    What People are Saying about Sutkus Law Firm


    “I’ve been recommending Laura Sutkus ever since my divorce finalized several years ago. During what proved to be an exceptionally long and difficult divorce, it was incredibly reassuring to work with someone so well-respected by her peers, and so committed to my case.

    Unbundled Service? Highly recommend Sutkus Law Firm! When I was referred to Laura Sutkus, I used the unbundled service at first, then full representation for trial. I was very impressed with the professionalism as well as the humanitarian side of this law firm… [Read More]

    I hired Laura to work collaboratively with me, my ex-husband and his (also collaboratively trained)
    lawyer. Both my ex and I are so pleased we did. Ours was a bit of an unusual case in that we wanted to divorce but also continue to own and operate two businesses together as well as to keep extended family relationships active. Laura listened closely to what I wanted to achieve individually and together with my ex. She was organized, efficient, respectful, kind, dependable, responsive, open-minded and is quite obviously well versed in her knowledge of divorce law.
