At Maynard Law Office, LLC, we believe strongly in protecting people’s rights throughout the legal process. Even if you have been convicted of a crime, you still have rights. For instance, if you were found guilty at trial, you have the right to appeal the trial court’s rulings. If you have already served your sentence but face additional sanctions due to alleged violations of your probation or parole, you need experienced legal counsel now more than ever. Our law firm helps people across New Jersey seek all forms of post-conviction relief.
- Appeals: If the trial court made legal errors in your trial, you can appeal the judge’s decision. Our law firm will thoroughly review the trial transcripts and identify the trial court’s errors. We will then prepare a persuasive brief for the appellate court. If oral arguments are necessary to further argue your position, our New Jersey post-conviction attorneys will be ready to take action.
- Expungements: If you have ever been arrested, charged or convicted with a crime, you may be able to expunge your record. An expungement will clear your record. Our law firm will look at your records and help you determine whether you qualify for expungement. If you are a candidate for an expungement, our lawyers will help you complete the appropriate documentation.
- Termination of Community Supervision for Life (CSL) or Parole Supervision for Life (PSL): Conviction to certain crimes will lead to CSL or PSL requirements upon your release. Complying with CSL / PSL is an enormous burden, and will make it difficult for you to fully reintegrate back into society. Few, if any law firms in New Jersey can match our law firm’s work in the area of Megan’s Law and CSL / PSL. Attorney James Maynard successfully appealed multiple sections of Megan’s Law before the New Jersey Supreme Court, and has helped numerous individuals modify or terminate their CSL / PSL requirements.
- Post-conviction relief: If there was a substantial denial of your rights under the Constitution, if the court lacked jurisdiction, or if your sentence was in excess of the sentence authorized by law, you may have grounds for post-conviction relief. Our law firm will review the facts of your case and advise you as to your options.
- Violation of probation or parole (VOP): Probation is a common punishment associated with any guilty plea or conviction. If you have been accused of violating any part of your probation, you may have to go to jail. Our law firm will work with your probation officer to try to convince him or her that you remain a strong candidate for probation. We can also appear at your Violation of Probation (VOP) hearing and put forth the strongest possible case on your behalf.
