Areas of Law Description

- Aggravated Assault

Under New Jersey law, aggravated assault can be charged under a variety of circumstances. If you are accused of attempting to cause serious bodily injury, you can be charged with aggravated assault. Aggravated assault can be charged whether or not you had a gun or other weapon.

- Criminal Sexual Contact

Under New Jersey law, criminal sexual conduct can be charged when a person sexually penetrates someone through physical force or other forceful means, but the victim does not sustain severe injury. Criminal sexual conduct can also involve situations involving sexual penetration with someone underage or with someone in a position of authority.

- Murder / Manslaughter

If you have been charged with a crime in connection with a fatality, nothing less than your future and your freedom hang in the balance. If you or someone you love has been charged with murder, manslaughter or vehicular homicide, you need to understand that the prosecution will devote significant resources to obtaining a conviction.

- Resisting Arrest

Under New Jersey law, resisting arrest can be charged as a disorderly personís offense. If law enforcement officers allege that you attempted to elude them, you face a fourth degree offense. Resisting arrest is a third degree crime if you threatened to use violent force against the officer.

- Vehicular Homicide

If you have been charged with a crime in connection with a fatality, nothing less than your future and your freedom hang in the balance. If you or someone you love has been charged with murder, manslaughter or vehicular homicide, you need to understand that the prosecution will devote significant resources to obtaining a conviction.

- Parole / Probation Violations

When someone is convicted of a crime, probation is a very often a part of the sentence. Individuals are often required to go on probation instead of going to jail or prison. If you are on probation, you will be supervised by a probation officer. As part of your probation, you will be required to comply with a number of rules.

- Weapon Charges

New Jersey has some of the strictest gun laws in the United States. For example, possessing a handgun without a permit is a second degree crime. These laws apply to New Jersey residents, as well as people traveling through the state. Therefore, even if you are traveling through New Jersey with a firearm, you still face potential weapons charges, even if you are licensed to carry a firearm in the state where you live.

- Family Law

Our law firm maintains a full-service family law practice. In addition to divorce and child custody, we represent clients in the following matters as well: adoption, alimony, child abuse, child neglect, child cruelty, DYFS investigations, grandparent visitation or custody, name changes, non-parent visitation or custody, prenuptial agreements, property division, temporary restraining orders (TROs) and final restraining orders (FROs).

- Adoption

Adoption is a momentous event that brings a family closer together. If you are thinking about adopting a child, it is important to work with a law firm that can help you comply with the various legal requirements associated with the adoption. Maynard & Sumner, LLC, advises and guides parents through the legal process of adoption. Based in Morristown, we serve clients throughout northern New Jersey.

- Child Abuse / Neglect

If allegations have been made against you for child abuse, neglect or cruelty, you are facing gravely serious matters that will greatly impact your life and the life of your children. Many accusations of abuse or neglect are simply unwarranted. Some people will make false or wildly exaggerated claims of abuse in an attempt to gain leverage in a family dispute.

- Division of Youth and Family Services / DYFS Investigations

In the words of the Division of Youth and Family Services / DYFS, this agency exists "to ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children and to support families." Despite its stated mission, in too many situations, DYFS causes far more harm than good.

- Restraining Orders / Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can never be tolerated. If you or your children are victims of domestic violence, you have the right to seek a temporary restraining order / TRO against your abuser. Restraining orders are powerful legal tools. Just because someone is seeking a restraining order against you does not necessarily mean that you are an abuser.

- Personal Injury

We are able to help people, who have been injured in nearly any type of accident or by wrongful conduct, including: car accidents, motorcycle accidents, semi or tractor-trailer accidents, slip-and-fall accidents (premises liability), dog bites, medical malpractice, police brutality and defective products. Our law firm also represents surviving family members in wrongful death claims.

- Workers' Compensation

In addition to our personal injury practice, we help working men and women who have been injured on the job bring workers' compensation claims. In certain cases, our investigation will reveal that someone other than your employer was negligent. In these situations, our attorneys can bring a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim.

- Negligence

Most personal injuries are a result of someone's negligent conduct. For example, motor vehicle accidents are typically caused when someone speeds, fails to yield, follows another vehicle too closely, changes lanes without checking the blind spot or otherwise does not pay proper attention to the task at hand.
