    Our Services

    You choose the services that are right for you -- from mediation or arbitration services, unbundled legal services and legal advice, advocacy and assistance in the collaborative process or other settlement methods, to full representation within a court case. Meet for an initial consultation, so you may choose what works best for you after you learn about your options.

    What People are Saying about Sutkus Law Firm


    Laura Sutkus is an excellent attorney with keen intelligence, integrity, and empathy. I was a stay at home mom with two small children when I hired Laura. She thoroughly explained all my options, listened to my needs, and spent time with me. I could not have ended up where I am today without her diligence and hard work on my behalf. Even years after my divorce, Laura has been there to answer my questions or for follow up help. Laura is an attorney of character and professionalism and she really knows her stuff!

    - Karen Smith

    I can still recall the first time I met Laura Sutkus. My separation came unexpectedly and suddenly. I was shell-shocked, confused, hurt, emotionally drained...so much was happening all at once... I didn't know what to do or where to begin to pick up the pieces. Luckily, I was put in touch with Laura. Laura could sense my anxiety, confusion, emotional pain and frustration. Her confidence, experience, gentle demeanor and honest approach with helping me and my situation was very comforting during the hardest personal trial I've ever had to endure in my life. --Read More by clicking the link below.
