Best Litigator in Miami (contract law, family law, business law)
John R Sutton has been my attorney for the last 6 years. I do not add my name as my case is still active in the Courts. When I reach final disposition, I will sign this recommendation with full disclosure. This firm has handled issues for me that include Family Law, Employment Law and Civil Litigation. I retained John Sutton for his reputation of Integrity, Legal Knowledge, Trial Law, Board Certification in Civil Litigation and his experience with Family Law. I can tell you that I am often amazed by the scope of his mind, he can remember and cite information which most of us forgot after we read it. Exceptional. I believe that every law student should be required to sit in on one if his trials to learn the proper way to formulate, present and defend an argument. If that were to happen, we would have a much greater population of Attorneys that are fair, competent and respect the law our Country designed. His office staff is highly skilled and work for him because they can't imagine working for anyone else. I will keep Mr. Sutton as my attorney for everything I need and very often recommend him to others to correct the mistakes made by high powered, over priced attorneys with outrageous fees and an outcomes which have left people destitute. John Sutton has a reputation with the Judges in Miami that is one of admiration and respect. I give John and his staff my highest recommendation .
