I came to Adam in a time of my life that my health had been compromised.. I interviewed other lawyers until i came to land with him. Not only did he have the patience to bare with me, but his Knowledge in reference to my case was impressive and comforting. I spent hours with Adam the first day and knew that i would never receive the comfort zone I had with him anywhere else. I absolutely adore Adam as a Lawyer and as a person and will never trust anyone to have the faith of my life in there hands other then him. Adam, will listen to your every word and reach outside the rhealm of legalities and give empathy with no limits. He truly is God sent.

I was referred to Adam Slater for legal counsel after obtaining an injury. Adam is intelligent and very well versed in his field. He knew all of the answers to my questions and was able to set my mind at ease. I was really impressed with how responsive he was with everything that I needed help with. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family members. He is kind, caring, and professional. He really respected my concerns and feelings about my case and was able to help me in the best way possible around a sensitive issue regarding the case. Even after my case had ended, I was getting letters from a company (I can’t remember what it was now, it’s been a while) asking me for money, and Adam helped me to deal with that as well. it was so nice to know that even though the case had ended Adam was still so supportive, helpful, and concerned.
