Jay is a commercial litigator who draws upon his experience working in his own family business in his representation of clients across the state. He focuses on representing the interests of businesses of all sizes in commercial litigation matters.

In his spare time, Jay enjoys spending time with his boys, BBQing, fishing, or watching whatever sporting event he can find.  He is an elder at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in College Station, Texas.  You can also find Jay “working out some stress” in the wrestling ring, and catch him some weekends wherever Drake Durden is wrestling (which is usually at Lions Pride Sports in Bryan, Texas).
