It is with a deep sense loss the law firm of St. John, Bowling, Lawrence & Quagliana, LLP announces the passing of our respected associate and good friend, K. Jay Galloway on August 8, 2019.
Jay was a phenomenal young attorney who believed in helping all those he could receive fair treatment in the legal system. As a veteran of the United States Navy, Jay believed in continuing his service by helping other veterans, and did so before both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Court of Appeals of Veterans Claims.
We are shocked and heartbroken by this sudden loss. His family requested privacy, and will not be having public services.
Jay is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law and served in the chambers of the Honorable Elizabeth A. McClanahan of the Supreme Court of Virginia before returning to Charlottesville.
Jay is also a veteran of the United States Navy. Jay founded a program at the University of Virginia School of Law that assists veterans appealing denials of disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. He has provided assistance to other law schools seeking to initiate similar programs to aid veterans. Jay is admitted to practice before both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Court of Appeals of Veterans Claims, as well as all the Courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
After leaving the Supreme Court of Virginia, Jay focused his practice on wills, trusts, and gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer tax planning before joining St. John, Bowling, Lawrence & Quagliana, LLP. Jay handles a wide range of matters with a focus on criminal and civil litigation, as well as estate planning and Title IX investigations.
