IMG_2914BHarris County Theft Defense

Houston Criminal Attorney James Sullivan has represented more than 3,000 clients in criminal and juvenile courts in Harris and surrounding counties since 1994.  The cases listed in the graph below represent just the Theft crime related cases since January 2008.  A graph covering the cases represented over the past 20 years would be much lengthier.

NTL-top-100-memberJames Sullivan attended the Trial Lawyers College founded by legendary lawyer Gerry Spence and was invited to join The National Trial Lawyers organization. Sullivan is Board Certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Sullivan is one of only 38 such certified lawyers in private practice in Texas.

Note: When a Grand Jury dismisses a felony complaint (by way of no bill), it means that the grand jury did not find probable cause and the accused can seek an expunction of the criminal record.  All felony cases dismissed by the grand jury were no billed after the grand jury reviewed an extensive defense packet prepared by Attorney James Sullivan.
