Seth Andrew Sutton is an entertainer by nature. He spent several years in New York City after college performing in bands and pursuing a musical theater career. However, the transition into practicing law has been incredibly smooth and natural.

"I love trial," explains Sutton. "Being half performer and half sports fan...trial is like competitive theater. There's nothing better!" he jokes. "But in all seriousness, my vast experience of breaking down scripts and finding the truth and the emotion have proved to be excellent preparation for defending my clients. The story of the case is my script and the jury is my audience. I connect with them and I don't miss the 'moments'." And the results have shown. Sutton has tried and won as many criminal trials in McLennan County as anyone over the past few years.

Always looking for innovative ways to improve his trial advocacy, Sutton is now part of the TCDLA (Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association) statewide DWI faculty, teaching other Texas lawyers on topics such as Jury Selection and Cross Examination in DWI's.

Sutton has also been recognized for successfully drawing upon his own experiences in creating "out-of-the-box" trial strategies for his clients. This has also turned into two more popular seminars that he gives at legal conferences: "Theater in the Courtroom" and "Utilizing Presentation Software Technology During Your Trial."

Sutton graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Telecommunications from Texas Tech University in 1996 before attending Baylor Law School where he received his Doctorate of Jurisprudence. He spent a brief stint in Las Vegas, NV practicing federal criminal law before returning home in 2006 to begin defending Texans.

Seth is the proud father of four strapping young boys: Isaac Andrew, Noah Gabriel, Asa Owen and Jonah Wayne.

Seth was very professional and honest about my case and possible outcomes. He was exceptionally knowledgeable about the case and court proceedings. His staff was extremely helpful with all the particulars and were always quick to answer any questions and concerns I had regarding my case no matter how inconsequential they might have been. Leah was especially helpful with all matters, and always helped with any questions I had. Very efficient and it meant a lot to me to feel like my case mattered and was important.

My experience with Seth as my lawyer went as well as one could hope. The firm kept me up to date on the status of everything, helped me through the stages of my case, and ultimately got my charges reduced significantly. It is a long process, but with the help of this law firm and doing what they asked of me, it kept a big mistake from being on my record. Everyone here was very pleasant to interact with, I am glad to see the firm growing.

After my sons arrest I decided that Seth was the most knowledgeable, professional, pull no punches lawyer I was comfortable with. He doesn't treat you like the "next one in line" even though his case load is pretty big. He listens and thoroughly explains everything whether it is good or bad. End result was, probation for one felony charge and full dismissal of second felony charge. I hope to never have to use his services again but keep his card for anyone I know who may need solid representation. I HIGHLY recommend Seth Sutton.
