Representation of Police Officers, Paramedics, Firefighters

Our office defends police officers, paramedics, and firefighters facing criminal charges. We have defended police officers, paramedics, and firefighters in drug possession matters, DUI cases, domestic violence cases, and computer crime cases. Often public safety employees will be simultaneously investigated by their own agency or department and a licensing board. We can assist public safety employees with navigating their internal department investigation and can either assist with licensing issues or make the appropriate referrals to licensing attorneys.

Our office has also defended clients before local commissions or entities that have some regulatory authority over the public safety employee. If our office does not handle a particular administrative issue, we can seek to make the appropriate referral for you to other attorneys who do handle these types of administrative issues. Some public safety unions will provide union contracted attorneys to assist with various facets of legal representation. Our office primarily focuses on defending the criminal defense matters for our clients. If you are facing state EMSA actions against your license, we can discuss this with you and help you determine if you are entitled to union contracted legal representation through your Department. We have assisted clients with local EMS/EMT agency investigation matters.

If your case is one that involves substance abuse issues we can help you get into the appropriate treatment. We have experience assisting law enforcement officers and public safety employees with finding the appropriate inpatient or outpatient treatment programs. We can recommend forensic psychologists as well to conduct an assessment of any issues you may face. Many first responders or public safety employees have been exposed to trauma on the job and may need additional counseling. We have also defended clients facing felony domestic violence charges, which can involve custody disputes. If your matter requires the assistance of a family law attorney, we can seek to provide a qualified attorney referral in that area as well.

If you are a military veteran, it may be in your interest to seek transfer of your case to Veteran's Court. This will depend on the specifics of your legal matter. We have handled numerous cases for persons seeking transfer to Veteran's Court.

If you believe you are under criminal investigation, or you have been charged with a crime, please call our office today to discuss your legal matter. We offer a free initial consultation.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Mr. Sullivan helped me out during a very difficult time for me personally, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. He, unlike other attorneys that I spoke to, wasn't dramatic or falsely enthusiastic, and that was reassuring. He was savvy and realistic, experienced, a listener, flexible and affordable. D. Client
★★★★★
Over the past two years I have experienced extreme legal difficulties. We were unable to get help from anywhere. Within 24 hours of contacting Matt, I felt that I had finally found someone who could assist me in working towards resolving our situation. I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan. B. Client

I hired Mr. Sullivan to represent me in my DUI trial. He fought hard for me in a very difficult case, which we won. I was very happy with his services. It was obvious he cared about me and my case. He is a real attorney who will stand up for you. M.R.
