Stuart Slotnick, shareholder in the firm's Litigation section and head of the New York City office, was quoted in ABA Journal article, "Novelist James Patterson tells the stranger-than-fiction story of criminal defense attorney Barry Slotnick."
Describing a basis for his father’s success, Slotnick’s son, Stuart Slotnick, a shareholder at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney and head of the firm’s New York City office, tells me: “He liked winning. He was never competitive in the ways you see people competitive in sports, but when it came to this, he wanted to win.”
This winning, the younger Slotnick says, created a misconception about his father: “I think people perceived my dad to be a ‘killer’ because he won so much. He was not a ‘killer’ in the way people thought. He wasn’t a yeller or threatener. He was a ‘killer’ because he was smart, worked hard, got the angle and knew what he needed to do to win. People met my father and were surprised to find him to be low-key and quiet.”
