I hired Jaya on two occasions when she was relatively an unknown in the early part of her career at NeJame Law Firm. My son was accused of a crime he didn't commit and on another occasion his soon to be ex-wife was filing domestic violence charges against him. Jaya is available 24/7, she is strategic, organized, reassuring, thorough, patient, resourceful, compassionate, and honest. Jaya made one phone call to former Judge Belvin Perry (before he retired) and explained the mistaken identity for the crime he didn't commit (as my son had been in there almost 5 days and no one would listen) and my son was out of org county jail in 1 hr! The other case of domestic violence was dropped as Jaya discredited the ex-wife and exposed her lies. Also, I want to note that Jaya is not all about the money as she discounted our fees, but is about justice. To this day, if we need anything, we can call her and she remembers you and asks about the family, etc. A true legal advocate.

Being the mother of a son who made some bad choices, I needed help. I called NeJame Law and Jaya promptly returned my call. I was sitting on my bed crying my eyes out, knowing my sons choice was a bad one and needed help. Jaya was very professional and talked to me like I was a mother versus a person with a criminal son. She did not look down on me. She was prompt, professional and honest with us. She did not "sugar coat" anything, she told us like it was and was very confident about the outcome. unfortunately we had to hire her again, but we were confident that she would do her best. I would highly recommend her to any and all my friends that may need legal help.

We hired Attorney Balani to represent our special needs son. She was compassionate and took the time to explain everything each step of the way. She made sure we knew what to do ,who to speak with and made herself available to us. We found her to be knowledgeable and we felt confident in her abilities. She always represented us with integerity. I highly recommend Attorney Jaya Balani.
