I've know Jay for over 10 years & have full confidence in his integrity & knowledge of the law. If I ever needed a lawyer, Jay would be the first person I would go to.

Walter Cooke


Jay is a hardworking, honest attorney with a very broad practice which includes civil and criminal appeals as well as business, criminal, family, and juvenile law; commercial and personal injury litigation, and wills, trusts and probate. His broad experience makes him very well qualified to sit on the 9th Court of Appeals which has jurisdiction over appeals from a ten county area. We need level headed, common sense lawyers like Jay serving on our courts of appeal.

Chris Forbes


His integrity is at the highest level. He has great knowledge of the law and a passion for the law. His experience and his knowledge will make him a great chief justice!
