Paul Slager represents plaintiffs in complex, high-value cases where people have suffered life-changing personal or financial injuries. In each of the past four years (2019-22), the Connecticut Super Lawyers* publication listed 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* has named Paul “Lawyer of the Year” four separate times (in the fields of plaintiffs’ Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions and Product Liability Litigation). Paul also formerly served as President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, a bar association that serves more than 1,300 member trial attorneys.
The cases Paul pursues for individual plaintiffs stem from catastrophic events, including medical malpractice, sexual abuse, violent crimes, interstate trucking crashes, defective consumer products, fires and explosions and other serious events. He also represents plaintiffs in class actions, where negligent or nefarious conduct causes people serious personal injuries or financial harm. Paul’s experience as a tested trial lawyer with significant courtroom experience shapes his approach to these cases.
Consistent with his interest in handling complex cases, Paul also has pursued cases for businesses and individuals on a contingency fee basis in situations involving significant financial disputes. He also has represented claimants 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.
Before he accepts any case, Paul first thoroughly investigates the merits. He will take cases only after his investigation makes it clear that a case is required to balance important injustices, improve public safety or otherwise make a positive impact in the community.
A few examples of Paul’s cases include:
