The Law Office of J. Patrick Sutton in Austin, Texas is a civil litigation practice emphasizing real estate litigation, collections, and civil appeals.
• Most of the practice's real estate litigation involves representing homeowners in cases of HOA abuse and fighting banks over foreclosures and mortgage loan abuse. I discuss my practice and philosophy in real estate matters in more detail HERE.
• I handle all aspects of residential real estate transactions for buyers and sellers, whether brokers are involved or not. Many people hire me in cases where they haven't hired a broker because they have already found the property they want to buy, or else they already have a buyer for their property. I handle FSBO's as well.
• The collections practice is both creditor and debtor side, emphasizing creative approaches to collecting. However, Mr. Sutton does not represent financial institutions in suits against consumers. The collections practice is generally business-on-business, or else small-business against customer. Mr. Sutton also serves as a Texas turnover statute receiver.
• I also handle state and federal civil appeals, including briefing and oral argument. I have argued before the Texas Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. I have also represented clients seeking review in the U.S. Supreme Court.
