Houston Criminal Defense Attorney Jim Sullivan has represented a number of men on local and state most wanted lists. He once represented a local gang leader of MS-13 who was arrested in Austin on felony aggravated assault charges in Harris county. The man was accused of shooting a fellow gang member after a night of heavy drinking. On the second court setting, Sullivan persuaded the prosecutor that his client was not the shooter and the charges were dismissed.
When I see the Ten Most Wanted Lists... I always have this thought: If we'd made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn't be wanted now. ~Eddie Cantor, comedian, 20th century
Sullivan agrees with Eddie Cantor that many criminals on the Most Wanted Lists would probably not be there if they had felt wanted earlier. Many dangerous felons suffered horrific abuse and neglect as children. Their terrible early developmental years molded them and set the stage for their later criminal history.
Jim Sullivan cares about his clients and gets proven results (see Case Results). He frequently counsels with clients at his office for hours at a time. He listens to their concerns, answers all of their questions and discusses legal strategies. He also explains how a criminal conviction could affect them, how to avoid having a conviction on their record, and how to get on the right path for a successful life. Because Jim Sullivan understands that people need to honor work and family commitments, he offers evening, weekend and same day appointments along with free parking.
Jim Sullivan seeks real solutions to his clients' legal problems. In every criminal case, in order to be found guilty, the State has the burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Jim Sullivan fights for his clients with the primary goal to get the case dismissed or won at trial. When that is not possible or probable, his secondary goal is to prevent his client from receiving a conviction or incarceration, such as with deferred adjudication, regular probation or pretrial diversion.
Jim Sullivan is also Board Certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Juvenile Law is different than criminal law (see Juvenile Crime). Note: Among the more than 83,000 active lawyers in Texas, there are only 38 lawyers Board Certified in Juvenile Law in private practice. The other 27 such lawyers work for the government.
If you are charged with a felony offense, Jim Sullivan may be able to get your case no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury, but there is a very brief window of time to do this (see Grand Jury).
