Sloan grew up in East Texas and attended Baylor University.

Attorney John Sloan grew up in East Texas before attending Baylor University for his undergraduate degree in 1977 then moving on to law school and graduating in 1980. After graduating from law school he moved back to his hometown in East Texas and joined a small firm to begin gaining experience in a variety of different kinds of law. During that time, he married another native Texan and they had two children whom he has remained devoted to ever since.

He practiced many kinds of law before realizing his affinity for personal injury law.

The law firm where Sloan began practicing law handled all sorts of cases across a wide range of legal fields. This allowed him to gain versatile experience that could benefit him in every year. After around three years of practice, Sloan discovered that he was attracted to helping people who had been injured put the pieces of their lives back together. This calling is what gave him the idea to open his own personal injury firm, where he could focus exclusively on helping wrongfully injured parties and their families.

After several years of practice, Sloan opened his own law firm in Longview, Texas.

When Sloan moved to Longview, Texas, to open his own personal injury firm, it felt like a big city and has since developed a small town feel. He has tried over 100 cases to verdict since beginning to practice law. Since then, he has invited other talented, committed personal injury attorneys to join his law firm and increase the impact they could have on the lives of those in need of compassionate, experienced legal help. Like most reputable personal injury attorneys, Sloan and his team offer free consultations and work on contingency, allowing their clients to focus on healing and recovery while they handle the individual needs of the clients that come to them seeking help.

Video Transcript:

My name’s John Sloan. I was born and raised in east Texas, grew up about 30 miles south of the town I live in now.

I’m proud to say I’ve got two wonderful, healthy, beautiful, smart children and a lovely wife, Dee Anne, who grew up in Tyler, Texas, about 35 miles from here. I went to Baylor University, went all the way through there. Got an undergraduate degree in 1977, and then a law degree in 1980. When I got out of law school, I went back to my hometown. It was a small law firm. We did everything, was involved in all sorts of different kinds of law, and I just always was attracted to helping people who had been injured and helping them piece their lives back together.

The first real trial in the district court was a murder case after I’d been licensed about five weeks and since that time, I’ve tried over 100 cases to verdict, so I decided after about three years of practice to move to what I thought at the time was a big city of Longview, Texas and start my own law firm. And so that’s what I did and I specialized from that point on in personal injury.
