    I am an attorney practicing out of the Lehigh Valley and have represented everyone from professional football players to state legislators. Mr. Sloane was one of my professors in law and he was one of the best. I am also very familiar with his exceptional work and appellate experiance. Many years after his class, I am still beginning to grasp things I learned in his class. If you need one of the heavy hitters for constitutional law or anything related to government, Mr. Sloane would be your man.
