I have been using Jay as needed for more than 20 years. He's always been upfront on costs and expectations. He explains and does what he says he will do. I felt the need to post as the other negatives do not do him justice.

First off he is so unorganized it's not funny
He tried to get me to accept a guilty plea and do time in jail on a case that a much better lawyer later got reduced to a fine of $250.
He was ale to court at the first hearing and couldn't remember my name when the case was called
Whatever you due run from this guy he is the worst lawyer I have ever known a complete 0

He didn't treat me like his time was worth more than mine and talked to me like a peer rather than a "less than informed" client. He was very understanding and at the same time forthright about those things that I would have to accept and grin and bear. He was open about fees and was informative about options.

I wouldn't recommend this attorney to anyone, not even if they were using him to sue ME! Very very poor communication, changed terms during his representation of us, left out many many KEY components to questions that we had, failed to tell us that some of our lenders had contacted him, on several occasions. When asking how to handle certain situations, we would get a simple explanation then when it would come time to handle said situation, the way to go about it changed, and some necessary information was left out all together. Simply a horrible experience all around.

My wife and I are college educated smart individuals but we have never created estate documents. We also have experienced some ugly family probate issues so took our estate planning exercise very seriously. We felt very rushed at our signing appointment. It was communicated to us that it appeared we had more questions than he had time. Also, Nixon had a gift of making us feel stupid on several occasions. Lawyers are in the customer service and document production business. I wouldn’t recommend Nixon to walk my dog, let alone create critical family legal docs.
