I highly recommend James Sullivan. Unlike other attorneys, he was very kind answering all the questions I had. He was available to talk when I had questions and answered the phone calls/email in time. He did a great job dismissing the minor in possession case. The judge knew him and he was very familiar with court clerks. Very helpful.

With great skill, knowledge, confidence and the utmost integrity, Mr. Sullivan was able to help me navigate a very stressful and difficult time. He worked diligently to defend my DUI case and ultimately he was able to reach the best possible resolution. Mr. Sullivan was attentive, accessible, patient and reassuring throughout the entire process.
Mr. Sullivan not only has a great understanding of the law, he also understands the local legal environment and Atlanta’s judicial system. The day after my arrest I contacted Mr. Sullivan and he worked with me over the next two years, eager to answer my questions, explain my defense strategy and prove my innocence.
I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan, he is a very capable attorney who fights for, and believes in his clients.

I contacted Mr. Sullivan (Skip) the day after my DUI arrest. From the first conversation Skip was informative and understanding with my situation. All communication throughout the process was handled professionally and in a timely manner.
He moved the case from Roswell to the Fulton County Courthouse as he felt it was our best shot at receiving an acquittal. I had several miscues on my DUI video that could have potentially resulted in a conviction. (I messed up the alphabet - badly, that was just one issue on my video there were others). I thought for sure this would result in a guilty verdict, who wouldn't?
Skip was a superstar in court and was able to focus on enough "positives" contained in the video to come away with a not guilty verdict on both the DUI charge and the failure to maintain lane.
I would highly recommend Mr. Sullivan for DUI defense. He understands the process, the laws and also has knowledge about the local prosecutors, judges and police officers as well. Do yourself a favor and call Skip!

Skip will fight hard for you and he will not be afraid to take your case to trial if that is the best option. If you hire him, not only will you receive the benefit of his extensive legal knowledge, but his entire firm often meets together to discuss the the best possible defense for each case. Don't think twice about hiring him. It will be well worth your money.
