Summary

I’m Stewart A. Sutton and I have been practicing law in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and California for over 25 years. I am a general practitioner, who helps individuals, families, employees, entrepreneurs, and small businesses solve their ordinary and sometimes extraordinary legal problems. My areas of practice include: family law; business law; personal injury; civil rights; wills and trusts; legal malpractice, real estate litigation, and appeals. I limit my practice to representing no more than a dozen litigation clients at a time. My philosophy is to provide the highest quality legal representation to a small number of clients, instead of providing average quality legal representation to a large number of clients. The quality of my representation is further enhanced by the fact that my clients have direct access to me, because I personally handle all communications. By working closely with my clients, I can expedite the resolution of their cases.
