About Jeremy

Learn Jeremy’s areas of practice.

JEREMY E. ABAY represents whistleblowers, employees, consumers, and corporations in high-stakes litigation in state and federal courts. His practice covers healthcare fraud (qui tam), wage litigation, and consumer fraud. He has obtained multimillion-dollar settlements for taxpayers, misclassified workers, and victims of consumer fraud.

Mr. Abay has pioneered False Claims Act liability based on Medicare and Medicaid secondary payer violations. He brought the first qui tam case to successfully argue that an auto insurer could be liable under the False Claims Act for causing Medicare and Medicaid to pay claims before no-fault insurance. After the government declined to intervene, Mr. Abay reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with the auto insurer.

Mr. Abay is currently lead plaintiff’s counsel in Razak v. Uber Techs., Inc., the first case in which a federal circuit court has found—on summary judgment—that gig-economy drivers may be employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act. 951 F.3d 137 (3d Cir. 2020).

Mr. Abay has been recognized as a Rising Star in class action litigation by SuperLawyers.

Mr. Abay is also an adjunct professor at Rutgers Law School, where he teaches deposition advocacy. He has also guest lectured in the business torts seminar. Before his legal career, Jeremy worked at Johnson & Johnson and Barclay’s Capital, where he gained unique insight into corporate compliance programs.

Mr. Abay earned his J.D. from Rutgers School of Law as a merit-based scholarship recipient. During law school, he served as research assistant to former Associate Dean Adam Scales, analyzing emerging trends in tort theory and insurance law. He received the Don F. D’Aqui Esquire Memorial Award at graduation for achieving the highest average in and displaying the greatest aptitude for tort law.

Class Act
Jeremy represented me in a recent legal matter. I was impressed with his professionalism not only with me, but also with opposing counsel. Even when our adversary combative, Jeramy remained in control emotionally and professionally, and was successfully able to lay out our case to the judge. I would recommend Jeremy to my family and friends.

Consummate Professional
Mr. Abay helped me with a litigious matter that I felt lost in. His depth of knowledge and understanding of the law, in addition to his ability to explain it, is unsurpassed. His track record of success speaks for itself. His communication and timeliness speaks volumes towards his character as a lawyer. I’d recommend Mr. Abay to my family and closest friends without hesitation.

Jeremy Abay proved his mettle
Jeremy became my attorney when the previous one with whom I was working was no longer handling my case. Switching attorneys while a case is ongoing is unsettling to say the least; but in no time at all, Jeremy put any fear I had to rest. In fact, it was clear that he was going to run circles around my previous attorney. He was quick to action and explained everything that was happening as we moved along. I was never in the dark, and there was no question he didn't answer. He is knowledgeable and patient and an excellent communicator. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend Jeremy Abay and would surely work with him again in the future.

Good to have on your side when facing a company with deep pockets....
Being from out of state, I was recommend to Jeremy from a friend for an issue: Jeremy Abay was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a quick satisfactory resolution at a reasonable cost seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to successfully defend us from an unjust accusation without having to sacrifice my reputation from a past employer with deep pockets in the community, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and help to always curb expectations and outcomes of actions we took on each step of the process. My family and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Jeremy Abay without reservation when dealing with a employee vs employer issue.

A CLASS ACT
During my first meeting with Jeremy Abay, I instantly felt acknowledged. Upon learning of the firm's & Mr. Abay's successes, I was truly astounded by his understanding & interest in wanting to "fight" for my son and me. Our case was very serious and involved measures of which I'd never imagined, therefore, I was extremely nervous. Jeremy stood by me every step of the way, eased my tensions and ensured that I was in great hands. Jeremy maintained contact with me throughout and if I did happen to have any questions, Mr. Abay always replied to me in less than half an hour (and that's awesome for a busy attorney). In a nutshell, Jeremy Abay is a no-nonsense, go-getter, thorough, "pit bull" (compliment intended), client-compassionste, class act lawyer, hands down. In closing, Jeremy extended stellar respect towards me and that personally, carries more weight for me than his WIN for my son's & my case. SDS

Great, client-focused attorney!
Jeremy is knowledgable and puts his client's interests first. He initially advised me on how I could represent myself so as to maximize my portion of the settlement, and then represented me at a very fair fee when I realized that was the route I wanted to go. Working with Jeremy was a pleasure and I recommend his services strongly.

Extremely Smart and Knowledable
I had the pleasure of having Mr Jeremy Abay represent me in at first a class action lawsuit in regards to lost wages owed to me. Throughout the entire process he kept me informed and broke down everything that was happening. He is extremely smart, out smarting the competitors . Extremely professional and knowledable . He will fight hard for you and put in the work and time. At first they tried to dismiss my case however Jeremy did not stop there. He appealed it and WON. We ultimately settled out of court and I was paid the wages I was owed. Couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to represent me .

Met him 2 years ago thru our association and discuss my situation. First time ever met someone who was more interested winning than asking for money. May God bless him for all he do for people like me. he isnt only a good and smart lawyer but also a great human being.

Never a quitter and always positive
Jeremy is a lawyer that will take your case seriously all the way through the process and he will clearly communicate the case in a very specific manner which makes the content more easy for you to understand. Even if you started off in despair, he is surely a lawyer that will take over the mess of another lawyer and make it better without a doubt. You will feel like he is truly looking at things in your best interest. Also, he puts much effort in his work. I, more than highly, recommend him from what he has helped me with.
