Honest Advice. Experience. Diligence.

Four Generations of Sullivan Lawyers Have Helped Their Mississippi Neighbors.

My great grandfather, Daniel Enoch Sullivan, started life during Reconstruction on a red dirt cotton farm in the Mississippi Hill Country. Without the benefit of a law school or even college education,he "read for the law" by studying the books at night, and working part time in an experienced attorney's office when he could get away from the farm. He passed the Mississippi  bar exam and went on to be the first of three brothers who practised law in Leake County, Mississippi from the 1880's forward. Every generation of my family since then has had at least a couple of Mississippi lawyers. I am proud to be in the fourth generation of my family to practice here in Mississippi. If I can help you or your family, call me and let's talk.

My Background

PAUL DRAUGHN SULLIVAN

I grew up in Montgomery, Alabama. After college, I was the executive director of a national non-partisan voter registration project. We were directly responsible for registering hundreds of thousands of voters all across America. I attended law school from 1984-1986 at the University of Mississippi. Thereafter, I served two years as chief narcotics prosecutor for Charlotte County, Florida. I then spent twenty five years in solo practice in Charlotte County, representing people with all sorts of problems. From 2010 through 2017 I was a partner with Arnold D. Levine in Tampa, Florida. We handled complex commercial litigation, bankruptcy litigation, divorce and personal injury. I continue these practice areas here in Natchez.

I raise miniature species orchids, and enjoy walking the woods, studying native plants. I have a particular interest in Mississippi history, and in the history of the civil rights movement across the South.  I am a member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Natchez, and volunteer at the Natchez Stewpot. I have three great children!
