Mr. Brown did a great job. He responded to my calls and emails promptly, kept me informed, did his homework, was well prepared for and won my case. I don't think a better lawyer could have been found.

A former customer had outstanding invoices for manufacturing work performed and product delivered about which they disagreed. Despite repeated requests by our company personnel, there was no response or even acknowledgement of our requests to discuss settlement.
We contacted Mr. Brown and after a review of our information, he agreed to act as our attorney in the matter. Despite communication from Mr. Brown, the former customer failed to respond, so Mr. Brown filed a complaint. This action resulted in a response, then some meetings between the two businesses in an effort to resolve the issue.
When the meetings failed to resolve the issue, the two parties met in a facilitation setting at Mr. Brown's suggestion, which ultimately resulted in a settlement outside of court. The settlement was mutually unsatisfactory to both parties, so it was a good settlement.
During the entire process (approximately 6 months) Mr. Brown kept us immediately current on the status of correspondence and communications, and offered his legal opinions of how the issue might be settled.
Mr. Brown was direct and straightforward in all aspects of the process, and was a man of his word throughout. We would not hesitate to employ Mr. Brown in other legal matters within his areas of practice.

I worked with Jay for about 7 months (2010) to settle a dispute concerning a buy-out contract for a family owned business. From the start Jay was excellent. He took the time to review my issues and the appropriate law before telling me that he thought he would be able to help me. - From the start Jay listened to what I had to say, was a wise voice of reason, he explained the relevant legal issues, and he successfully resolved my claim.
