Martindale-Hubbell, and colleagues, honor Jay with an “AV Preeminent” peer-review rating


In July, Jay learned that the venerated lawyer directory Martindale-Hubbell had contacted a number of his colleagues for a “peer review.” That survey led Martindale-Hubbell to crown Jay with its highest rating in Criminal Law, “AV Preeminent for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability.”
