3.5 stars 14 totalReview Jason Rolloff
Posted by Stcloudsuperman
You get what you pay for and with jay that couldn't be more fitting. Hired him through a friend because he was dirt cheap. There is a reason hes dirt cheap. Think about it. Initially comes across as a nice likeable guy who seems fairly knowledgeable and professional but dont fall for it. He lost a ridiculously easy cases for me, a disorderly conduct that got dropped to a petty misdemeanor. Should have been an automatic freedom of speech violation. Didnt have enough sense to request a judge that wasnt a femminist man hating judge first off all and couldnt defend his way out of a wet paper bag. 2nd case i recently hired him was another disorderly conduct and another obvious 1st amendment violation. Yeah he is easy to negotiate a payment plan with but you will regret the few hundred you wasted on him. I would have been a better lawyer than him. He knew i was recovering from a car accident and waiting for a large settlement so we agreed i would pay him 250.00 when i got my settlement which would be a couple more months but before i got my settlement at a initial hearing he demanded i pay him whatever money i had in my wallet which was 20.00 bucks and had to last me the rest of the month because of work restrictions . He said he needed gas money because he had to go out of his way to meet me at court. When i gave it to him and saidvi would deduct it from what i owe he made a smart ass remark about i owed him a freebie anyhow and made me feel like if i didnt give him my last 20 and not let him have a it as a gift he may not continue to represent me. We decided to file a probable cause motion which we lost. I told him i wanted him to file a first amendment violation motion which clearly it represented. He kept telling me he couldnt and that the probable cause mption was already filed and was the same thing. He lied because he didnt want to do the work of filing it and mentioned to me prior in a joking matter that he would be representing me more vigorously if he was paid more money. I thought he was joking but thats why he refused to make an effort on my behalf. I also asked him to request a different judge and he acted bewildered and confused and said he didnt think he could. He was playing dumb with me and i knew it. I was trying to tell him how to do his job and argued with him and he would just smirk and laugh and play stupid. I could see the writing on the wall and see he was setting me up for a loss deliberately so luckily i asked the judge if i could fire jay and request a public defender which i was elegible and granted thank God. I regret paying him 100.00 more for the silly mickey mouse slapstick he preformed but actually felt sorry for him. Personal observation he seemed like he was on crack or meth and was strung out..talking to himself and cracking jokes and seemed confused even bewildered, in another world. Was ignoring me and lying to me and refusing to do his job. He was just squirrely and dont know if he was in his right mind to defend me even if he wanted to. I also heard about his peeping tom taking pic of some lady next to him in the dressing room charge a few years back and put 2 and 2 together and realised his reputation with the courts might also be damaged and affect his representation. I didnt give a crap about that but i did give a crap about his ethics and his representation and how he treated me. I dont know if he should even practise law. Even if you are desperate i would avoid him at all costs. May even be some ethical charges raised against him with the Mn bar association. He violated my trust and his oath and duty as a licensed attorney and anybody that deliberatly misinforms and lies to you and doesnt do his job and defends you but seems like hes more interested in helping you lose or fighting against you should not only lose their license to practise but get his nose rearranged. Hes a good actor and a player but hes a wolf in sheeps clothing. Two faced, backstabbing .

I hired Jay thinking he could do better than I or a public defender could, but your better off on your own, I lost a pretty easy case, it's your life, don't do what I did.

Retained by another person who was fighting my restraining order. I still have my exactly what I had before, more to use the next time, and he negotiated the return of my property, and the other person paid for it. Would hire him myself.

Jay did what he said he would. I'm pleased with my outcome though it's not perfect. He didn't BS me. Told me like it was. But ultimately helped tremendously. Thanks Jay.

Jay is a nice Guy But I am not satisfied with what I ended up for The county didn't have any proof But I could have done as well by my self Some lawyers get right in their and should have the knowledge But this wasn't the case The recording had a blank spot where you can tell it was messed with along with the county lied They county along with J handed me a stack of papers and told me to pick out my sentence I told Jay I didn't like any of it he told me to take the lesser which still hurt me for the rest of my life. All I can say is I was not happy with Jay

I've never in my life felt compelled to write a review, that being said Jason Rolloff came recommended by another attorney who was to busy to take on my case. Hiring him was the biggest mistake I ever made...getting a straight answer was like pulling teeth. Not only was he not proactive in my criminal case, he belittled me and kept me out of the look on my own case. I went in thinking this was a slam dunk. I was wrong. 4 months in fired him due to lack of engagement or progress. I felt like I was throwing money at the problem and needed to get out before it got worse. Needless to say, I moved on to another attorney and was happy I did. No telling what would have happened had I stayed with Mr. Rolloff. I paid him for the hours he put in and that will be the last time we do business together.

My daughter and I retained Jay after contacting him about a pending arraignment. Jay didn't promise us the world, but guided us in being prepared and calming us down. He made both my daughter and myself comfortable and explained the process throughly. Even in emailing late at night and on weekends with questions, Jay immediately responded. I would highly recommend Jay. We had a very favorable outcome and through it all he was thoughtful and insightful and ultimately did an excellent job representing my daughter.

Very bad lawyer. He doesn't know anything in his field. I used him as my attorney and he never had answers for my questions, nor any recommendations other than what could be the shortest route to get the case closed. Sorry, but I will not recommend him. Waste of money. ITS YOUR LIFE!! Make sure you get the best guy.

This is not my first case. I have worked with lawyers who promised the world and never delivered. I felt ripped off. Jay talked to me like a human being and gave me the good, the bad, and the ugly about my case. he also made himself available when I called or texted. I was probably sunk for the get-go. But, I got a fair outcome becuse i did the things that Jay suggested. It could've been a lot worse.

Caught a theft charge; made a stupid shoplifting mistake. Not only did Jay help keep it off of my record, he was also able to spare me any trips to court. And, his fee didn't make this situation worse, bearing in mind that I was out of work at the time. He listened to me. He did what he said he would. Always there fore me.
