Slater and Zurz in the future if the need arose!”
