Summary

I am an Attorney with 25 years of experience who was born and raised in Evansville. If you decide to hire me, I answer my own phone, and preform my work. What you see is what you get. I have extensive experience in criminal law. For six years I was a public defender in Chicago. For one year, I was a prosecutor in Evansville. I have substantial experience in both family law and business litigation. I agree with those who claim that an experienced lawyer is better than an unexperienced lawyer. In addition, I believe that a good relationship with my clients is necessary for me to understand my clients’ background and their goals. More importantly, I must listen to what my clients say to me by their body language and their unspoken desires. This is especially true in Family Law cases. I work with clients to find the big picture and to define clients’ long term goals so that my work is always pointed in that direction. I am a supportive voice of reason at a time when some clients feel “their world falling apart.” I always try to put myself in my client’s shoes to better understand and empathize with my clients. I never promise what I can’t guarantee. I am not a cheerleader. I assume that my clients pay their hard earned money to hire a lawyer who will honestly advise them. Given my wealth of experience as a lawyer and as a person, I give my clients objective fact and research based opinions. I always try to see and to help my clients see “the forest through the trees.” I treat my clients and their legal issues with the same compassion I would want. For example, today at the end of his case said: “Thanks Jay for everything you did. You are an excellent lawyer and even a better person.” Hard work, intelligence and a good education can make a lawyer a good lawyer. I, however, cannot pretend to be a good person. For that, it takes a lifetime of experiences, success, and failures. Candidly, I learn much more from my human failings than from my fleeting mo
