    I endorse this lawyer's work. Jay is a terrific attorney. He is certainly one of the brightest rising stars in our legal community. He is smart, energetic, aggressive and fearless. He has tried more jury trials in his few years of practice than many attorneys who have been practicing for decades. I am constantly impressed by his ability to clearly and directly identify and address the issues. He has taken on some pretty big cases for an attorney with so few years out of school and while he is co counsel or co-defendant counsel on some of these, he always carries his own weight and often more.
