“If you look at law firm advertising, he really introduced it to the profession,” Levick said in an interview with the Legal Times. “Jay’s brilliance was seeing the opportunity of the market and he recognized early on what was most important for law firms to do at the time. He took people who tend to be extremely slow in adapting and got them to see the importance of change.”
