  • Thomas A McAvity

    Juan has a well deserved reputation as a patient and caring bankruptcy lawyer. He looks to his clients' needs first and puts in countless hours on their behalf. My experience is that everyone at his office is focused on getting the best possible results for the firm's clients.

  • Richard Kerr Gustafson

    I have a lot of respect and admiration for Jay and I strongly recommend him. He is intelligent, efficient, practical, creative, and I've rarely seen an attorney grasp complex bankruptcy issues as quickly and thoroughly as Jay in my 18 years of practice. Jay has already handled more bankruptcy cases in his short legal career than most lawyers I know who have practiced for 30 years. Most importantly, Jay is a wonderful person who cares for his clients and it shows in his work.
