Great Juvenile Lawyer
Posted by: a Juvenile client, 5 months ago.
When I needed a lawyer to defend my teenage son who was charged with a felony sex offense, it was a stroke of luck that Jim Sullivan answered his phone when I called. My husband and I were frantic, worried and confused, but Jim answered our questions and we were especially reassured to know that not only did he have many years of experience with similar cases but that he was also Board Certified in Juvenile Law. Like many families who understandably go through a harrowing ordeal when their teenagers face serious criminal charges, Jim's dedicated and competent representation gave us a good comfort level and eased our fears. He always treated us courteously and professionally. Because Jim is intelligent, open-minded and competitive, he has proved to be a great lawyer who represented my son to the best of his ability and negotiated a deal with the prosecutor to reduce the felony charge to a misdemeanor assault--an extraordinary result for my son. In two years, my son can get his juvenile record expunged and then apply for admission to a top university. Jim Sullivan is a genuinely good man who really cares about the case result and how it will affect his clients' future life, so he aims to secure decisions in their best interests and for that we are truly grateful. ~Concerned Mom in Fort Bend County
An Attorney That Cares
Posted by: a client, 5 months ago.
I recently called Jim Sullivan when our young adult son had been arrested, in hopes of consulting with an attorney who would give us sound legal opinion from a Catholic Christian perspective. Mr. Sullivan spent time with me and explained the legalities of our son's situation, even looking up court documents and contact information on our son's court appointed lawyer. It became clear, in speaking to Mr. Sullivan that practicing law is not just his career, it is his vocation. In particular, I understood that Jim Sullivan is driven to help troubled adolescents avoid entanglements with the legal system that can eventually have enduring consequences. I believe Mr. Sullivan to be a conscientious, principled and trustworthy attorney. - A concerned Cypress Mom
Jim Sullivan - Super Lawyer
Posted by: a Criminal Defense client, 6 months ago.
I cannot thank you enough for your help with my case in Montgomery county. It was a very serious accusation against me. My teenage nephew falsely accused me of molesting him. You took our initial call on a weekend and assured us then that everything would turn out fine. You explained that it was very important for a good attorney to get involved before indictment because you believed a good defense attorney could get the case no billed by the grand jury. And, that's exactly what you did. You are very talented and professional at what you do. I cannot thank you enough for standing beside me, believing in me and and most importantly, your confidence. You are truly a super lawyer. ~K.M.

I was so blessed to have met James Sullivan. His values, ethics and professionalism made us win the case for one of my Contractors. As recommended by him, the case was impeccably argued before the Grand Jury and it was no billed. Given his track record, I have now taken the liberty of calling him "The King of NO-BILLED" Thank you so much for your help. God Bless you!
Thank You Jim Sullivan for Getting the Motion to Adjudicate Guilt Dismissed on the First Setting so that I Could Get Out of Jail
Posted by: kelvin, a Criminal Defense client, 8 months ago.
I want to thank Attorney Jim Sullivan for helping me with my case. I had a probation violation on an Assault Family Violence case in Criminal District Court which resulted in jail time. Mr. Sullivan represented me and, even though my probation officer recommended revocation, he managed to get the Motion to Adjudicate Guilt dismissed on the first setting and I was released from jail later that night. The terms of my probation included that I not have contact with my wife until completion of my BIPP counseling sessions which were for 18 weeks. My probation officer claimed that I violated my probation by returning to my house and that was false. Mr. Sullivan interviewed my mother and my wife about what really happened and then proved to the prosecutors and the probation department representative that I did not break the rules and that I should be released back to probation so that I could keep my job to provide for my children. He thoroughly prepared for the first court setting and I am very grateful for him for going above and beyond in helping my case and would recommend him to anyone who needs not only an experienced criminal defense attorney but also an attorney who treats you like a real friend. So, with that being said, thank you Jim Sullivan for an outstanding job.
Why I Recommend You Choose Jim Sullivan to be Your Attorney ~ An ordinary Mother and Citizen
Posted by: Brenda, a Criminal Defense client, 8 months ago.
I recently realized I was going to be charged with a crime and set out to find a reputable attorney. I had searched the internet and read his background, history and experience and decided to call Mr. Sullivan to see if he would be the one I would want to represent me. I was pleasantly surprised that yes, he does answer his own phone :) The time and care he took to to listen even before hiring him was amazing. He is not just a lawyer out to make money even though this is his professional career. He is well worth hiring and worth every bit of what he charges. I found him to be reputable , ready and capable to move forward with my case. It is not everyday that you have to put yourself into somebody elses hands and let them seek justice or defend you. I am a mother,grandmother just your average, everyday person. I know using the internet and choosing someone to represent you is a huge decision. There are many lawyers out there and I am happy to have found one that truly has a heart and is credible and known in the court. It is also important that he has trial experience. He was able to help me even before it got that far ,but was prepared to move forward if necessary. This is a plus because as you may or may not know, not all attorneys also have trial experience which is important to consider when being charged with a crime. This is how I came to know Mr. Jim Sullivan. I urge you if your in need of an attorney. He is definitely the one you want fighting for you. I highly recommend him.
Best Defense Lawyer in Houston!

Best Defense Attorney in Houston, Jim Sullivan! You won t go wrong hiring this lawyer. I m very thankful, I did. Gettting a bond outta jail, my mother and friend gave me 5 lawyers to call. He was the first on the list, which they also thought was a good man to work with. He stood out with his reasonable prices, down to earth speaking, and witty humor. He explained exactly what would be the best outcome and the process in detail. He was polite and answered all my questions I had. Being the first time being locked up I was a little nervous and prayed a lot. Jim had a lot of confidence my case would be dismissed. a couple months later, he was right. All charges were dismissed. If you re looking for a Defense Attorney, who stands behind his word, and fights hard for you when you need it the most. Contact Jim, I highly recommend him.
Jim Sullivan Saved My Life. He is Awesome.
Posted by: Demonisha, a Criminal Defense client, 11 months ago.
Jim Sullivan saved my life. I had never been in trouble before. I am a single mom with three kids. A neighbor’s boy, an 11 year old bully, beat up my 9 year old son. My 10 year old son then went outside and gave the bully a black eye. The bully ran home and told his momma that I had hit him. His momma came over and attacked me. The next day that woman called the police and I got arrested for a felony, Injury to a Child. I spent 2 weeks in jail for something I didn’t do before my momma got enough money together to pay the bondsman. Before Jim Sullivan defended me, I was afraid. I thought the best I could get was probation. I just don’t trust the law. I’ve seen too many people go to trial, lose and get a lot of prison time. But Jim believed in me. When we first went to court, Jim told me the government was offering me deferred adjudication on the felony, but he said that I shouldn’t take it. Jim told me he would fight my case all the way to trial and that there was no way he was gonna let me plead guilty when I was innocent. Over the next few months, he worked on my case. He came to my neighborhood and spent many hours talking to witnesses. On my first trial setting, Jim told me that the government was now offering me a better deal--deferred adjudication on a misdemeanor assault, but Jim told me that I should not take it because I was not guilty of that either. He was sure he would win my case at trial and I believed him. Over 6 months, we went to court 10 different times. Finally, on my third trial setting, the government dismissed my case! I thank God that Jim was my attorney. He truly cared about me and my family. I cannot thank him enough. Because of him, I still have a clean record and I can still work to support my kids.
Thank you Mr. Sullivan for representing our son, your knowledge of juvenile law and understanding of teenagers is unquestionable

Jim Sullivan helped our son and family through a very difficult time. On a Friday evening in February 2012, our son was handcuffed and taken from our home for detainment at the Juvenile facility (Fort Bend County) on a class 3 Felony charge of stalking. We were informed that we would not be able to see him until visiting hours Monday. Our lives had been turned upside down and our son’s support system (his family) had been ripped out from under him. My husband, who is lawyer, immediately began researching Houston area juvenile attorneys. Based on Jim’s profile and qualifications, my husband called him late Friday evening. Jim answered the phone and arranged to meet us at the Juvenile Detention Facility early Saturday afternoon. Jim connected with our son immediately. It was apparent he cared about him as a whole person, not just the kid who suddenly found himself in trouble. He was more than just a lawyer to my son. He shared his own experiences and his positive attitude about life and relationships. Jim is not only a good lawyer but a good role model for our children. The Felony charge did not stick and we are thankful for Jim’s help and counsel. Anonymous from Fort Bend County

Mr. Sullivan is a great lawyer. He got my son's case no billed after a false charge. I knew my son was innocent & Mr. Sullivan proved that in his packet, to the Grand Jury! Thank you Mr. Sullivan for all your hard work & dedication to the case!
