The Young Lawyers Section (YLS), founded in 1971, was created to address the needs and interests of newly admitted attorneys. To satisfy these needs the YLS offers substantive practice committees as well as public service committees and projects. The diversity of committees and projects affords a wide variety of ways for attorneys to participate in the YLS. Through this participation, the YLS encourages attorneys to develop and pursue innovative ideas and programs.  What began as a small group of fifty young lawyers hosting continuing legal education programs covering a handful of substantive law areas has grown into a dynamic and diverse group of more than 9,000 lawyers and law student members.  The YLS now boasts nearly 30 substantive law committees and implements close to 50 special projects every bar year.

Jim Gay

Welcome to the New James Gay Law Site

The world of personal injury law is best known for some of its loudest advertising voices. I’m best known by my Chicago area clients for resolving personal injury and wrongful death suits equitably, professionally, and – when possible – by settling outside the courtroom.

As a private legal practice in Chicago, I work one-on-one with each of my clients. I know how important your case is and treat it as such. I maintain contact with you, listen to your goals, expectations and give personal attention to every case.

If your case doesn’t fit my areas of practice, I’ll be happy to provide a referral to a firm that better fits your legal needs. Professional referral requests are welcome at any time. Please e-mail
