Attorney at Law
"Julia Jayne helped me get out of a real mess, false accusations, and defamation, from a previous amorous relationship gone bad.Upon seeing the outstanding reviews, I immediately called Julia Mezhinsky Jayne 's office. From the outset, Julia was professional, motivated, most knowledgeable, and as sharp as they come. Were it not for her, I would have been lost in the labyrinth of this nasty legal system. Julia is definitely the first person I recommend."
"I can't say enough great things about Julia. She is hands down the most understanding, smart and effective attorney I've ever had. I was facing serious charges that could have led to substantial consequences, and Julia was able to work the case to achieve an unbelievable result for me. Julia's a former prosecutor and the knowledge and experience she gained from years on the other side clearly show in her work. She commands a lot of respect from judges and prosecutors and other defense attorneys. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone in need of an excellent criminal defense lawyer."
