  • W. Joseph Werner

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I had the opportunity to work with Aaron Slavin when we both first started practicing law and worked as a prosecutors for the State Attorney's Office, 6th Circuit, Florida. He and I were both fairly new to the profession at the time. I got an opportunity to work with Mr. Slavin on several difficult cases and can tell you it was a privilege. I can tell you that he left our office with a great reputation. I know of no prosecutor in the State Attorney's Office who does not hold Mr. Slavin in the highest regards. In my opinion, Mr.Slavin has the most important attributes of a good criminal lawyer--being well respected among his opponents, having a deep understanding of not only the law but of the issues of each case, and being honest.

    I have known Aaron since my first days at the State Attorney's Office. As a fellow Assistant State Attorney, I witnessed firsthand Aaron's terrific attributes as an attorney. Not only is Aaron exceedingly intelligent, but he strives to always outwork his opponent. These qualities came to light best when I witnessed or worked on a trial with Aaron. Aaron's abilities as a trial attorney in the State Attorney's Office were second to none. Now, as a criminal defense attorney, he will bring those same attributes and qualities to ensure the highest quality of legal representation for his clients.
