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.

I would like to make a comment regarding Jim Sullivan. He recently represented my granddaughter in a drug case that would've been an obstacle for her future, and possibly in the way of getting into college. First we arranged a meeting at his office. He had spoken to my granddaughter, explaining that her mistake could cost her, her future. Letting her know that college is a main priority in having a successful life. He also explained to my granddaughter and I the process of going into the courtroom, and what he shall request for them to seal the case. Everything went well as planned. He is a Man of his Word. Genuinely honest, and truly cares about an individual's future. I definitely recommend him. His prices are very reasonable. I loved how everything fit in place with him being my granddaughters lawyer. He is the Lawyer that will change your life for the better. Such an amazing Lawyer. Thank you for everything.

Haciéndole saber que la universidad es una prioridad principal en tener una vida exitosa . También explicó a mi nieta y yo el proceso de entrar en la sala del tribunal , y lo que deberá solicitar para ellos para sellar el caso . Todo fue bien como planificado.

I am truly blessed to have found Attorney James Sullivan. In March of 2014 our world was turned upside down and our experience with the juvenile justice system in Montgomery County would be one that would change our lives forever. Our 13 year old son was accused of Indecency with a Child by his 5 yr old niece, a case we were certain he was innocent of. Sullivan answered my phone call when I initially called and talked with me on the phone calming my nerves, ensuring me that everything would be okay. After meeting with Sullivan later that day, we were assured we were in good hands. Sullivan is professional, proficient, and an expert in juvenile law. Sullivan treated our son like the good person we know he is and not as a sex offender that the juvenile justice system had “already” labeled him. Sullivan responded to our e-mails and phone calls in a timely fashion, even calling us after business hours to answer questions we had to ease our anxiety. Sullivan took the time to review the evidence in our son’s case seeking out the true facts and found many weaknesses in state’s case.
Sullivan was able to persuade the prosecutor to dismiss the case before our very first court setting! Our son did not even have to meet with the juvenile probation department. The fact that our son never had to be fingerprinted nor have his mug shot taken was a blessing to us as we did not want him to experience a situation like that for a crime he did not commit.
Sullivan is very educated in the area of juvenile defense and sought justice for our son to have his name cleared of an erroneous crime. Sullivan cares for his clients and seeking just and fair representation for each person he represents. He is committed to seeing that children receive the support and counsel they need to ensure they have a voice speaking on their behalf during difficult times. I can never thank Sullivan for all that he has done for our son and family. Sullivan even educated us on things we could do to protect our son from being accused of a crime of this nature in the future. I would recommend Sullivan to anyone who is going through an ordeal in juvenile court so you can have peace of mind knowing that you and your family are being taken care of by someone who is committed to seeking justice on your behalf. Sullivan is a true blessing to everyone he comes in contact with and we are forever grateful for everything he has done for our family.

Jim is an excellent lawyer who deeply cares for his clients. He has even taken time out of his busy schedule to help other lawyers prepare their cases. He is the rare attorney who is well-versed in adult AND juvenile criminal law. He is honest, hardworking, and is relentless in fighting for his clients.

I endorse this lawyer. He has passion for every client he represents and juries see that passion and he touches their hearts. He is incredible in front of a jury because he works with them as HIS jury and they become part of the defense team, you cannot ask more than that of a criminal defense attorney. Further, he is caring, prepared, and effective. I highly recommend for any criminal matter.
