I can't say enough about this man! I went to him after receiving a DUI. I was broken, humiliated and embarrassed! But more than anything, I was scared to death. After our first visit, I knew that he was going to do everything in his power to help me. And he did! To make a long story short, he worked his experience and knowledge of the law and got my charges dropped!! I can't thank him enough! In my opinion, and the opinion of others, he's the Best on the Beach!

I was referred to Mr. Sutton by a friend who assured me that he was the best at what he does in Myrtle Beach. He took a lot of time with me in my initial consultation going over everything and explaining everything to me. I trusted him thoroughly after that and hired him immediately. He reassured me throughout the whole 9 month process and really went to bat for me in the court room. He kept me informed every step of the way and always educated me on every outcome that was possible.

He defended me on a dui charge. He collected information from the officer and I, assessed the best course of action, and went with it after clearly explaining it to me.
I highly recommend Mr. Sutton for DUI cases and I am sure he would provide the same level of satisfaction for other cases in his focus.

Bob Sutton saved my life. Figuratively anyway. I had been going through a very tough time and after a night of drinking I made a poor decision to drive home. I fell asleep at the wheel and rolled my car. I am so thankful that I did not hurt anyone else! I was taken to the hospital and a blood sample was taken. It was a .28 but it was taken without a search warrant, which Mr. Sutton told me is now required in some cases.
I was very depressed after being charged with this DUI and I really felt like I was at rock bottom. Obviously I did not want to go to jail and I desperately wanted a second chance. After meeting with Mr. Sutton he calmed me down and gave me hope. By some miracle he was able to find an issue with the blood sample and get me a plea to a lesser charge that wasn't a DUI. I am so thankful for all of his hard work and for not giving up on what seemed to me like an impossible case. I really can't thank him enough, but I told him I was going to build a statue of him in front of his office!

I was charged with DUI. I am not an American citizen, which made the case even harder. Bob Sutton was honest and straight-forward. He said that if I get Dui it might lead to difficulties when I travel in and out of the country. It is hard to promise anything in that type of situation, but I felt confident that he would do anything possible to help me. I hoped for PTI because I knew I did not do good on the sobriety test. Bob was also prepared to go to trial if we did not get PTI. Fortunately, my charge was reduced to reckless driving, which was unbelievable. I am very thankful to Bob Sutton for all his hard work and support.

OK, Basically he handled 3 DUI cases for me (2 were for the same incident) and the other was about 6 months later..
But what happened was in the first incident I passed out and went 50mph into a tree (low blood sugar NOT DUI) but they took me to the hospital I had a concussion ect ect and had weeks of amnesia after this incident, and because of it evidently they thought I was on DRUGS/ALCOHOL, but supposedly I refused a drug test so I lost my license and that's 1 DUI thing (FYI hospital tested me for all drugs/alcohol and I was clean) I called Bob (Sutton) and he got my refusal for drug/alcohol testing tossed out because I wasn't coherent enough to make any decision at the time... Then yes I still had the other major DUI part to get rid of... but then before this case was resolved 6 months later I got another DUI again called Bob and he was a lot of help/understanding and yes brutally honest... end conclusion he got all 3 charges tossed out and I wound up with 1 wreckless driving charge. Oh another fyi about me I'm also disabled (officially got the plates and everything now) but bottom line I LOVE THIS MAN, if you ever get in trouble this is the guy to call. Now even though I love this man I hope I never have to see him again atleast in the DUI matters anymore but he literally saved my life because an DUI charge can really ruin your life, ie if your looking for work, ect ect. THANKS BOB I WISH I COULD GIVE YOU 100+ STARS and a thanks doesn't even come close to what this guy did for me.

I had never been in legal trouble before my DUI in Myrtle Beach. I deeply thought that my life was over and that I had no chance in fighting this since the proliferation of very stringent laws against DUIs with the marketing campaigns of "buzzed driving is drunk driving" and MADD. I was a nervous wreck. After I got ahold of Mr. Sutton he calmed me down, gave me very clear instructions on what to do, and then learned about me as a person and any merits I had. I talked to him almost once a week if it wasn't me calling him it was the other way around. He was very involved in my continued progress in my personal and professional life and would indicate to me whenever there was a new development or he had found an issue. He pored through the videos and statements and found multiple discrepencies that made it so what was a DUI was now a reckless driving that gets expunged after completion of PTI. I look to him as my personal savior and if I'm ever down there again we're getting drinks. By that I mean sodas because he gave me very solid advice through reflection with my history that I shouldn't drink, and I don't.

Mr. Sutton was referred to me by a coworker. This was a trusted coworker, yet with my future on the line I was skeptical. Mr. Sutton met and far exceeded my expectations. After first meeting him, nerves a wreck, his advice was stay out of trouble first, and try not to worry. I had never had legal trouble so I was a nervous wreck. He handled everything, keeping me entirely updated along the way without scaring me to death. He instructed me in a very detailed way and anything that did not require my presence he handled. I couldn't be happier with him. I highly advise anyone with legal trouble within his expertise to not go elsewhere. He will handle the case in the utmost professional manner while leaving the client with a peace of mind.

I am so impressed with the outcome of my case that I cannot say enough about the professional and astute manner in which my case was handled. Bob is an outstanding lawyer and a formidable advocate for his clients. He instilled in me a great sense of security in his competence and eagerness to provide me with excellent service. I am so grateful I found Bob on AVVO to begin with, and am delighted to report that my case ended with a fabulous result on my behalf. I would without hesitation be delighted to refer Bob to anyone who was in need of his expertise. Bob is a great credit to his profession and I hold him in the highest esteem!

Last year I was charged with DUI. Being my second offense I was sure I was doomed and was positive a public defendant couldn't help me. I searched lawyers in the area and found his profile here. The reviews were excellent and he looked the part. When I called him I left a message and received a return call minutes later. He asked me the details of my case and then told me exactly what my options where and what he could do for me if I chose to hire him. After talking to him I knew there was no need to talk to anyone else because this man knows what he's doing. Throughout my experience Bob kept me updated and informed about my case. When my final court date was getting closer I was discouraged and nervous but Bob reassured me that I had a good case if it had to go to trial. I trusted him and his experience and when it did go to trial he showed what 20+ years of experience in the field was worth. I felt like I was watching Law & Order as I sat in the courtroom and watched him prove my case. He did an excellent job throughout my entire experience and got me the Not Guilty I so desperately wanted to hear. Completely satisfied and grateful for his service.
