Coming from a long line of small-town attorneys, Jay has always devoted his practice to representing clients who have been badly hurt or killed, or suffered other injuries at the hands of others.

His philosophy is that every client should be fully prepared for trial, with the hope of achieving a satisfactory result for his clients short of the courtroom.
