We Do What's Right for Our Clients. Achieving the Best Possible Results on Their Behalf

Irvine Criminal Defense Lawyers

Zealously Defending Your Constitutional Rights

An arrest or criminal investigation can impact your life in many ways. It can affect your family, your job, and your reputation. You may be faced with the possibility of jail or prison time if you are convicted, not to mention such collateral consequences as the loss of professional licenses and other fines, penalties, and sanctions. Your entire future is at stake, and the person best qualified to help will be your criminal defense lawyer.

Our criminal justice system and the U.S. Constitution provide numerous protections to people charged with crimes. Whether these protections are experienced and to what extent, however, will depend largely upon the skill of the attorney that represents a suspect, defendant, or arrestee. At Sullivan Law & Associates, our Irvine criminal defense attorneys are committed to ensuring our clients experience every single right and protection to which they are entitled. We work diligently to preserve their constitutional rights and freedom.

Do not wait to involve an attorney if you have been accused of any crime. Call (949) 565-2793 today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced professionals.

    “Words cannot express all that I wish to say. After a long 4hrs this morning of trembling and at times felt I couldn’t breath. What you did for me, your attention to detail, positive information and the kind words of support just to name a few. I am so overwhelmed and speechless that all I can manage to say right this minute is, thank you, thank you and thank you. This journey of being a divorced parent and always being blamed is not easy.
