See What Our Clients and Peers Have Said About Us

Finding an attorney can be difficult. It is hard to know which ones you can trust to always work on your behalf. Rather than taking our word for it, why not take some time to read through what our actual clients and peers have had to say over the years. You’ll soon see that we have a strong reputation for being the hardest working and most reliable practice in the area.

I came to Jay with a non-compete issue with a previous employer in the federal contracting space that presented a whole host of challenges for myself and my family. I was invited to Baltimore where I met with Jay and discussed a strategy that provided me with the confidence that I would get through my particular situation. He is not a “yes” man and will give you the best legal opinion to help you achieve your goals while also limiting your exposure to unnecessary litigation.

Jay used his skills as an attorney to open a new line of communication with my previous employer who was both litigious and unapologetic about their restrictive noncompete clause. Rather than go to court, he helped me work with that employer to identify which opportunities they would be willing to grant me a waiver for and which they would not. Many of the opportunities we discussed were ultimately allowed, enabling me to receive multiple job offers over the ensuing weeks and months. I’m happy to say I’m now employed with an excellent organization and have moved on to bigger and better things.

In short, Jay is a smart, well-tempered, and committed attorney who has the capacity and sincere passion to help those in need of representation when facing big challenges from prior or existing employers. If that is what you’re after, then look no further.

Attorney Stafford is top-notch! After serving in a senior director’s role for almost a decade, with outstanding performance, I was essentially ousted! The head of my previous employer was allowed to manufacture a plan to get rid of me as part of a scheme to build a new team. I was presented with the “opportunity” to resign along with a confidential “separation agreement.” Attorney Stafford helped me to navigate this complex legal situation and advised me on negotiating the best deal possible. I remain grateful for his legal expertise and compassion during an extremely emotional period. Along with God and my family, he was with me every step of the way!

Renita Seabrook, Ph.D.

Mr. Stafford was recommended to me by a trusted source, and never have I been so grateful for this referral. My past legal experiences had not been as good, leaving me fearful of outcomes.

Mr. Stafford remained not only professional throughout his representation of me, but also extremely sensitive to what I had been through. He reassured me several times about our stance in the case, and guided me into the best decisions possible when they needed to be made.

Mr. Stafford was fair and just, which is exactly what one hopes for in an attorney. He handled all rising issues in the best ways possible, and his choices and results were always good ones.

I would hire Mr. Stafford again in a heartbeat, and would encourage anyone seeking litigation to do the same.
