About me

I designed my practice to meet the needs of a person when he or she most needs an attorney: bankruptcy, family law (divorce and paternity), wills, estates, real estate and business law.

Furthermore, I take pride in providing legal counsel for the difficult circumstances we must sometimes face.  From my experience as a law clerk, insurance defense associate, assistant city attorney and an independent general civil practitioner; I can offer a world of wisdom and compassion to those who need it most.

At my law firm, I do not let language barriers prevent me from serving the public.  I have translators for Vietnamese, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian to better serve today's diverse communities.


Languages spoken: English, Vietnamese, Russian, Spanish

    I have known Bill Slicker since I became a lawyer in 1995 and I have called him with questions and/or referred client to him for estate planning matters and he is always available with a smile and a friendly disposition; he is always happy to help or answer a question. I would trust Bill to handle my own friends or family's estate planning matters. I Highly Recommend Mr. Slicker.
