- Megan’s Law: Megan’s Law requires convicted sex offenders to register with the local police, documenting where they live, any changes in address, any changes in employment or schooling, or other changes. (This is often referred to as sex offender registration.)
- Community Supervision for Life (CSL): Community Supervision for Life (also known as Parole Supervision for Life) augments the intrusion in an individual’s life when they re-enter the community. In addition to Megan’s Law registrations, parole officers may be permitted to come into the individual’s home to check up on them and the individual may be forced to obtain permission before leaving the state or country.
Protecting Your Rights Enhancing Your Freedom
The intrusions set forth by Megan’s Law and Community Supervision for Life will impact an individual for the remainder of their life, unless they take steps to terminate their requirement. However, termination may only occur after a significant amount of time has lapsed (usually 15 years after completion of the sentence). Our sexual assault defense attorneys advocate for our client’s true freedom. We represent clients who want to request modifications of the tier level of offense-ultimately impacting the severity of government intrusion.
We are recognized as a preeminent Megan’s Law violation defense lawyers in Morristown and throughout New Jersey. Our law firm is the only law firm in New Jersey which has successfully overturned a section of the Megan’s Law Statute; which we argued before the Supreme Court of New Jersey.

PAROLE SUPERVISION FOR LIFE AND COMMUNITY SUPERVISION FOR LIFE
Even after you have paid your debt to society for mistakes you made long ago, a sexual crime conviction can impact you for the rest of your life. Community Supervision for Life/CSL or Parole Supervision for Life/PSL, a condition of parole for those convicted of serious sexual offenses, permits the state to monitor and supervise an individual after completion of his or her sentence in a very intrusive way.

Parole Supervision for Life or Community Supervision for Life causes significant impact on the everyday life of the person subjected to the program. Termination of participation in this program is possible under certain conditions, but only after approximately 15 years following completion of his or her sentence. Termination can be challenging — it is crucial to have the assistance of criminal defense attorneys who have been successful in terminating this status. We can also assist in modification of conditions and terms of PSL/CSL to ease the impact on your life.
Further, modification of the level of offense of Megan’s law can impact the severity of parole or community supervision for life. Our law firm has the distinction of being the only law firm in New Jersey that has successfully “overturned” a section of the Megan’s Law statute before the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
