"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.

"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.

"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.

So, do yourself a favor and just go to the best lawyer in Philadelphia.

"Whenever I had a question or needed help understanding something, he was always available to talk with me."

"It was a privilege and honor to have Andrew G. Gay, Jr. as my attorney. He is a fine human being, and a fantastic lawyer."

I have known Andrew G. Gay, Jr. since he was seven years old when I babysat for him and his sisters.  One day, and many years later, I needed a very good attorney.  I learned that Andrew Gay, Sr. retired and realized that Andrew, Jr. had his own firm.  When I met with Andrew Gay, Jr. it was a pleasure to have him take my case.  He took one look at my documents and said that some old cases I had could be expunged from my record.  Andrew G. Gay, Jr. handled my case expeditiously.  Now I have a clean record.  It was a privilege and honor to have Andrew G. Gay, Jr. as my attorney.  He is a fine human being, and a fantastic lawyer.  Thank you.

"My case was dismissed, and I have my children back, safe with me. Andrew Gay, Jr. was sent from heaven to fight for all types of people."

Just when things couldn't get worse for me, my life, in an instant, changed from bad to worse.  I was arrested in May 2010.  I was separated from my children for making a poor decision when I used the restroom, leaving my children in my car for a short time.  I was charged with child endangerment.  I can't say enough about Andrew Gay, Jr.  All the time and effort he has given my case … all the confidence he has passed down to me.  My case was dismissed, and I have my children back, safe with me.  Andrew Gay, Jr. was sent from heaven to fight for all types of people.  Thank you, thank you, and God Bless The Good.

"No matter how much they tell you they love their clients, not many lawyers live to his standard."

He is a great guy; very fast and efficient in court; when he gives his word, he gets stuff done.  From a lawyer family, he has large amount of experience.  Many people that know him would agreed.  He actually gives his cell phone to the client and he actually answers calls, as well as text messages.  This is what is so is unique about Andrew Gay, Jr., and set him apart from other lawyers.  No matter how much they tell you they love their clients, not many lawyers live to his standard.  He totally deserves a review like this.

"A brilliant attorney, very personable and accessible."

Our college-aged daughter was arrested, and charged with under-aged drinking, public drunkenness, and possession of a fake ID, and spent one night in jail.  This was her second arrest for the same thing, and the odds were heavily stacked against her, including the loss of her driver’s license for one year.  Our daughter had just received a wonderful internship opportunity that necessitated travel.  Loss of her driver’s license would have been devastating for her future and her career.  Andy arranged a meeting with us very quickly and took right over.  He is a brilliant attorney, very personable and accessible.  He was exceptionally well-organized, provided pertinent updates, and exhausted all available options for defense.  The personal attention we received made us feel important.  Because he worked closely with the police department prior to her court date, he was able to negotiate for a reduced sentence.  Andy was relentless and did the impossible.  Our daughter only received a fine and was able to keep her license!  Most importantly, though, our daughter received another chance in life.  This internship has actually led to a job offer following graduation, and our daughter is back on track to a bright future, all thanks to Andy Gay, Jr.!

"Watching Andrew in the courtroom, navigate through the complex legal system with ease and commanding respect simply with his presence brought me tremendous relief and comfort."

I highly recommend Andrew Gay, Jr.  It is difficult to convey the despair a parent feels when a child is arrested.  As a parent, we understand and know how foolish our children can be at times, and that foolishness is tied up in the heart of a child, especially during the teenage years.  The court system fails to share our perspective, compassion and most importantly, our leniency when a child takes a misstep.  The law is unyielding, and without the right representation in the courtroom, one poor decision can quickly ruin a child's life.  This was the case with my son.  One reckless decision was about to take him from being a troubled youth trying to cope with the difficulties of life to being labeled as a criminal.  I found us facing court hearings, judges, fines, and no one to help guide us through the process.  The fear and hopelessness I felt was overwhelming.  That is when I found Andrew to represent my son.  Watching Andrew in the courtroom, navigate through the complex legal system with ease and commanding respect simply with his presence brought me tremendous relief and comfort.  I knew I had chosen the best to represent my son.  Andrew is highly skilled and adept in his practice of law.  He is compassionate, while pragmatic in his approach to a case.  The outcome of my son's case was better than I had expected, and I would highly recommend Andrew, if you want peace of mind knowing you are represented by the best when walking into the courtroom.  When you want peace of mind, coupled with outstanding ability, you want to be represented by Andrew Gay, Jr.
