I represent individuals and business owners in cases involving breach of contract, shareholder, partnership and other business disputes, consumer and investor fraud, personal injury and wrongful death. I guide clients through the legal process under some of the most trying circumstances they face, always governed by their best interests.
As a member of the State Bar of Georgia and Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, I am committed to the preservation of the civil justice system and the constitutional right to a jury trial. I am peer-rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating for ethics and skill, and was honored by recognition as one of Georgia's top plaintiff attorneys by Georgia Trend's 2009 Legal Elite publication. In addition to my law practice, I am a part-time instructor in the Kessler-Edison Trial Techniques Program and State Bar of Georgia Orientation on Professionalism at Emory University School of Law, as well as a Fellow of the Lawyers Foundation of Georgia.
While zealously representing my clients within the bounds of the law, I strive to uphold the highest standards of ethics and professionalism demanded of lawyers.

Jay Brownstein is one of a handful of attorneys I can recommend, without reservation, to handle complex business litigation. Jay has the experience, knowledge, and wisdom to handle these matters, and communicate with clients, in a professional, effective manner. I highly endorse this lawyer.
