    After I suffered a serious accident, a well known corporate attorney recommended Slate Stern, a skilled commercial and personal injury attorney. Throughout my entire process, Slate was dedicated and professional, Although I live out of state, he kept me constantly informed and was quick to respond to any questions and concerns. The large insurance company that we faced learned early that Slate was quick and efficient acting against all misrepresentation and evasive maneuvers. He performed extensive research, secured experts to validate my condition and circumstances, and compiled impressive evidence which ultimately led to a successful conclusion. I'm grateful to my friend for suggesting Slate Stern as my attorney. I too highly recommend him. Read less
