A few years ago my 20 year old son was charged with a Class X felony and was looking at serving major time. I had my son retain Mark Sutter based on prior relationship and recommendations.
Mark was truly amazing, this was a very complex case with multiple hearings and appeals. The prosecuting attorneys were initially focused on racking up an "easy win" with a slam dunk confession and were going to "do us a favor" by offering 12 years under a class X felony, which would have destroyed our son's life. Well, they didn't factor in Mark's determination to achieve a better outcome for my son, and it turned out the win wasn't so easy.
Throughout the process, Mark never gave up, never gave an inch, kept fighting, and was totally focused on achieving an outcome that would enable my son to continue his life. After almost two years of very hard work and Mark leveraging all of his prior contacts when he was a prosecutor, it paid off, Mark was able to negotiate boot camp for my son. Which is unheard of for a Class X felony.
We made the right choice to trust our son's life to Mark - and highly recommend him. Mark has the deep experience, relationships, and most of all the heart to make sure you get the right and fair outcome.
Note; Today my son is straight, and graduating from a university with several good job offers.

I've had the liberty to have Mark Sutter represent me as my Attorney. I've worked with some Attorney's in the past but never felt so at ease as I have with Mark. It was never about the money with Mark, and not only did he have our best interest at heart his firm made us feel like family. Mark Sutter is a clean cut no chaser type of lawyer. Mark Sutter is very professional, very informative, very caring and concerned about his clients. I totally value his opinion and I put my trust in him beyond 100%. So if there's ever an Attorney I want to represent me it would have to be none other than Mark Sutter.

I have known Mark professionally for several years and I refer all my friends, family and clients with PI, Criminal Defense and DUI issues to him. Everyone I send his way tells me he is amazing. His associates are also top notch and Mark stays involved even when he assigns a case to one of them. Mark also shoots straight when a client has a bad case and he can't help. Easiest endorsement I ever made.
