"After receiving the run around or no contact at all from several attorneys, I was finally in good hands with Mark Sutton as he promptly returned my initial as well as subsequent calls. From the helpful office staff to the effective legal advice, I can wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Sutton as well as his law firm. He was knowledgeable, professional, accessible and timely. The fact that he was reasonably priced and was able to get my whole case dismissed was an added bonus."

"I had the pleasure to have Sutton & Janelle represent me in family court and with my husbands expungement. Frank Aliveto represented me during my child custody case, he was always professional and extremely honest during the entire process.. in the end we won! Mark Sutton did my husbands expungement and when he said he could get it done fast, he meant it!! From the time I hired him to the approval from the courts only took 11 days!!!! Thank you, I will always recommend these attorneys!"
