“Jeremy and staff were extremely helpful in communicating family court process and best steps and time­frames to achieve as harmonious as possible result. I found his advice and performance very helpful during this transition period which can obviously be stressful and a period of change for most people. Some of the key benefits in dealing with Jeremy Sutton and his excellent associated staff were the prior planning of court procedures and preparation of information required. I am based in Tauranga and chose to source Jeremy’s expertise although his practice being based in Auckland. Communication in all aspects was excellent and Jeremy’s no nonsense and practical court performance while appearing on my behalf was of the highest caliber and we achieved the results that we aimed for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy and his supporting solicitors for any family court matters.”

As a recently separated Dad, Jeremy put my mind at ease regarding process and expected outcomes. His style was refreshing – empathetic, direct, focused on my priorities and importantly, astute. Communication is important to me and he exceeded my expectations in terms of clarity, frequency and availability. Very experienced and provided extremely sound counsel. Highly recommended.

Jeremy was my second opinion and was recommended by a friend. I arrived at his door teary and desperate. To be frank I’d had enough of legal beagles. However, I found Jeremy and his team’s straight talking no­nonsense approach to be a little hard to swallow, yet just what was required to get the right advice and make informed decisions. I was represented twice (Property Act and Protection Order); both outcomes exceeded expectations although bitter sweet if you know what I mean. I would like to thank the Team at Jeremy Sutton for their efforts and hard work, and would highly recommend their service to anyone seeking Legal Services.

I met with Jeremy while supporting someone through a separation. Jeremy was clear and gave us a sense of confidence in how to approach what is an emotional and complex process. What I liked most was Jeremy’s direct and sincere approach. It was clear that he likes to work with urgency for an outcome avoiding the need for a drawn­out, costly process. This was one of our biggest fears and we definitely got the feeling that Jeremy’s sole focus was doing the best thing possible by his customer. He also clearly knows what he’s talking about!

“As a Youth Justice Coordinator for the Ministry of Social Development, I have known Jeremy Sutton for a period of eight years during his time working as a Youth Advocate (lawyer) in the Youth Court and a counsel for child in the Family Court. The cases that Jeremy and I were involved with were pretty challenging and quite complex. I can attest that despite the challenging nature of these cases, Jeremy has always manifested a cool, calm approach which I believe is an essential value that one needs to have when working in such circumstances. Jeremy is also someone who knows his work very well and is committed to advocating for his clients when working as a Youth Advocate and Counsel for child.”
