Slotnick is well-known for defending several army soldiers against the Army's stop-loss policy. In 2004, Slotnick successfully defended Jay Ferriola, a retired Army Captain who was ordered to redeploy to Iraq after completing eight years of service, under the grounds that the Army violated his due process rights.[4][5] The case broke legal ground as the first to challenge the Army's stop-loss policy, which had affected tens of thousands of soldiers since the start of the Iraq War.[6] Slotnick went on to successfully try four more similar cases.[7]

In December 2006, he helped American Apparel navigate a $250 million acquisition deal with Endevour Acquisition Corp.[8] He later represented American Apparel when they were sued by Woody Allen for using his image without permission.[9][10] Due to the high-profile nature of the case, Slotnick was quoted in most major publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Independent, The Los Angeles Times and The Guardian.[11][12][13][14][15] The suit was settled before trial by American Apparel paying Allen $5 million.[12]

Slotnick represented Donald Schupak of Renaissance Art Investors in their case against Salander-O'Reilly art galleries.[16][17] After the gallery's owner Lawrence Salander accumulated debts to multiple clients, including Schupak, he was forced to postpone a huge exhibition.[18] Slotnick went on to secure hundreds of works from Salander for Renaissance Art Galleries.[19] Slotnick also represented Weitz Communication, was quoted as a legal expert in Bloomberg for his opinion on the Plaxico Burress case.[20][21] Additionally, he won a $2 million suit for a woman who had permanent liver damage from the diabetes drug Rezulin.[22] Slotnick worked for Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and was acknowledged for his work in the New York Times bestselling book Chutzpah.[23]
