Megan’s Law matters are complex and go far beyond the scope of “normal” criminal defense matters.  Sex offense convictions can have severe and long-lasting collateral consequences.  Busy criminal defense attorneys may be unaware of the many collateral consequences that accompany sex offense convictions, both in New Jersey and in other states.  As a result, trial lawyers often fail to inform their clients of these post-conviction collateral consequences.

If you are an attorney who is representing an individual accused of or charged with a sex offense, Maynard Law Office, LLC offers Megan’s Law consultations to help you obtain the best possible legal outcome for your client.  Our attorneys have experience defending clients charged with sex offenses across New Jersey and in other states.  Further, we have obtained favorable legal outcomes for many of our clients, and understand the legal issues involved.
