My wife and I first met Jay in March/April 2009 during the global financial meltdown. Jay had been recommended to us by a number of people within the legal profession as being a solid bankruptcy attorney who would look after us and make sure we got the best outcome possible.
The first thing my wife and I felt was that Jay put us at ease about the process. Of course it is not something anyone wants to go through, but his systematic approach enabled us to sleep at night not worried that we were doing the right thing.
Within 6 weeks we filed for a chapter 7 BK and found it to be a relatively painless process. Jay was able to remove $30K of credit card debt, and our house which was a huge burden since I had lost my position 5 months earlier, and we couldn't afford the mortgage as we had depleted our savings.
Once we were discharged from the BK, Jay continued to support us with advice and help when we needed clarification. It took the bank 6 years for the bank to foreclose the property we had been discharged from, and even after this amount of time, Jay continued to support us with advice and help if we needed it. Recently Jay has been a champion on our side during our quest to secure a new mortgage, we can't thank him enough.
If we had to sum Jay up in a few words, they would be: Honest, fair, diligent, helpful and just a nice guy to work with.
We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs to go through this process. With Jay on your side, it doesn't hurt as bad as you think!
