Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Melissa Wilson

    I endorse this lawyer. He is a phenomenal person and attorney. James and I went to law school and then worked together for many years at the Public Defender's Office. Over the years, I've had ample opportunity to witness Mr. May in action. He is always well prepared and a great advocate.

  • Steven George Lavely

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. May is a tireless advocate for his clients. His reputation, which is well earned, is that of extreme determination and skill. He can't be outworked. His knowledge of the law and his ability to persuade a jury is nothing short of mesmerizing. He receives my highest recommendation. If I were a person with criminal concerns Mr. May would be my first and only choice.
