Family Court Attorney David Slepkow Reviews and Ratings

  • 5 star review- Honest, humble attorney with skill and expertise-Posted by anonymous March 26, 2019- David was the second attorney I hired. I was glad I made the change. While my first attorney was pressuring me to accept a bad deal, David always listened to my concerns and gave me clear legal advice leaving me in charge of my decisions. I appreciated this about him the most. In the end, he got me much more time with my daughter and a much bigger financial settlement. If you are seeking an honest, humble attorney with skill and expertise, David is your man. A rare find these days!

  •  8/8/18- “David is an amazing attorney that knows the law. We came to him originally to consult with him in 2011 from out of state to talk to him about custody of my husband’s son who lived in RI. Dealing with an out-of-state custody situation can be costly and complicated. He was upfront and honest and let us know his best opinion and at that time it was to wait until he was “of age” to decide. Fast forward 6 years… The situation with my step-son had a lot of different variables, a lot of different things that a typical custody case. We were not going up against the mother; unfortunately she had passed away and the great-aunt had guardianship. David was strategic and skillful throughout the whole process. With a situation such as ours, it could have been long and drawn out. Everything moved quickly and from start to finish. ( approx 8 months) We now have custody and my step-son now lives with us out of state. Thank you David!”
  • “7/24/18- David is an amazing lawyer. He is honestly brilliant. Ive had many conversations with him regarding my high conflict custody battle and I’m always incredibly impressed by how he assesses each situation. I respect him very much for always being honest with me, even if what he’s saying is not what I was hoping to hear. He’s very knowledgeable and has helped me to protect my child for years now. He has never let us down and I truly believe that he cares about my case and the outcome. He’s committed and experienced and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer. I had several consultations with several lawyers before choosing David, and I’ve never regretted choosing him once.”

  • Best Lawyer in Rhode Island!

    Posted by Sarah

     I have been through several lawyers in my custody battle. None of them handled the case like David. David spent countless hours fighting for not 1 but 2 of my children. He was very invested in our case and he really cared about the outcome of our case and my children. He was able to accurately depict what was going on with my childrens father…

    “David Slepkow is the best!”

    • Paula H.

       I never take the time to write reviews because I am not easy to please I admit. David Slepkow is the best! I feel connected to him because he held my hand through my entire divorce which wasn’t pretty. I interviewed 2 attorneys before him and felt like a number. Thank you David for not only winning my case but for allowing me to cry on your shoulder. I hope that women mainly see this review because any woman I know for a fact will be grateful for you ! Also your prices we’re the most reasonable.

    • I recommend David Slepkow.
    • I used David 1-6 months ago.
    • David handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    We have had a 5 year relationship with David Slepkow as our family lawyer. He helped us with a divorce and a custody battle. The mediation he did during the divorce made a amiable agreement possible. The custody issue was more involved and we felt confident the whole time that we would end up with the result we were hoping for. Most of the time the Father gets the short end of the stick. But with David we won full custody and placement. Something that rarely happens. We were also very impressed with the respect he receives from peers at the court and how well all the other attorneys and judges know him. When we go to court with him, we feel he is at ease and at home in the Rhode Island family court. He is very efficient and always returns calls and never seemed to rush through things that were important to us. When we get the bill, it seems reasonable and very accurate. We would highly recommend anyone in Rhode Island to use David Slepkow as an attorney.

      I can easily recommend David. He is smart, diligent and compassionate. David listened and always acted in my best interest. He kept me informed of the legal process and explained the risks and rewards of my decisions. Whenever I needed to reach him he was always timely in getting back to me and he used every tool to do so. I also greatly appreciated the fact that David did not hesitate to seek other outside opinion when necessary. We reached a settlement that he negotiated well on my behalf. I would contact David should I ever need a lawyer again in any of his specialty areas.

      • I used David 1-3 years ago.
      • David handled my Criminal Defense matter.

      David recently represented me in an uphill struggle to vacate a plea, then fight it. He was able to vacate the plea (which itself was an enormous accomplishment ) and then have the case dismissed. David is very knowledgeable, and clearly has done significant research in his field. What was also especially impressive to me was his excellent client service. He never went more than 24 hours to respond to messages, works on weekends, uses emails, and he clearly communicates procedures and potential scenarios. He was always on time, and sincerely wanted to provide tough defense. Hiring David is money well spent, and I wouldn’t think twice about it.

      • I used David 1-3 years ago.
      • David handled my Family matter.
      • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

      David went above and beyond for my case. I had a difficult legal issue involving my children that spanned two jurisdictions with little case law. I had been frustrated for many years with travel out of state when my children lived here in Rhode Island with me. David spent a lot of time with me discussing the case, making sure I understood the legal issues and what we needed to do to get a result that benefited my children. He did an excellent job of responding to complex legal issues in open court. He was extremely responsive to me and always returned calls and emails very promptly. I also felt as though he cared about doing what was best for my children. I highly recommend him.
