Madelyn Jaye, known as MJ around the Mandel Law Firm, believes that a winning effort begins with careful preparation – that the results you achieve are in direct proportion to the effort you apply. Some cases are easy to win. That is not where the challenges of great lawyering lie.
There are other cases where success does not come from holding a good hand, but rather in playing a poor hand well. Those cases, and those challenges, bring out the warrior in Madelyn Jaye. She is a fierce competitor practicing by the oft quoted doctrine of Vince Lombardi.
Madelyn Jaye is a seasoned warrior when it comes to the world of litigation. She has played, and prevailed, in the game of high stakes, high profile, complex litigation, since graduating from the prestigious Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
She has brought the skills she has learned in those fiercely competitive arenas, practicing in the trenches with some of the nation’s foremost litigators, to The Mandel Law Firm with somewhat astonishing success – turning around cases previously thought to be lost causes and winning cases others thought unwindable.
Madelyn Jaye believes that litigators are first and foremost story tellers. They must convince their audience, whether that audience be a judge, jury, or adversary, that the story they are telling is the only true story and the ending they are proposing the only right ending. Madelyn Jaye brings her experience from the worlds of theater and film as well as her background in psychology to the practice of law.
