Erica is not only knowledgeable, but she cares about her clients and it shows. I've used her in cases involving both of my daughters and I can't imagine having anyone else represent them.
Erika Slater completed a marital separation agreement for me at the end of 2014. She is a consummate professional and a human with a kind heart. Her personal and professional advice to me was always spot on the money. She worked hard to get it done in timely fashion and was very reasonable with her billing. I would recommend her to anybody needing a great attorney.
Many thanks to Erika
Erika was a trusted adviser. She was extremely effective at guiding me through a difficult process where making smart family-related decisions was critical. Her response time is top notch! I always felt like I was in good hands.
Erika was my divorce attorney for 2 years and she helped me tremendously. My divorce was quite the headache. We were always having to change terms in my agreements, have meetings, and file papers. I asked an endless amount of questions and I'm pretty sure I contacted her at least 5 times a week. She never seemed to mind and was always there for me when I needed her. She became a friend, not just my attorney. She even gave me some tough love when she thought I wasn't thinking of my best interests. She's one of the best. And though I hope I'll never need another divorce attorney again, I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
It was a great pleasure working with Erika Slater, who handled my divorce with skill and professionalism. Because of a number of personal issues, I had to hire her sight unseen. Paramount in my decision to retain her were the excellent AVVO reviews from her clients. What finalized it for me was her willingness to explain to my satisfaction the general costs, timeline, general procedures, and several 'what ifs' for my specific situation over the phone BEFORE I became her client. We handled EVERYTHING (initial interview, payments, paperwork, my questions, her status reports) via email or phone. We didn't met until the day of my hearing but I felt totally prepared and thanks to her, I was. When my ex tried to lob a last minute grenade, she hurled it back with deftness and precision. Ah . . . it was a beautiful moment for me. I have already highly recommended Ms Slater to several friends and I'm very happy to submit this most favorable review on her behalf.
Erika was an absolute pleasure to work with! She makes everything very simple and painless. Unlike many other attorneys who look to "over lawyer" certain points in order to rack up billable hours, however Erika was always focused and to the point, never belaboring over small issues or wasting time needlessly. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and I highly recommend her for any family law needs.
I meant Ms. Slater about 6 months or less ago. She called me on her vacation the first time I had ever spoken to her. As soon as she return I saw her. She explained what I needed to do. She was very professional also very caring and it's about her job. Very profesional something that's hard to get these days, sadly to say. I was very happy also pleased with Ms. Slater. My case was done faster than I even expected. Every process she made sure I was aware of and I had no problems with anything. If I had need a Attorney again she will be the first I call.
When I hired Erika Daneman Slater, I was in complete distress and felt as if the world was crashing down on me as I was in need of a strong, powerful, dominate attorney. When I found Mrs. Slater I knew that I as well as my children were in good hands. Through my emotional roller coaster, she showed her utmost strength, took to my case with grace and pushed me through one of the most trying times in my life. She is extremely intelligent, knows her material and yet shows nothing but compassion and sympathy for you as a human being. There was never a time that she did not respond to my emails, phone calls, etc in an untimely fashion even if it was something small. There was no such thing as a stupid question or concern. She handles herself professionally and tries to see the good in every scenario that you throw her way. Everything that I asked for was handled professionally and willingly even if she felt I was in the wrong. I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience then what she gave to me and if I ever need anything in the future, hands down she will be the one that I seek to do business with. she made me feel great about myself in my time of need and for that, I will always be appreciative. Believe me when I say that she will fight for you in every way possible and it would be foolish to not contact her in your time of need in a child custody matter.
Erika handled my seperation/divorce and was very responsive and answered all questions that I had. She fought hard for me and I ended up walking out with a lot more than I could have. When my ex-wife's lawyer was not answering any phone calls, emails, or letters; she stayed on top of things and was very persistent since I was under a time constraint. I would reccommend Erika to anyone... I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
My family came to Erika in a very serious state of desperation concerning the custody of my daughter. From the very first consultation, Erika spent an extensive amount of time going over the facts and details of the case.She went above and beyond doing whatever she could to yield my family a favorable result. Most importantly, she truly cared. She cared about what was in my daughterâ€™s best interest. She was fair, dedicated and honest. She always showed empathy and compassion, but she never sugar-coated our chances even when at times it seemed things may not go in our favor, and she never sugar-coated the law. My family and I are eternally grateful to Erika, and would recommend her without hesitation.
