Jay M. Spillane


Jay M. Spillane is devoted to winning business trials.  For over three decades, Mr. Spillane has successfully tried numerous jury and non-jury trials in state, federal and bankruptcy courts.  He has also briefed and argued numerous state and federal appeals.  Mr. Spillane does not merely shuffle paper during the pretrial process with the end goal of steering the client into whatever settlement may be offered.  He believes that anyone with a law degree can be a litigator, but a true trial lawyer will begin and end every case by honing and presenting a clear story, one that will be readily understood by and compel any audience.  Mr. Spillane‚Äôs goal from beginning to end is to prevail in court.  This approach often results in the best possible settlement, and when a case cannot settle on acceptable terms, the best results at trial.
