Greetings.  Originally from Delhi, Louisiana, Baton Rouge has served as my home since 1997.  I attended LSU in 1997 and received my Bachelors in Political Science.  Thereafter, I attended Southern University Law Center and received my Juris Doctorate.  I have served as a law clerk (staff attorney) in the civil district court and juvenile court in Baton Rouge, where I gained invaluable knowledge about various areas of law.

My practice includes adoptions, personal injury (including but not limited to automobile accidents and slip and fall cases) and successions ( estate planning).  I have completed over 200 adoptions (private, agency, intra-family and recognition of foreign decree).  I have also secured multiple 5 and 6 figure settlements for my personal injury clients.

My goal with my practice is to help people, whether by forming a happy family (adoption), helping my clients navigate the legal system during a difficult time (succession) or securing adequate compensation for a wrong that they have suffered.  In my practice, I pride myself on 3 things: knowledge, results and phenomenal customer service.  I am always in constant communication with my clients, keeping them up to speed with the status of their case.  I am a member of the Louisiana State Bar Association.  

I enjoy watching sports, traveling, fishing and eating.  Looking forward to helping you.

Jason

Excellent Attorney
We contacted Jason for a succession and it was the best decision to hire him. He was patient, thorough and knowledgeable. Jason was very easy to work with. He communicated with my family through the entire process and he answered every question. I’d recommend Jason to anyone.

Adoptive Parent
Adoption can be a joyful yet very emotionally stressful time. Jason was able to lead us through this process with clarity and ease. Not only would I recommend Jason to you, but we have personally used him to adopt four of our children. Nothing says "satisfied" like a repeat customer. Thank you Jason!!

Excellent Adoption Attorney
Jason was wonderful! He fought hard to help finalize my daughter's adoption right before Christmas. When it didn't seem possible, Jason stood and believed with me that it would happen. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was done and in place to finalize it. It was a true Christmas miracle. Thank you Jason for being a part of giving my daughter and I the best Christmas gift of becoming a family!

Professional
Jason is the best Personal Injury Attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney at a great price, then Jason is your attorney.

He handed a motor vehicle accident for my daughter. He was very professional, friendly and handled the case timely. He explained legal terms to me that I did not understand.

Probate and Succession
From the first time, I met Attorney May, I knew I was in the best hands possible. He represented me in a Probate and Succession family matter. Attorney May immediately took action and informed me about every aspect of the case from the beginning until the end. The process was smooth because he stayed on top of things and he was always positive. Phone calls and emails were returned in a timely manner. I was beyond pleased with the outcome and I appreciate everything he did to help me. Attorney May is very professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He truly cares about his clients. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal advice or representation. Thanks again, Attorney May!!!!

My boys
Mr. May helped me with 2 adoptions at two different times. My boys are now 9 and 10 years old. I would not change a thing they are my life. Mr. May was very patient with me, kind and respectful. I would recommend him for any adoption.

"I would recommend his services to others who seek representation"
Mr. May represented me in a injury case where I was hit by another driver of a vehicle while parked in my vehicle. Mr. May advised me of the various processes and what was in my best interest. He was very diligent in his effort to respond to my questions. The experience was positive and plan to hire Mr. May again if needed. I would recommend his services to others who seek representation.

Wonderful attorney!
Jason May was the adoption attorney for our son. Jason was not only skilled and well versed in the needs of his case, but he was incredibly responsive and kind in all interactions with us. Jason kept us abreast of the status of the case, and he worked hard to advocate for our sons needs, especially given that this all occurred during the early days of COVID. We are so grateful to Jason, and we would HIGHLY recommend him and his services. If we are gifted the opportunity to adopt again, we would use Jason in a heartbeat!

Excellent work
Jason has assisted my family in drawing up several wills and has completed the successions for other family members also. Jason is always professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and always is willing to assist in anything that we needed. I will defiantly use his professional services again.

Probate and Succession
After consulting with Attorney Jason R. May, following the death of my sister, my son and I hired Attorney May to handle the "Probate & Succession" matters. It is my most humble and honest opinion that we could not have hired a more knowledgeable and thorough firm and attorney to handle my sister's Estate. Attorney May came to us through a recommendation, which turned out to be very well deserved. He prepared and filed all necessary documents in a timely fashion that helped to expedite the entire process. Also, the same care and professionalism was taken in matters that followed the original filings, which are sometimes unforeseen in matters of Probates & Successions. My son and I are extremely pleased with Attorney May's representation. Especially in light of the fact that his communication skills and follow up was excellent, which is often times missing with some attorneys. For us, communication and follow up were especially important due to my sister's death coming during the time my family and I were in the middle of relocating from California to Florida, and my sister's Estate was located in Louisiana. Coming from an engineering background myself where communication and follow up is an necessity, Attorney Jason R. May is definitely deserving of a Five Star rating.

Jason Ryan May
Mr. May was hired as my lawyer for the adoption of my son. He was always very polite and very helpful. Each time I had contact with Mr. May, he was able to answer any questions we had. The instructions for what we needed to follow were always very easy and clear to follow. Mr. May always either answered my calls or returned my call very soon afterwards. He kept us updated on any information he was privy to or we needed to know. He was also punctual and professional in court.

The best
Mr. May is a God sent man. He has been there for me and my family day, nights, and yes even on the weekends. He is a very positive man and " can't " is not in his vocabulary, I believe. If it wasn't for him, it scares me to think where my grandkids would be now. I owe him so deeply for our loving family and the kids are so happy. Thanks Mr May . Troy
