James H. Maynard is the founder and managing member of the law firm. The firm has been providing high quality legal council and aggressive representation since 1994. Established as one of the first criminal defense “boutique” firms in the State of New Jersey, the firm later diversified to encompass other practices areas to accommodate clients’ various needs.

In 2013, Mr. Maynard was named Founding Chairman of the Megan's Law Sub-committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association, Criminal Section . The Megan's Law Sub-committee will address the law, procedures, and practice environment of New Jersey's sex offender laws and related matters.

Among Mr. Maynard's many accomplishments, he successfully appealed a portion of Megan's Law to the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the first and only law firm to do so in the State of New Jersey, leading to a dismissal of his client’s charges and a revision of Megan's Law by the New Jersey Legislature.

Mr. Maynard has actively volunteered and provided free services for the surrounding community. In 2002, James joined Trial Lawyers Care (TLC), an organization that provided "pro bono" (free) legal representation for 9/11 victims. He represented the only living "Lead Case" of the September 11th Victims before the Victims’ Compensation Fund, and litigated significant precedential issues to a successful conclusion.
