Jessica May

Associate Attorney

Practice Philosophy

The law is often a difficult field to navigate, and Jessica considers it a privilege to assist clients as they face difficult and challenging situations which can significantly impact their lives.


Jessica was raised in Eugene, Oregon, and is a 2005 graduate of Marist Catholic High School. After graduating from Marist, Jessica moved to Omaha, Nebraska to attend college at Creighton University, where she majored in International Relations. As an undergraduate, Jessica served as the president of Panhellenic Council, during which time she worked closely with the university’s administration to develop the school’s Greek community and enhance the university’s relationship with the greater Omaha community through outreach programs.

Following graduation, Jessica began her studies at Creighton University School of Law, where it quickly became apparent that her ability to analyze and present an argument made her perfectly suited for the courtroom. While honing her trial skills, Jessica worked as a senior certified law student for the United States Attorney’s Office in the District of Nebraska and was awarded the Excellence for the Future Award for her performance in Trial Practice.

After earning her J.D. in 2012, Jessica returned to Oregon where she has worked as a physician contract administrator for PeaceHealth, and where she serves on the board of directors of the Michael J. Dwyer Foundation. Recently she and her fiancé moved from Portland to Eugene to be close to friends and family.

Hobbies and Interests

Many of Jessica’s interests stem from her Italian heritage, including cooking, wine tasting, and spending as much time as possible with family and friends. An avid sports fan, Jessica enjoys cheering on the Oregon Ducks and her Creighton Bluejays.
