High quality legal representation for sex offenders on Megan’s Law and SORNA
James H. Maynard, the head attorney at Maynard Law Office, LLC, founded the law firm in 1994. The firm began as a boutique criminal defense law firm in northern New Jersey. Originally, Mr. Maynard and his associates focused on delivering high quality legal services to criminal defendants.
About 15 years ago, Mr. Maynard became aware of the lack of justice and experienced attorneys available to convicted sex offenders. Post-conviction sex offense law is highly technical. So, Mr. Maynard began the process of educating himself in all issues related to sex offense law, i.e. Megan’s Law and SORNA. In addition, Mr. Maynard is very familiar with the social and medical science related to sex offenders.
Now, the law firm focuses on providing high quality legal representation to convicted sex offenders in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Mr. Maynard has argued before the Supreme Court of New Jersey, resulting in two major victories: State v. Gyori, 185 N.J. 422 (2005) and In re Registrant, N.B., 222 N.J. 87 (2015). Also, Mr. Maynard has lectured at Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses before the New Jersey State Bar Association.
