Claimed Lawyer Profile

S. Robert Sutton has been engaged in the practice of law since his graduation from the Stanford Law School in 1980. Following his graduation from law school, he went to work at Jenner & Block in Chicago, Illinois, where he obtained his first experience as a litigator, and honed his legal research and writing skills. He worked at Jenner & Block for two years before returning to live in Montgomery County, where he was born and raised and went to work at Steptoe & Johnson, in Washington, D.C., where he continued to develop his research, writing, and litigation skills. In 1985, Mr. Sutton joined Janis, Schuelke & Wechsler, a white collar criminal defense and civil litigation “boutique,” where he was able quickly to assume significant responsibility over a variety of matters. During his twenty-six years with Janis, Schuelke & Wechsler, Mr. Sutton represented hundreds of clients in a variety of matters primarily involving civil and white collar criminal litigation. On the civil side, he has been involved in litigation involving personal injury, allegations of medical malpractice, insurance coverage disputes, business disputes, and disputes involving employment related matters. Mr. Sutton's continued professional development is reflected by the fact that he was admitted to the partnership in 1989, and by the fact that he has consistently maintained an “AV Preeminent” rating: the highest possible rating of General Ethical Standards and Professional Ability, based upon evaluation by other attorneys and members of the judiciary. Mr. Sutton left Janis, Schuelke & Wechsler, and established the Law Office of S. Robert Sutton, so that he might provide his clients with his legal services at more reasonable rates. Mr. Sutton always has prided himself upon his personalized, professional service, attention to detail, and his ability as an effective advocate.
