Alan J. Robertson joined Sloan Law Firm in 2009 after earning his law degree from Baylor Law School. He has been building a busy practice ever since.
“There’s never a dull moment around here,” Alan says. “There’s always something new and always a challenge we’re being presented with.”
Alan is a skilled trial lawyer who enhanced his skills by attending Trial Lawyers College. Although he loves the oral give-and-take that is part of being a trial lawyer, Alan has also proven adept at writing.
“So much of a trial practice now has shifted to a writing practice, and I’ve developed an ability to do that kind of work,” he says.
Alan grew up just north of Longview, in Pittsburg. He attended Howard Payne University in Brownwood, graduating summa cum laude with a degree in Political Science in 2006. He then enrolled at Baylor Law School, where he was a member of the school’s nationally ranked mock-trial advocacy teams.
After law school, Alan returned to East Texas and focused his legal career on helping individuals whose lives have been disrupted by injuries caused by the negligence of others. The majority of his cases involve automobile and truck accidents. However, he has also handled cases involving oil-field injuries, defective products, and medical malpractice.
Named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2020, Alan serves his profession through his active involvement in several legal organizations. From 2013 to 2019, he served on the State Bar of Texas Grievance Committee, which handles allegations of misconduct by lawyers in the state. He also previously served on the Membership Committee of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
He is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Longview, where he served on the church’s vestry (governing board) from 2020 to 2023. Alan volunteers his time with his son’s Boy Scout troop, and enjoys traveling with his family to National Parks, overseas, and to Baylor Bears games.
