Silver Golub & Teitell Partner Paul A. Slager has been included in Super Lawyers' "Top 10: 2022 Connecticut Super Lawyers" list. Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Connecticut via a patented multiphase selection process involving peer nomination, independent research and peer evaluation. The Connecticut lawyers who receive the highest point totals during this selection process are further recognized in Connecticut Super Lawyers Top Lists. All of Super Lawyers' "Top lists" can be accessed here.
Paul represents plaintiffs in complex, high-value cases, where people have suffered life-changing injuries. He is a Past President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, a bar association serving more than 1,300 member Connecticut trial attorneys. Connecticut Super Lawyers listed Paul as one of the Top 10 Attorneys in Connecticut in each of the last three years. He is the only 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 Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year three different times (Stamford, Product Liability Litigation).
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).
