The Law Office of Matt Sullivan is dedicated exclusively to criminal defense. The office provides representation at the investigative, grand jury, trial, plea, post-conviction, and appellate levels. Matt A. Sullivan is a graduate of the University of San Francisco Law School. He is a member of the NACDL, the CPDA, and the CACJ. He began his legal career working as a deputy public defender in Marin County where he obtained numerous acquittals, hung juries, and dismissals in trial cases with limited resources. He then spent two years working for a private criminal defense firm in San Francisco on serious federal and state matters, including drug conspiracy and sexual misconduct cases. While at the firm Mr. Sullivan was instrumental in obtaining the release of two clients facing life in prison in child molestation cases in San Mateo County. Since opening his own office he has continued to focus on providing exceptional representation in all criminal matters. In 2013 he won a motion for new trial in a child molestation case where his client had been convicted at trial (while represented by a different attorney) based on faulty DNA evidence. His client was facing 32 years to life in prison. This case eventually settled after extensive plea negotiations in 2014 for a credit for time served, no strikes, no sex registration plea deal (numerous serious felonies were also dismissed), and the client was released from jail. Among other victories in 2014, Mr. Sullivan won the complete dismissal of all charges in the middle of trial in an extremely contentious domestic violence case in Marin County. Mr. Sullivan currently handles a varied caseload of both simple and complex offenses, including drug offenses, domestic violence, sex cases, DUI offenses, crimes of violence, and white collar crimes. He has represented clients in federal grand jury investigations and in pre-filing negotiations at both the state and federal level.
