PATRICE A. SULTON

Patrice prides herself on taking a holistic, pragmatic approach to client service. Working to obtain favorable courtroom results is only half the job. The other half is mitigating the personal, professional, and reputational harm that contact with the legal system can cause in an individual’s life. As an extension of her defense practice, Patrice lends her voice to the rising call for criminal justice reform at the local and national levels. She writes and speaks extensively on the topic, and promotes her positions to policymakers and the public as an officer in several renowned advocacy groups and criminal defense attorney professional associations. She also trains law students in trial advocacy.
