Meet Our Attorneys

Joseph M. Saab

Managing Partner

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, I moved to the Lake Area in 1987.  I attended school in Camdenton where I earned my high school diploma and was actively involved in student government, honor society, and numerous sporting associations.

After graduation, I commenced my undergraduate education at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri.  I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science with a minor in Criminal Justice in 2001.  During the Summer of my senior year at Missouri State University, I interned with now Associate Circuit Court Judge Eric D. Eighmy.

In the fall of 2002, I began at Oklahoma City University School of Law where I quickly learned the value of preparation and dedication to the legal profession.  In the spring of 2003, I began working for the firm of McAfee & Taft in Oklahoma City.  There, I was trained in legal research, legal drafting, and exposed to many different areas of the law.  I received my Juris Doctorate from Oklahoma City University School of Law in the spring of 2005.

Upon graduation from law school, I established Saab & Associates in Camdenton, Missouri.  I began my career as legal counsel and Vice President of American Realty and Development, a small commercial development company based in Camdenton, Missouri owned by my late father, George Saab.

In late 2015, I moved my law practice to Lake Ozark, Missouri and joined The Cisar Law Firm, P.C., as an attorney of-counsel.

In mid-2017, Saab & Associates, Inc. moved to its current location in Camdenton, Missouri.

Since becoming a licensed attorney, I have handled a variety of cases.  My areas of practice include:  Civil Litigation; Family Law; Estate Planning; Probate/Trust Administration; Real Estate Law; and Business Law.

The majority of my free time is spent with my wife, Kimberly Saab, and my three adorable children, Carter, Lillian, and Hudson.  My family and I enjoy golfing, boating, spending time at various sporting activities, and attending St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.  We are truly blessed to live in such a wonderful community that allows us to enjoy the Lake of the Ozarks.

John E. Slayton, Esq.

Attorney at Law

I was born in Independence, Missouri, and attended high school at William Chrisman High School,
where I was involved in sports, scholar’s bowl, honor society, and student government.

Upon graduation from high school in 2008, I attended Graceland University, a small private
Christian college, in southern Iowa. At Graceland, I participated in a leadership capacity of the
History club, and was inducted into Phi Alpha Theta. I graduated from Graceland with a B.A. in
History, and minors in Political Science and Spanish in May of 2012.

Upon graduation from undergraduate school, I worked for a year in South Korea, working at a
boarding school guiding middle-school-aged boys in their quest to learn English and grow.

Following that venture, I returned to the United States and entered the banking industry, working at
both large financial institutions (Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.) and small banks (State Savings Bank). I
worked in both the foreclosure and loan origination sectors.

In the summer of 2019, my wife and I moved to Kansas City where I enrolled in the University of
Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, and commenced classes that fall. During law school, I externed
with the Office of Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA), the legal arm of the Department of Homeland
Security, and worked in conjunction with OPLA attorneys in deportation proceedings. I was also a
member of Law Review at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law for two years.
Three years of law school and two children later, I graduated with Pro Bono Honors in May of 2021.

Following graduation from law school and passing the Missouri bar, I accepted a position as an
Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Camden County, serving the Lake Area in upholding and
defending the laws of the State of Missouri, and during my tenure at the Camden County
Prosecutor’s Office, I was a member of the Camden County Treatment Court team.

In 2023, I accepted a position as an Associate Attorney at Saab & Associates, Inc.

I spend non-working time with my college sweetheart, Aubrey, and our two children, July and
Meadow. Our family enjoys the outdoor amenities that the Ozarks provide and attending St. Francis
de Sales Catholic Church in Lebanon.
