Areas of Practice

James R. "Jay" Ping represents individuals including farmers, and small business owners in estate planning and business planning matters, and in litigation surrounding those issues. He has successfully represented business clients in disputes with local and state governments and regulatory agencies for more than fifteen years. His previous service as a staff attorney for the Chapter 13 Standing Trustee in the Central District of Illinois has given him a unique understanding of debtor-creditor issues in bankruptcy.

Jay was born on a U.S. Army base in Germany, the son of a soldier. From his childhood in the farming community of Oblong, Illinois, he was fascinated with local government. Beginning with his first job at the age of ten, delivering newspapers, he planned for a career in journalism, reporting on government. After a college career that included an internship in the Missouri House of Representatives, and later, a Master’s degree in Public Administration, he worked for several years as a news reporter, winning Illinois Press Association awards for his original columns and local government reporting. But while reporting from the local courthouse, he became convinced that he could better serve the community as a lawyer. He earned his juris doctorate from Indiana University in Bloomington in 2000, and was admitted to practice in Illinois state courts and Federal courts for the Central and Southern Districts of Illinois, and the Southern District of Indiana.

Jay is married to Kristin Ping, and they have three children, Eva, age 21, Clark, age 18, and Ellen, age 12. Jay continues to enjoy community service, and over the years has served as president of the Paris, Illinois Rotary Club a director of the Human Resource Center of Edgar and Clark Counties, a Cub Scout leader, and YMCA volunteer.
