"Do yourself a favor, and put yourself in the best hands possible."

I consulted Andy Gay in January 2016, after reading extremely comforting reviews about his expertise and knowledge of criminal defense in the Philadelphia court system. His 20+ years experience saved me from many years in jail.  I can't thank him enough for his professionalism, dedication, and the level of seriousness he put into preparing my case for trial.  I was facing aggravated assault, simple assault, robbery, and numerous weapons charges, as well as reckless endangerment and conspiracy.  From the moment I met with Andy, I immediately felt comfortable with the fact that he laid out the seriousness of my situation, and possible outcomes, without sugar coating anything just so I'd hire him.  His hard work and dedication to my case got me acquitted of all my charges.  My trial was on May 11, 2017, and I walked out a free man.  Andy gave me the opportunity to start a new chapter in my life.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Andrew Gay, Jr., to represent you in any criminal situation.  Do yourself a favor, and put yourself in the best hands possible.

"Watching Andrew Gay Jr. at work is brilliant and genius. In the courtroom he is righteous, amazing and an expert at what he does best."

Andrew G. Gay Jr. is the most professional and compassionate lawyer that I’ve ever met.  Andrew was hired to represent my boyfriend regarding a case in which he was accused of sexual abuse.  From the first meeting with Mr. Gay, he believed, just as well as I did, that these allegations against my boyfriend were just allegations.  As we told our story to Mr. Gay, he listened attentively and made it very clear to us how serious the charges were, but he gave us his word that he would do his very best to make sure that justice was served.

Watching Andrew Gay Jr. at work is brilliant and genius.  In the courtroom he is righteous, amazing and an expert at what he does best.  Overall, my experience with the Law Office of Andrew Gay Jr. has been an exceptional one.  I will be recommending his services to everyone I know in need of legal help!

"The charges were dropped, and I am now in the process of re-enlistment. I highly recommend Andy Gay, Jr. to anyone in need of legal services for criminal or personal injury."

Andrew Gay, Jr. is a high powered and highly respected lawyer, yet his retainer fee was very reasonable.  When I had my preliminary hearing a few months back, I was prepared to abandon all hope ... there was no ‘light at the end of the tunnel’.  My intentions were to re-enlist in the Marine Corps.  The charge I faced would suddenly make that impossible.  It was sheer luck that on that day, I was able to observe Andy Gay representing another client.  It was a combination of the respect that was given to Mr. Gay by everyone on both sides of the courtroom, and the energy and professionalism that led me to decide that I needed him to represent me.  After a free consultation with Andrew Gay, Jr., I left his office feeling extremely optimistic about the outcome of my case.  After all was said and done, the charges were dropped, and I am now in the process of re-enlistment.  I highly recommend Andy Gay, Jr. to anyone in need of legal services for criminal or personal injury.

"He gave me back my freedom, but most important, proved I was innocent. I have my life back."

Andrew Gay, Jr. represented me with a very serious case.  My life, and the future of my family, were all in his hands.  When I met with Andy, as we spoke often concerning the case, he gave me his individual attention to hear out my case, and gather all the information he needed to prove my innocence.  He immediately began working with my case and kept me and my family informed.

When I was incarcerated, my wife called him and she briefly gave him a quick version of what happened.  Mr. Andrew immediately communicated with me and my wife concerning the procedure, as I was never in this kind of situation in my life.  Andrew Gay, Jr. did exactly what he told us from the very being, and proved my innocence.   There are not enough words to say to him but, “THANK YOU! “ is a start.

He gave me back my freedom, but most important, proved I was innocent.  I have my life back.  I appreciate every day I get up, and I owe it to Andrew and God.  I enjoy every day I am able to sleep and get up knowing I have one less thing I have to worry about.  I owe it all to Andrew Gay Jr.  My deepest THANK YOU FROM ME AND MY WIFE.  God Bless You.

"When other attorneys shot me down, Mr. Gay picked up the battle and won."

A great attorney!!!!!  Mr. Andrew Gay, Jr. took on my case after another attorney turned it down.  When I met Mr. Gay, he made me feel like I knew him for years.  A great friendship formed very quickly.  He would take my calls any time of the day, and called me to see how I was doing and holding up outside of the case.  His skills and knowledge of the law got me a great settlement, and in such a short time.  When other attorneys shot me down, Mr. Gay picked up the battle and won.  I recommend Mr. Gay to everyone who needs an attorney...10 stars for the attorney of the decade.  Thank you, Mr. Gay.

"I highly recommend Andrew Gay, Jr."

Andrew Gay, Jr. represented my son a few months ago.  We asked him to have the court date postponed for employment reasons.  As it turned out, that wasn't acceptable for my son's employer.  When I informed Mr. Gay, he said it was almost impossible to get an earlier court date.  Not only did he accomplish this, but he was able to get everything dropped to a disorderly conduct charge.  I highly recommend Andrew Gay, Jr.

"All I heard was, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY."

When I first met Andy, I had just lost my mother and I was on the edge of loosing my only son.  He came recommended by my sister, who had worked with him temporarily.  I was clueless of what to do next.  The only thing that I knew for sure was that I had a God that loved me and that He would never leave me nor forsake me.  My life was pretty black at that first meeting.  I was the mother who kept telling him, Andy, that he was going to be the stone that knocked off Goliath's head.  I don't know if he understood my description of the situation, but he never for one second fear or doubted my faith.

All Andy knew was that we needed a supernatural miracle, and he was ready and very able to be part of it.  It was 16 months of pure agony, doubts from everybody else, except me.  Andy was NOT giving up on me, or the case.  I am sure there were times that he wondered what he had got himself into when I called him in the middle of the night, or on the weekend just to cry and scream on the phone.  It took a lot for him not to give up.  Andrew chose to believe in the case.  We had everything to loose and my son's life to gain.  We walked out of that courtroom with the freedom that God created us to have.  All I heard was, “NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY.”  I recommend Andrew Gay, Jr. as a lawyer, human being, professional, humble, knowledgeable, genius, listener, and most important than all, a man that understands a mother.

"When you hire Andrew, he is your suit of armor. Some words to define him are: humble, the pit bull in court, professional person."

I was accused of a serious sexual offense about 2 1/2 years ago.  I had hired a local so-called criminal defense lawyer that was a fast talker.  This person was not prepared, and did not do any preparation for my case.  He was all about the money, and took advantage of my family and me.  I did not know what to do in this legal matter, I thought he was the one, but he was not.

With my girlfriend's assistance, we found Andrew Gay Jr. through the Internet.  At that time, I was at the end of the rope. Andrew called me back and asked when I could meet with him to discuss my situation.  During our first meeting we discussed my serious legal matters, I learned I was facing a minimum of 5 to 10 years in prison for something I did not do.  After we met with Andrew G. Gay, Jr., he explained things to me in a way I could understand.  He made me feel at ease.  I hired him to represent me.

I chose to have a judge trial, instead of a jury, which was recommended my Mr. Gay.  I listened to him, and followed his lead. My trial was in March 2010.  On that day, all I had on my side helping me was God, Andrew, Family and Facts.  With my lawyer’s expertise and knowledge, I was found NOT GUILTY!

The Law Office of Andrew G. Gay, Jr. was God-sent.  For those of you in similar situations, you do have a fighting chance in the court of law.  When you hire Andrew, he is your suit of armor.  Some words to define him are: humble, the pit bull in court, professional person.  Andrew is a lawyer, a friend, not about Mr. Green.  You know that you have something special when you hire him.  I am blessed to have met an excellent lawyer.  I don't hesitate to give his name to anyone who is in need of an excellent lawyer.  He gave me back my freedom, and now I can live my life as a free man.  Thank you for believing in me, The Law Office of Andrew G.Gay, Jr. is a 5 star law firm. P.S.  He is all that in court!

"I started to wonder if any attorney actually cared about their clients, or just their fees. Then we met Andrew Gay, Jr. Within five minutes, I knew he was our attorney."

My son was charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm.  He was caught with marked money on him as a result of a week long stakeout by the Philadelphia Police.  If convicted, he faced a minimum five-year sentence.  Not immediately known to us, but the Federal Government was also looking at the case.  Having heard these serious charges, I began looking for representation for my son.  After looking on the Internet and interviewing a few attorneys over the phone, I started to wonder if any attorney actually cared about their clients, or just their fees.  Then we met Andrew Gay, Jr.  Within five minutes, I knew he was our attorney.  What stood out the most was he had the heart of a teacher, and really wanted you to understand your case.  He was also very patient with us, even when we wanted to go over the same conversation several times.

In addition to his attitude toward us, Andrew is very familiar with the system and all the different players in the game.  I had the confidence that he was well liked, respected and had a lot of courtroom experience.  I felt that his fees were in line with what he was offering.  I’m sure there are less expensive lawyers, but you must ask yourself, “Are you getting the best lawyer possible for your situation?”  Having said all of that, like most, we still wanted a favorable outcome. Although the chips looked to be very much stacked against us, Andrew never gave up and fought extremely hard.  In the end, we were able to get probation, with some conditions, but most of all my son has been given a second chance.  His record will be erased after he completes the probation.  We thank you again from the bottom of our heart.  You can’t go wrong with Andrew Gay, Jr.

"Andrew Gay, Jr. got down to business right from the start, and in a little less than seven months, I received my settlement check."

I can say innumerable things about Andrew G. Gay Jr., but I will keep it short and simple.  I encountered Mr. Gay through a friend, and boy, was I ecstatic I did.  Andrew Gay, Jr. got down to business right from the start, and in a little less than seven months, I received my settlement check.  Andrew always kept me posted about my case.  There were even times when I fell short, but Andrew was always on top of it.  He would e-mail me documents, and if he had not heard anything from me within 24-48 hours, he would call, just to make sure I received the information.  Thank you very much Andrew for all your hard work and effort in obtaining the settlement on my behalf.  It is not often that I have met and worked with such a passionate, devoted, and meticulous individual such as yourself.  Your attention is 100% customer and goal oriented, many lawyers can learn from your professionalism, attitude, and effort.  You were great and I appreciate everything you did for me.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

"Andy clearly cares about the people he represents. If you need representation, Andy Gay, Jr. is the only one you should ever call for help."

When I think of Andy Gay, Jr., the words that come to mind are compassionate, hardworking, serious and kind lawyer, who I am proud to call a friend.  I can only say this through my experiences with this great man.  I met Andy a few years ago through my husband, who referred me after being in a hit and run accident.  The day after the accident, I was in a great deal of pain.  Andy took the time to find out how I was doing and then he referred me to a doctor.  This was not a case where I could sue anyone, but that didn't matter to Andy.  He helped me through a difficult process when I didn't know where to turn.

Seven months later, while driving with my family, we were rear-ended.  Let's just say, my husband and I have Andy on speed dial.  Once again, Andy was on the job.  He didn't hesitate to get us all the help we needed.  Andy made sure that we saw the right doctors and constantly kept up with our recovery progress.

Andy clearly cares about the people he represents. If you need representation, Andy Gay, Jr. is the only one you should ever call for help.

"When I was at my worst, Andrew was at his best. "

I just want to take a little of your time to let you know what I think of Andrew Gay, Jr.

I got a call from my son, who said he was in jail in Philadelphia, and need a lawyer.  I knew nothing about lawyers in Philadelphia, because we are from State College, Pennsylvania.  An hour later, another lawyer referred me to Andrew Gay, Jr., who added that he is a great lawyer.  This was a Wednesday, and I needed a lawyer in court on Monday.

When I called Andrew, it was with great urgency.  I was scared for my son, but Andrew took my case right over the phone with no hesitation.  On Monday, he could not be at the courthouse, so Andrew postponement the hearing.

My son and I went to Andrews’s office for a meeting, and from then on I knew I was in good hands.  Andrew kept me informed of everything.  He is an efficient professional, and knows the law all so well.  When I was at my worst, Andrew was at his best.  I can’t express when the case was over how wonderful I felt, and it was all thanks to Andrew Gay Jr.  He is truly a GOD SENT.

If anyone needs a lawyer in Philadelphia, I highly recommend Andrew.  You just can’t trust the court system today, but I can tell you this, you can trust Andrew Gay Jr.  He makes things happen.  My son and I thank you, Andrew, from the bottom of our hearts.  May God bless you, Andrew, today, tomorrow and always.

"Wall Street sharp, and Philly street smart. Andrew Gay navigates his profession well across economic, social and cultural boundaries."

Andrew Gay Jr. is a rising star in the 21st century legal scene.  I do not say this lightly.  Bank bail outs andhand outs have contributed to a national sense of helplessness and mistrust.  Attorneys are viewed as hit men for faceless corporations.  AndrewGay Jr. is accessible and savvy.  He is Wall Street sharp, and Philly street smart.  Andrew Gay navigates his profession well across economic, social and cultural boundaries.   An example of this is the recent rent-to-buy scam featured in the Philadelphia Daily news the week of November 5th 2009.  Close to three hundred Latino and African American families were to be evicted from their homes in the dead of winter by the Sheriff's Department.  On December 10th 2009, two hundred of these families appeared in Court looking for answers and justice.  Andrew Gay Jr. was the only attorney that I’m aware of in the courtroom that had already negotiated on behalf of his client, a Kensington Latino family.

"Andy is meticulous in his preparation, always writing on his legal pad, not missing a single detail."

When Andy came into my life, I was at the darkest and lowest point that any man can be.  I had virtually no hope, and for the first time in my life, I was confronted with a situation I had no control over.  I was a very proud man. God has a way of humbling you, just to show you that you do need him.  I was arrested and charged, and the deal the District Attorney offered was 22 ½  to 45 years. I was 30 years old.  Andy, in his calm voice, counseled me about the decision. I turned down the offer.

Andy is meticulous in his preparation, always writing on his legal pad, not missing a single detail.  My mother was my loudest advocate, and I am sure in the 16 months before my trial, must have made Andy age a few early years.  I am blessed to have been represented by Andrew G. Gay Jr.  I was acquitted and when home that very night.  He is blessed with the knowledge, and humbleness that is rarely seen in today's lawyers.  Andy treats you with dignity and respect, and lets you know that you are more than a number, not just another file on a desk.  I have and will ALWAYS without hesitations refer Andy to anyone that may need legal advice or representation.  Andy has become more than my lawyer; I am proud to call him our family friend.
