Review James Sullivan
  • Highly Recommend - DUI Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    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!

    I cannot recommend Skip Sullivan highly enough. When my son got a DUI, I contacted him on a Sunday afternoon and he responded immediately and spoke with me at length. I subsequently hired him to represent us, and he kept me informed throughout the process and ultimately got the case dismissed. He even followed up with me to let me know how we could retrieve the bond payment. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance. He made a very difficult time much easier than I could have ever imagined.

    Per AVVOs rating categories Trustworthy, Responsive, Knowledgeable, Kept Me Informed I give the Chestney Law Firm all 5 stars. My DUI case lagged for nearly four years. It ended with me reluctantly taking a DUI plea. In between the arrest and plea Skip responded to every question and call, filed motions and performed a thorough investigation. They have the tools and skillset to execute better than most on your behalf. I won't ever need a DUI lawyer again, but if I did Skip would be the man.

    Skip did a great job for me over the course of a 2 1/2 year marathon case. It was on his advice that the case ran out that long but in the end his recommendation that we bond out of municipal and into county court paid off with a successful resolution for me. I was impressed with his diligence over the duration and his knowledge of how to work the system is the reason we reached a successful resolution for me. Highly recommended from me and reasonable priced in my opinion.

    James K. Sullivan (aka "Skip") did an amazing job handling my DUI case. He kept me informed throughout the entire process, and was always willing to chat when he was available. My case was in progress for roughly two years, and no matter how long I went without contacting him he still remembered me and my case as if we had just spoken the day before. He also put together multiple strategies to fall back on, in case the one we went with worked out. I really did feel as though I could put my complete trust in his expertise, especially because he ALWAYS followed through on any motions, document submissions, etc. that we discussed and furnished me with a copy that included a stamp showing when the court received them. Though your mileage may vary, he was able to get my case thrown out completely in the end. I can honestly say my life could be much, much different had I not chosen Skip to be my attorney. I strongly recommend you do the same.

    Skip answered my call in the wee hours of the morning, and from that point on was nothing but responsive, professional and proactive in the proceeding legal matters. I really appreciated everything he did, and was extremely thankful for his savvy advice and quick action. His knowledge of the law pairs well with his practical experience, making him a calming and confident asset for those he represents.

    I was arrested for DUI and was able to get a lawyer very quickly but he didn't support me or calm my anxiety or answer my questions. A friend referred me to the Chestney Law Firm and after my first meeting with Skip, I felt better immediately. He was extremely knowledgeable about the law and was patient and attentive. I quickly changed lawyers to Skip and that night was the first night I was able to sleep! Skip was able to get the charges changed to reckless driving and I am so thankful I used him. Skip and the staff at Chestney Law Firm are all superior!

    Skip did an amazing job handling my case and providing support throughout the process. I had never been in trouble before and with his guidance I was able to maintain a record free of a DUI. He was able to have the DUI charges dropped and I was only charged with a traffic violation. It was the best result for me and what I could have asked for!

    If anyone is the Atlanta area get arrested for DUI, I highly recommend they contact James "Skip" Sullivan at the Chestney Law Firm. Skip is very experienced and listens well to his clients. I believe he can help you obtain the most favorable disposition to your case regardless of the circumstances. In my own case, Skip got a full dismissal of the DUI charges. I also received a speeding ticket which Skip was able to get reduced to a non-reportable moving violation.
