About Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law

Quality, Professional Divorce & Family Law Services

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we are proud to be known as outstanding family law and divorce attorneys who combine legal skills with genuine compassion. No matter how complex or bleak your case may seem, when you choose us to be your legal representatives, we are certain your perspective will change. With our attentive and results-driven legal counsel in your corner, you will see that you can make it through any divorce or family law issue, which is one of many reasons why H Texas Magazine named us a “top divorce firm”.

Attorney Dennis Slate, Robert I. Kuehm and Attorney Lauren Durso are board-certified lawyers in Texas family law, earning the recognition from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. To become a specialist and earn board certification, an attorney must prove their extensive legal knowledge to the Board. Hours of study and legal education are required, as is a good standing with local legal bar associations. Lastly, board certification is only granted after the applicant attorney passes an intense examination. Only a slim percentage of lawyers in Texas hold board-certification status in any field of law.

We currently have two other attorneys within our law firm: Ben Raia and Shirley Mitchell, who have 30 years of combined legal experience and expertise. They each bring unique insights and backgrounds to our firm, allowing us to take an eclectic, advantageous approach to casework. Together, we support one another in order to best support and guide our clients.

Refining our law firm’s abilities even further is Founding Attorney Slate’s background with the United States Armed Forces. Part of his 25-year service includes acting as a U.S. Army Major in Reserves. He is able to bring the sense of duty and sheer discipline he learned in the Armed Forces to our law firm, acting as a clear and confident leader for us all. The dedication he has to excellence becomes a key advantage for our clients, whether we resolve their cases through mediation or litigation.

Our law firm combines the professionalism of a downtown corporate law firm with the genuine friendliness and care of a local Pearland firm.
