I first met Mr. Slater on 11/01/2012. I had many questions concerning Ruth's will and Estate.
Mr. Slater reviewed the material and the will. The process of verifying the will was going to take a little research as it was over 55 years old and all the named executors had past away.
He and some associates had located a person who could verify one of the signatures on the will.
The two beneficiaries named in the will had asked if I could be executor since I had been handling her affairs through Durable Power of Attorney for a few years and was familiar with the estate.
After presenting to the court all the information that was found and verified, I was appointed executor.
Due to the size of the estate and possible tax implications, with the advise of Mr. Slater, I hired a tax consulting firm.
With the advice from Mr. Slater and the tax firm. I was able to liquidate the assets, pay all taxes and disperse the money and misc. assets in a logical and systematic way.
This whole process took approx. 6 mo.
Throughout the entire time Mr. Slater was easily accessible for my many questions and concerns. He provided many forms to help me keep everything organized and presentable to the courts.
I very much appreciate all the effort he went through to ensure a smooth finish to this estate and made the whole process less stressful on me.
Thank You Gary.

Mr. Slater and his staff were very helpful and supportive during my divorce and child support issues. Mr. Slater took the time to explain the issues and reasons for all the in's and out's of my divorce so that I could understand and make informed decisions. Mr. Slater was very prepared going to court and the judge even acknowledged the fact. Mr. Slater made sure that the divorce was fair, that my rights were always represented and that my children's well being was always the highest priority. I have recommended Mr. Slater to several friends throughout the years and I will continue to do so.

I have had to use Mr Slater twice and would continue to use him, he was very profesisonal and extreamly supportive. His staff was also very helpful and knowledgeable and always available to help.
I believe you will not find a better office to do business with. I have recommended him to several friends who also feel he was incredible.
I can't say enough for all the help and support he gave me durring and extreamly difficult divorce, and again when I went back to court for a parenting plan revision. He is the best! :-)

I have needed Gary's help with a complicated divorce, child support, and visitation issues over a span of many years. His calm, professional demeanor and expertise helped me through a traumatic time. My first interaction with him involved collecting money owed to me by my ex-husband. He only charged me a small fraction of the fee he had originally quoted me, saying, "It was easy to collect. I wouldn't feel right charging you the full amount." He refunded my fee! Wow! Gary is truly a remarkable and talented attorney. Even his staff adores him. Finding Gary was one of the best decisions I have ever made!

Mr. Slater has helped us on a couple of occasions on issues involving family law. Gary was very understanding and our results from his service have always been exceptional. He has definitely gone above and beyond what I would have expected from a lawyer. His staff is also efficient and effective in handling delicate situations and work to minimize the stress on their clients. I would recommend him without reservation.

He didn't have any compassion, he was never available, he didn't explain, never had time, he would say something and next visit changed it, he was short to rude, he would not listen to me, he made fun of me after a hard marriage of 42 yrs, it was a bad experience all together. He charged Lot foe doing almost nothing in my case. Always Always in a hurry. Just a Real Bad experience.

Gary worked with me and my wife for over a year and a half on our very difficult and emotional custody battle to obtain legal adoption of our two sons from my wife's prior marriage to a hostle and physically abusive ex-husband. Gary was successful in obtaining the agreement for me to legally adopt our sons which was and is the greatest joy in me and my wife's life! Gary was very professional, compassionate and tenacious in our case. His knowledge of the law, along with his very effective strategic application of law is what helped to win this case for us. I HIGHLY recommend Gary for divorce and related issues surrounding divorce, custody and adoption, he is a truely outstanding Attorney and very ethical in all areas.

Today Mr. Gary Slater is moving his office several blocks away but yet squeezed me into his busy schedule. I have a very complicated divorce that has been mis-handled and is very behind schedule. He spent hours listening to me and going over my case. Although, because of his move and other case load, he is unable to represent me he did not let me leave without 5 attorney's to call and a forensic divorce financial consultant. He was honest, forth-right and very knowledgable of what I need to do. I have an appointment with one of his referals tomorrow and I am so grateful for his help. He did this all without charge to me and it has changed my view of the integrity of divorce lawyers! Thank you Mr. Slater!
