This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the State Bar of Michigan to understand the reasons for disbarment.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

It was common not to get return calls and to be told that they filed though they had not. I got garnished several times long after they were paid in full and they did not provide protection as promised. I had to take the bankruptcy course 3 times as they failed to file before the expiration dates. I eventually contacted a malpractice law firm and the attorney there was very helpful and contacted the firm on my behalf by phone and in writing. This got things moving a little, although it seemed my only recourse was to file a grievance with the board. I kept asking the firm to please file as soon as possible for years. I am now discharged. Worst of the worst. Should I wast my time and file a greivance I don't think they even care or they would do their job better.

Jay helped me a lot and I'm glad I hired him. I was working two jobs and could barely keep up with my bills and was deep in debt. I had to struggle just to get to work with the price of gas and struggled financially taking care of my kids. It was a lengthy process but I really did not have to do much jay did mostly all the work which was less stressful in the long run. All in all I will be going back to his as my Attorney if I ever have any more problems in the future.

Hired Mr. Welch for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Mr. Welch offers and executes excellent legal advice and representation. His attention to detail, extensive knowledge of the law and one's rights, combines with his strong positive spirit, uplifting and turning cases upside down for dismissals and monumental outcomes. I couldn't be more pleased with how he conducts his practice. Having an amazing office support was a huge benefactor. This allowed me to easily discuss my case in detail at any given time while also providing detailed updates, reminders, and important questions relative to my case. I can say that he goes above and beyond for every case he obtains and I highly recommend hiring him for any legal matters. He's not only professional but is genuinely a good spirited determined man that prepares to represent his clients in the most favorable outcomes using extensive research and facts that are truly benefactors in dismissing your case. I would recommend Mr. Welch to my family, friends. I can't thank him enough.
