Ka-Ching!

If you’re a client of San Francisco attorney Jim Sutton and his rates have just gone up you can thank the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
The story’s off the newsstand today but you can read it on-line for Savannah Blackwell’s assessment of Sutton’s skill defending, defining, and defeating various parts of various elections laws up and down the state. Basically he gets credit for being a really influential guy. As hit pieces go, it’s not bad at all. (I know and like Jim Sutton and am pretty cynical about politics generally, so I was expecting something a bit nastier.) Still, there are lots of great quote from good government types who paint a pretty grim (no matter what your perspective) look at state election law. It doens’t matter which side you’re on, you need a lawyer.
“He is one of a small handful of very influential political law attorneys who typically represent moneyed, influential candidates,” California Common Cause executive director Jim Knox told [Blackwell]. “And he seems to be on something of a crusade right now.”
Yes. Well, the Sutton kids have colleges plans. Bill ‘em, Jimmy.
