Unexpected pleasure
Having decided to rewrite my will, I had to find a qualified attorney. After asking around and not finding anyone, I went online to look up lawyers in my area and read reviews. There were several that sounded good but either didn’t take the time to call me or requested that I make an appointment at $300 an hour. Jay Fox was very gracious. He called me within an hour or two and we talked for maybe 20 minutes to a half hour. He assured me that he didn’t charge for this initial consultation, only if I decided to enlist his services. He was so helpful and detail oriented, unlike me. He thought of everything that I didn’t. He turned an unpleasant chore into a satisfying outcome. I highly recommend this man.

Very helpful, knowledgeable, accessible
Atty. Jay Fox, is very helpful, knowledgeable and we are very glad that we came across his profile when we were searching on how to start the process of getting trust and will. We could tell that he is very experienced and that he made the process as easy as possible. We could tell that he devoted his time in explaining things to us. We were very intimidated in starting the process but he made us feel reassured and he answered all of our questions. He was available when we needed changes to our documents, very honest and definitely professional. I have recommended him to my friends, coworkers and relatives. He understood our concerns and limitations (being first time in creating trust/ will ). We are extremely grateful that we found him and that he was able to help us with our trust and will creation.

We Are Happy We Worked With Jay Fox
We were very please working with Jay Fox. He is helpful, patient and thorough. I appreciated the time he took to answer all the questions we had about creating our wills. We had put off getting our wills completed for a long time. We are happy we worked with Jay.

Knowledgeable, Thorough, Responsive
A few years ago, Mr Fox prepared wills for our family. Although we hadn't communicated since then, recently I needed legal help and time was of the essence. Due to the lack of a particular verbiage in the deed to our home, I realized I had to go through probate. I was not only surprised, but also stressed because timeliness was important and I wanted to streamline the sale process. I contacted Mr. Fox and that same day he initiated the necessary paperwork with comprehensive instructions. He guided me through the process which is now complete. I can't be more thankful for his services. He was quick to respond, maintains excellent communication, is kind, and thorough. I highly recommend Mr. Fox.

Help with Trust documents
Mr. Fox did an excellent job updating our trust and associated documents. He has the ability to communicate in a way that helps one to understand, yet not feel inadequate! I highly recommend his services.

Great lawyer
Jay went above and beyond to update wills and other documents for my wife and I. After the will signing, he continued to assist with altering contingent beneficiary forms to reflect the establishment of a trust in our wills. He put in a lot of time with my wife and I for a very reasonable price. Very professional service.

Outstanding Attorney! Brought me and my family peace of mind.
I would rate Jay more than excellent if I could. Before meeting him, I had a different opinion about lawyers and Jay proved me wrong. He is the most dedicated, talented, reliable and ethical person I know. I hired him for a specific matter and he went above and beyond my expectations. I’ve also consulted with him regarding several other issues and he’s always been clear and exact with his answers and gave me a realistic outlook on what to expect. Jay is such a great listener and hence his outstanding analysis of my situations and perfect advice on how to handle them. Jay has also traveled to meet me at places that are convenient for me at times that work for my schedule. While we all hope we’d never need legal help, life happens. I know I am in good hands when I contact Jay for my legal needs and I would recommend him for people I care about.

We can sleep better at night!
Jay was very effective and efficient at explaining each step in the process of updating our wills. He worked us through the reasons we had procrastinated in the past and explained the legal reasons why it was better to do things one way over another. He also did not charge a fee for a Power of Attorney or Advance Directive for Health Care. We are very happy to have all these legal documents in place thanks to Jay!

Fantastic Trust Attorney
Jay was extremely helpful in doing our trust. He took ample time to explain complex trust terms and made me and my wife feel very comfortable dealing with our lives in front of him. His experience led to many valuable recommendations to improve our trust for us and for our heirs. Jay is the guy for your next detailed estate planning session.

Trust/Will
Consulted and then hired Mr Fox to draw up my will. Attentive to my requests and very thorough in drawing up my final trust and will documents. Discussed all points outlined in will and answered all questions. Would highly recommend his services.

Excellent attorney
Jay Fox is an incredible attorney. He helped my husband and I put together our Will and Trust for our family. Jay listened intently, very easy to get a hold of and responsive; and took the time to understand the concerns we had to advise appropriately. We had looked at other attorneys, none of which came close to the thoughtfulness and respect Jay had for our situation. He is fair and trustworthy and a clear expert in his field. I would recommend him over and over again.

Family Trust Preparation
My wife and I used Jay's legal services to prepare a family trust. Jay did an outstanding job. He asked good questions to get a clear understanding of our personal situation and what we wanted to achieve for our children. He quickly responded to our questions and had all of the documents prepared and ready for signature in less than 3 weeks. It would have been sooner if we had not been tardy in our review. Jay is easy to work with and included a thorough review of our existing will and powers of attorney as part of the all-inclusive, trust package price. He came in exactly on budget, within the timeline promised and at a price that was better than most. I could not ask for more. I strongly recommend Jay as your attorney of choice for family law matters.

Estate planning
We were recommend to Jay by our financial planner to assist us with our estate planning. Jay is very knowledgeable and was extremely helpful in helping us navigate the intricacies and complexities of estate planning and the pros and cons of the various approaches to protecting our estate. Based on this process we moved forward with creating a family trust based on the protections it affords my wife and myself along with our children and grandchildren. Jay guided us through all of the steps, managed the formation of the trust and assisted us in moving our assets into the trust. I would highly recommend Jay to those in search of and in need of a highly competent advocate in this process.
