Vernon L. Jarboe

Sloan Law Firm's current President, Mr. Jarboe has practiced law in northeast Kansas for more than 30 years. He is a 1973 graduate of Washburn University, earning a Bachelor of Political Science degree. He received his Juris Doctorate at the Washburn University School of Law in 1977, and earned an L.L.M. in Taxation from the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 1980.

Mr. Jarboe concentrates his practice in the areas of real estate and business law. He is one of relatively few attorneys in Kansas with extensive experience in condemnation cases. He regularly authors material for publication and lectures on real estate and construction law matters. He lectures several times each year to attorneys and real estate professionals, and is an occasional professor, teaching business and real estate law for the School of Business at Washburn University.

In addition to his work in the real estate and business law fields, Mr. Jarboe has been engaged in many aspects of civil law, including litigation. He served as City Attorney for the City of Topeka from 1989 to 1994 and was appointed by the Governor to the position of General Counsel to the Kansas Department of Revenue in June 1994. Except for his time in public service, he has been in the private practice of law since his law school graduation.

Mr. Jarboe actively serves the community. He has been involved with the Boy Scouts, Heartland Works, the Topeka Corporate Volunteer Council, the Capitol Area Red Cross, the United Way, citizen review panels, and as a volunteer at a central city public elementary school. He was selected to participate in Leadership Greater Topeka through the Topeka Chamber of Commerce, and graduated from the program in 1993. In addition, he serves the legal profession as a member of the Real Estate Probate and Trust and Ethics Advisory Committees for the Kansas Bar Association.

Admitted to practice before all Kansas state and federal courts, Mr. Jarboe is also admitted to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Tax Court. He is a member of the Kansas Bar Association and the Topeka Bar Association.
