Jay is a founding partner of Lander & Lander. He is a graduate of both Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and has practiced exclusively in the area of sophisticated estate planning, estate administration and related taxation since 1962. He works closely with his clients to craft plans that are both customized to meet their needs, and reflect the most up-to-date changes in the law, including:

  • Wills
  • Codicils
  • Revocable trusts
  • Irrevocable insurance trusts
  • Grantor retained annuity trusts
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Health care proxies

In addition to the above, Jay provides legal advice in connection with the administration of estates, including and without limitation, estate tax compliance and the liquidation and distribution of estate and trust assets.

Prior to establishing Lander & Lander, Jay served as a tax attorney for the Office of the Regional Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service in New York City, and was associated with, and later became a partner of, the Framingham law firm of Sheridan, Garrahan & Lander (which later merged with the Worcester law firm of Bowditch & Dewey) where he practiced estate planning and tax law.

He has been recognized by his peers as a Massachusetts “Super Lawyer,” as published in Boston Magazine. He also is past President of the South Middlesex Bar Association and the Greater Boston Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. He is also a past Chairman of the Framingham Union Hospital and is a past Board Member of the Friends of the Framingham Heart Study, and the Metrowest Community Health Care Foundation. He has lectured on the subject of estate planning to various professional groups and lay groups for over forty-five years.
