    • I do not recommend Slade Lawson.
    • I hired Slade 1-3 years ago.
    • Slade handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Slade impressed me with his eagerness to visit in jail for initial consultation free of charge. However that may be a result of his firm being a small 1 man firm. Slade's online presence and alcolades makes his firm appear larger than it is. Because he is a solo practitioner, he was hounding to the point of pestering for payment of fees. Unfortunately he was not as forthcoming or timely with information. Slade did a poor job of communicating at each stage of the judicial process. I would not recommend him.

    Slade Lawson is a great lawyer who helped get off of falsely accused charges. I lived out of state and he did a great job keeping me informed on what was going on and kept me out of state until the final court date.

    I recently found myself in the position of having to retain an attorney to represent my college-aged son who was facing a criminal misdemeanor charge. Slade came highly recommended by a friend who practices civil law in the Phoenix area. I will be forever grateful for the recommendation. Slade kept us informed every step of the way and the case proceeded exactly as he indicated it would. Despite Slade's perseverance in seeking an early favorable resolution, the matter proceeded to trial. As a direct result of Slade's experience, his exceptional knowledge of the law and his sheer determination in seeking justice for my son, the matter was dismissed.
    As a parent faced with such a daunting situation, Slade's professionalism, knowledge and calm disposition made a very difficult situation tolerable. He made it clear from the outset that he had my son's best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Slade Lawson to anyone seeking an experienced criminal attorney who cares about his clients and will do what it takes to get the best result possible.

    • I recommend Slade Lawson.
    • I hired Slade 1-3 years ago.
    • Slade handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was involved in an altercation and was ordered to appear in court. After getting nowhere talking to the prosecuting attorney Slade was recommended by a family friend. Slade kept me up-to-date on everything and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful on matters concerning my case. The case went exactly the way we had anticipated, with NO surprises!!! I would recommend Slade to anyone. A knowledgeable attorney that has experience and is realistic with what he can offer. This is the reason for my 5 star rating.

    • I recommend Slade Lawson.
    • I hired Slade 1-3 years ago.
    • Slade handled my Civil Rights matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    H e was hired by the court, I guess. But I wrote him my version of the case and I believe he took it seriously and used it to get a well-deserved acquittal for my son.

    Mr. Lawson helped me through a very difficult time. I was charged with a crime and facing serious consequences. Mr. Lawson took my case and immediately went to work. He kept me informed throughout every step of the case. He was always available to answer my questions (and I had a lot of them).

    The result Mr. Lawson was able to achieve for me on my case was unbelievable, much better than I thought I could ever hope for. I can't say enough good things about him. He is the ultimate professional and a VERY highly skilled lawyer.

    I would recommend Mr. Lawson to anyone. It is obvious that he cares a great deal about his clients. He took the time to make sure that I understood what was going on in my case and he listened to what I wanted.

    I had never been through the court system before, so I was terrified. Mr. Lawson was truly a blessing to me.
