Jo Slama
Jo Slama graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1982. After working several years in the manufacturing industry as a marketing manager, Ms. Slama continued her education by entering law school. She graduated from Oklahoma City University School of Law in 1990, with high distinction. She was a member of the academic legal fraternity Phi Delta Phi and Order of Barristers.

Ms. Slama has committed her practice to the highly complex area of medical malpractice litigation and insurance bad faith. She limits her cases to those which involve catastrophic injury, wrongful death, or other significant injury or damages. Ms. Slama has handled virtually every type of malpractice case imaginable, from cerebral palsy/birth trauma cases, to anesthesia and surgery mistakes. Ms. Slama has represented clients in medical malpractice cases against all major hospitals within Oklahoma, including private health care systems and government run (city, county or federal hospitals, such as VA hospitals or Indian clinics and hospitals). Ms. Slama has also handled many cases against nursing homes, including large corporate chains, or individually owned and operated nursing homes.

Ms. Slama has served as adjunct law faculty at Oklahoma City University, teaching trial practice and applied evidence. She has also given presentations and lectures for continuing legal education in the areas of litigation technology, medical malpractice, and ERISA/insurance litigation.
