About Me

I'm a Board Certified  Administrative Law problem solver: a litigation attorney specializing in administrative law (a special area of law focusing on representation before licensing boards, regulatory agencies, and commissions). I aggressively represent and defend clients at informal settlement conferences (ISC), enforcement committee meetings (EC), the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH), Travis County district court, and the courts of appeals, specifically related to these agencies:



I am also active in helping to shape Texas PIA and FOIA (Open Records Act) requests and in pursuing Open Meetings Act violations, rule interpretation, administrative rule-making, and rule challenges, and defending my clients who are subject to agency enforcement actions and administrative penalties before all local, state and federal governmental bodies.

  • Eugene Franklin Hopkins IV

    Jason Ray is the epitome of the complete administrative law attorney. Jason is one of the very few attorneys in Texas to have represented clients at every stage of the administrative law process: informal agency conferences, appeal of final agency orders, judicial reviews in district court, and even oral arguments at the Third Court of Appeals. More importantly, Jason prevails for his clients at every level. Having forged great working relationships with the majority of Texas agencies, Jason is able to resolve his clients’ matters in a practical, cost-effective manner. Many times Jason is able to provide the agency with the information it needs from his client, and avoid not only the future costs of litigation, but also avoid his client having the stain of a final agency order.
