  • Richard Earl Hornsby

    James is one of the hardest working and most caring lawyers I know. In criminal defense, one of the most important qualities your attorney can have is the ability to understand your situation and then present your situation so that other people will understand your position. This quality leads to excellent results for his clients - because they are viewed by the prosecution as an individual and not just another defendant. Far too few criminal defense lawyers possess this simple, yet vital, quality; James does.

  • Ryan Patrick Rooth

    Mr. May is great attorney who is not afraid to think outside of the box. He fights hard for his clients and the results he obtains proves it. He uses his experience and relationships with the prosecutors to determine which strategy will work best for his client. Mr. May does not backdown when his clients life is on the line. He advocates vigorously with the prosecutors and the judges to obtain the best results for his clients. Mr. May is one of the few attorneys I know who looks forward to his next jury trial. That is the sign of a great litigator.
