Jay, is not only a good attorney but also a good counselor. He did a great job in representing me in my divorce, he was transparent and always explained things and presented me with options. I trust him and his expertise.

I hired James in 2011 to represent me in my divorce and contested custody matter. My case was extremely complicated and lengthy lasting almost 22 months. James was knowledgeable, responsive, an excellent advocate, and extremely sensitive and patient to the many questions, as well as ups and downs I experienced throughout the long process. I would recommend James to anyone.

I have used James for both civil litigation and criminal defense with very favorable outcomes. He is a proven winner. I will continue to recommend him.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I highly recommend Jay. We have worked together as co-counsel and he represented our law firm in a complex matter and won the case. I wouldn't have hired him if I dint have complete confidence in his abilities and skill as a trial lawyer.
