Better solutions for your business.

Our Firm

At Sullivan Hill, we understand the importance of providing efficient, aggressive and responsive legal representation. For more than 50 years, this understanding has enabled us to provide the best, most cost-effective service and solutions available to all of our clients.

Local Focus

As one of San Diego’s longest standing business and trial law firms, Sullivan Hill has grown and evolved over the years as our local economy and business landscape has changed. Our deep roots in the business community have afforded us an acute understanding of the needs of San Diego’s historically prominent and emerging industry sectors. From small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, each client is our top priority and receives our undivided attention and our best resources, resulting in superlative service.

Our Insolvency and Commercial Bankruptcy, Insurance Coverage and Construction Law practice groups have built a reputation as being among the best in San Diego, with a proven track record of successfully advising both locally and nationally based clients.

In addition to our main office in San Diego, we have an active practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country.

Beyond Legal

Sullivan Hill actively supports a variety of organizations and projects that support the communities in which we live. Our strong commitment to giving-back is reflected in the multitude of ways our attorneys and staff donate their time and energy.

Pro Bono

While anyone is able to propose a pro bono opportunity, many of our attorneys receive referrals through a variety of non-profit legal aid centers. Others use their pro bono time to give back to organizations where they have made a personal connection.

We’re Green

Sullivan Hill is committed to protecting our environment. We are always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact and implement best practices.

We power off workstations each night and 90% of our servers run in a virtual environment, saving an immense amount of electricity. When feasible, we utilize video conferencing equipment in place of travel and file electronically with the courts.

Sullivan Hill was recognized with a certificate of participation by the City of San Diego for its zero waste practices in 2019. In 2008, we became the first San Diego-based firm to be recognized as an ABA-EPA Law Office Climate Challenge Partner. We were also confirmed by the American Bar Association as a partner in Best Paper Practices.

Diversity & Inclusion

Sullivan Hill’s commitment to diversity and inclusion goes beyond a committee, policy or trend – it is a commitment to promote an environment in which differences are respected and celebrated, employees are treated fairly, and individual skills and talents are valued. We believe we, and our clients, benefit from our rich firm culture.

Our vision is to hire, promote and retain talent as excellent as they are diverse. We strive for gender and racial equality in all of our ranks and are committed to ensuring parity in pay amongst our attorneys and staff members. We staff legal matters with conscious regard to skill set, legal experience, resources and diversity, understanding that our individual differences, talents, experiences, ideas and viewpoints are powerful tools that make us better advocates and counselors. We appreciate working with clients with similar commitments to diversity and inclusion.

Sullivan Hill’s diversity initiatives are applicable but not limited to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits; and professional development and training. Sullivan Hill provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, mental or physical handicap, pregnancy, military status, veteran status, political beliefs, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, Sullivan Hill complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities. This firm policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.
