Haskell Slaughter & Young, LLC was a law firm with offices in Park Place Tower at 2001 Park Place in Birmingham, as well as in Montgomery, Atlanta and New York. The firm was founded in 1973 by Wyatt Haskell and Bill Slaughter. Frank Young joined soon afterward and created the firm's litigation practice. Mike Rediker came to the firm in 2001 and was later made a senior partner, resulting in the name Haskell Slaughter Young & Rediker.

The firm was associated with numerous municipal bond issues, including the deals that led to the Jefferson County debt crisis.

In June 2013 former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones left Haskell Slaughter form a new partnership. That December Rediker and nine other staff attorneys left the firm to join the Birmingham office of Tampa, Florida-based Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell. Haskell Slaughter closed their Park Place offices, as well as branches in Atlanta and New York, on February 28, 2014.

Meanwhile the firms founders, Wyatt Haskell and Bill Slaughter, founded a new partnership which would also operate the former Haskell Slaughter branch in Montgomery.
