    • I recommend James Sustaita.

    We hired James in December 2013 and ended our case today February 2015. I was facing a felony charge and looking to take on probation and a lot of other things that i Just did not want. James got the felony dropped right away. After a Grand Jury Trial today ended with a not guilty. I am so thankful to James for rescuing me from a life that would not have been good for me a my husband or family. I would hire James again. I watched James in action today and realized how good he is at doing what he does. Kudos to you James and Milan and the Sustaita Team

    • I do not recommend James Sustaita.

    James took over 6 months to file case in Harris County after he was hired and paid. Never dismissed case in Austin, had to hire a new lawyer to fix Sustaita mistakes. What ever you don't hire James.

    We didn't even know that my husband had charges and called James to help us out in a bind. He is a rock star! He was able to get the charges dismissed in less than time than my husband's prior charge with a different lawyer. I highly recommend James with his experience and set of skills he wont disappoint.

    • I recommend James Sustaita.

    We employed the services of James Sustaita on recommendation of a former client. From the initial phone and personal interveiw with Mr. Sustaita he was genuinely concerned with providing us the best legal representation. He was direct, a gentleman, and provided guidance and mentoring to our grandson. I highly recommend him as he is very experienced, honest and on-top of his cases. Thank you Mr. Sustaita for your representation.

    • I recommend James Sustaita.

    I'm telling you from personal experience. James Sustaita has proven to me that there is such a thing as an attorney who is TRUE to his word, trustworthy of his promises, and truly a man of his word. I was dealt several situations that I couldnt handle individually much less all at the same time ranging from criminal accusations to attempts to tear my family to shreds. I turned everything over to Mr James Sustaita under his sole security that I should no longer worry that he could stop all the nonsense and was there to protect me and my family. I can't lie, I was skeptical of attorneys based on others' previous misleadings and lies. But I assure you that Mr James Sustaita is not to be mistaken as an ordinary attorney. HE is truly one who will take care of business professionally and without fail. I know for a fact that he is an attorney that can be depended on and trusted to fully handle all he says.
    MR JAMES SUSTAITA IS TOP NOTCH AND HAS PROVEN HIS SUCCESS

    • I recommend James Sustaita.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired James after a bitter ex decided he would pay child support when he felt like it. James' knowledge in this area of family law is excellent! He kept me informed of each step along the way. Whenever we were in the courtroom, James made me feel at ease and confident. I am thankful to James for getting the results I not only wanted, but needed. I have no problem recommending him. Great attorney!

    • I recommend James Sustaita.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my Child Custody matter.

    I hired James to handel my divorce and temporay custody hearing. James took my case with the upmost professionalism, he dismantled my soon to be ex wife case piece by piece. I was in a very abusive relationship, James listened to eveything I told him and proved all of her allegations were nothing but lies. I haved to express that James Sustaita is BEST Lawyers in austin with out a doubt. The statics show only 15% of fathers win sole custody of there children, with James expertise and great knowlege of the Law I won sole custody of my beautiful baby girl. I am forever thankful to him and Rodney Sustaita they belived in me and proved you can not judge a book by its cover. If there is anyone looking for a attorney who will fight for you and what you belive in look no futher hire James he is a Winner!!!!!!!!!
