At the law firm of Slater & Norris, we understand the challenges faced by injury victims and their families.

Many firms try to be a jack of all trades; unfortunately, this can result in being a master of none.

At Slater & Norris, our attorneys have found that by dedicating our practice exclusively to assisting individuals who are injured by the negligence of another, we are better able to provide each and every client with the focused and knowledgeable representation they need and deserve.  As we seek the full compensation you are entitled to for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages, we will handle your case with the personal care you deserve.

We believe that treating each client on an individualized basis is essential in these cases. We believe that such personalized service, which includes regular contact through meetings and telephone conferences, not only serves to provide the best possible outcome for our clients, but also serves to ease their mind when dealing with the many stressful issues that often arise when a serious injury or death occurs.
