When I got my first DWI, I was terrified at the consequences. When I got my second DWI a few months later, I thought my life was over. Luckily I hired Mr. Carey after my first one and he single handedly turned my life around and gave me a legitimate second chance. My first DWI got dropped to a careless driving, and my second one ended up only counting as my first DWI. No jail time, no ignition interlock. Lost my license for a very brief time but Jay made sure to help me get a work permit. I didn't lose my job and my life did not fall apart as most people's would've after getting arrested for DWI twice in a brief span of time. He even represented me in court at St. Cloud for my second which was quite a ways out of his way. I am truly thankful for having met this man and have since given up drinking completely to ensure I never need his help again!

I had the opportunity to work with Jay Carey for a vehicle violation incident in MN. He is the most honest and straight forward lawyersi have worked with ever. His advise is very meaningful and helped to resolve my case tremendously. His fees are very reasonable (compared to most lawyers i had researched) and is always a phone call away regards this case even post solving my case .
He is a true professional and i highly recommend him.
He is a class act.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to represent me.
Jay is highly informed and communicates well. From day one, Jay was willing to answer all my questions, spending more than an hour with me during a free consultation. Since it was my first time dealing with a DWI, this made me feel more comfortable and informed. He continued to explain things in an easy-to-understand way throughout each step of the process. He lowered the fees to make it affordable for me (four times less expensive than other representation I considered) and was willing to make a payment plan if need be.
He represented me incredibly well in court. The judge even remarked that his statement was the best presentation of a DWI case they had seen in a while. The results were better than I had hoped for: we won the criminal case (DWI charges were reduced to Careless Driving), and won the civil case (my license revocation was rescinded, aka my license wasn’t taken away). I am grateful that now there is officially no DWI on my legal or driving record.
Jay cares about his clients. He is human-centered and you can tell he does this work because he cares about his clients’ futures. Although I never wish any friends/family to be in a similar situation, if they were, I would recommend Jay whole-heartedly.

Jay is a smart and thorough advocate for his clients. He is meticulous in his analysis of the facts and carefully ensures that his clients' rights are protected no matter how difficult a given situation may be. I strongly recommend Jay to anyone in need of an aggressive and ethical criminal defense lawyer.
