About Me

Mr. E. Jay Abt has 20 years of legal experience in criminal defense of all serious felony charges and major crimes, including over 50 jury trials to verdict in major felony cases for charges such as murder, rape, child molestation, armed robbery, drug trafficking, kidnapping, and other aggravated felonies. Mr. Abt has also represented individuals who are inexperienced to the criminal justice system who lead good and productive lives.  These people make a simple mistake in their lives which can be emotionally costly, damaging to their reputation, and permanently affect their livelihood, family affairs and professions.  We strive to undo this damage and return them to their state of normalcy through effective, dedicated and professional representation.

  • John Michael Phillips

    Jay absolutely knows nothing about what he speaks. He just analyzed a Florida State law claim, under inappropriate federal law, screaming that the woman had no case against a sovereign entity while utterly and completely ignoring 768.28 and a body of case law that holds that she does. Make sure he's better prepared for your case. He was certainly dead wrong there.
