About Sutton Law Firm

Debra J. Sutton is Board Certified in the areas of Appellate Practice (since 1997) and Marital and Family Law (since 2001) by the Florida Bar. Only Six (6) percent of eligible Florida Bar members are Board Certified. Board Certification recognizes an attorney's special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice. Board Certified lawyers are evaluated for professionalism and tested for expertise. Certification is The Florida Bar's highest level of evaluation of the competency and experience of attorneys in the 24 areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida.

After receiving her degree in psychology, Debra attended Stetson University College of Law and received her Juris Doctor with Honors in 1989. She represented Stetson on its Moot Court Board, was a Dana Scholar and on the Dean's list, was President of the Trial Advocacy Society, and was Vice Justice of the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity. Debra was named in Who's Who Among American Law Students. In 2005, Ms. Sutton was appointed to Stetson's Alumni Advisory Board.

Upon graduation from Stetson, Debra became a staff attorney to Judge John M. Scheb at the Second District Court of Appeal. After her service there, she opened her private practice in 1990 in Bartow. Not long afterward, she was listed in Who's Who Among Rising Young Americans. Ms. Sutton has successfully argued cases before appellate courts, has tried cases before juries in county and circuit court, and has tried numerous complex custody and family law cases. In 1997, she was sworn in as a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court. In 1999, Debra was certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a Family Law mediator. She was named an Honorary Master of the Willson American Inn of Court in 2001 for her many years of service to the Inn.
