Civil and Criminal Defense Attorney
Jaya Balani is a partner with the NeJame Law Firm. Born and raised in the Orlando area. Ms. Balani earned her Bachelor's Degree from the University of Central Florida and later went on to earn her law degree from Florida A&M University College of Law in Orlando. Ms. Balani began her legal career as a Legal Intern with NeJame Law, a position she held during her last two years of law school.
As an intern, Ms. Balani worked closely with all of the partners on a wide range of state and federal criminal cases. She demonstrated an impressive work ethic, gaining valuable real world experience and training in the process, and ultimately developed a strong interest in criminal defense work. Her dedication and commitment to the Firm earned Ms. Balani an associate position upon graduation, and her continued success quickly led to her becoming partner.
Today, Jaya Balani devotes much of her practice to criminal defense work. However, she also has an extensive business background and, as such, works closely with the Firm's other partners in the civil division in the area of business law and business litigation. She has experience in real estate foreclosures, contract disputes, commercial disputes, and bankruptcy, as well as estates and trusts.
Ms. Balani enjoys staying involved in the legal community, as well. She was recently elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and also serves on the Board of Directors of the Criminal Section of the Orange County Bar Association.
