Conroe, Texas Juvenile Defense Attorney Jim Sullivan spends hours with clients and their families, discussing legal strategy to defend their child and also life strategy to get their child on a better path. Too many juveniles get lost in the juvenile system and later wind up in the criminal system as young as age 17. Some youth die of drug use or criminal violence before they even have a meaningful chance at life.
Jim Sullivan is Board Certified in Juvenile Law. He is one of only 38 such lawyers in private practice in the entire Lone Star State. He has over 18 years experience defending juveniles and adults throughout Texas.
Recently, as reported in the Houston Chronicle, a 17 year old female high school student in Forth Worth was killed while allegedly robbing the occupants of a house along with two 21 year old men. What a wasted life. This is exactly what Attorney Jim Sullivan counsels today's youth to avoid--criminal behavior and associating with criminals. Had this girl focused on her school work and only made friends with positive youth, she likely would have had a good and long life. Fortunately, most of Sullivan's clients connect with him, his message and strive to do better.
