Houston Probation Violation Lawyer James Sullivan Fights the Government

Harris County Probation Lawyer

Houston criminal lawyer James Sullivan represents people charged with all kinds of criminal offenses, including violation of probation or a State's motion to adjudicate guilt. He fights against the perceived perfectionism the government requires of people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.  There are many rules that probationers are expected to follow. Many of these rules include the payment of supervisory fees and court costs. Other rules include monthly reporting to probation, attending certain classes, performing a certain number of hours of community service, etc.

Obviously, it can be quite difficult for a  family's breadwinner who is working overtime to support his family to also be able to attend the classes or to perform the community service hours, etc.  Sometimes, the choice comes down to losing his job or attending probation. This Catch-22 can have dire consequences--report to probation and lose your job and the family be evicted or stay at work and be considered an absconder for failing to report to probation.  In these dire economic times, when millions of people cannot find work, this can be a very difficult choice. Some judges expect probationers to follow their probation to the letter, i.e. to be perfect.  Perfectionism is an impossible goal. A Houston probation violation attorney often fights to persuade the judge to keep his clients on probation.
