Frank C. Sluzis, Esquire. Mr. Sluzis focuses his practice on Criminal Defense, Family Law, Workers' Compensation, Liquor License, and Municipal Law, among other areas of law.

Having joined Scaringi & Scaringi P.C. in August 2007, Mr. Sluzis brings more than 25 years of legal experience to the firm. As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Sluzis has taken over 100 criminal cases to trial including several homicide cases. Mr. Sluzis has developed an extensive criminal defense practice ranging from cases involving homicide, sex and drug offenses to white collar crime in state and federal courts throughout Pennsylvania. He is certified to represent defendants in capital cases.

Mr. Sluzis is also a former Divorce Master of Dauphin County and Divorce and Support Court Master in Schuylkill County. In this capacity, Mr. Sluzis presided over many divorce and support cases and issued recommended rulings to the presiding judge on all aspects of litigated divorce cases including equitable distribution and alimony. His years as Divorce and Support Court Master have provided Mr. Sluzis with invaluable experience that he uses today representing clients in divorce, support and custody cases.

Mr. Sluzis is the former Chief Prosecutor of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) Nuisance Bar program and former Assistant Counsel to the PLCB. During his years with the PLCB, Mr. Sluzis developed considerable experience in handling cases involving liquor license non-renewals for nuisance bar matters and citation, enforcement and forfeiture matters.

Upon leaving the PLBC, Mr. Sluzis has developed an extensive private practice representing liquor licensees in the above-described areas before the PLCB and in the areas of liquor license law including the purchase, sale, renewal and determination of the value of liquor licenses and in the more general areas of concern for liquor licensees including employment law, commercial and civil litigation. He serves as an executive board member of the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association.

Mr. Sluzis is the past Regional Counsel to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation. In this position, Mr. Sluzis advised Administrative Law Judges (ALJ), who preside over workers' compensation hearings and decide the cases. Mr. Sluzis advised ALJs on the substantive and procedural laws involved in handling and determining a workers' compensation claim. As a result, Mr. Sluzis has developed extensive knowledge of how the Bureau of Workers' Compensation works and how to present cases on behalf of injured workers before the Workers' Compensation Board. As such, Mr. Sluzis is very well positioned to represent injured workers with their workers' compensation claims.

Mr. Sluzis has also developed an extensive municipal law practice. He was the former solicitor to Newport Borough, Perry County.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
