Paul Slager represents plaintiffs in complex, high-value cases, where people have suffered life-changing personal or financial injuries. In each of the past three years (2019-21), the Connecticut Super Lawyers* publication named Paul as one of the Top 10 Attorneys in Connecticut. He is the only trial attorney to have three different verdicts or settlements inducted as winners in the Connecticut Law Tribune’s Personal Injury Hall of Fame, and Best Lawyers* named Paul “Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year” three different times (in the field of Product Liability Litigation), including in 2021. In 2019-20, Paul was elected and proudly served as President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, a bar association that serves more than 1,300 member trial attorneys.
Paul’s cases stem from catastrophic events involving medical malpractice, sexual abuse, violent crimes, interstate trucking, defective consumer products and serious accidents. He accepts cases only after first carefully investigating the merits and only when he believes cases are required to balance important injustices, improve public safety or otherwise make a positive impact in the community.
Consistent with his interest in handling complex cases, Paul also has represented businesses and individuals on a contingency fee basis in significant and complex business disputes. He also represents people in whistleblower actions, where citizens become aware of illegal or unethical conduct that defrauds the government. In those cases, private citizens can recover significant rewards for confidentially informing the government of a fraud through court or agency filings. Paul’s experience as a tested trial lawyer with significant courtroom experience shapes his approach to these cases. He has pursued cases for clients under the federal False Claims Act (sometimes referred to as “qui tam” cases), the SEC whistleblower program (where a private citizen becomes aware of possible securities law violations) and the IRS Whistleblower Law (where a private citizen becomes aware of a significant tax fraud).
A few examples of Paul’s cases include:
