Talented, dedicated leader
I couldn't be happier with the results that Chantale Suttle's Dadvocacy got me and my son during my separation and custody issues. The firm was straightforward, helpful, friendly and in charge every step of the way the court, the opposing council and ultimately got my 50/50 custody. my son could not be happier thank you Chantale and Dadvocacy, five stars.

Fiancee got justice
I am glad we hired Chantale. My fiancee has never had a peaceful visit with his kids because his ex tries to control everything. She answered our questions and got her in front of a judge who finally listened and helped my fiancee.

An Amazing Attorney
Chantale is simply an amazing attorney all the way around! She has been my family attorney for nearly two years in Miami. Prior to working with Chantale I had worked with four different attorneys and I had interviewed several others, so I have a strong basis in which to provide this review. Chantale's expertise is wide-ranging. She has helped me on the simplest issues to highly complex family law matters. From timeshare and child support issues to relocation and even an appellate case, Chantale has proven to me time and time again to be a fighter with passion and compassion! My children were taken out of the U.S. to a foreign country and now they are back! Her courtroom presence is dominate and her attention to procedural details is spot-on! She has demonstrated to me over-and-over her ability to "think outside the box" when it comes to finding solutions to complex family law issues. Chantale is not afraid to stand up, speak up and challenge the court on behalf of her clients and fathers. The name of her firm, Dadvocacy, says it all and she fights hard for fathers. At the same time she will wisley advise her clients when a legal battle does not make economic sense or when it is time to negotiate a settlement on a particular issue. She does not waste time or your legal expense dollar in bringing closure to your family law matter. Chantale is fair on fees and provides great results and tremendous value for her clients. Chantale is also supported by an amazing staff! Her associate attorneys share the same critical thinking traits as Chantale and share her passion to solve the issues. When you work with Chantale the whole staff makes you feel like family and every member of the staff is working hard in an organized manner for the client. Hiring a family law attorney is not easy and unfortunately I have had to do it several times over the course of five years. When you are standing in front of a judge or sitting at the negotiating table with your former "better half"...Your future and the future of your children is in the hands of your attorney. There is no room to make the mistake of hiring the wrong attorney for your case. Chantale has demonstrated to me over a long period of time on a wide range of family law issues, she takes this responsibility very serious and Chantale will do whatever it takes to get a favorable outcome for fathers and their children. With Chantale it is not just about generating a is about fighting for what is right and being an advocate for the rights of fathers in Miami! Chantale is one of a kind and I continue to be very grateful she is on my side!

Mrs. Suttle is definitely is one of a kind at what she does, she help me restore faith in what was a losing battle prior to seeking her guidance. The ability to be apart of my children's lives is a blessing like no other. She is fair and help me understand all that was going on throughout the process. I will definitely recommend her to any father that's in need of a miracle. Thanks again for all your efforts.

Fathers Right Advocate
Ms. Suttle was able to help me with something I never thought was possible. At my free initial consultation she educated me with what was to come and explained my rights as a father. Within no time I was back in my kids life as the mother of my children believed I shouldn't of been. Thanks to Ms. Suttle I have the opportunity to be apart of my children's lives and grow as a family. I will definitely recommend Ms. Suttle to others.

Great family law attorney
Ms. Suttle was very quick to respond to my questions and needs. I loved that she had so much knowledge and had been a child support magistrate judge. My case had been dragging on for a long time, but after I hired Ms. Suttle, she fixed things for me quickly. I was very happy with her results, and I recommended her to some friends.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I highly endorse this lawyer. Chantale has an honest heart for helping her clients and recognizes the damage that family court can do when money and power clouds judgment. She is all about her clients and will not sacrifice her ethics in her representation. As a fathers rights attorney, I have seen how many lawyers may try to market themselves as advocates for fathers. I can honestly say that her firm may be the only other fathers rights firm that truly understands what men go through. She is highly recommended."
Family Attorney | Feb 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"It is with great pleasure that I write this review of my friend and colleague, Chantale Suttle. I know of no other attorney who has the same mix of compassion, empathy, and bull-dog tenacity. She has an innate ability to drill down and connect with what is really important to her clients. She forms a bond and then zealously advocates for her clients. But here’s the thing, she tempers her advocacy with realistic goals. She provides her clients with information that they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear."
Family Attorney | Feb 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
