    I endorse this lawyer's work. Jay is a true professional. He maintains a pleasant relationship with opposing counsel while vehemently protecting his clients rights. It is my observation that he is well respected by lawyers and Juges. Personally I find him to be practical, creative and bright. I have recommended a number of clients to him on criminal matters which is another area of expertise for him.
