Andrew has been a member of the Washington State Bar Association for over 15 years. For the past decade, he has narrowed his legal practice to focus primarily on the intricacies of family law. With wide-ranging experience in tactful litigation in divorce and custody cases, coupled with years of knowledge as a skilled mediator, he stands as one of the most prominent family law attorneys in King County, Washington.

In addition to his litigation experience, Andrew further assists clients in mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution as a trained mediator. Andrew received training in interest-based mediation from the University of Washington. With a trained mediator and seasoned litigator on your side, you have all bases covered.

Andrew graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in political science. He continued his path into the legal profession at the University of Maryland School of Law, graduating with high honors and in the top 10% of his class. During his time in law school, Andrew was selected by faculty to be a teaching assistant for first-year legal writing classes. Among his various achievements and awards, Andrew held the Meyerowitz Prize for best brief in Maryland’s annual appellate advocacy competition.

Andrew’s passion for the legal profession developed early on. When his high school mock trial team went to state finals, the judge offered Andrew a clerkship position on the spot, conditional only on his successful completion of law school.

Andrew’s attention to detail, strategic methods, and top-notch legal advocacy skills have won him many cases in and out of the courtroom. He passionately fights to protect what his clients hold most important to them.

“The measure of a good result must include its cost and durability – whether it restores rather than erodes stability in our clients’ lives and livelihood.” – Andrew May

Excellent help with my divorce
I hired Andrew to review documents produced by my wife's lawyer (she was the petitioner), and to give me general guidance on the divorce process, my rights, etc. Andrew was always extremely quick in getting back to me, even taking my calls in his car on occasion, and his advice was uniformly helpful to my getting through the process. There were long delays (sometimes months) caused by my wife's lawyer. One thing that I believe speaks to Andrew's character is that he reached out to me to see what was going on after not hearing from me for a couple of months. A less concerned attorney, given that I had prepaid for the legal service, would have just waited to hear from me or even hoped not to. I was completely happy with Andrew's services and would wholeheartedly recommend using him for any legal needs in his area of practice.
