Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan Encourages Experiences to be Written Down

Harris County Criminal Defense

Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer James Sullivan represents many individuals who were traumatized by the events and experiences leading up to or surrounding their arrest by law enforcement.  These men or women may be in shock or bewilderment as to why they were arrested or charged in the first place.  Others may still carry the fresh scars or bruising from having been physically injured.  For whatever reason that contributes to their current mental state, what is extremely important is for the individual to put down in writing while it is still fresh in their mind what actually happened in the case–their experiences–for which he or she is being charged as well as any other pertinent information regarding location, witnesses, etc.  This not only helps them to remember and recount accurately what happened, it also helps the defense attorney to begin to formulate a defense theory that may carry the day at trial.

Many times, after having read the individual’s written account of what happened, James Sullivan has been able to elicit from the individual certain additional facts and circumstances from the accused that he or she overlooked or did not consider important to mention in the first place.  In the long run, however, that additional information made the difference in getting a case no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury, dismissed by the prosecutor or the person being found not guilty by a jury.

Unless we take time to think about our experiences, they stay on the surface and don’t become a part of our inner wisdom. ~Cecile Andrews, American author, present day
