Have used him on several occassions
Bobby Slotkin has helped me on a number of business items. I am always impressed with his knowledge, understanding of the issues, and abilities to help me out. When he needs to he is also not hesitant to send you to another attorney if it is not in his sweet spot. I would definitely use him again.

Excellent attorney
We found ourselves in an unbelievable situation where a neighbor attempted to take advantage of a surveyor's mistake to extract an outrageous sum of money from us. It took over two years to resolve the dispute, but Mr Slotkin was patient, professional and diligent in bringing this nightmare to an acceptable conclusion.

Excellent business lawyer and advisor
Bobby has been with us since the beginning with setting up the LLC, giving us great referrals to CPAs, Insurance agents, etc. He's professionally advised us and guided us for over 10 years through various issues and has always provided wise counsel on a timely basis. Bobby is very responsive to every call, email or text. I feel very confident recommending Slotkin & Caiola.

An outstanding attorney
I retained Mr. Slotkin's colleague Anne P. Caiola for what could have been a nasty lawsuit in Federal Court. However, thanks to the expertise of Ms. Caiola and the considerable advice and counsel contributed by Mr. Slotkin, the matter was swiftly settled out of court and at far less expense than I anticipated. A couple of attorneys I have met socially let me know that anyone represented by Bobby Slotkin is "in excellent hands." I could not have said it better.
