Jay Hamilton knows that a convincing argument is not going to be the longest one, and he advocates for his clients by being direct. With creative approaches to argument and research, Jay drafts briefs and motions with a focus on economic efficiency for the client without sacrificing quality.

While Jay has a variety of experience in civil litigation and personal injury, his primary focus is his extensive work in insurance defense, first party property, and business litigation. Jay enjoys the process of taking cases from inception to trial, and approaches issues in successful but cost-effective ways. For these reasons, clients can expect practical long-term thinking and prudent decisions from Jay. This unique method sets him and Galloway apart from the competitors.

When not in the office, Jay can be found exploring the unique history and identity of Florida, kayaking, relaxing on the beach, or enjoying an occasional getaway to Northern Michigan.

Representative Matters

  • Obtained dismissal and compulsion to appraisal in first party cases.
  • Obtained dismissals and stays of matters by using declaratory action as to rescission of the underlying auto-policy.
  • Defended third party and uninsured motorist claims for national rideshare company.
