Elder Abuse - Dismissal

A woman was charged with abusing an elderly person for leaving the senior in her garage overnight in cold weather. Upon further investigation, the attorney learned that the senior had a long criminal record, which included fraud, forgery, and similar crimes of dishonesty. Despite no criminal record, the state was unwilling to offer anything that would keep a conviction off the defendant's record. After months of aggressive representation, the state eventually dismissed the charges, recognizing that the defendant did not meet the requirements of the law to be charged with the crime, and the victim's allegations did not match the evidence.

Throughout his career, Jaye has worked for large firms and handled enormous caseloads. When he decided to start Crossroad Legal, his vision was a family practice that would be large enough to make a difference but small enough to remain focused on individual client experiences.

As the firm has grown, Jaye continues to remain actively engaged in daily litigation on behalf of the firm's clients.
