This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Devoted, honest, respectful, and an absolute expert in his field.
Over the years, Mr. Wolfson has consulted me on a labyrinth of legal issues, ranging from healthcare to employment law, and he has represented me on multiple occasions. When you call, he will always be the one who answers the phone.

Jay Wolfson, esq., a lawyer with compassion as well as ability.
Mr. Wolfson, has been my attorney on multiple healthcare-associated legal matters. I was impressed by his wealth of knowledge and tenacity in pursuing these difficult cases. No matter how complex the case was, Mr. Wolfson strived arduously to resolve the matter in my favor. Although there were multiple lawyers involved with one particular case, Mr. Wolfson graciously took a lead position and successfully managed these lawyers resulting in an expeditious as well as a successful conclusion to the case. Despite being a solo practitioner, Mr. Wolfson has demonstrated an uncanny ability to gather and analyze the legal facts of the case so as to effectively and efficaciously manage the healthcare matter and to minimize his billings. To date, I have not been able to find any attorney, notwithstanding the specialty of law practiced, as capable as Jay Wolfson in assessing a case as quickly and as thoroughly in order to complete the matter at hand so that his client will be spared the usual and inordinate cost of litigation. Therefore, I unhesitatingly recommend Mr. Wolfson to anyone seeking a competent and knowledgeable attorney who serves his client with compassion and understanding unequal in today's legal arena.
