Harris county juvenile defense attorney James (Jim) Sullivan is board certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas board of legal specialization.

Jim Sullivan agrees that most crime stems from poverty.  Ever since Marcus Aurelius’ statement on crime 2300 years ago, not much has changed.  Especially in the current challenging times where there is high unemployment, high foreclosure rate and a weak economy, there are many desperate people turning to crime to keep from being homeless.  Sullivan represents many juveniles from broken homes where the mother works two or more jobs to try and make ends meet.  Even then, they seem to be one pay check away from being homeless.  Often the children find themselves in trouble for shoplifting or other theft offenses to buy things that their mother cannot afford.  Sometimes, it is the mother who is arrested for stealing necessities that she cannot afford.

Sullivan gets proven results in misdemeanor and felony criminal and juvenile cases in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties. Sullivan attended Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College and was invited to join The National Trial Lawyers association.

Poverty is the mother of crime.  ~Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher, 2nd century B.C.
