Holistic, Team Approach to Case Work

When an individual has been charged with a DUI or another similar crime, they want to know that they have the best possible defense in their case. At Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan we work as a team on every case, meaning no attorney works in isolation. 

Each of our attorneys has a different area of focus, with diverse backgrounds and unique experiences. This allows us to provide the most creative and effective strategies for each of our  clients, which many other firms just simply cannot offer. 

We also prioritize showing up in court ourselves, meaning we never use coverage attorneys. When our client’s life and wellbeing is on the line, they can count on us to show up for them every time. The Pinellas County Courthouse is essentially our second home, as each of our attorneys is in court nearly every day, serving our clients’ best interest.

When you hire Attorney Tim Sullivan or any of the attorneys with Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan P.A in Clearwater, you can have the confidence that our holistic team approach yields the best results and allows for multiple professional perspectives on every issue.

Experience and Relationships with Current Judges and Prosecutors

Another defining feature of our firm is our attorneys’ extensive experience as prosecutors. Having served first as prosecutors for years, each of our attorneys has relationships with both the prosecutors and judges in Pinellas County. In addition, we limit our practice to only Pinellas County, so we work with the same judges and prosecutors day in and day out. 

Many of the individuals who were our attorneys’ contemporaries as prosecutors are now leaders in the Pinellas County court system. In fact, of the current judges in the 6th Judicial Circuit, 13 of them are former coworkers of members of our team. Being familiar with our judicial circuit helps us to respond uniquely to each prosecutor or judge in each case, predict next moves and outcomes accurately, and ultimately, represent our clients in a more efficient and effective manner.
