About Jay

Jay focuses on DWI defense and criminal defense and is based out of Godwin Dold’s Rochester, Minnesota office. Jay uses a deep knowledge of the science of alcohol testing and of the law to get the best possible result for each and every client charged with DWI.

Jay grew up in Rochester, Minnesota, attending Rochester public schools and graduating from Mayo High School. Jay graduated with a bachelor’s of science from St. Cloud State University before receiving his law degree from the University of St. Thomas Law School.
