Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer James Sullivan Is a Creative Trial Attorney


Houston Criminal Defense

Houston Criminal Trial Lawyer James Sullivan is creative in his approach to criminal defense work.  He looks beyond the offense report.  When he has a hunch that there is more to the story than meets the eye, he digs and delves into the story, searching for and piecing together facts and subtle nuances that he can fashion into a reasonable theory of the case.  To properly defend any case, you must have a theory of the case that will make sense to a jury of 6 or 12 people (depending on whether it is a misdemeanor or felony charge).  You must be able to translate this theory of the case into a compelling and persuasive closing argument.  If you cannot boil this theory down into 1 or 2 short sentences, then you do not have a good grasp of the facts, the defense or the theory.

A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. ~Frank Capra, Italian-American film director, 20th century

James Sullivan has prepared many misdemeanor and felony cases for trial.  Proper trial preparation takes time and requires focus and creativity.  It requires an understanding of the law and the facts.  It is somewhat like putting together a large jigsaw puzzle.  You have to search for and identify all of the important facts and then put them together into a plausible defensive theory.  If you are successful, your case will either be dismissed on or before the trial date or the jury will return a verdict of not guilty.  Sullivan has been successful in getting hundreds of criminal and juvenile cases dismissed, many on the day of trial.

NTLA-roundJames Sullivan attended the Trial Lawyers College founded by Legendary lawyer Gerry Spence and was invited to join The National Trial Lawyers organization. Sullivan has a proven record of defending people from all walks of life, faiths and countries in courts throughout Texas.
