Jason R. L. Major
Jason is a partner and founder of Lehmann Major List, PLLC. Jason has 20 years of experience litigating in a broad range of legal areas. Early on in his career, he had an extended focus on complex litigation against the tobacco industry. Then Jason took part in a series of class actions focused on returning money wrongfully withheld from consumers by insurance companies. Today his practice is centered on employment law, personal injury law, and civil rights, but he is still able and willing to assist clients who have unusual or esoteric litigation matters.
Jason has a long track record of successfully representing employees in wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, and whistleblower/retaliation claims.
Jason has represented clients with discrimination-based claims before the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Jason has also negotiated employment contracts, severance agreements, and ADA disability accommodation agreements between employers and employees. He has also assisted elected officials in matters including election law, Town Meeting law, and helped municipal employees with the recovery of vested benefits.
Jason also vindicates the rights of clients who have been injured in automobile accidents and slip-and-falls. He has also represented many clients in cases involving claims of police or government misconduct, including excessive force, false arrest, and malicious prosecution.
Jason successfully represented clients in an environmental contamination case, and has provided invaluable assistance to small businesses in a variety of litigation matters. Jason has also fought for homeowners in the context of insurance coverage disputes, including the insurance company denials of fire loss and other catastrophic damage claims.
Jason has also represented clients in matters involving firearms law, and drafts NFA firearms trusts for firearms collectors.
In 2020, Jason was appointed by Governor Sununu to the N.H. Personnel Appeals Board, where he hears and decides appeals brought by N.H. state employees related to disciplinary and classification matters. In 2021, Jason was nominated by the other members of the PAB to be Chairperson of the Board, and subsequently appointed to that position by the Governor.
