  • Mark Sutton had all of the charges dropped! If you are like me and don’t know where to go, come talk to Mark Sutton.

    “I usually don’t write testimonials, but in this case I had to make an exception. Echoing a previous testimony, I agree. Hiring Mark Sutton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I had been charged with a DUI. I dreaded going to court without an attorney. It was a very stressful time. Not really knowing what to do, I did what most of us would do. I went online and pick one, Sutton and Janelle, and you know something? Mark Sutton had all of the charges dropped! If you are like me and don’t know where to go, come talk to Mark Sutton. I’m glad I did and you will be too.”

  • Sutton & Janelle helped me overcome my anxieties in divorce with superb competence and consideration of my personal needs

    “I have never needed an attorney my entire life until divorce. It’s a stressful time and challenging enough with a family break up and then understanding the legal aspects. I consulted with three diffferent firms before meeting Franks Aliveto of Sutton & Janelle. Frank put me ease with his confidence and commitment to my case and exceeded my expectations with a very genuine approach from start to finish. The entire administrative (Darla, Len, ands Jami) staff at Sutton & Janelle were likewise extremely professional, courteous and very attentive with each phone call, email, and impromptu visits at the office. I’m a 20 years active duty in the military and the unwavering staff functioning at Sutton & Janelle was superior by all standards.”

    Ben

  • Strong leadership and well-rounded background, Sutton & Janelle earned my highest recommnedation as attorneys at law to the public.

    “I interviewed two different law firms before deciding to hire Sutton & Janelle. Mr. Frank Aliveto's initial consultation prompted my decision as his level of professionalism, competence and consideration of my personal well-being eased my anxieties of a spousal divorce. During the course of my divorce proceedings, Mr. Aliveto kept me appraised with routine phone discussions and meetings; addressing all my personal and professional needs and ensuring there was never any ambiguity in drafted court dockets. I had on numerous occasions made impromptu phone calls for clarification and Mr. Aliveto always returned my call, many times after hours. I am active duty military of 20 YEARS and truly appreciate his active leadership in leaning forward, and far exceeding my expectations. Furthermore, I must compliment the staff functioning at Sutton & Janelle as the administrative staff (Len, Darla, and Jami) always greeted me with smiles and treated with same level of courtesy and professionalism. I highly recommend Sutton & Janelle as attorneys at law to the public, and will certainly seek their services again.”

    Ben

  • Love Chris and his staff! Very welcoming, helpful and friendly!

    “Chris Janelle has represented me through a divorce and a custody modification. Feeling comfortable and someone that I could trust were very important to me. Chris Janelle and his office staff were perfect. Chris is professional, knowledgable, easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. The ladies in the office are always very friendly and helpful. They keep you informed of what's happening with your case and answer any questions quickly and honestly. I will use Chris Janelle for any future needs and have recommended him to friends as well. He's great!”

    Bree

  • I understood everything that was going to happen through thorough explanation from Mark.

    “I hired Mark Sutton to handle my DUI case. Best decision I made for the circumstances. I was originally given a court appointed attorney and I am glad I decided to speak with Mark. He handled everything from the beginning to the end. I understood everything that was going to happen through thorough explanation from Mark. I would have had to handle all this my myself if I had a court appointed attorney. Mark explained the whole process and eased my mind. If I ever need a Criminal Defense Attorney again, I would definitely retain Mark Sutton.”

    Sharon

  • Frank is a total professional. If I need a lawyer in the future I will be using Sutton & Janelle.

    “Frank Aliveto, I couldn't be more grateful to him for working with me to resolve both of my cases. I definitely had the better lawyer each time we were in the court room. Frank is a total professional. If I need a lawyer in the future I will be using Sutton & Janelle. Thanks again for all your hard work.”

    Timothy W.

  • No matter what changes there have been in our lives or in business (and there have been numerous!), all we need do is pick up the phone.

    “Moving to WV in 2000, we hired Sutton & Janelle, initially, for changes to our wills and also for business advice. That was the start of a great professional relationship! No matter what changes there have been in our lives or in business (and there have been numerous!), all we need do is pick up the phone; not only is every issue addressed promptly but it is cleared up quickly without spending a fortune! I would recommend Mark and the rest of the team because, to me, trust is paramount- you can really trust them to be there for you, your family & your business-looking out for your best interests!”

    Renee A.

  • In two separate cases, Mark well exceeded my hopes in one and met them in another.

    “If you want wood-paneled office walls, posh client accommodations, and sky-high fees to help pay for those and other unnecessary things, Mark Sutton and his office are not for you. On the other hand, if, as I did, you want an able, experienced attorney who knows the people who need to be known in the court system and who seeks not just good but the best results, then Mark Sutton is your guy. In two separate cases, Mark well exceeded my hopes in one and met them in another. I could not have asked for more in terms of his getting things done and keeping the client's interest foremost.”

    James

  • His office staff was professional and polite and provided timely correspondence on very important Hearing dates.

    “I could not have hired a better attorney for my case. During my first consultation with Mr. Sutton he explained every aspect of the charges brought against me and shared his knowledge of handling similar cases. That gave me some hope. His office staff was professional and polite and provided timely correspondence on very important Hearing dates. Ultimately, his 20+ years of experience as a criminal defense attorney gave me the legal standing I needed to have my case dismissed, and more importantly, that saved my job! I can see why he is highly respected in the legal community. I highly recommend him to my friends and family. If you value your freedom and your job, then you definitely want Mark Sutton on your side.”

    Former Client

  • Charges dismissed

    “I give Mr Sutton 5 star rating. He had me charges dismissed couldn’t be any happier.”

  • Top Notch Service!!

    “Chris Janelle was there for our family when we needed him. Very professional inside and outside the courtroom, knows the law and handled our case with nothing short of excellence. During our consult, he informed us how the hearing would most likely go. Come hearing date, he executed every step with confidence and professionalism, with outstanding results. Followed just like a playbook. He eased our minds and even met with us unannounced. We pray not to have to go to family court again, but if we ever do, we will have Chris Janelle on speed dial! From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you Mr. Janelle.”

  • Your choice of counsel is one of the most important decisions that you face when establishing your defense.

    “Retained Mark Sutton on two separate occasions once in Berkeley and again in Morgan County. Mark arrived well before I did, entered into negotiations, and promptly disposed of both concerns with results that exceeded my expectations. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found local counsel of such caliber. Your choice of counsel is one of the most important decisions that you face when establishing your defense. There are a lot of attorneys to choose from and it is very hard to ascertain which ones possess the requisite experience and skill to give you not just adequate but exceptional representation. If you need help, now is not the time to pick a name out of the phone book or base your decision on finances. Trust me, he is definitely in your corner.”

    Former Client

Divorce and custody battles are never easy but Chris Janelle and his legal assistant Len kept me informed and helped me all the way through.
