Patricia Jay

Senior Associate Attorney

"It is necessary to remember while practicing law that our clients have come to us in a time of deeply personal turmoil, and it is our responsibility to help them find a solution.

 

In order to be effective advocates, we must negotiate and litigate family law cases from a place of understanding of our client’s strengths and their desired outcome of their case. 

 

It is important to me for clients to know that I understand this is a difficult time for them and that I want to focus on their concerns and build the most effective strategy for representation in their family law matter."

Patricia Jay is a Senior Associate with the Beal Law Firm. With over a decade of experience practicing family law, Ms. Jay has dealt with child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, alimony, and divorce issues, on a daily basis for over 12 years.
