Mr Sutton did an amazing job with my DUI case. My wife and I were down in Myrtle Beach on vacation and were sited with a DUI. The prosecutor was determined to get a DUI conviction and yet through perseverance and extreme diligence over the course of 9 months Robert was able to get my sentence reduced to a Reckless Op. I am eternally grateful and would highly recommend Mr Sutton to anyone faced with a similar situation.
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for all that Mr. Sutton has done for me. I was arrested in a parking lot, sitting in the passenger seat, and the keys were in the center console. I was told that a cab driver saw me driving and called the police to report me. The case was difficult since I failed the sobriety tests and when I was brought to the station, I thought I was being compliant by participating in the BAC test. I was charged with a DUAC and knew that I needed a lawyer who can handle a charge as large as mine. After researching a while, my mother found the Sutton Law Firm and knew Robert M Sutton Jr. would be the lawyer for me.
I met with Bob and instantly felt comfortable when explaining what I remembered. I never thought that something like this would happen to me and I never thought a lawyer would actually believe my side of the story, but Bob did. From there Bob worked very hard directing me on what I should do. I provided him with my college grades, my thesis, and professional recommendations, really anything that proves that I am a good person with a bright future. Bob continued to talk with the prosecutor to see if there was any plea bargain. After 7 long months of waiting, I got a phone call. I have never heard someone so enthusiastic in my life. Bob called to tell me that I was being offered a Pre-Trial Intervention. The intervention was rigorous but I knew how hard Bob had to work for me to be granted this opportunity and I knew how much my future meant to me. I finished the intervention in 4 months rather than the 6 I was allowed. Throughout the process Bob would be checking in and seeing how my job was. He had the presence of a friend who really wanted to see me succeed. Now my charges are being dropped and I have the option to expunge my arrested without any conviction. If you want a lawyer who will be by your side the entire way for something that can be hurtful to your mental health and your future, Bob is your guy. He will never fully understand how grateful I am that he believed me, fought for me, and was there for me. I know many of you may think, “Well he is paid to do so,” but I can tell you all from experience that I did not pay nearly enough for what that man did for me. Well I said my peace and wanted anyone who finds themselves in the same position as me who is feeling hopeless, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and Robert Sutton will help you find your way there.
The right decision I made through this whole process was to have faith in my attorney, Bob Sutton. He instilled confidence in me that something could be done about my situation. He actively pursued a plan of action that resulted in a dismissal of charges. I rested easy knowing that my attorney was highly competent. What I liked most about him was the fact that he derived personal gratification from successful representation of his client. He did a good job and I would recommend him.
Bob Sutton was a no nonsense attorney, on our initial meeting via telephone he was very direct and to the point and that's how all lawyers should approach a client and their case..
Mr. Sutton was open, honest and totally up front with me from the very beginning of our attorney/client relationship. Immediately informed me of the seriousness of the charges against me and made no over zealous commitments. He questioned me as to my expectation of the finale results of the charges against me. Upon informing him my expectations was a dismissal, he did not lead me on to believe that would be a certain outcome. Approximately 45 days into this ordeal Mr. Sutton traveled out west to be married and honeymoon. Right in the midst of his honeymoon an issue arose where the arresting PD was attempting to get me in to home detention to put a monitoring device on me. Mr. Sutton took the time from his honeymoon to work through his covering attorney and the Bond Judge to have this order lifted within just a few days. Upon Mr. Sutton's return he shortly thereafter was able to have another Bond Judge mandate ( no co-habitation order) lifted. On July 18th or thereabouts Mr. Sutton called to inform me the prosecuting solicitor had agreed to dismiss the charges against me. End result, exactly what I had hoped and prayed for. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to you Mr, Robert Sutton,
Mr. Sutton represented my daughter who had several shoplifting charges against her that would have ruined her chances for being a contributing member of society once she got her affairs in order.
Mr. Sutton studied her situation at length, presented options with positive outcomes, met with prosecutors and obtained a result that put my daughter back on the right track. 6 months after her court date Mr. Sutton continues to check in with her although his representation of her has ended. While there are many diplomas, certificates of achievements and recognitions in his office, he is most proud of notes from former clients that he has helped and how their lives are now transformed. His help goes beyond the courtroom and truly wants to make sure his clients are doing well. He is the best attorney in Myrtle Beach to help a client that wants to change themselves. His services have gone beyond his fees.
I came to mr sutton when I was needing legal representation and was very impressed from the moment I stepped into his office and the way he cared about my legal needs as a friend and not about the money aspect .Mr sutton not only cared about my legal needs at that time but will follow up with me and make sure I'm doing ok from time to time which really sets him apart in his field .Mr sutton has earned my legal representation whenever my needs arise .
From the onset, Bob was a great help & resource!! Highly recommend him as a competent, thorough attorney!! He stayed in touch & answered ALL questions the same day!! He went above & beyond what I expected!! He put my mind at ease in a strange state & helped me more than I can express!! Thank You Sooo Much!!!
I was referred to Robert by A friend and he called me ( show me another lawyer that will do that ).
I met with Robert and he quickly proved to me that he is a down to earth guy and a damn good lawyer.
Mr. Sutton handled my DUI case and while doing so he explained to me exactly what all was going to happen and how it would happen and in terms that I could understand.
Robert is a very sincere and personable. He makes you feel as if you are talking to a friend not a lawyer.
Robert won my case and didn't just shake my hand and send me on my way. He hugged me and then called me later to check on me like a friend would do.
I would recommend him to others in need of a lawyer and in fact already have.
ALL AROUND OUTSTANDING GUY...
After being charged with a DUI, I was confronted with one the biggest problems I had ever faced in my life. Before my initial consultation with Bob, I did some research online and it was clear that he was experienced, not only in the courtroom, but in his ability to train others in the law profession. That got me to his door.
Upon meeting Bob, I knew quickly that he was the right choice. He was upfront, honest, sincere, and most important, genuine. I left his office completely understanding my situation along with a sense of trust that Bob was going to help me to the best of his ability.
I would recommend Bob to anyone who needs help. His name isn't plastered all over the highway and yellow pages because he doesn't have to. People in the area know he is good, which is the best advertising possible. While many say there are too many lawyers out there, which may be true, there aren't enough great lawyers like Bob in practice today. He makes up for the bad ones ten fold.
