Unfortunately, I had the pleasure of being assigned to Mr. May who was very curt on the phone and provided incorrect information and quoted wrong California code when I requested him for the section of California code that applied in this instance. He did not want to hear anything and seemed to want to brush off everything I had to say. He pretty much told me that there was nothing that we could do. He claims to know real estate law and could not answer a basic question. Please do not waste your time or money talking to this "Attorney"

After one of the attorneys at Parker S refused to listen to anything that I had to say, I demanded Mr. May. (He had sent us some info on another case, seemed knowledgeable). After faxing him over the paperwork and waiting a week to hear back from him he said that there was nothing we could do and we were basically out of luck. He gave a very Token effort as if he was just responding for the sake of responding. I then went and paid for a real Attorney and paid real money and the the Attorney that I paid thousands of dollars was able to save the case, this was after I was told by Mathew that the case was lost and that there is nothing that I could do.

UTTERLY DISAPPOINTED AND PROVIDED ABSOLUTELY POOR SERVICES: I've been a member of the association with which Mathew L. May is employed for over 14 years. This is the FIRST time I've ever felt SADLY disappointed, even insulted, by an attorney's lack of communication and customer service abilities for a customer. My benefits package provides me with legal letters when requested and he actually stated, quote: "I need to tell you now that you're going to be disappointed by the letter I'm going to write for you..." He wasn't even aware of the important dates in which my case involved (ie, he didn't really read the many documents I'd provided him). This was after I'd WAITED FOR 2 MONTHS for this letter..." He almost always interrupted me with short comments revealed by his short and rude mannerisms. What a major disappointment...
