Hire Mr. Sutton, now!
I knew I found the right attorney for my contentious divorce and custody case after my initial consultation with Mr. Sutton. I had another attorney at the time and while I was not displeased with their counsel, changing my representation was the best decision for me and my family. I have worked with many attorneys professionally and Jamie is a unique breed. He won’t just take a case because he knows he can make money, he has a conscience and truly believes in justice. He’s very intelligent, attentive, strategic, organized and will do his best to represent and support his clients to the best of his ability. He has always been completely transparent and forthcoming in every matter we’ve dealt with, even when I didn’t like the answer. Many attorneys will tell you what you want to hear just to keep the money coming in, not Jamie. If you need an attorney that will be your biggest advocate, he’s your man. I can’t say enough great things about him, he has truly been a blessing to me and my family throughout what has been the hardest time in our lives. The legal system can be arduous, unfair at times and very confusing, but with a great attorney by your side you can be confident that you will make it out the other side. I will forever be grateful for having found Mr. Sutton and choosing him as my teammate.

Excellent Counsel
Jamie Sutton guided me through the process to obtain legal guardianship for a family member. He has walked me through every step of the process, and I am highly confident in his expertise in this area as an attorney. He is knowledgeable, reliable, and courteous. In addition, he has been very patient, kind and sensitive to our family as we have gone through this difficult process. He has exceeded my expectations for legal counsel, and I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend Jamie Sutton for legal counsel.

So smart you barely need to be conscious.
In the interest of full disclosure, I want to say upfront that I do have a personal relationship with Mr. Sutton. We have been friends since we were undergraduates together at our alma mater. I hired Mr. Sutton to help me with an ancestry and Irish citizenship matter. I was a little nervous, anticipating many bureaucratic hurdles and endless piles of paperwork. Lucky for me, the paperwork seemed to be mostly taken care of on Mr. Sutton‘s end. I have barely had to do anything other than ask questions and occasionally review and sign documents. Mr. Sutton, on the other hand, has kept me apprised of the ongoing actions within the process, gave me realistic expectations for what the process would be like, and continues to help me understand tangential legal issues. He excels at explaining a legal situation and possible solutions or outcomes (though he is really not a big fan of ‘what if’ questions. I guess most lawyers aren’t). He is also particularly gifted at strategic thinking and maintaining his calm collected rationale. Which is particularly great if you’re like me and have an aggressive form of anxiety that is constantly worrying. He is clearly intelligent, which you notice pretty much right away, and it is a huge relief to have someone this smart in my corner helping me navigate through what can be a truly Byzantine process. Do yourself a favor. Hire him.
