Mr. Sloan graduated from prestigious Pepperdine University in Malibu, California with a Juris Doctorate Degree and Certificate in Dispute Resolution. While it takes most law school students three years to graduate, Mr. Sloan worked diligently in order to earn his Juris Doctorate Degree and a separate Certificate in Dispute Resolution in 2 1/2 years.

That diligent work ethic has transferred to his representation of 2,300+ clients on DUI and other Vehicular-Related Offenses.

Mr. Sloan has spent the last 13+ years focusing his attention on DUI Defense Representation. He has done more than 100 Felony and Misdemeanor trials, earning numerous favorable results for his clients, including Not Guilty verdicts, dismissal of cases, and beneficial plea agreements.

He has written numerous published articles, created legal guides and charts used by attorneys throughout Arizona, trained 2,000+ attorneys on DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars over the years, and has received numerous awards and accolades from legal associations and publications. He is rated 10 out of 10 on AVvo.com; rated 4.9 out of 5.0 on Martindale-Hubbell; and was awarded several “Top 10 in Arizona,” “Top One Percent in the Nation,” and “Top 40 Under 40” awards.  Mr. Sloan was named one of the “Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona,” one of the “Top 100 Lawyers in the Nation”, and has won the SuperLawyers Rising Star Award the past five years, which is given to right around 10 DUI lawyers every year, out of Arizona and New Mexico combined.

Mr. Sloan is an outside-the-box thinker, and loves to come up with creative defenses. In past trials, Mr. Sloan created the defense of DUI Entrapment; successfully argued that his client’s sworn testimony was more believable than a Phoenix Lieutenant’s sworn testimony; and has continually argued that the jury verdict forms — allowing the jury to decide whether the defendant was “Guilty” or “Not Guilty” — violates the Constitutional Right of being “Innocent Until Proven Guilty,” as it focuses the jury’s attention on whether they believe the defendant “did it” or not, rather than whether the prosecutor has proven their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Mr. Sloan also successfully argued that under the Daubert Scientific Standard, retrograding a Blood Alcohol Content outside of two hours of driving, to within two hours of driving, is scientifically unreliable, and should result in the Blood Test Results being completely suppressed. This was a huge win for the DUI Defense community.  Unfortunately, soon thereafter, the Court of Appeals prevented this from being argued, making Mr. Sloan’s client one of the few, if not the only, person to have benefited from such an argument.

Mr. Sloan has also attended numerous seminars – both in-state and out-of-state – to keep up to date on the latest in DUI representation trends. He is also the Founding Member of The Arizona DUI Team.
