Houston Felony Lawyer

James (Jim) Sullivan is an experienced Harris County Felony Lawyer. For over 25 years, Sullivan has fought the government at the Grand Jury and in Jury Trials on behalf of clients in Criminal District Courts throughout southeast Texas.

James Sullivan graduated from Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College, the most selective and prestigious trial advocacy program in America.

Grand Jury Defense

If you are charged with a felony offense, James Sullivan may be able to get your case dismissed (no billed) by the grand jury, but you need to hire him before or soon after your first court setting.  If your felony case is dismissed by the grand jury, you may have the immediate right to get your criminal record expunged. James Sullivan has been able to get almost 100 felony cases dismissed by the grand jury in just the last few years.  Sullivan also charges less to fight a case at the grand jury than to fight a case at a jury trial.

James Sullivan is one of the few attorneys who has a proven record for winning cases at the grand jury level.  Most criminal lawyers have never taken this approach to win a case. If you are seeking to hire an attorney for a felony offense, you should ask the attorney about this process. If they cannot explain the process to you and show that they have proven experience, then you may want to hire someone else to defend you.


James Sullivan has a good reputation in the legal community. Sullivan is humbled by fine lawyers who endorse him on AVVO. He is also very grateful for clients who write testimonials on his behalf. Sullivan has a proven record of defending people from all walks of life, faiths and countries in courts throughout Texas.

Defending Your Freedom

James Sullivan chose to become a criminal lawyer.  It was not by accident.  Fighting the government and defending people come natural to him—he was born into a diverse, dynamic family of conservative Baptists and liberal social activists. Unlike many colleagues who practice criminal law, Sullivan has never prosecuted anyone and never will. That is not him. His entire career is devoted to defending people accused of crimes and delinquencies.

Proven Results

James Sullivan gets results. Since 1994, Sullivan has defended more than 3,000 people charged with every kind of felony case, including murder, aggravated robbery, drug cases, sex offenses, domestic assault, theft and white collar crime.


James Sullivan practices criminal law with a simple philosophy. If a client says he is not guilty, and if the prosecutor will not dismiss the charge, then Sullivan advises his client that they should fight the case at a jury trial. Unlike many other attorneys, Sullivan does not try to convince an innocent person to plead guilty. Instead, Sullivan fights for his clients’ freedom and reputation. 

Legal Services for a Reasonable Fee

James Sullivan offers a full range of legal services in his criminal defense practice. Unlike many other attorneys, Sullivan charges separate fees on trial and non-trial cases.

Cares About His Clients

James Sullivan cares about his clients and is concerned about their future. He counsels with clients at his office for a minimum of one hour.
