Ishmael “Jay” Scarborough began working in the legal community in 2010 as a paralegal for the US Army. He transitioned from active military service to state service in 2013. Between 2014 and 2017, Jay managed the Washington State Clemency and Pardons Board where he developed an appreciation for helping one another grow beyond past experiences. With the intent of furthering his education to better support his community, Jay left public service in 2017.
Jay has joined Gravis Law after three years of volunteering with local PTAs, assisting students in elementary school classrooms, and providing family support during periods of hardship. He brings with him a diverse range of professional experience bound together by his values of compassion and selfless service. While pursuing a degree focused on public policy and child development, he also fills the roles of son, brother, uncle, and proud father of two school age children. During his free time, he can be found hiking and engaging in all sorts of shenanigans with his dog, a rowdy blue heeler mix. He enjoys photography, investigative research, and home build videos.
