Montgomery County Juvenile Defense
James Sullivan is Board Certified in Juvenile Law since 2004. Juvenile law is not the same as criminal law. There are ways to keep a theft offense off of a juvenile's record or to get a juvenile's record sealed after as little as six months.
As an attorney myself, when concerns arose over an incident involving my son, I knew the extreme importance of finding an attorney who is Board Certified in juvenile law. Board Certified lawyers are highly specialized - enough that the State recognizes them for their expertise. My search led me to Jim Sullivan and I cannot thank him enough. He is extremely well-versed in this highly specialized area of law, kind, compassionate and non-judgmental. He spent a great deal of time understanding the incident involving my son and providing us guidance. Thankfully, it appears that this will turn out to only be a "learning opportunity" for my son but, I have Jim's number in my phone and will call him immediately if the need arises. ~Concerned Mom (Yahoo Directory Review)
