“My family would say I was born to argue and I will argue for you. I will fight when your need is at its greatest — when your creditors are knocking on the door and when you are trying to get disability because you can’t work.”

Flay graduated from North Carolina State University, where he achieved a B.A. in Political Science (1993) and a B.A. Philosophy (1994). Thereafter, he attended Mercer University, Walter F. George School of Law (1997). During law school, Flay was a member of the Mercer Law Review, where he also served as a Book Editor. Flay was honored to have been selected to the Brainerd Curie Honor Society.   Flay is currently admitted to the State Bar of Georgia, Georgia Court of Appeals, Georgia Supreme Court, Southern District of Georgia, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is also a member of the Brunswick-Glynn County Bar Association. In addition to the full time practice of law, Flay serves as a Deputy Magistrate Judge for Glynn County, Georgia.

From 1997-2003, Flay worked for a local Brunswick, Georgia, lawyer. In 2003, Flay formed R. Flay Cabiness, II, PC, to practice in the areas of Bankruptcy, Social Security, Probate, and General Trial Practice. Subsequently, Flay opened a second office under the trade name The Bankruptcy Group in Hazlehurst, Georgia. In 2016, a third office location was opened in Jesup, Georgia.

Flay was born in Shelby, North Carolina, where he attended Crest High School. After his graduation from college, he decided to follow the path of his uncle, Marshall Sims, a lawyer from Griffin, Georgia, and attend law school. Upon graduation from law school, Flay moved to Brunswick, Georgia, where he married his wife Melanie. Melanie’s family is from McIntosh County, Georgia, and she is a descendent of the founding McIntosh family, including one of its most famous ancestors, Lachlan McIntosh – a General in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Melanie still has family living in McIntosh County. He is also the proud parent of two children.
