Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Nicholas William Richardson

    Jay works toward agreements that best suit the needs of his clients with a keen understanding of how Illinois law works and what is and isn’t possible. I’m sure his clients value his perspective on potential outcomes of their cases.

  • Michael A. Meschino

    I endorse this lawyer. He is a stand up guy. Jay has a dry sense of humor that some people miss and mistake as surliness. However, his head is always in the correct direction and he has the proper amount of Midwestern laid back personality while getting his point or points across.
