  • Michael H Fayard II

    I have worked with Matt on a few projects representing plaintiff's in smoking related class actions. I have also seen Matt prosecute numerous hearings. Matt is skilled and articulate. He is confident, knowledgable, and is not intimidated or flustered when arguing before the court.

  • Anthony Gerald Ryan

    I have worked against Mr. Slack on numerous occasions when he was a prosecutor and always found him to be reasonable and fair. Now that he is on the other side, there is no doubt that he will use his knowledge as a former prosecutor to his client's best interest.
