Attorney Jay McDivitt is committed to seeking justice and wholeness for injured people and their loved ones. Jay graduated from Marquette University Law School, where he was inducted into the Pro Bono Society, competed in Moot Court, worked as an Academic Success Program leader, and served on and was published in the Marquette University Law Review.
Jay transitioned to law school while continuing to serve in his first careers as an ordained pastor and a father of two young children. He brings skills and passions from both those vocations to his work as an advocate.
While in school, he volunteered over 120 hours on various pro bono projects, including domestic violence injunctions, immigration status adjustment for victims of violence against women, and civil legal aid for veterans and lower income clients. He also developed a passion for appellate writing and advocacy while interning with Judge Jeffrey Davis in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals (District II).
Jay began working as an attorney at Cannon & Dunphy following graduation from law school in June 2021.
