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 crime.

Proven Results

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


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.

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