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.

Jaya was amazing! Knowledgeable and got the job done beautifully.... In record time. She was professional and even gracious as emotions soared. She knows the "ins and outs" of the criminal legal system and got an even-better result than we could have dreamed of. I highly recommend her for any criminal defense work. She is simply the best!! VERY grateful we were referred to her.

I could not have found a better firm than Nejame Law. My son violated his probation and was facing 10-40 possible years in prison. David Jancha and Jaya Balani were the very competent team assigned to the case. Jaya attended all of the court sessions and was absolutely outstanding! She is professional, creative, tenacious, and very knowledgeable of the law. Jaya will pay close attention to what may seem as minor details, to everything the judge and the prosecutor say, and use it to get your desired outcome. The end result of our case was no prison time and early termination of my son's probation! Jaya also went that extra mile to bring his case to proper closure with the Department of Corrections.
I was also very satisfied with the fee charged by Nejame Law, and would highly recommend them to handle your case.

I want to reiterate how thankful and appreciative I am of Jaya Balani's work! I'm thrilled and relieved that after all of the work she did researching the law and filing motions the prosecutor eventually dismissed the 7 charges filed against me including a trafficking charge with a 2 year minimum. Jaya got a the best result for me, but I also really liked her professionalism and manner. She was certainly a bright spot in an otherwise difficult situation. What a wonderful resource. I'll be quick to refer her to others who may have a need.'

Jaya made my cases go very smoothly and asked all the right qeustions to help me get a favorable outcome she also helped me to understand the process. She has beyond excellent follow-up and really goes out of the way to make you know your a priority. Jaya is able to navigate the legal system for her clients like no other attorney I have done bussiness with in the past. Don't know what I would do without her assistance.

Jaya is à misleading attorney who makes you think that everthing is going great up until trial day she don't have the experience to handel serious case she once told a friend of my she wás afaid of a jury trial only a inexperience attorney would tell a cilent that or one that working with the state so if you want a tv lawyer then hire jaya But i would advise to do your research

I was sitting in jail with no bond. My wife called Jaya and I was out that same day. Going through the legal system was stressful. I was facing life in prison because of an incident that occurred while I was under the influence of drugs. Points I gathered as a young adult still haunted me and harmed my case. The state saw me as a habitual criminal, and wasn't interested in negotiating a plea. They wanted to go to trial. Jaya fought for me, always kept me in the loop, and reassured me about the case. Over the course of time, Jaya filed pre-trial motions that we won; which began to change the direction of the case. In the end, I was put on community control, with probation to follow.
I have since recommended Jaya to a friend who has a son who got himself into trouble. Guess what? He's at home too.
I am very grateful to Jaya for helping me with my case. Without her I wouldn't be a "free" man today, and watching the Rays with my son on TV.
