Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan Fights to Make Justice Color Blind


Houston Criminal Defense

Houston criminal defense attorneys James (Jim) Sullivan  has over 20 collective years of criminal defense law experience.  He has successfully represented over 3,000 clients.  He fights to make justice color blind.  During jury selection (voir dire), they do their best to weed out the seemingly prejudiced potential jurors although stereotypes can go both ways.  Sometimes, the venire members that on the surface appear like they would be strongly against a client based on skin color answer just the opposite when questioned.  For that very reason, attorney James Sullivan strives not to prejudge.

In his first felony jury trial in the mid 1990s, James Sullivan represented a young black man who killed a young wealthy white man in car accident.  His client was charged with negligent homicide and everyone was sure that he would be found guilty and receive the maximum 10 years in prison.  Sullivan persuaded the jury that it was just a simple accident and not caused by gross negligence.  After a few minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a not guilty.

Sullivan has fought to get many cases dismissed or won at trial.  If you need representation, call James Sullivan at 281-546-6428 for a confidential consultation.

Until justice is blind to color, until education is unaware of race, until opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men’s skins, emancipation will be a proclamation but not a fact. ~Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, 20th century
