Jay M. Niederman

Jay received his Juris Doctorate degree from Rutgers Law School in 1972 and was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in November of 1972. Upon graduation, he joined the law firm of Okin, Pressler and Shapiro of Fort Lee, New Jersey. This firm specialized in commercial matters, with a high concentration in bankruptcy, assignment for benefit of creditors, state court receivership and other commercial matters, including collections.

Jay was admitted to the New Hampshire Bar in 1974. Upon admission, he joined the Rinden Professional Association of Concord, New Hampshire, a firm that specialized in commercial and retail collection matters. In 1977, he established his own law office in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Jay has specialized in collections, subrogation claims and related matters since 1974. He has lectured extensively on collections, commercial law and related subjects for various organizations, including the New Hampshire Bar Association, New Hampshire Bankers Association, Commercial Law League of America, National Employment Lawyers Association, New Hampshire Technical College and The Franklin Pierce Law School. He regularly presents a seminar titled “Debtor-Creditor and Starting a Civil Lawsuit” as part of the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Practical Skills Course for newly-admitted New Hampshire attorneys.  

Jay has served on the New Hampshire Bar Association Committees on Continuing Legal Education,  Ethics and  Fee Dispute Resolution. He is an active member of the Commercial Law League of America. He has served as Treasurer and Legislative Chairperson for the New England Regional Members Association of the Commercial Law League. He is also an active member of the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys (NARCA).

In addition to his representation of clients and teaching, Jay has spearheaded efforts to protect the New Hampshire legal collection process from overly-restrictive legislation. This has involved interacting closely with legislators, lobbyists and other interested parties, testifying before legislative committees as well as negotiation and drafting of proposed bills and revised court rules.

Jay is board certified as a Creditors Rights Specialist by the Academy of Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights specialists of the Commercial Law League of America and the American Board of Certification. He has just recently received his 20-year re-certification. He is the only New Hampshire attorney who has been awarded this certification in recognition of his skills as a creditors rights advocate.

When not involved with legal matters, Jay enjoys spending time with his wife, Susan, their two children (both attorneys) and five grandchildren.
