Jay is an excellent attorney. Countless defense lawyers and witnesses have tried to pull one over him when it comes to construction site accidents, but are ultimately unsuccessful. In a case that Clifford Horwitz, Jay Luchsinger, and Michael Carter tried and secured the largest verdict in Illinois history, Jay's experience as an ironworker played an invaluable role. Some Rockford ironworkers joined with the defense team and tried to slip a lie past him a regarding the construction site. Jay caught them and it ultimately helped lead to a victory in the case.
Mitchell Horwitz Workers compensation Attorney
I have been trying cases for over 20 years with Jay. It has been a distinct honor and pleasure. On many occasions I have observed witnesses on the witness stand attempt to fool or manipulate him and each time to my amazement, they have failed. Jay's in-depth knowledge of the construction and mechanics fields have repeatedly been put to the test and every time, Jay prevails. Jay and I have never lost a case that we have tried together and never received a jury verdict less than our final demand. Not only that, but Jay is a kind and outstanding human being. Clients love his fiery personality, hard work, and dedication.
