Houston Criminal Lawyers Encourage Defense Witnesses to Cooperate

Harris County Criminal Lawyers

Houston criminal lawyers James Sullivan and Associates represent adults and juveniles on all kinds of misdemeanor and felony cases.  It is quite common that witnesses--even friends and acquaintances--will give a cold shoulder to those accused of crimes and feign ignorance of their relationship or make themselves scarce when a defense attorney is trying to serve them with a subpoena to come to court to testify during trial.

The attorneys at James Sullivan and Associates encourage witnesses to cooperate. The difference between a guilty verdict and an acquittal often comes down to the testimony of one key witness. When that witness chooses not to cooperate with defense counsel, justice often is not done.  

James Sullivan cares about his clients and gets proven results. He frequently counsels with clients at his office for hours at a time. He listens to their concerns, answers all of their questions and discusses legal strategies. He also explains how a criminal conviction could affect them, how to avoid having a conviction on their record, and how to get on the right path for a successful life. Because Sullivan understands that people need to honor work and family commitments, he offers evening, weekend and same day appointments along with free parking.

James Sullivan seeks real solutions to his clients' legal problems. In every criminal case, in order to be found guilty, the State has the burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Sullivan fights for his clients with the primary goal to get the case dismissed or won at trial. When that is not possible or probable, his secondary goal is to prevent his client from receiving a conviction or incarceration, such as with deferred adjudication, regular probation or pretrial diversion.  

If you are charged with a felony offense, James Sullivan may be able to get your case no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury, but there is a very brief window of time to do this. 

James  Sullivan generally tries to answer his own phone so that you can speak to an attorney directly.  He wants to hear from you and to help you. Call him. Don’t go to court alone. To schedule an appointment or to discuss your situation, call 281-546-6428 for a free consultation.
