Jay practices in the area of creditor-debtor law, including both creditor-side judgment enforcement and debtor-side defense. Because of Jay's extensive past experience with asset protection planning, Jay frequently represents creditors in attempting to bust through complex asset protection arrangements, and debtors who have such arrangements. Less frequently, he represents debtors who have cases with interesting technical issues.

Jay served as an American Bar Association Adviser to the drafting committees of the Uniform Voidable Transactions Act (2014) and the Uniform Registration of Canadian Money Judgments Act (2019). He also served as the court-appointed receiver in Pacific Coast Management v. Gaggero and Wynn v. Francis. Jay authored the book The Charging Order Practice Guide (Amer.Bar.Assoc., 2018). He writes frequently on creditor-debtor issues for his column in Forbes.com

Jay's exploits in pursuing the assets of New Times Media LLC (the holding company of the Village Voice companies) have been recounted in two articles:
