Houston Juvenile Lawyer James Sullivan Agrees that Poverty Is the Mother of Crime


Houston Juvenile Defense

Harris county juvenile defense attorney James (Jim) Sullivan is board certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  James 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.

IMG_2922BJames Sullivan agrees that most crime stems from poverty.  Ever since Marcus Aurelius’ statement on crime 2300 years ago, not much has changed.  Especially in the current challenging times where there is high unemployment, high foreclosure rate and a weak economy, there are many desperate people turning to crime to keep from being homeless.  Sullivan represents many juveniles from broken homes where the mother works two or more jobs to try and make ends meet.  Even then, they seem to be one pay check away from being homeless.  Often the children find themselves in trouble for shoplifting or other theft offenses to buy things that their mother cannot afford.  Sometimes, it is the mother who is arrested for stealing necessities that she cannot afford.  As a Houston criminal lawyer and juvenile lawyer, Sullivan fights to get the best result for his many juvenile and adult clients.  Call Sullivan at 281-546-6428 for a confidential consultation.

Poverty is the mother of crime.  ~Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher, 2nd century B.C.
