Handled my parents' estates through all phases of probate. In the case of my father's estate he handled everything while I as personal representative could execute my responsibilities from my office in California. I always felt well informed and fully understanding of the steps and processes we would go through. He secured bond, rounded up the assets of the estate which were confusing and poorly recorded as my father did everything himself after the death of my mother -- he had been a senior military official but was ill prepared for day to day management of his assets. Had Mr. Slicker not been so capable and dedicated, I likely would have had to spend considerable time thousands of miles from my business trying to sort things out and likely stumbling through the process. As it was personal and real property, stock and CDs were organized, sold or new ownership identified and distributed per the wishes of my father, inheritance taxes computed and paid with my having to be on site only two times in the eight month period. A real service to me personally and to our family. Were I a Florida resident William Slicker would be my lawyer.
Mr. Slicker accepted the child custody case between my wife, her sister, the named father of 2 of the 3 children involved, and a possible 2nd father for the 3rd child. My wife's sister was temporarily incarcerated with an incomplete restraining order posted for the biological father. The case had multiple children with multiple fathers and one mother related to my wife. Mr. Slicker thouroughly researched my wife's rights to be listed as the custodian of the children. Mr. Slicker aggressively pursued the process of determining if the father and other possible fathers would like to come forward to claim their parental responsibilities. Mr Slicker acurately detailed the progress being made, kept my wife informed of every step. Mr. Slicker completed the motion filings for temporary custody well within the alotted time frames allowed for each stage. Mr. Slicker presented realistic possible outcomes from the beginning of the process so there would be no surprises for my wife during this process. Mr. Slicker recently communicated to my wife well after the process had been completed to notify us that the father's attorney removed himself from representation when his client failed to meet the remaining stages of the mediation. As such Mr. Slicker recommended that we continue at the stage of mediation that had been obtained without any further pursuit of the remaining stages. Mr. Slicker's 30 + years of practice make him a well versed attorney for family law.
