Jay Simons focuses his practice on banking and finance and real estate transactions. With more than 40 years of experience, Jay has a well-developed sense of what is essential to create an agreement that protects his clients’ interests but remains practical and reasonable.

That sense for what structure is required and how to make the deal happen is the result of literally thousands of such transactions. Jay has worked with banks, real estate owners, self-employed business people and entrepreneurs to help them advance their goals.

The depth of experience Jay brings to a situation is invaluable. It gives clients the reassurance that whatever risks they potentially could face have been anticipated. At the same time, Jay knows not to waste time and expense on details that do not represent a discernible advantage to his clients. That’s why so many of Jay’s clients have returned to Jay over and over again as their businesses grew and expanded, knowing that they’re getting exactly the service they need.
