Extremely helpful
I spoke with Mathew May a few times concerning the rights I have as a real estate agent. He was very patient, understanding, intelligent and helpful. He listened to my questions without interruption or judgement and responded with clarity. He was detailed in explaining the laws, codes and my position as a real estate agent. I am incredibly grateful for his knowledge and guidance and will definitely speak to him again in the future for any of questions regarding real estate law.

Fantastic Attorney WOW
I had the pleasure of speaking with Matthew today at some length. I had a real estate dilemma. He took time to listen and then explain every concern and question I had so I could easily understand and benefitted greatly from his knowledge expertise and help. I recommend Matthew to anyone who needs a qualified outstanding attorney that takes time and has a gift of giving you a sense of peace and confidence. He is more than competent, He has a special way of helping you understand what options one has and explains everything in such a way, you feel like you will be successful in whatever you are pursuing. I am deeply grateful for Matthew and recommend him 100%. Thank you Matthew. You are a real blessing.

Totally great attention
Mr May and I have had more than a couple of detailed consults over a period of a few months (same case matter) and his knowledge of my case subject was far reaching, knowledgeable and his call backs respected my need for more helpful info and my need for promptness ! I really don't know what I would have done without his help and the services offered by Legal Shield/Parker Stanbury et al in Los Angeles. I really can't thank them all enough for the many times I have needed true and incisive legal assistance. I recommend this firm to family and friends on a regular basis! I give them a thumbs up and 5 stars.

Lacks knowledge about law
It's deeply concerning how attorneys like Matthew can remain active for over two decades while having no understanding of the laws. Matthew is the sort of attorney who, most likely, has made his living being arrogant and obsessively stubborn, simply because he at some point, passed the bar. There is a saying amongst attorneys that 'it's all how you word it'. If you word anything a certain way you will win. So the laws and codes to this sort of attorney do not really matter. An attorney can spend his career with this sort of zealous style and win enough times to make a living. The letter Matthew wrote was contradictory, did not take law into consideration, and was purely meant to be used as a bullying tactic rather than pointing out actual law violations or concerns. It was as if the letter was written by someone other than an actual attorney. Sentences were cut off, etc. It was quickly written without any care or regard to his client, seemingly, so he can make a quick buck.

I spoke to Matthew today. He was very arrogant. Spoke down to me and thought he was the super intelligent person and I did not recognize his superiority.

Does not know basic law and qoutes incorrect CA Code section
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"

Gave a token effort did very little if any research.
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...
