    • I do not recommend Valerie May.
    • I hired Valerie more than 3 years ago.
    • Valerie handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Not even in my wildest dream would I recommend this lawyer. Her fees are excessive. I found a lawyer right in Pittsburgh that cost only a small fraction of what Valerie charged. When asked for a refund of $500, after finding a reasonable lawyer, she told me that it covered documents that were photocopied.

  2. May Law Group helped me to get an Approved Waiver!

    • I recommend Valerie May.
    • I hired Valerie 1-3 years ago.

    I have been struggling to get my spouse to live legally in the United States since 2004. My spouse needed to file a Waiver to get his U.S. Green Card. I searched for help everywhere and was told that my case was more than likely, impossible to get an approval. I filed a waiver before and it was denied, but I just believed that help was available somewhere. I found May Law Group on the internet and read that they have a high Approval rates for Waiver cases. I spoke directly with Valerie May, and she accepted my case. The staff was friendly and supportive and kept me updated every step of the way. They went above and beyond to ensure that I supplied the right documents and made the right statements. They presented my case to the USCIS in July 2013, and after a few months, I was totally amazed when I received the GREAT news from Allison, at MLG, that the Waiver was APPROVED! I proudly recommend May Law Group to everyone! My family and I, are very happy and grateful.

    • Valerie handled my Immigration matter.

    Valerie May took on our case and felt confident she could handle the problems within the case. One thing we insisted on was being able to get a response to any questions we had in a timely manner. We sent the money she requested to submit with the paperwork to the courts, the paperwork was submitted without the money and denied. The next thing we knew she asked the judge to release her from our case. In our opinion, the money should have been returned to us. She charged us excessive fees to make a photocopy and mail us a document. We spent a great deal of money and got nothing in return. She did not even have the courtesy to tell us we no longer had an attorney. We would not recommend her firm if you want communication pertaining to your case, answers to your questions, or knowing where all the money you hand over is going.

    Valerie May was successful with my case when another attorney told me it was hopeless. She is very kind and professional.

    I am so lucky to have found this attorneys. I have worked with several attorneys in the past on my Visa, but none have been as good as Valerie May. I could not believe how quickly she got my Visa approved. She is number one in my book.
