Houston juvenile lawyer Jim Sullivan is one of only 38 attorneys in Texas Board Certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and also in private practice.  He is also an experienced trial attorney, having represented clients at trial in criminal and juvenile court for such serious cases as murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated sexual assault of a child and many others.

In this case, the client was charged with a serious 2nd degree felony offense of Aggravated Assault.  If found true (convicted), the juvenile could have landed at the Texas Youth Commission where he could have been held until his 19th birthday.  The State even had the option to seek a certification of his client to waive jurisdiction of the juvenile court and have his client be transferred to the adult system and be treated as an adult where he could have faced between 2 to 20 years in prison.  The State also could have sought a Determinate Sentence in the juvenile system whereby, if found true, he could never get his juvenile record sealed and could also be sentenced to TYC for many years.  Instead, Jim Sullivan fought for his client and persuaded the State to do the right thing and reduce his client’s case to a misdemeanor and to also receive probation.  Two years after his probation is over, he can return to court and request that his juvenile record be sealed (expunged).  If done, his entire arrest history for the felony case will be wiped clean.  Therefore, when he applies for college, he will not have admit ever having had any juvenile history at all.
