Taylor B. Sloan
Attorney at Law
Taylor Sloan is a general practice attorney from Eastern Jackson County. His primary focus areas are criminal defense, DWI/DUI defense, traffic defense, suspended/revoked licenses, expungements, and orders of protection.
Taylor graduated from the University of Missouri in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Afterward, Taylor came back to Kansas City, where he obtained his law degree at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law in 2014. While a law student, he was very active in the school’s trial advocacy program, competing on UMKC’s national mock trial team and serving as a founding chair member on the UMKC Board of Barristers, an organization created to promote trial advocacy. Taylor was one of ten law students in his graduating class that were selected to become a member of the National Order of Barristers. This honor is bestowed upon students who exhibit the strongest courtroom advocacy skills. Taylor has remained active in UMKC School of Law’s trial advocacy program, regularly volunteering his time to judge mock trial tournaments.
After law school, Taylor got his start with Potter, Bologna & Blair, now Bologna & Blair, a small law firm in Liberty, Missouri. During his time at his former firm, he spent countless hours in courtrooms in both Missouri and Kansas, and he had the opportunity to learn from talented attorneys. In June 2018, Taylor was able to fulfill his long-held aspirations by opening his own office, Sloan Law Office, LLC. Since that time, he has continued to do what he loves: spend time in the courtroom and help people navigate their difficult legal issues. Taylor is a firm believer that knowing your audience is an important aspect to navigating the field of law and having the opportunity to spend countless hours in courtrooms all around the Kansas City area has given him familiarity with many of the judges and prosecutors, which is an invaluable tool he utilizes while representing his clients.

Why I Chose My Location
Growing up in Eastern Jackson County, Taylor has always considered this part of the Kansas City Metro as his home. Spending the first four years of his legal career north of the river allowed him to take in a part of this city that he seldom visited prior to beginning his career, however Taylor’s aspirations of opening his own office have always included the vision of moving his office to the area he grew up in. Choosing an office in Independence, Missouri has allowed Taylor to regain that sense of “home”, while also placing him in a central location that allows him to easily service all of the jurisdictions that surround Jackson County in both Missouri and Kansas.
