James Sullivan and Associates frequently represent real people accused with misdemeanor Assault and felony Aggravated Assault cases stemming from bar fights. Sometimes these bar fights are charged as Assault Family Violence. These domestic assault type cases carry the potential for serious consequences, such as not being able to own a firearm and up to one year in the county jail. If it is charged as a second such assault, then it is a third degree felony.
Attorney James Sullivan has been successful in getting many of these cases no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury, dismissed by the prosecutors or won at trial. They work hard to get the best possible result and their fees are affordable to most people.
