Jay was born in Charleston, West Virginia, on May 18, 1958. He lived with his family in Greensboro and Raleigh, North Carolina, as well as brief periods in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. He has been married since 1985 and has two daughters.

Jay graduated cum laude from Duke University in 1980, with a Bachelors of Science in zoology. After working as a medical research technician at the Duke Medical Center for a few years, he attended Vanderbilt University Law School, where he graduated in 1986 in the top 15 percent of his class. After four years of practice for business-oriented firms, in which he represented defendants and insurance companies in workers' compensation and other personal injury claims, along with a variety of other types of matters, Jay "jumped the fence" in 1990 and joined a plaintiffs' personal injury law firm in Greensboro, where he headed up the workers' compensation practice area and worked on other personal injury cases. After 10 years at that firm, in 2000, Jay opened his own law practice, Jay Gervasi, P.A., where he remains today.

Jay has been certified as a specialist in workers' compensation by the North Carolina State Bar since 2000, when certification was first offered in that field. He has been the chair of the workers' compensation section of the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers, is a permanent member of the executive committee of that section and is listed in The Best Lawyers in America. Jay has been a frequent speaker at educational seminars for fellow lawyers and others, has written "Friend of the Court" briefs on behalf of the Academy of Trial Lawyers and has been actively involved in advising and assisting other attorneys in their cases. Further, Jay, along with a number of his trial lawyer colleagues, has devoted significant time and resources to the political process, fighting to protect injured people in all aspects of the system. While engaging in these other activities, Jay has devoted his work to representing hundreds of seriously injured people, advising them about their decisions in the complicated variety of issues they face and litigating their claims before the trial courts, the Industrial Commission and the North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. Jay has chosen to focus his practice on a relatively limited number of cases involving severe injuries and complex issues.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
