He incorporates technology and knowledge-sharing to more effectively and efficiently represent his clients. Furthermore, Jay works with his clients to structure alternative fees arrangements.
Whether creating the opportunity for decisive, favorable dismissal of an opponent's claims or facing a lengthy jury trial, Jay handles multimillion-dollar and "bet the company" matters for his clients, working with them to determine, pursue and achieve their goals.
