Attorney 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. James Sullivan has been certified as an expert by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of Juvenile Law since 2003. Currently, in Texas, there are only 38 such lawyers in private practice. Sullivan graduated from Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College (TLC), the most selective and prestigious trial advocacy program in America, and he also financially supports the TLC as a Ranch Club member. The TLC teaches advanced trial techniques to defense attorneys. Sullivan was also invited to join The National Trial Lawyers organization. James Sullivan grew up in Nashville and in 1987 moved to Texas to attend Baylor University where he studied Journalism, Latin American Studies and Spanish at Baylor University. Sullivan graduated with honors in 1990. He then lived in Mexico City and traveled throughout Mexico prior to entering law school. He also speaks Spanish.
