About me

Jay Salamon is a Securities Attorney with the firm Hermann, Cahn & Schneider, LLP. Jay graduated with honors from Kent State University in 1977 and is a 1980 graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law.  His exceptional research skills and his talent for drafting clear and persuasive legal arguments are core elements in our firm’s success.


Research and writing are essential parts of the practice of law, and the quality of a lawyer’s work in these areas often is pivotal to the outcome. Jay has for more than three decades devoted nearly 100% of his time to perfecting these skills.  He researches complex and sometimes unresolved issues of law and writes most of the significant briefs and memoranda that are filed on our client’s behalf.  Over the years, he frequently has been retained by other lawyers and law firms to assist them with strategy and to prepare written arguments in difficult legal matters.


Jay’s securities practice is devoted exclusively to the representation of investors injured by stockbrokers, investment advisors, insurance agents, and other investment professionals. He is rated AV® Preeminentby Martindale-Hubbell®.   A long time member of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association (PIABA), Jay has authored articles for and served as a one of the original editors of the PIABA Bar Journal, a nationally distributed quarterly journal covering the practice of securities arbitration and issues related to the representation of injured investors.
