Personal injury
Our family hired Jay Sadd concerning a personal injury case for a family member, that became for lack of a better term, "complicated". From our first meeting, we realized that the "complications" we were facing were solvable problems for Jay and his team. Very thankful for the standard of excellence that is presented by this law firm

Outstanding Legal Representation
Jay Sadd is an accomplished and experienced attorney who represented me in a personal injury case. I strongly recommend and endorse Jay and his staff for legal representation. No detail goes unnoticed and it is evident from the beginning of the process, it is the client's best interest they represent. The communicate frequently and are timely in responding to any request. Also, they explain every step of the process and answer any questions patiently. My case was successfully litigated and I am delighted with the outcome.

Injury Attorney that helped through a tough time
After a horrible car accident involving a tractor trailer I found myself in need of an attorney. I am thankful that the name of Jay and his team were provided to me, and that he was able to work on my case. The process of seeking justice and of me healing took a tremendous amount of time, but now that it is over, I am thankful that I had Jay on my side throughout the entire process.

A Heart-felt Thank you!
Nov 2014, one of the worse months of my life. Motorcycle accidents are NEVER fun; doubly so at the beginning of Winter. I had never needed a Lawyer before, so I was completely lost on what would be the first step. From the moment Jay visited me in the hospital, I knew I was in Good Hands. He was a referral from a coworker. He talked me through the process of keeping records of my experience, the importance of keeping a journal, for my case, and for my sanity! It was a long process and there were small hiccups, but I never lost faith in Jay and his team. I trusted that they had my best interests in mind. My patience was rewarded with the Best Possible Outcome for me case! I was beyond pleased with their efforts and prompt delivery of necessary paperwork. I pray I never need a lawyer again... but if I need one, I'd go back to Jay.

Personal Injury Review
In 2012 my son and I were involved in an auto accident, and shortly after I found my self in need of a personal injury attorney for the first time in my life. With my inexperience in these matters I sought out a local attorney. In short as it turned out, this attorney referred me to another attorney, which led to poor results. At this point I learned about the Law Firm of Slappey & Sadd. I turned my case over to this firm and they picked up the ball and got me the help I was looking for and resolved my case in short order. If you should ever find yourself needing a personal injury attorney, I strongly recommend The Law Firm of Slappey & Sadd. I truly appreciate the level of professionalism and kindness I was shown through out this process. Special thanks to Jay Sadd and Edward Wynn. Sincerely, Marty

Fantastic experience with an expert firm.
Jay and his team treated my relatively small case as though it was the most important one they had. Their expertise and professionalism made me feel like I was in the right place from day one. Jays easy-to-be-with nature helped my wife and I relax during the most difficult periods in our process and our outcome was better than I had hoped.

A "Master" in the courtroom
It is with pleasure that I tell a story of one of the greatest trial lawyers I have observed in forty-five years at the bar. When I was injured, yours was among the few names I thought about to represent me in the litigation that was surely coming. I had seen you in action as I mediated cases in which you represented one of the parties and knew you to be aggressive, fair and highly competent. I was impressed with the way in which you guided the court and opposing counsel toward your theory of the case. Where the defense team sought complexity, you advocated simplicity. It was not until we began to prepare for trial, however, that I saw the great detail you managed and the energy you brought to bear. Your team was simply amazing.. The efficient trial of a major personal injury case is an art form, one in which the case must be orchestrated like a grand ballet at the Bolshoi Theater. Jay, you were the finest conductor I’ve seen in the courtroom, a true master. Your cross examination of the defendant’s expert was pure genius. Your summation was impassioned and spoke the truth, a truth the jury was anxious to accept. When the jury brought home a verdict of more than $ 7.6 million, I was astounded. In a word, you were “extraordinary.”
