ABOUT SULLIVAN LAW GROUP

  • I will always do business with this group when in need.
    “I came to the Sullivan Law Group with serious legal issues and was treated with concern, kindness and respect. I found these professionals to be highly proficient, well respected, and quick to respond.”

  • They [Ann and Deborah] were highly professional, very organized, and very thorough. They understood the tight timeline available for an appeal, and threw themselves into the case.
    My son was facing the most important test of his career. Although he had been granted accommodations for reading and ADHD disabilities by prior testing authorities, the agency administering this important test denied any accommodation. I have practiced law for over thirty years, and I knew I needed a legal expert in disability law. Checking with other lawyers, I was referred to Ann Sullivan— Ann and her fellow attorney, Deborah Collins, were fantastic! They were highly professional, very organized, and very thorough. They understood the tight timeline available for an appeal, and threw themselves into the case. They researched the applicable law and helped my son put together a compelling well-written appeal with an extensive exhibit package. This week my son learned that the testing authority has agreed to provide the appropriate accommodations – I am convinced it was due to the professional work of Ann Sullivan, Deborah Collins and their team at Sullivan Law Group, P.L.C.

  • Communication was outstanding and legal fees were reasonable.

    "Took on my medical non compete when other legal practices told me to 'accept it.' Took on a large hospital system and found creative approaches to negotiation to get an outcome in my favor. Took less than three months. My lawyer and her staff were professional, appropriate and always available. Communication was outstanding and legal fees were reasonable. Would highly recommend."

  • We would recommend [Ann] in the highest possible terms for any company needing her services for an employment law case.
    Our company retained the services of The Sullivan Law Group on a very serious and complicated employment defense case. We were immediately surprised and pleased by the close attention and responsiveness that we received from Ann Sullivan, a Senior Partner with the firm. It had always been our experience that someone of her stature would be more aloof and difficult to reach, however, that could not have been further from the truth. She quickly developed a comprehensive strategy for our case and insisted on getting us the best possible result. My confidence in our choice was sealed when I attended a deposition with Ann and was taken aback by a level of preparedness that I had never seen before in any other attorney. Every question, every topic raised, Ann had prepared for and by the end of the deposition, the Plaintiff agreed with us that he did not have a case. Not only did Ann provide us with the best possible result for our case, but we consider her not just our attorney, but our friend. We would recommend her in the highest possible terms for any company needing her services for an employment law case.

  • Our company hired The Sullivan Law Group based on outstanding recommendations from other businesses. These recommendations were exactly on point.
    With two separate employment matters, our company hired The Sullivan Law Group based on outstanding recommendations from other businesses. These recommendations were exactly on point. We worked closely with Melissa Picco and found her to be comprehensive, strategic, highly professional and responsive. Any question that we had any time, she answered quickly and thoroughly. As we continued through our cases, she thought of every possible scenario and questions that we had not even considered. What we received from Melissa were impeccably detailed defenses to frivolous cases, resulting in outstanding outcomes. We could not be more pleased with the results, and would not hesitate to recommend Melissa to any other company in the same situation.
