Harris County Criminal Trial Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights, Freedom and Future

James (Jim) Sullivan is an experienced Houston Criminal Attorney. For over 20 years, Sullivan has successfully fought the government in Jury Trials on behalf of clients in criminal and juvenile courts.

James Sullivan attended the Trial Lawyers College founded by Legendary lawyer Gerry Spence and was invited to join 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.

The National Trial LawyersDefending Your Freedom

James Sullivan chose to become a criminal lawyer.  It was not by accident.  Fighting the government and defending people come natural to him—he was born into a diverse, dynamic family of conservative Baptists and liberal social activists.  Unlike many colleagues who practice criminal law, Sullivan has never prosecuted anyone and never will.  That is not him.  His entire career is devoted to defending people accused of crimes and delinquencies.

Proven Results

James Sullivan gets results (see Case Results).  Over the past 20 years, Sullivan has defended more than 3,000 people charged with every kind of criminal and juvenile case, including murder, aggravated robbery, drug cases, sex offenses, domestic assault and DWI.


James Sullivan practices criminal law with a simple philosophy.  If a client says he is not guilty, and if the prosecutor will not dismiss the charge, then Sullivan advises his client that they should fight the case at a jury trial.  Unlike many other attorneys, Sullivan does not try to convince an innocent person to plead guilty.  Instead, Sullivan fights for his clients’ freedom and reputation (see Trial Case Results).  Sullivan was honored to attend the Trial Lawyers College founded by legendary lawyer Gerry Spence and to be invited to join The National Trial Lawyers organization.

Affordable Legal Services

James Sullivan offers a full range of affordable legal services in his criminal and juvenile defense law practice.  Unlike many other attorneys, Sullivan charges separate fees on trial and non-trial cases.

Cares About His Clients

James Sullivan cares about his adult and juvenile clients and is concerned about their future.  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 and how to get on the right path for a successful life. Because Sullivan understands that people need to honor work and family commitments, he offers afternoon, early evening and same day appointments along with free parking.


James Sullivan has a good reputation in the legal community.  Sullivan is humbled by fine lawyers who endorse him on AVVO. He is also very grateful for clients who write testimonials on his behalf. Most of his business comes from referrals from past clients and other lawyers, although it is not necessary to have a referral for him to defend you.  Anyone can call Sullivan to represent them.

I cannot thank you enough for your help with my case in Montgomery county. It was a very serious accusation against me. My teenage nephew falsely accused me of molesting him. You took our initial call on a weekend and assured us then that everything would turn out fine. You explained that it was very important for a good attorney to get involved before indictment because you believed a good defense attorney could get the case no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury. And, that’s exactly what you did. You are very talented and professional at what you do. I cannot thank you enough for standing beside me, believing in me and and most importantly, your confidence. You are truly a super lawyer. ~K.M., Dallas (AVVO review)

The law practice of James Sullivan is devoted solely to criminal and juvenile defense. Sullivan has tried many cases in the Harris county criminal and juvenile courthouses. Approximately half of his cases involve criminal charges while the other half involves juvenile charges.
