-The Team at Slonim Law
Lets Talk about Slonim Law!
According to the dictionary, “trust” is defined as, a “firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.” It goes on to say, “relations have to be built on trust.” At Slonim Law, we are believers that trust is the key to any relationships, whether they are between two oar more people, or between people and organizations.
Recently, David Slonim, in an interview, talked about his firm’s values. “Here at Slonim Law, we recognize that how we interact with our clients is just as important as what we do for our clients. Our firm’s values guide the way we interact with our clients, regardless of why they have come to us for help. Our values are RESPECT, EMPATHY, TRUST, EXCELLENCE, and CURIOUS.”
“In our team meetings, we talk about how we can better demonstrate these values when we interact with our clients. It is important for our entire team to always:
· Be RESPECTFUL of each other, our clients, and our colleagues. It doesn’t make a difference who people are, or where they are from. Our clients come to us because they need one of our services, and they expect and deserve to be treated with respect.
· Be EMPATHETIC to those around us and our clients. Many of our clients come to us whilst experiencing grief or what might seem to be insurmountable problems. We need to be conscious that it is important for us to listen and to put ourselves in our client’s positions so that we better understand what they are going through.
· Always seek to build, earn, and maintain a meaningful TRUST relationship with others. We know that to be trusted by our clients, we need to demonstrate that we are trustworthy. By demonstrating to our clients that we are confidential legal advisors; by demonstrating that we genuinely are concerned about them and their needs, we are worth trusting.
· Consistently deliver EXCELLENCE in all that we do for our clients. Slonim Law isn’t the largest law firm in Florida, but being big isn’t what is important.
We know the law. We know the best way to resolve the reason you needed a law firm, and we work diligently to bring the highest level of legal expertise and integrity to address our client’s legal challenges.
· Be CURIOUS to find out what are clients are going through so that we can better meet their needs.”
David went on to say, “Here at Slonim Law, we know that what a law firm does and where it is going are important to its clients, but we also know that how we do what we do is key in ensuring that our clients needs, hopes, and issues, are dealt with in a professional, empathetic, and appropriate way. Our firm’s values guide us in do that, every day of the year.”

What is the Action Step Client Portal?
One of the unique services that Slonim Law provides to clients is the Actionstep secure client portal. Actionstep is the case management software utilized by the firm. The client portal allows the staff of Slonim Law to securely share documents with clients related to their matter through a login portal. Clients can upload documents without file size restrictions and download documents. There is also a portal chat tool for clients and staff to exchange messages and it keeps an audit trail of all activity.
What does it do?
The client portal provides clients with a secure portal to collaborate on documents, see matter updates and exchange messages with your paralegal or attorney without the need for a long email chain. The client portal gives clients access to specific information and documents directly within their matter. Clients are automatically alerted by email when a new document or message is added to their portal. Access to the client portal is designated by the staff of Slonim Law.
How to Use the Client Portal:
1.   Provide your email address to our office along with your initial consultation paperwork.
2.   You will receive an email from Actionstep inviting you to create a login portal.
3.   Once you are logged into the client portal, you can upload and edit documents, download documents and exchange messages securely with the firm through the portal chat.
Hope this helps explain our awesome portal!
Insight from Alexis
Clients are constantly on the search for an attorney that can help with their current state of perplexity. There are times that clients will call and not exactly know what they need in particular. These questions can range from digital assets all the way to Medicaid planning. At Slonim law we are able to understand and direct you to the right path.
When contacting us you see how dedicated we are to our services. We have three locations that you can pick from: Clearwater, Melbourne, and Kissimmee.
Not only can you contact the office, we have a very interactive website with more information as well. We have documents that you can download and newsletters to get to know the firm a little better. Not every law firm will dedicate time into their website for a personal touch but we definitely will. With that being said, we are constantly updating and advancing out technology for the purpose of our clients. We have a very secure system to save important documents that will be used in your case matter (see Katie’s article on the Client Portal above!).
We like to remind everyone to have trust in us because
we care about the service we provide.
Once you have the time to contact the firm you will find out soon enough that you made the right choice.
