About Sebastian

Learn Sebastian’s areas of practice.

Sebastian M. Norton, Esq. is an accomplished and reputed Virginia and D.C. attorney specializing in estate planning as well as criminal, traffic and juvenile representation.

Sebastian has provided countless Virginia and D.C. clients with necessary, custom-tailored testamentary documents such as wills, trusts, power of attorney and advance medical directives. Additionally, Sebastian has represented hundreds of clients in courts in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. including multiple complex and high-level jury and bench trials.

A native of Alexandria, Virginia, Sebastian completed his studies in philosophy and political science at Tulane University in New Orleans, before being admitted to Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, where he served on the Law Review and graduated in the top 5% of his law school class.

During law school, Sebastian served as a research assistant to an esteemed criminal law and evidence professor, editing publications on constitutional rights and updating an annual evidence textbook.

Sebastian has also served as a legal clerk at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Louisiana, where he worked alongside federal prosecutors in cases involving public corruption, wage theft, environmental crimes, drug conspiracy, and police brutality (including the ‘Danziger Bridge’ cases).

Sebastian returned to Alexandria and the Washington, D.C. area and began to practice law in Virginia and Washington, D.C. He worked as an associate at a successful litigation law firm, Bartoli Cain Wason, PLLC, specializing in serious medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. Sebastian opened his own practice in 2014, The Norton Firm, focusing on estate planning and criminal defense.

Sebastian practiced at The Norton Firm until joining King, Campbell, Poretz & Mitchell, PLLC in January 2021. Sebastian has represented hundreds of clients and businesses in planning their estates for the future.

Sebastian was certified in 2013 by the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission to represent indigent clients charged with committing misdemeanors and serious felonies as well as juveniles charged with crimes, ranging from DUI and larceny to malicious wounding and serious gun and drug-related offenses.

Sebastian and his family reside in Alexandria and enjoy (pre-pandemic) going to Washington Nationals, Capitals and Wizards games. In his free time Sebastian has volunteered to coach youth soccer and basketball.

Sebastian has been acknowledged by Super Lawyers (an exclusive peer-reviewed publication) as a Rising Star in his practice areas from 2017 through 2021.

The prosecutor hade 3 eye witnesses, the victims statement, a incriminating text message, a firearm with me and the victim’s DNA on it, and a blood trail that lead from the crime scene all the way to my apartment door. With him I received a not guilty verdict.... I COULD’NT BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!! Sebastian Norton is the TRUTH!!!!!

Highly competent counselor
I retained Mr. Norton during the pandemic to update my estate plan including my will, living trust and associated documents. I’m a disabled vet and Sebastian went the extra mile to coordinate with my out of state tort attorney who had previously represented me in asbestos litigation to ensure that future settlements were also included in my will. Sebastian dealt with all the possible eventualities in my estate many that hadn’t occurred to me. Sebastian was very flexible in consideration of my disability and completed my estate remotely including executing the documents on the sidewalk while I remained in my car on a cold February day. I highly and unreservedly recommend Sebastian Norton as your legal counsel especially if you are disabled.

Great lawyer. Professional, knowledgeable, & friendly
We highly recommend Sebastian Norton. He was professional, knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, and easy to talk to. My husband and I hired him to prepare our estate planning documents during the pandemic (Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Medical Directives). He walked us through all the details of creating these documents and answered our questions carefully and patiently. He ensured that we understood everything and were comfortable with the final outcome. He listened carefully to everything we were trying to accomplish and drafted documents that provided exactly what we wanted. The entire experience was superb – if we need a lawyer in the future, we will definitely go to Sebastian.

Professional Attorney
Mr. Norton was my attorney for a case in January. It was a civil matter, and although this is not his area of expertise, he took the case. I immediately felt at ease as he took care of paperwork as well as explained and reassured me about details of procedure with which I was unfamiliar. I would recommend Mr. Norton for his calm demeanor, his attention to detail, and his determination to see a case through to its completion.

Fairfax County case.
I would like to take the time to thank Mr. Sebastian Marks Norton for helping me to have my case finalized and the outcome was to my favorite as well. Mr Norton negotiated with the Commonwealth's Attorney. He also had the knowledge an understanding about my case and my situation. He was also very polite and made me feel things are okay.
