I first met Jay as a prosecutor and he was on the opposing side of a case. I was impressed with how diligently he represented and advocated for his client. So many other defense attorneys won't fight for their clients but Jay will and because of this I've seen him achieve some incredible results. I endorse Mr. Volquardsen.
