I had consults with a few lawyers before choosing Shailey. I had another Attorney who was out of district recommend her. Shailey is very attentive, professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and responsive. Shailey and her legal assistant were always on top of my case and made sure to explain/answer any questions or concerns I needed address. The one thing that highlighted Shailey the most was her knowledge in family law. She's knows the law like the back of her hand. She is reasonable and straight forward with all situations. She doesn't sugar coat any information. She is prepared AHEAD of time. Not a day before. Shailey takes her job very seriously and stick by her clients in a point of law. I would recommend her over and over again for any family law matter. My case was child support and she accomplished everything I asked for. Just do a consult with her and you will see why she is a great fit for you.
Excellent Attorney! I hired Dennis Slate by the recommendation of a friend and I am so happy that I did! If you are looking for someone whom is extremely experienced in Family Law, then he is your guy. We are Grandparents whom were fighting for custody of our Grandchild after her Mother, our daughter passed away. It took two years of fighting, but we finally prevailed yesterday! There are no words to describe how glad we are that we hired his law firm. All of the people whom work with him are very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you to all of you who had any part in helping with our case. On a side note he is pretty expensive but worth every penny when you compare it against the life of a child!
I was awarded $2.1 million in damages from my ex, along with Primary Custody of my daughter. My ex now pays me child support, and was ordered to pay my legal fees. Slate Law filed a motion for enforcement on my current order and my ex was held in contempt. My case included False abuse claims, CPS involvement, Parental Alienation, Slander, Libel and the team at Slate Law was able to sort through it all. When we went to court, Dennis Slate knew the facts of my case better than I did. Trust me, I went through 5 different lawyers before I found Mr. Slate. I learned the hard way, but this Law Firm did everything they said they would do, and I was billed honestly, and fairly.
Don't be fooled by the practical style and location of the office. If you want to overpay for a "Big-City Do Nothing Lawyer" with a fancy office, you are in the wrong spot. If you want to walk into the court room and get the real results that you deserve, then make the drive to Deer Park and hire Slate Law!
My ex Fiancé' was keeping me from seeing my 14 month old daughter after our relationship ended, so I decided to consult Dennis Slate on my options. After going over the details of my case Dennis told me that he felt confident that he could get me a set visitation schedule of some kind first and foremost and that he would try to get more if the opportunity presented itself. Dennis is very particular about what he wants and needs as far as proof or evidence goes. Do yourself a favor and don't take this request from him lightly. He's got an awesome staff that helps every step along the way. They are very detailed as well and their communication is second to none. In my case, the mother of my child decided to lie several times on the stand, the judge believed her and sided with her the first time we went to court. I thought my case was over and that I would not be able to be in my daughter's life. Dennis pretty much told me to stop complaining and prove she was lying. Once I gave the evidence to Dennis, he went to work organizing it all and come up with a game plan for our next court date. When the day finally came, the magic of who Dennis Slate is came to life. He was relentless in his pursuit to prove her lies. He did not let up. The judge had no choice but to side in my favor. I went into this case hoping for some time with my daughter and possibly having overnight visitation rights. When Dennis was finished and the dust settled, I was awarded 50% visitation of my daughter. I now get her 7 days on and 7 days off. I also pay no child support. Let me say that again.... I pay ZERO child support. I also have exclusive rights to choose schooling and doctors for my daughter. I am a no nonsense kind of guy and Dennis Slate is the exact same. He will not blow smoke to try to get your money. He will be brutally honest with you. Do yourself a favor, trust Dennis Slate and his team to represent you in your time of need.
Hummm... Where to begin? So I needed a Divorce Attorney. I selected, Dannielle Simms, from the Law office of Dennis M. Slate's law firm. My initial phone conversation was with Dennis Slate, and he assured me that everyone in the office would work with me on my case... This happened. He and another attorney showed up to court at different times. The legal secretary was "johnny-on-the-spot" anytime I need quick answers or was dropping off or picking up documents. The paralegal, when Dannielle was not available, always knew the answers regarding my case.
Now, Dannielle Simms, wow... Just wow... From our very first meeting she was able to take an emotional subject (my divorce), give comfort, listen, and clearly lay out what I could expect from having her, Dannielle, representing me. There were many times during the court appearances that she correctly explained the temperament of the judge and how the judge would rule. She kept me calm and let me know each step of the process.
When I had my "red lines" (there were certain things I was not willing to give up) Dannielle was able to put it into legal language that was then granted by the court or the apposing counsel got my ex-wife to agree. I could not have been able to do this without Dannielle's legal expertise.
When needed, Dannielle was aggressive in protecting my interest. There was never a time when I felt she was not doing everything legally possible on my behalf.
I have even recommend Danielle's services to other friends that need good legal council.
I would never wish that anyone would need Ms. Simms' legal services, but if anyone does, they would not be wrong in choosing a well qualified and competent attorney that is Dannielle Simms.
I hired Dennis Slate because my wife had such success with him in her custody case last year against her ex-husband. I had been informally exercising a half-time schedule with my daughters for almost a full year when their mom decided to stop – without reason or warning – and refused to let me see them any more than our old custody order allowed. The kids went from seeing me half the time to only one night during the week and 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekends. My entire family was devastated. With the help of Dennis and his team I was able to officially get back half-time as well as every other request we made.
The results my family and I received from working with Dennis Slate and Shailey Gupta-Brieztke were better than I thought possible. If I am forced to litigate again, I will absolutely be using Dennis Slate and his team. They are amazing!
Dennis is very knowledgeable and he know how to handle the situation, im so glad I chose him as my attorney to help me. Ms DANNIELLE SIMMS did a wonderful job in keeping me updated and also in court. their help got me my kids and my rights back
I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Slate to anyone.
I came to Mr. Dennis Slate with a challenge that seemed impossible. Mr. Slate asked several questions and educated me on the law. After our conversation Mr. Slate and Ms. Dannielle Simms went into action. It was a relief to be able to place my situation in capable hands. Ms. Simms was always available to answer my questions and provide updates on my case. Her caring and reassurances were greatly appreciated in my times of concern. At trial time I sat back and let Mr. Slate work the law. It was a nothing less than amazing to watch Mr. Slate in action. To say it went well is an understatement. Mr. Slate used his knowledge of the law to expose the truth to the court. I walked out of the courthouse with a huge smile on my face.
I would also like to acknowledge the helpfulness of Ms. Dalia Benitez. Ms. Benitez was always there to answer questions, receive documents, and forward messages.

Mr. Slate is very professional aND a heavyweight in the courtroom! He took on my case with only 5 days until we had to go to court and he represented himself as if he knew me for years. I felt like he always had my family's best interest. I would recommend him to everyone.

Mr. Slate is an excellent attorney. I hired him for my termination/adoption case. It was our wish for my sons stepdad to be able to adopt him and Mr. Slate made it come true. No matter what came up, he kept pushing and figuring things out. Mr. Slate gets things done!!!!! I would certainly use him again and would recommend him to anybody.
