Fort Bend County Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan has represented more than 3,000 clients in criminal and juvenile courts in Harris and surrounding counties since 1994.  The cases listed in the graph above represent just the burglary, theft, forgery and fraud cases since January 2008.  A graph covering the cases represented over the past 20+ years would be much too lengthy to post.

James (Jim) Sullivan is an experienced Richmond, Texas criminal defense attorney. For over 20 years, Sullivan has successfully fought the government in jury trials on behalf of clients in criminal and juvenile courts. Sullivan has also been able to get hundreds of serious criminal and juvenile cases dismissed or reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor without a trial.

James Sullivan graduated from Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College, the most selective and prestigious trial advocacy program in America. Sullivan was also recognized by The National Trial Lawyers organization. Sullivan has a proven record of defending people from all walks of life, faiths and countries in courts throughout Texas.

Note: When a Grand Jury dismisses a felony complaint (by way of no bill), it means that the grand jury did not find probable cause and the accused can seek an expunction of the criminal record.  All felony cases dismissed by the grand jury were no billed after the grand jury reviewed an extensive defense packet prepared by Attorney James Sullivan.
