Google Reviews

My husband and I recently used Jeremy to help with a custody issue from a previous relationship. Jeremy was great to work with, highly skilled and professional, and achieved our desired outcome. Communication was great, especially as we live overseas and had a difficult time difference to work around. Jeremy and his team were fantastic and we highly recommend.


Having a complicated relationship come to an end, I had initially used another law company to undertake my settlement. Unfortunately, this company let me down on many aspects. After spending a considerable amount of money and almost 12 months of back and forth litigation, I had gotten nowhere close to a resolution. I found Jeremy Sutton online and did my due diligence. After engaging with him, I felt much more confident that a solution could be met promptly. Communication was great, and I knew where we were at every stage of the matter. Unlike the first company I used, Jeremy was easily reachable and gave me the clear options I had available. His focus was more on a settlement than litigation, which is what I wanted.
A settlement was reached and I was able to move on with life. Overall a great experience on something that is far from a pleasant situation. I highly recommend using Jeremy Sutton.

Jeremy is an experienced ‘down to earth’ lawyer. He has empathy to your situation and understands your wants and needs. He gives good solid advice with no BS. He drills right down to the issues that mater most. He is easily contactable and always has the end result in sight, even in some cases it can take months to achieve.

Jeremy Sutton is both bright and sympathetic – in other words he gets what is needed and is mindful of the clients needs and considerations. He is a pleasure to work with – his approach is refreshingly quick, positive, and the advice clear and helpful – if only all professionals were like that !
I had the pleasure of interviewing him on the radio and he was impressively open, fast with his ideas and incredibly helpful – any using his professional skills will be blessed with the association – he brings confidence to an otherwise “difficult time!”

I am going through the legalities of separation now. Some of the process has been tricky and has been made longer by the actions of the other party. I feel totally supported working with Jeremy. Jeremy assesses people and situations skillfully, providing expert knowledge and advice in a straightforward way.

Alice Gostelow

I found Jeremy Sutton excellent to work with to support and conclude a complicated separation process I had been working through. Jeremy provided pragmatic and informed advice, was very proactive and always available. Jeremy explained options very carefully and for me a lot of the stress associated with the wider separation was removed knowing I had such good support. Jeremy was respectful of the wider context throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy’s services.

Chris Boalch

A partner of 17yrs decided to end our relationship wanting 50% of assets accumulated by my late wife and I over a period of 30 years married, mainly our family free hold home.
Jeremy and his team were able to get a more realistic settlement with in the terms of the law, saving the family home and other valuable assets.
The relationship law can be extremely unfair and is in need of urgent review.

As a lawyer, I’ve worked with Jeremy on relationship property matters and have always appreciated his pragmatic and honest approach to advising clients, based on his considerable experience.
