His Story
"False allegations? They don’t stand a chance."
His Story

Don't let his laid back style fool you- a significant portion of Attorney Sloane’s practice is focused on complex high-conflict litigation cases, including numerous parenting and custody issues involving domestic violence, substance abuse, DCF matters, and untreated personality disorders. He has the ability to strongly advocate for our clients in the courtroom in a way that causes the Judge to take notice. But where Attorney Sloane finds true gratification is helping our clients find ways to resolve their disputes to avoid the emotionally tolling process that litigation can also put a client through.

Attorney Sloane’s peaceful and easygoing persona lends itself to a higher number of amicable settlements, and his calm resilience helps his clients feel as though a weight has been taken off their shoulders so they can move forward in life to create a better future.

Attorney Sloane’s goal is to make the process easier for you, not harder. He is constantly looking out for your long-term best interest, which sometimes may conflict with short-term interests. He keeps his clients informed in these situations so they understand the strategy and plan to help get them where they want to go. He always provides realistic expectations for his clients while still empowering them to take control of their lives to create internal change. It's this personal change that he often finds leads to not only the best legal results but also allows his clients a path to find happiness instead of falling back into repetitive behaviors once the litigation is over.

Attorney Sloane graduated cum laude from Berklee College of Music and originally decided to go to law school to practice entertainment law. However, Attorney Sloane quickly found that he excelled at trial advocacy and litigation during his education at St. John’s University School of Law. During law school, Attorney Sloane worked for the Honorable Michael Stallman and the Honorable Lewis Bart Stone in the New York Supreme Court.

Not only well versed in family law, Attorney Sloane has extensive experience in both the District and Superior Courts dealing with criminal cases involving charges of domestic assault and battery, felony drug possession and intent to distribute, and firearm violations. He has successfully tried both bench and jury trials. He also has both obtained and defended restraining order requests for his clients.

Family law became the practice area that Attorney Sloane found himself most drawn to as he saw a few of his family members go through divorce and saw the impact it can have on a person’s life. His passion for family law grew with his belief that being involved in someone’s family law case has such an immense impact on everything within that person’s life and their future and he takes that role very seriously. Attorney Sloane values the ability to help a parent’s relationship with their child stay connected, to help a client obtain a financial foundation to allow them move forward in life in a new way, and to connect people with resources necessary not only to help in the here and now but that they can take with them and use for the rest of their lives.

When Adam is not working, you can often find him active in his community. He has spent time volunteering with the Salvation Army, teaching piano and music lessons to disadvantaged children, being active in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America program, as well as regularly donating his time to the Lawyer-of-the Day program. Additionally, Adam has a band that he started where he plays piano and sings, he plays tennis, and loves to spend time in the Cape with his wife and extended family.

Attorney Sloane is based out of our Hanover office in Plymouth County, but also regularly practices in Norfolk County, Middlesex County, Bristol County, Worcester County, Barnstable County, Nantucket County, Dukes County, Essex County, and Suffolk County.
