*No case is the same. Terrence O’Sullivan Law, P.A. does not ever guarantee any specific results in any cases. My Client makes the final decision whether to go to trial or accept a negotiated plea agreement.


**This is not an exhaustive list of my recent trial experience. I have lost trials as well. I have also not listed lesser trials which resulted in Judgment of Acquittals and Not Guilty Verdicts.


***Before hiring an attorney ask him/her to discuss their trial history, both wins and losses.
