A Madison County man was charged with home invasion for allegedly breaking into his girlfriend’s home at night and beating up two men who were present. Just 90 days after the first call to our office, we got the state to reduce the charge to a simple misdemeanor trespass. Our client faced up to 30 years in prison on a class X felony and ultimately walked away with a misdemeanor and some fines, thus allowing him to keep his job and avoid any jail time.
MANAGING ATTORNEY. Jaye R. Lindsay is a distinguished attorney with over ten years in the courtroom. He began his career with a large medical malpractice law firm in downtown Chicago, where he spent several years representing nursing home residents and others who suffered serious or fatal injuries due to negligent care. His career took him into contested probate and guardianship litigation, as well as high-stakes personal injury litigation. 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. Jaye focuses primarily on nursing home abuse, auto accidents, civil litigation, and criminal defense. He also accepts a limited number of divorce and custody cases each year. As the firm has grown, Jaye continues to remain actively engaged in daily litigation on behalf of the firm's clients.
