About Jay

As a former assistant State Attorney in Orange and Osceola Counties, I have unique experience of understanding how the prosecution works. I have taken all the skills that I have learned at the state attorney's office and over the past 15 plus years to help my client navigate through the criminal court process. My law partner, Andrew Moses and I opened the firm in 2006 with a dedication toward criminal defense. We have handled thousands of cases and appear in court on a daily bases for our clients. Our firm handles cases throughout Central Florida - including Orange, Osceola, Polk, Lake, Volusia, Sumter, and Brevard counties. Personalized and attentive service to each individual client is a priority. We make every effort to be easily accessible to clients and provide every client with thorough case preparation and professional execution for positive results.
