LA Law with a NY Edge

Slade Law practices an assertive, common sense approach to conflict
prevention and resolution. We work hard for cost-effective and
proactive dispute resolution using skills honed not only in
the courtroom, but also in the boardroom.


The Firm

Slade Law is an LA area law firm with East Coast sensibility

Firm principal Larry Slade is a New York City native, successful entrepreneur, and licensed attorney with over 25 years experience building and protecting businesses. Growing up in Manhattan, Slade learned lessons about the real world – especially how to stay out of trouble. This street-savvy skill is one that Slade has perfected over the years in his dealings both in the boardroom, and the courtroom.

Slade’s business career started in Manhattan where he built his own marketing consulting firm while attending law school at night. His law career started in Miami, Florida as a trial lawyer, serving as Assistant State Attorney in the prestigious Dade County State Attorney’s Office. When Slade moved West, he took on several entrepreneurial ventures, coming full circle in 2001 when he opened his own boutique law firm, Slade Law.
