Philosophy

James Sullivan practices criminal law with a simple philosophy.

Cares About His Clients

James Sullivan cares about his adult and juvenile clients and is concerned about their future. He frequently counsels with clients at his office for at least an hour. He invests the necessary time to get to know them and their legal problem, and not just the facts but also the emotions underneath. Ultimately, a good trial lawyer knows that emotion persuades a jury far better than logic. After all, people make decisions at gut level and then use their head to support it. The attorneys trained at the Trial Lawyers College get this. Even if a client is not fighting his case at trial, it is important to understand the client’s story fully in order to get the best result.

Because Sullivan understands that people need to honor work and family commitments, he offers afternoon, early evening and same day appointments along with free parking.
