Jay is honorted to be appointed by federal judges as a Receiver in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia for cases involving securities fraud and Ponzi-type schemes upon the recommendation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Serving as both both Receiver and lead trial and appellate counsel in "claw back" actions filed in federal courts acrosse the country, Jay has sucessfullly recovered millions of dollars of assets on behalf of defrauded investors victimized by various types of fraud, misconduct, and Ponzi schemes. In addition to serving as lead trial counsel in receivership litigation, Jay oversees the return of these recovered assets directly to defrauded investors through an administrative claims process in the Receivership Court.
Jay is also an accomplished appellate advocate who has succeeded for his clients in the state and federal appellate courts of Georgia and is licensed to practice in the United States Supreme Court. In the first appellate case in Georgia to address nursing home arbitration agreements, Jay defeated a nursing home’s efforts to force the case to arbitration. After winning in the trial court, Jay convinced the Georgia Court of Appeals to broaden the trial court's favorable ruling on appeal to help preserve the right to a jury trial for all Georgia nursing home residents and their families. See Ashburn Health Care Center Inc. v. Poole, 286 Ga. App. 24, 648 S.E.2d 430 (2007).

In 2018, Jay was appointed as a Cobb County Special Assistant District Attorney to represent the State of Georgia in a groundbreaking legal action that made successful and novel use of Georgia's nuisance laws to hold accountable an area hotel notorious for allowing human trafficking on its premises. The successful resolution of this novel action and the media coverage it received will deter other hotels from allowing human trafficking activities on their property and serve as a model for additional legal actions against those that do.
Jay is a frequent presenter at legal seminars and continuing education classes on all of these topics and is a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Cobb County Bar Association, and the Cobb County Trial Lawyers Association, serving as its President in 2007 and 2008.
