The foundation of our firm is criminal defense! The firm of James H. Maynard, & Associates was established as a criminal defense firm, and practiced criminal law exclusively until January 2002. In January 2002, the criminal defense firm merged with our general practice firm, Maynard & Truland, LLC. 

Now, our firm's largest department is the criminal practice group. We take a great deal of pride in the experience and quality of the attorneys and staff that implement this challenging and important legal practice. Below are a few frequently asked questions and answers regarding our firm's criminal practice.
