James Brandon May, born Pikeville, Kentucky.
Graduated with Honors from Johnson Central High School. I attended Morehead State University, majoring in Govermnet with a minor in Legal Studies. At Morehead State University, I was awarded Canadian Studies Scholarship which allowed me to participate in the Canadian Internship Program. As part of the Canadian Internship Program, I lived in Ottawa, Canada and worked with Member of Parliament, Joe Comartin.
Upon graduating from Morehead State and upon completion of the Canadian Internship Program, I attended Ohio Northern Universities Pettit College of Law, where I was named to the Dean's List and received a Certificate of Achievement in recognition for my studies in the area of Civil Litigation. While at ONU, I represented indigent clients at the ONU Legal Clinic under the supervision of staff attorneys and under the authority of the Ohio Supreme Court.
I currently practice at Hogan & Derifield in Louisa, Kentucky. I am also Assistant County Attorney, Lawrence County, Kentucky.
