James Gary Sullivan
About James Gary SullivanAttorney James G. Sullivan has practiced criminal and juvenile defense law since 1994, and he is passionate about defending clients from governmental prosecution. Sullivan is a voice for the voiceless, the vulnerable and the damned. Sullivan frequently sets cases for a jury trial and forces the State to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt or dismiss it. In adult criminal district court, Sullivan frequently persuades the grand jury to dismiss (no bill) a client's felony charge. When this occurs, the client can immediately seek an expunction. Sullivan defends all criminal and juvenile misdemeanor and felony cases, including assault family violence, theft, shoplifting, fraud, hit and run, DWI, drug possession and delivery, robbery, burglary and homicide.

Currently, in Texas, there are only 38 such lawyers in private practice. Sullivan has attended Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College (TLC) in Wyoming, and he also financially supports the TLC as a Ranch Club member. The TLC teaches advanced trial techniques to defense attorneys.
