  • Patrick M Trivett

    Mr. Sullivan is an excellent attorney, who recognizes the individual needs of his clients. His professional relationships with both prosecutors and judges alike helps him achieve the results you need in your case. As a former prosecutor himself, Brian fundamentally understands the goals which the State seeks to achieve, consequently, he can also see the flaws in their case. In my experience, its be a pleasure working beside Brian as a fellow attorney.
