Attorney excellence
My company has used Matt and Arianne Slocum on several cases over the last several years and every time they have met and exceeded our expectations. They are 100% committed and attentive to every case they handle and make their clients feel like they are the only one and their top priority. I have dealt with other attorneys in the past and nobody comes close to meeting the level of expertise and professionalism provided by The Slocum Firm. All cases they handled for my company resulted in our desired outcome which was just icing on the cake. I would strongly recommend them for your legal needs, and after speaking with them for 5 minutes you will realize you are in good hands and made the right decision.

Responsive, knowledgable, compassionate
I consulted with Matt's office regarding a potential medical malpractice claim regarding my mother's death from a botched colonoscopy. Matt and Sarah were great in gathering my mother's records, keeping me informed, and discussing ideas and legal rationale with me about her care. Even though they ultimately decided not to pursue my mother's case, Matt made sure that I understood why they were not going to proceed and even referred me to another firm for a second opinion. I am a paralegal and the owner of a small law firm and I have very high expectations in terms of the treatment of clients. Matt and Sarah not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Matt and his firm.

Positive outcome
During a very stressful time for our family my father sustained an injury. The Slocum Law Firm guided us through a legal process that we were unfamiliar with. It was apparent from the start that Matt’s first concern was for my family’s well being and always worked in the best interest of my Dad. We can’t thank the entire staff enough for their professionalism and caring. Matt, along with Arianne and Sarah made a difficult experience less stressful with a very positive outcome.

Amazing people!
When I had my problem with my last job, I was hesitant with what to do about my situation. I found the Slocum firm and they walked me step by step through the whole process. They were amazing and down to earth people that always asked how me and my family was. I would recommend them to anyone!

Excellent Lawyer
Matt's knowledge as a lawyer is unsurpassed. I have used him for a multitude of work involving my business. Legal contracts can be difficult to understand. Matt breaks it down to a point that even I can follow. I will continue to use Matt for any legal work that I need now and in the future. Thanks for all your hard work!

Excellent lawyer
I have known Atty. Slocum for a few years and used his expertise on a few occasions for personal situations. He has always been extremely professional and very knowledgeable. He really knows the law. I am lucky to have used him as he helped me out a great deal.

The big buyout
I recently bought a business with several of my colleagues. I'm a blue collar business person so I needed help. I hired the Slocum Firm to execute the entire buyout. It was very complex because of multiple owners buying and multiple owners selling plus we were purchasing multiple businesses. This deal was really complex. They smoothed out all the wrinkles of the entire deal. Gave us great advice and protected our interest all the way through. Did an amazing job. We are now up and running and we couldn't be happier with the work of the Slocum Firm. Good people. Whether it's Litigation or Corporate Law, I'd recommend them to anyone.

Right To The Point. Forward and Friendly
I was referred to The Slocum Firm after asking around for a good malpractice lawyer. I made the phone call and I meeting was set up immediately. Walking into any lawyers office can be overwhelming especially when you don't know what to expect but I never got that feeling, I was greeted by his secretary and wife and we were all on a first name basis within the first five minutes of meeting them. throughout the whole process every phone call was returned I believe he called me from Puerto Rico because I left a message on his machine. He is very professional and doesnt throw any punches. He is very good at keeping you updated as your case is proceeding. I really liked that he would never make a final decision without asking me my opinion first. overall the whole process was a pleasure I was very well-informed with everything going on with my case and would recommend The firm to anyone looking for a hard working honest lawyer who's always got their clients best interest first. And Yes We Won,The Slocum Firm!!!!!!

Review for Matt Slocum
Matt was professional, experienced, and very personable. He kept me well informed of every step in the process and was readily available to answer my questions. He helped ease the legal tension and alleviate my anxieties about the case. I was confident that he had my best interest at heart and was well prepared to represent me. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt Slocum to my family and friends. He knows the law and cares about his clients.

Honest and Trustworthy
Matt and his team took on my case and worked very hard to help me with a tough battle. They were attentive and patient with me, when I needed advice and support. My wife and I appreciate Matt Slocum for doing such a good job and winning our case for us.

Highly recommended!
Would highly recommend Attorney Matt Slocum! After a car accident in March of 2011 and 2 previous lawyers and the run around for 3 years Attorney Slocum was recommended to me by a close friend. I sat and talked to Attorney Slocum at the end of summer 2014, My case was closed by the end of February 2015. He kept me up to date on everything going on with my case, if I had a question and had to call him, he promptly returned my calls, no waiting for days or sometimes weeks as I went through with the other lawyers. I felt comfortable talking with him and is a very trustworthy person. I wouldn't waste my time calling any other lawyer!
