Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan Fights to Make Justice Color Blind


CounseltableHarris County Criminal Lawyer Works for Justice

Houston criminal defense attorneys James (Jim) Sullivan has over 20 years of criminal defense law experience.  Sullivan has successfully represented over 3,000 clients.  Sullivan fights to make justice color blind.  During jury selection (voir dire), Sullivan does his best to weed out the seemingly prejudiced potential jurors although stereotypes can go both ways.  Sometimes, the venire members that on the surface appear like they would be strongly against a client based on skin color answer are found to be just the opposite when questioned.  For that very reason, James Sullivan strives not to prejudge.

In his first felony jury trial in the mid 1990s, James Sullivan represented a young black man who killed a young wealthy white man in car accident.  His client was charged with negligent homicide and everyone was sure that he would be found guilty and receive the maximum 10 years in prison.  Sullivan persuaded the jury that it was just a simple accident and not caused by gross negligence.  After a few minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a not guilty.  Sullivan has represented many more men and women of color at trial since then and persuaded juries to give their clients justice.

Until justice is blind to color, until education is unaware of race, until opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men’s skins, emancipation will be a proclamation but not a fact. ~Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, 20th century
