Hempstead Texas and Waller County Criminal Lawyers James Sullivan and Associates


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

James (Jim) Sullivan is an experienced Hempstead, Texas Criminal Defense Attorney. For 23 years, Sullivan has successfully fought the government in Jury Trials on behalf of clients in criminal and juvenile courts.

James Sullivan graduated from Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College, the most selective and prestigious trial advocacy program in America, and was invited to join The National Trial Lawyers organization, a professional organization composed of reputable trial lawyers from across the country.

Fighting for the People, Getting Cases Dismissed

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.

Reputation

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.

After being falsely accused and wrongfully admitted to the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center, I met with and hired Mr. Sullivan. He walked us through the […]

Being falsely accused of a crime is a very dramatic experience. In my case, a family member accused me of assaulting a minor and they pushed very hard to get me charged. When they finally got a DA to take felony charges 10 months after the alleged crime, I did some research and hired James […]
