intervention on my behalf was a great deal more than what I have shared here.
I met Sloan
during a very tough time in my life, a point where I didn't know what to do and if I even had a case.
I knew I was hurt and knew I was wronged, I just didn't know if I could find someone who would believe in me and be willing to take my case.
I had initially met with a few lawyers who didn't think I had a case, or didn't really take the time to hear me out.
The first thing that was obvious about Sloan
was that he

All of Sloan
's hard work resulted in me winning my case and sincerely words can't express my appreciation for what he
has done for me and my family.
There were many occasions when we had only to pick up the telephone and talk to Sloan
personally, to alleviate our fears, for guidance or direction, reassurance or answers to our questions and each time feel some level of comfort.

Thank you Sloan
