Houston Robbery Defense Lawyer | Harris County Theft Attorney James Sullivan


Houston Criminal Defense Trial Attorney James Sullivan represented a man charged with Robbery in the 339th District Court in Harris County. Sullivan's client was accused of stealing a cell phone during an assault. The accused was on parole and therefore could not post bond. The accused insisted he did not steal the cell phone and that it was only an assault. 

James Sullivan pushed the case through the legal system and managed to get a jury trial in 5 months time. Many defendants in the criminal district courts languish for one year or longer in jail awaiting trial. The accused faced 2-20 years in prison and the prosecutors' best plea bargain offer was 4 years in prison. 

On January 9, 2012, when the case was set for a jury trial, Sullivan went to court prepared for trial. The prosecutors finally did the right thing and agreed to time served on a misdemeanor assault.  The accused was thrilled with the outcome. 

James Sullivan graduated from Baylor University in 1990 with a degree in Journalism, the ideal degree for investigating, discovering and telling winning stories in court. In 1993, Sullivan graduated from South Texas College of Law, which is nationally recognized as the top law school for trial advocacy.
