About Jay

Learn Jay’s areas of practice.

I was born in and have lived in the Everett/Seattle area all of my life.  I have worked as the prosecutor for the City of Arlington.  I have also run the felony diversion program in Snohomish County.  However, most of my work has been in the area of family law.  

 

In my spare time (when I have any), I like to paint and go on motorcycle rides.

An attorney with your best interest in mind!
For over 2 years, Mr. Neff worked with me to help me get full custody of my children and away from my ex's toxic home. He answered every question (I emailed A LOT!) and only had my best interest at heart. His years' of experience showed in the courtroom. If you want to win your case, I recommend Mr. Neff!!

Pleased with the results
I hired Jay for my family law case. I am thorough and ask a lot of questions. There was 1 point in time where I questioned if I had made the right choice, so I reached out and confronted Jay on some of the issues I had. His response made complete sense and I then understood why he was going the route, or advising the way he was. Once I understood this, I had a different appreciation for the success in my divorce (specifically the parenting plan). My daughter's best interest is what was most important to me and he helped me attain as close to that as possible, while still being fair.

Help me get my kids
My ex-husband had a major drinking problem. I needed to get the children away from him and get a new parenting plan. It was an ugly fight because my ex lied about everything. But, we were able to get my children. I was very happy.

He did a good job for me.
My exhusband was trying to take my children away from me. Mr. Neff took my case and was able to stop my ex and get me attorney fees. He did a good job.
