Excellent Support Through Chapter 7 BK
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!

Well Served by Mr. Jump
Attorney Jay Jump successfully handled my bankruptcy in late 2009 and forced credit card companies to retreat on their attempt to garnish my wages. Six years later he has kindly offered advice on my bankruptcy and how it affects my current financial situation.

Great Attorney, Highly Reccommended
Mr. Jump is an outstanding attorney. He has helped me turn my life around and was helpful, kind and responsive throughout the process. Thank you for all you have done for me!

Jay is an outstanding attorney.
I was referred to Jay through another very reliable attorney. Jay Jump went above and beyond expectations when he helped me out. I have worked with several attorneys prior to meeting Jay and all have been helpful. In the future I will just call Jay. Not only was he professional and knowledgeable, but he also kept me informed on our situatuon daily as the case progressed. I asked for Jay's help hoping to get a fine reduced. Due to his thorough research the whole case was dropped. It saved me money and saved my record as well. I also thought Jay was an enjoyable guy to meet.

I endorse this lawyer 100%
Not only was I a client of Jay's, but I'm also an attorney. When experts need to go somewhere for advice, Jay Jump is the attorney to talk to. Jay, is very responsive to my calls and provides sound quality legal advice that I trust fully.

Jay is my hero!
I went to not one, not two, but three attorneys who all said they couldn't help me before I made an appointment with Jay. By that time I was stressed, overwhelmed and felt hopeless. Jay was patient, had ideas on how he could help me, and proceeded to outline my options. Six months later my life looks entirely different and to say it mildly - I have a life again. Though it's a painful time in one's life, if you are facing financial difficulty I can recommend you speak with the Jump Law Group.

You won't find a better Attorney than Jay!
Jay Jump and his group represented me in my Bankruptcy filing and continued representation. When I realized I needed an Attorney, I made numerous calls and did weeks of research, Jay and the Jump Law Group name were continually mentioned, and always in high regard. Even the court trustee's office referred me to him. I could not have made a better selection for an Attorney if I wanted to. From day 1 they were extremely professional and very personable. They put me completely at ease and explained everything in detail to me until all my questions had been answered. It was a very stressful time in my life and the Jump Law Group made a difficult situation less frightening and less stressful. I never felt like just another number to them. They took the time to truly concentrate on me when it was my time, and I know that is the way they treat all their clients. If I had a question they would always get back to me via phone or email with a timely response. Trustworthy is another trait that comes to mind when I think of Jay. There was never any doubt in my mind about his trustworthiness. When you personally meet him, you will understand. His experience and service level is truly a step above and his industry recognition is second to none. He truly guides you through the process smoothly, quickly and safely and you always know that you are in good hands with Jay at your side. I don't know what else I can say but I do know this, you have chosen the best when you have Jay Jump as your Attorney. Don't make the mistake of choosing someone else. You will be treated to a level of expertise, professionalism and trust that is hard to come by in this day and age. Having Jay for my Attorney was a godsend and I am thankful even 2 years later to still have him on my side. He's the best! Thanks Jay. Gary

Excellent Communicator
I didn't need to hire him to file bankruptcy for me, mainly because he was able to provide me with enough information and guidance in the free 30 minute consultation/interview for me to handle things on my own which kept me from having to file. He easily could have convinced me into using his services but suggested other alternatives for me to consider. He was straight forward and to the point and won't beat around the bush. He'll tell you like it is.

Would you again if he was closer
My husband and I have both used Jay over the last 15 years. All civil matters and Jay has won us a settlement that I didn't even know that I was entitled to, he is not the best communicator. But he worked for us.

Unresponsive!!
He is a very unresponsive attorney and does not provide the service you expect for the fee he charges. I had to ask several times for paperwork to review, and only on my final insistance of him breaching contract did he send me a incomplete petition, note he had all the information for atleast 3 months. He doesnt return calls, or emails and he is not very informative about the bankruptcy process just throws numbers at you and expects you to understand and trust him. I would never recommend him.

Not the best comunicator
I used Jay years ago for a BK, he is just processing paper like McDonalds burgers, not communication, not explanation of the process, just plain focus on his assumptions. Not happy, after it closed the case and I asked for copy of my docs email he said it was 25 cents per page or I could go to the court to get it. (I did) I was not impress for his service with the high fee he charge. Not very professional presentation.

Worst experience with an attorney
I think I used by a cheesy lawyer. Never kept me informed on what was going on, never returned my phone calls, and did not return my any of my personal paperwork. Very unprofessional.
