Mr. Slot handled a land contract default for me and did an excellent job. The very few things he had to research no doubt would have filled in the last dot. I would have no problem in having Mr. Slot handle any further legal problems that I may have arise.

A Trusted Advisor and Skilled Negotiator
Over the past several years Phillip has helped my company out in a few different capacities. He has been extremely helpful to us negotiating disputes and advising on contracts with both customers and suppliers. I have needed Phil's services to develop trial agreements for products and terms of service with our suppliers. I have occasionally needed his services again if they fail to deliver. Phil has helped us negotiate with customers with regards to limiting our liability and for extreme instances of non-payment. Phil has always offered sensible advice and has helped us to reach the best resolution in several difficult situations. He is professional, responsive, diligent, and honest. We are better off having used Phillip as our attorney and I would definitely recommend him.

Knowledgeable and exceptional advocate
Phillip has recently assisted my husband and me in a matter of hostage-taking of our household goods by a moving company, in their attempt to greatly inflate their fees. The matter had degenerated into a highly-contentious situation, which Phillip handled and resolved expeditiously and knowledgeably within 48 hours.

Great Advice
I had several complicated business and licensing issues to resolve, Phillip was able to provide a thorough analysis of the situation and develop a very comprehensive agreement that we were able to implement. Throughout our interactions Phillip offered helpful advice to clarify questions that ultimately lead to a resolution.

Exceptional Service & Positive Results
Phil did a wonderful job for my company and resolved a very uncomfortable lawsuit. We all hope to not need a litigation attorney, but Phil advised me very well and was able to get the lawsuit concluded with minimal expense to my firm. I would highly recommend him and advise those that do to follow his professional advice, as his interest is an unbiased resolution of the case in your best interest.
