Direct communication with your attorney

You will have access to the same attorney from the day you walk in until your case is closed.

"We take personal stock in your case.
You are not a number."


Let us be your shield when you are hurt.

Immediately after an injury, insurance corporations will push you into recorded statements, immediate decisions, and low-ball settlement offers that only benefit them. When you hire the Wichita lawyers at Slape & Howard, we get to work protecting your interests. Let us handle the insurance corporations while you focus on getting your life back.

Social Security Disability

No one wants to admit that they are unable to continue to work, but for some that is their reality. Valid claims are denied by social security, and it can be difficult to get any meaningful response from them. Let us help.

Estate Planning

Death or incapacitation is a frightening proposition for anyone, but it can be more frightening if your wishes and assets are not seen to through a well-drafted document such as a will or living trust.

There’s nothing dishonest in seeking what you deserve.

Midwestern values teach us to bear our burdens with dignity, and we do. But pride and self-reliance blind us from three truths:

  • Insurance corporations want to make money, not spend it.
  • Employers want to make money, not spend it.
  • People who trust in either are easy targets for being cheated.

See how we’ve made a difference for Kansans who understood they would not receive fair compensation for their suffering by going it alone.

      Wichita, KS Personal Injury Attorneys

      We are dedicated to securing compensation to account for losses you incur if you have suffered from a car crash, on-the-job accident, or unfair denial of disability benefits. 

      It’s imperative you focus on recovery without the distraction of managing this burden on your own. 

      You cannot depend on employers or big insurance corporations to offer reasonable settlements. They rely on an accident victim’s willingness to never question them.

      When you come to Slape & Howard for help, you’re not asking for more than you deserve.

      Our attorneys provide legal strategies that don’t ask for more than those accountable should pay, but they demand exactly the amount your suffering has earned.

      We will not let wrongdoers, negligent corporations, and bloated government entities get away with denying your true value. Kansas families and workers are worth more than that. Contact the Law Offices of Slape & Howard and start your recovery.
