Signature image of Jay D. Reyero

Jay D. Reyero grew up playing team sports and sees himself as an integral part of his client’s team when they engage him. He truly respects those with whom he works, and he always gives maximum effort for the benefit of the team. As a member of the firm, he is responsive and respectful, striving to make sure each client receives the full attention they deserve. Jay enjoys solving problems, and is adept at listening and asking the right questions. He can communicate complex issues effectively, helping clients understand and feel comfortable with the course of action required. He has a background as both a litigator and transactional attorney, bringing a unique and balanced perspective to the firm’s clients.

“I like solving complex problems. To me, it’s not about learning the standard way to do things, but continually looking for better ways to do things.”

Jay’s practice focuses on the representation of business clients, with health care being the core of his practice. His health care and regulatory expertise involves the counseling and advising of physicians, physician groups, other medical service providers and non-professionals. Specific areas of expertise include Federal and State health care regulations and how they impact investments, transactions and various contractual arrangements, particularly in the areas of Federal and State anti-referral, anti-kickback and HIPAA compliance.

While he is enthusiastic and passionate about business, law, and how the two intersect, Jay still works at achieving a healthy work-life balance. He enjoys spending time with his family and is an avid runner who enjoys daily runs with his running buddies–his black Labs.
