The New Jersey Criminal Defense Process
Criminal Charges Attorneys, Serving All of New Jersey
It is simple: the earlier you have a lawyer defending you against a criminal charge, the more that lawyer will be able to do for you. Ideally, you should get in touch with a criminal defense lawyer if you believe the police are investigating you, or before you have been charged. If you have already been charged, you should enlist quality legal counsel as early as possible.
At Maynard Law Office, LLC, we believe that a proactive defense is the best defense. From our office in Morristown, we defend individuals from all walks of life across New Jersey. We are ready to take action from the moment we take your case. While our work obviously involves finding the best possible means to resolve your criminal charge, we are also prepared to take on other procedural issues, including:
Bail motions: Bail is one of the most important issues for any criminal defendant. The amount of bail can determine whether you are free before trial or whether you must languish in jail. Courts establish bail to ensure that a defendant will be present in court. Unfortunately, many judges set bail at extraordinarily high amounts. Even with the aid of a bail bondsman, it can be difficult for defendants to come up with the money necessary to pay for bail. You do have the right to a bail hearing. Our lawyers have successfully argued at hundreds of bail motions. We will present all favorable information to show that you are not a flight risk and are a worthy candidate for bail reduction.
Extradition: Extradition involves physically removing a criminal defendant from one jurisdiction to another. Extradition has a number of emotional and financial costs. First, extradition can involve uprooting someone from a place where he or she has substantial ties. Secondly, the actual process of taking someone from one state to another can be very expensive. Therefore, if you are currently in New Jersey and have been accused of a crime or violating the terms of your probation or parole in another state, you may face extradition. Even if another state has demanded your extradition, you will have a hearing before a New Jersey Superior Court. Our law firm has argued numerous extradition hearings and will make the strongest possible case on your behalf.
