Texas Personal Injury Lawyer
Amanda Blons knew that she wanted to be a trial lawyer when she was just 6 years old, but her path to get there was long and winding. Now that she has reached her goal, Amanda could not be more excited to start her career as a trial attorney at the Sloan Firm, where she gets to fight for those that need it most.
Before attending law school, Amanda attended Aurora University,
where she graduated cum laude with a BA in Political Science. From there, life took her to six states in five years, before she settled down with her family in Texas. With three young children at home, Amanda started a baking business making cake pops and treats for events ranging from birthday parties to weddings. However, no matter how
many other roles she took on or careers she considered, she knew that her one goal was to be a lawyer.
When the ability to attend law school seemed like a reality, Amanda jumped on the opportunity. She attended the University Of Houston Law Center where she dove head first into gaining as much hands
on experience as possible. Amanda participated in clinics such as Juvenile Justice where she represented juveniles that were part of the foster care system, and the Criminal Defense Clinic where she worked alongside attorneys at the Public Defender’s Office. As a tutor of Contracts Law selected by her professor, she was able to help the newest students entering the Law Center.
Amanda’s biggest passion in law school was being a member of the UHLC Mock Trial Team, which she participated in all three years. In her second year, she won the intra-scholastic mock trial tournament,
which she went on to direct the following year. In her third year, she participated in three national competitions. She was a Semi-Finalist in the South Texas Mock Trial Competition, where Amanda was
named Outstanding Advocate. Her most cherished honor is being named to the Order of Barristers, a National Honor Society for students demonstrating strengths in trial advocacy.
Amanda is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and assists with judging and coaching the mock trial team at UHLC. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
