Overwhelmed with shock and dismay I felt helpless as the mound of lawyer letters grew to thirty. I knew that I needed help but had no knowledge of the law. That’s when my girlfriend opened up her lap top. After a few days of research and reading reviews she said, “I think this is your guy.” She pointed to the 10.0 rated AVVO profile of Timothy Sullivan. Since many of the lawyers had a 10.0 rating I decided to dig deeper. I read a lot of information. Overall what people had said about Tim seemed more genuine than the others. After spending long questioning sessions at different law firms we realized the clear choice.
Having to see in writing that it was “me vs. the state” I imagined 20 million residents against me alone. It was not people that I was fighting, it was a machine. Just as Mr. Sullivan knew that confounded breathalyzer inside and out, he also knew the judicial system machine. He encouraged that system to give me justice by exposing its imperfections.
The officer and prosecutor can get it wrong and even a judge can make a mistake. You need a lawyer with experience, logic, and common sense so that they can make sure that you are not steam-rolled by injustice. Tim knew where the prosecutor had been and knew where he was going. Mr. Sullivan was honest, capable, and not afraid to stand up in the court room to unravel every twist and turn thrown by the opposition.
Past offences, refusal to blow; none of that matters. Be relentless, fight; it’s a long process and believe in Tim while he builds your case. Do not give up. It took an overzealous police officer to put me on this path but I fought back; evidence suppressed, case closed, because of Tim Sullivan and Russo & Russo. This is your guy.
The exceptional supporting office staff played an invaluable role as well.

Tim Sullivan did an excellent job of getting my case dismissed. His knowledge of law is incredible– always up to date on current laws and familiar with previous cases that were successful and applicable to my case. He took his time explaining all the options available to me, made sure I understood them, (understanding all the legalese can be confusing) and then suggested the best route based on his experience. He made me feel confident and assured. Tim was always available and prompt when I needed to speak with him. He is upfront, courteous and down to earth. His staff is friendly and very helpful as well. I am thrilled with my outcome and I owe it all to Tim Sullivan. I not only consider him a lawyer, but also a friend. You can trust him 100%! Thank you!

Mr. Sullivan helped my daughter with a traffic and probation situation that happened in FL while she was living there a few years ago. She never cleared up the incident and moved from FL to another state. Needless to say, the DMV is all connected and incidents show up at every states DMV. Mr. Sullivan worked with us long distance to clear up my daughter's traffic and probation charge with the FL court. He was reliable and consistent in his communication with us and he is one of the best lawyers I have ever worked with. Thanks Tim!

Tim Sullivan saved me from having a DUI on my record in a case where I had blown well over the legal limit. On the morning of my trial, the state attorneys offered to reduce my DUI charge to Wreckless Driving after witnessing Mr. Sullivan question the Intoxilyzer inspector in front of the judge in order to determine whether or not his testimony would be included in my trial. Before Mr. Sullivan can finish his line of questioning, the judge dismissed the inspector and told the state he's allowing all of the testimony. Mr. Sullivan was on point with his questioning and facts and demonstrated that he knows how the Intoxilyzer device works better than the inspector. Mr. Sullivan was confident and helpful throughout the trying process for me and my family.

When my case began, we all understood it would be a long walk to the finish line. At each step, Mr Sullivan was working for my interests. He presented me with how the case was proceeding, my options, what I hoped to get, and from there I was always able to make a well informed decision. He presented me with all the evidence and accusations, and we developed a long term approach to our case and began to prepare for trial. At each stage, Mr Sullivan was available and positive. Framing the case from the judge's perspective and the state's perspective. I was supplied with all relevant materials pertaining to my case ie depositions, discovery items, etc. Mr Sullivan did an excellent job advocating for my best interests.

There is honestly nothing I can say that would do justice for the work Tim has done for me over the past year. I came to Tim immediately after being charged with a DUI. After sitting in a room with him for a few minutes, I realized he was a trustworthy, knowledgeable person who I wanted to represent me. He genuinely cared about the outcome of my case, and about keeping the cost as low as possible. Throughout the lengthy process, Tim kept in constant communication with me to keep me informed about my case. He was always available to answer my questions and was thorough and timely in his responses to me. After almost a year long battle, Tim was able to get my DUI charge reduced down to Reckless Driving. Without Tim's expert guidance, I would not have gotten to this outcome. I wholeheartedly recommend Tim to anyone looking for a lawyer.

I am from upstate NY (Syracuse) and lived in Clearwater FL for a few years. I had an unresolved DUI in the state of Florida when I returned to NY. After quite a few years I contacted Russo and Russo to help me resolve this matter without returning to Clearwater, FL. Timothy Sullivan is the ONLY lawyer that I have ever met that promised EVERYTHING he said he could do, and then some. I am truly thankful for all that he has done. I highly recommend
this firm to anyone who needs a trustworthy lawyer in their corner.

The services Mr. Sullivan provided for us were truly remarkable. Not only were his prices above and beyond fair. He thought of everything from damage control before the charges were even filed. My son's charge went from being a felony to a misdemeanor. 10 points to be added to his license to no points added. I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan and would definitely use him again.

I had to go to court to fight a dui charge. Mr. Sullivan did an excellent job before the trial preparing, and during the trial itself. He took the time to extensively research the matter, and kept me informed of all parameters associated with this case. We spent a fair amount of time at his office preparing for the trial beforehand, analyzing our options. He was easy to work with in this regard, explaining to me the ins and outs of the matter at hand. I felt that he and his partner, Marc Pelletier, were on the ball for the entire time of our association.

When dealing with something like the charge of DUI, it is not something to take lightly. Being in a different kind of professional services, I know the importance of making sure to take the time to find the right person to work with. After several other meetings with some in town lawyers, Tim was a breath of fresh air. He was direct, open, and honest about the possibilities of the case...I left feeling that I wasn't being sold and that he was the right person to help me through the process.
Fast forward almost a year later, I walked out of the courtroom with the case being dismissed. Over the course of the case, Tim was responsive, kept me informed, and made me feel as comfortable as possible when dealing with this ordeal.
Best advice...don't get into a position to need Tim, but if you do need a lawyer...he's your guy.
