Harris County Criminal Defense

Houston Attorney James (Jim) Sullivan has over 20 years of criminal defense law experience.  Sullivan has successfully represented over 3,000 clients in criminal district, county criminal and juvenile district court.

Attorney James Sullivan urges the accused to reflect on the principle that in court, as in life, some things are within their control and some things are not.  Many accused prefer to resolve their cases with the certainty of a plea bargain; others are so righteously indignant for being falsely accused that they insist on having a jury trial no matter the possible consequences.  In life, there will always be some doubts and some regrets.  Those who plead guilty to a lenient punishment may later wonder how their life may have unfolded if they had gone to trial and been acquitted.  However, on the flip side, those who insist on trial when the evidence weighs heavily against them and are found guilty at trial may regret their decision to go to trial when they may have had the opportunity to avoid a conviction with a plea deal.  Ultimately, the accused must perform a risk/reward analysis and make the decision whether or not to force the prosecutor to try and prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury.  Sullivan is a skillful trial lawyer and encourages the indignant innocent to fight their case at trial.

Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within your control, and some things are not. ~Epictetus, Greek Stoic philosopher, 1st century
