Currently, I practice in my own firm with an emphasis in DUI/Criminal Defense.  However, we also handle personal injury cases and family court matters.

It’s imperative that I tell you this. You guys have to note that not all those out there who pose to be hackers are real. Creditors kept coming after me and putting all to my credit report; this really caught up with me and kept drowning my credit score. My score was 510 and all my cards were maxed out. I have been on a search on how to take off eviction from my public records and most people on different forums kept talking about a professional but they were all fakes until my Grandpa introduced me to what he referred to as “the best and reliable hackers PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST” I emailed them on [email protected]. They gave me some instructions which I followed, it’s been 4 working days since I subscribed to their services and my score has been increased to 809, all the negatives are gone. I’ve been crying tears of joy. You can as well reach +1 480-420-8331.

Works hard for his clients
Mr Sullivan took on our case because another lawyer failed to represent us. He worked hard to get my fiance the best deal he could within a short amount of time,. He keeps his word and does as promised. I would recommend Mr Sullivan to anyone needing help. We have recommended him to several of our friends needing help.

Mr. Sullivan is an AWESOME attorney! My husband was sentenced to jail for not doing classes that he was court ordered to do. Every Attorney that I spoke to told me that there was absolutely nothing I could do to get him out of jail. I sat down with David, he wrote down all of the information he needed and had my husband out of jail within 3 weeks. Definitely the best attorney on the coast!

Absolutely the best attorney
Mr. Sullivan represented me through a dui refusal arrrest in MS. He got the charges deferred to the military and dismissed in the civilian side. All said and done I owed the state of MS no money, had to take no classes and he even got the record of arrest expunged! He was always available to talk if I wanted to and was very personable. I would recommend Mr. Sullivan for any law needs, no doubt about it. Hands down the best attorney I’ve worked with as well! Eric

Best Attorney I've Ever Worked With
I recently completed a multi-year civil tort battle with my very bitter ex-wife. In short, she threw the kitchen sink of low-down things she could do to ruin not only my life, but the life of my new spouse as well--harassment at work, baseless arrests, civil torts--you name it. I went through three attorneys and almost $60K without any productive results. This is, until I met David Sullivan. No other attorneys on the MS Gulf Coast wanted to touch my case. After I was turned down by several attorneys, David Sullivan took the time to listen to me and took my case. I was very leery of attorneys saying all the right things and then doing very little to defend me--all while invoicing me to the point of bankruptcy. From day 1, David Sullivan was a man of action. When he said he would do something, he did it. He actually read every piece of evidence I gave him and the opposing side submitted--and could actually recite it to me later from memory! I had never had an attorney take the time to actually learn my case. He has a razor sharp mind and intellect and quickly found numerous flaws and inconsistencies in the so-called evidence brought against me. He also expertly used my evidence in not only defeating the civil torts brought against us, but handily defeating them. I learned through working with Mr. Sullivan that he comes from a family of attorneys and that they all take their profession extremely seriously. Mr. Sullivan is also a former prosecutor, so he has that tiger-like aggressiveness about him to not only mount a defense, but also go on the attack. It felt so good after 7 years of court battles to finally be in control--all due to Mr. Sullivan. In court, he very prepare acted like he was in command and had the opposing side on defense the entire time. Like I said, he does what he says he will do and is always responsive (may take a day to get back to you because he is a one-man operation). The icing on the cake is he didn't empty my bank account on the way to victory. He is a man of integrity and honesty and like the title says--the best (and hopefully last) attorney I've ever worked with. He literally changed my life. If you need a really good attorney, look no farther.

Mr Sullivan worked hard for me and I would recommend him to anyone. I was facing a lot of prison time with charges in multiple states and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thank you David!!

Never gave up on me
Mr. Sullivan took my case on when I was told there was no hope for me and that I needed to accept what a previous attorney had 'negotiated' which wasn't a negotiation at all. He fought for me and stood by me until I got the best outcome I could have ever asked for. He's a man of integrity who fought for what he believed was right, and I will forever be grateful!
