Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan has represented more than 3,000 clients in criminal and juvenile courts in Harris and surrounding counties since 1994.  The cases listed in the graph above represent just the family violence cases since January 2008.  A graph covering the cases represented over the past 19 years would be much too lengthy to post.

Note: When a Grand Jury dismisses a felony complaint (by way of no bill), it means that the grand jury did not find probable cause and the accused can seek an expunction of the criminal record.  All felony cases dismissed by the grand jury were no billed after the grand jury reviewed an extensive defense packet prepared by Attorney James Sullivan.

1° = 1st Degree Felony, 2° = 2nd Degree Felony, 3° = 3rd Degree Felony, SJF = State Jail Felony
