Marshall Slayton’s legal career spans over two decades in Central Virginia. He began his career in 1994 as a general practitioner at a small Charlottesville firm, where he focused on criminal law and litigation.
After joining Forbes Reback in establishing the law firm of Reback & Slayton, the duo joined Ed Bain to form Boyle, Bain, Reback and Slayton, which later became Boyle, Bain, Reback, Slayton & Kelsey.
In his last eight years as managing partner of Boyle, Bain, he focused his practice almost exclusively on bankruptcy law. When Boyle, Bain partners amicably parted ways in December 2015, Mr. Slayton established Slayton Law, PLC to continue to provide highly individualized legal services to people who are dealing with debt and considering bankruptcy.
