Hempstead TX criminal defense attorneys Jim Sullivan and Associates have over 40 combined years of criminal defense law experience.  They have successfully represented over 4,000 clients.  They fight 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, attorneys Jim Sullivan and Associates strive not to prejudge.

In his first felony jury trial in the mid 1990s, Jim 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 else 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.

Jim Sullivan is Board Certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Juvenile Law is different than criminal law (see Juvenile Crime). Note: Among the more than 83,000 active lawyers in Texas, there are only 38 lawyers Board Certified in Juvenile Law in private practice.  The other 27 such lawyers work for the government.

Jim Sullivan has fought to get many cases dismissed or won at trial (see actual case results).  If you need serious representation, call them right now at 281-546-6428.
