James W. Slater

Attorney in Akron, OH
I was born in Waterbury, Connecticut on October 5, 1943. I attended college at the University of Connecticut, graduating with honors in 1966. From there, I decided to enroll in the Georgetown University Law Center and received my law degree in 1969. I have been practicing law for over 40 years and have handled thousands of cases, both big and small.

Like all the attorneys at Slater & Zurz LLP, I am focused on getting results for all my clients as quickly as possible. That means meticulously preparing your case and aggressively pursuing it. In most circumstances, I can get your case successfully resolved at mediation and avoid a lengthy trial. If your case does need to go to trial, I have a long and established track record of success.

The best way for me to explain how I may help you, is to allow my clients to tell you about their experience with me:

"I chose Jim Slater as my legal representative over 20 years ago at the suggestion of another attorney I had used in other legal matters. That was the best suggestion I've ever had, and by far the best choice I've ever made in my legal affairs.

Jim Slater represented me in a very crucial matter back in the mid 80's. Having been in a life threatening car accident, I was rewarded very handsomely, and still receive payments from that accident to this very day. Not only was I compensated financially, Jim showed me how to invest a large portion of the settlement. I will have tripled my investment over my life time. Thank you again and again Jim."- Michael J. Sales, Sr.

I practice law because I like to help people in all types of cases, big or small. I want you to call me so we can discuss your case. It will be my pleasure to speak with you and provide you with immediate feedback on how we can solve your legal issue.

My wife and I were on our 2nd anniversary trip and our daughter was at her grandparents home over the 4th of July weekend. We became extremely unsettled when we recieved a telephone call from my father stating that the neighbors dog had bitten our daughter in the face. We rushed home early to our daughter, who sustained facial injuries including stitches, puncture wounds and subsuquently emotional trauma and unnecessary fears from this heinous attack. My father contacted Slater and Zurz in rega
