Felony And Misdemeanor Criminal Defense For South Miami

"We are married together. As your lawyer, you'll be able to find me day or night. Call me at midnight and I'll answer."-John R. Sutton

Did Police Follow Proper Protocol? We Can Find Out

Getting arrested, facing charges or simply being interviewed by the police can be unbelievably traumatic and frightening—particularly for those who may not be familiar with the legal system.

It's possible police illegally searched your car or home. It's possible authorities failed to properly read you Miranda rights. There are many defenses available and only a seasoned criminal defense attorney will know whether they are applicable to your situation.

At Sutton Law Group, P.A., our attorneys know the law, the procedures police must follow and the constitutional rights afforded to you under the United States Constitution. We also frequently work with investigators and experienced professionals—all in an effort to vigorously defend against your charges.

  • DUI

We Handle Appeals

Whether it is ineffective counsel, or a procedural error or mistake that occurred during your trial, a conviction can get overturned on appeal for a number of reasons. At Sutton Law Group, P.A., we have experience handling appeals for many different circumstances.

A Success Story

In one case, our firm handled the appeal of an individual convicted of cocaine smuggling. Our lead attorney, John R. Sutton, argued that there was an arbitrary exclusion of African Americans from the jury panel. The conviction was reversed and remanded for a new trial. The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy trial. The speedy trial period expired, and the individual was never subsequently convicted or retried for the charges.
