The Best Attorney In Waco
I have worked with some other attorneys in the past on some different legal issues that I needed handled. I have since learned my lesson. Once I met and hired Seth Sutton I have been nothing but impressed. He took charge of a case for me that I thought was a lost cause, and he took the bull by the horns and turned around a situation that I thought could not be fixed. He actually cared about me and my situation. He took the time to get to know me and my son and actually cared what happened to my son, he kept us very informed and updated at all times and when it came time to go to court, I could not believe the out come. He blew me away, the out come for my son was wonderful and Seth actually became my sons friend and my son has since after meeting Seth is doing much better and has a positive out look on life. If you are looking for an attorney that really cares about you and your case and not just your wallet, then I suggest you hire Seth Sutton. I will never use another law firm ever again. I trust him 100%, and he proved he was the best when we went to court.

Worst choice ever in my life! Avoid him!
I hired him to do legal defense, yet it turned out to be the worst decision in my life. He attended two of my hearings, the first one he attended the hearing 15 minutes late. For the second hearing it actually last roughly 18 to 20 minutes. However, he was trying to charge me it for 30 minutes, until I pointed out the timing issue. He never replied my email or phone call in time. There was one time I had some new evidence came up and I was hoping that he could help me to check whether these evidence could be helpful to my case. I tried to contact him multiple times in a time span of 10 days, but failed, he never answered my call nor my email. After more than two weeks, he finally let me know that he was ill... This guys is truely unprofessional, just avoid him.

Worst decision of my life
If you reading this please don’t every go to Seth when I walked in the door he played me like a whistle. I’m all for the justice system and being fair and I take full responsibility for my actions. I paid Seth 2,500 dollars and he didn’t do a damn thing to help my case. After a whole year and a half of waiting on a court date I was scheduled to appear in court I had a meeting with Seth. He didn’t have the Original pullover type or anything to show we had a chance to win my case all he had was the DA information and told me it’s in my best interest to take probation. This was my first time ever being charged with a crime and I’m 30 years old now. Save yourself the trouble never go to this office I would’ve been better of with a Public defender the original charge was dwi and Possession under 2 ounces. I just took a plea deal today and ended up with a 100 hrs of community service and 3 Mandatory classes or drug and alcohol awareness. But wait this the best part when I was pulled over I never got a Breathalyzer on site they took me straight to jail every in my blood I didn’t have any alcohol in my system I tested for positive for THC. It’s bad enough you get Rail road by the system but you hire a lawyer to defend you and he doesn’t even Attempt to do his job. But I guess that’s how it goes I’ll never make a Impulsive decision like this again please do research before hiring any attorney

Big Regret
Got hung out to dry. Did nothing to prepare for my case. Lied and sold me on bad plea on case that was a easy win! If just did what paid to do? But helps destroy a persons life that was undeserved in any way. Clearly cared less about it after!

His trial skills are well above average and I would not hesitate to hire him for a trial. His easygoing demeanor also assists him in getting great plea deals for his clients. You can't go wrong hiring Seth for your case."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. When I needed a speaker for a North Texas DWI seminar, I kept hearing about Seth. I was expecting great things but Seth took it to a whole different level. I was completely blown away by his presentation. His jury selection video demonstrates that Seth could have a great career in filmmaking. I enthusiastically endorse this fine lawyer."
DUI and DWI Attorney | May 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Seth is intelligent, well respected and one heck of a trial attorney."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had watched Seth Sutton in the courtroom some years back from a distance and was immediately impressed with his manner, professionalism and results in the courtroom. I ran into Seth again when we were both presenting at a DWI seminar for Texas DWI attorneys. I was blown away by Seth's presentation, both in his materials and performance on the big stage. Since that seminar Seth and I have exchanged trial strategies and bounced ideas off each other. I can tell you that he develops cutting edge ideas and techniques to merge with juries like I haven't seen in years. I refer Waco area clients to Seth because I know that my reputation is enhanced by the job he performs for those clients. Without a doubt, Seth Sutton is my "go to guy" in the Waco area. Do yourself right and give Seth a call for any criminal matter and tell him the DWI Dude sent you. Respectfully, Jamie Balagia"
Criminal defense Attorney | May 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Seth is an outstanding attorney who brings the full force of his abilities to every case. He's great to work with. You'd be fortunate to have him take your case."
