Practice Areas

We regret to inform you that Attorney Michael Sloan has died. Prior to his death, Michael asked that his Social Security cases be referred to Attorney Laura Gadness. Laura has been representing claimants before the Social Security Administration since 2006, and is honored by his trust in her.

Laura offers free Social Security and SSI consultations. No fee is paid unless/until a case is won. She realizes that it is often difficult for her clients to get to an attorney’s office, and she can handle most cases by phone and mail. If you would like to make a free appointment (phone or office – your choice) with Laura, please call her office at 214-473-8383 or toll free 844-752-6652 or email her at

If you have a pending claim with Mr. Sloan as your representative, you will not have to start over. Laura can pick up your case at its current level. Usually this will not delay your claim. Nonetheless, it is important that you contact her immediately so that she can she begin work on your case as soon as possible.

An Experienced Attorney in McKinney, Texas

At the Law Offices of Michael Sloan, we focus on two primary areas of law: family law and Social Security disability claims. We also represent clients throughout Collin County in car accident claims and other personal injury cases.

An initial consultation is always free and always confidential. Contact us today to make an appointment.

Social Security disability and Supplemental Security Income

You are entitled to benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if a disease or injury prevents you from engaging in substantial gainful activity for a year or more.

Many disability insurance claims are denied because the applicant didn't understand the filing process or did not provide sufficient medical evidence of the disabling disease or condition.

In addition to government disability benefits, some people may be entitled to benefits from private insurance or an employer-sponsored plan. The application process for private benefits can be just as rigorous. Our law firm can help you file your application or appeal a denied claim for private disability benefits.

Family law and divorce

At the Law Offices of Michael Sloan, we emphasize a calm, practical approach to family law cases, whether our client comes to us for help with a problem like divorce or a joyful event like an adoption. We believe that an overly emotional approach to family conflict can result in a too-costly process that leaves emotional scars.

On the other hand, a calm approach and help from a compassionate lawyer can result in an efficient resolution that is acceptable to everyone and that serves the long-term interests of the family.

We take this approach in all family law cases, including situations involving conflicts over child support or child custody or when modifications are needed to existing divorce decrees or family court orders.

We also provide basic estate planning and probate services to individuals and families. We write wills and advance health care directives, and we advise personal representatives as they move a will through the probate process.

Car accidents

When someone's negligence harms you in any kind of motor vehicle accident, you need caring legal representation from a lawyer who understands the impact an injury can have on your life and ability to work. We represent victims of car, truck and motorcycle accidents.

Personal injury claims

We handle all types of personal injury claims, including brain and head injuries, amputation, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and paralysis. If you were injured as a result of someone else's negligence, we can help you obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses. We also represent family members of wrongful death victims.
