Jaye is a knowledgable attorney, a remarkable fighter, and even a fantastic friend. She was my attorney and I've seen her interact with other clients as well. She is a legal maverick, and uses every tool and motion at her disposal to dismiss and win cases, which, as a client, is exactly what you want. She helped me with my (comparatively) low profile case, but is known for consistently winning very large criminal defense cases. She is incredibly professional, well prepared, and also dresses the part in the courtroom.
Legal stuff aside, she goes above and beyond what is expected of an attorney. She is tremendously easy to talk to, understanding, and funny. In such a serious context (as criminal defense and the courts in general are), it's a great thing to have someone like Jaye at your side. Don't get me wrong, she will not "baby" you. You don't want a lawyer who treats you like a kid, you want a lawyer who treats you like an equal, a person who will not be shy to give you frank advice about your case, its status, and what you need to do to win. I am incredibly fortunate to have had Jaye advocate for me.
I was charged with assault with a deadly weapon to inflict great bodily harm; to make matters worse the DA was charging me additionally with a hate crime. From the moment I seen Jaye she was nothing short of a professional with me, and an assassin with the DA and witnesses. I was a US Sailor at the time that got into a bar fight that got ugly and I was without question fighting for my life. The other two defendants who went with another attorney pleaded to lesser felony charges and never went to trial. Jaye and myself went to trial and that’s when I seen Jaye at her finest. I was acquitted on all charges and work as a Firefighter in San Diego I would hire Jaye Ryan Maas any and every time I need an attorney.
